After you have done the hard work of pouring and customizing your concrete slab, all that is left is to seal it. Concrete sealers can be used on both standard and decorative concrete surfaces to add slip resistance and to provide protection against foot traffic, abrasions, spills, and weather (for outdoor surfaces).
Most Popular Types of Concrete Sealers
When it comes to concrete sealers, The Stamp Store offers the highest quality and the greatest variety. The most popular concrete sealers on the market include the following:
Solvent-Based Acrylic Sealers – This type of sealer is probably the most commonly used sealer because it is easy to apply and very forgiving. Solvent-based sealers like SS Supreme dry very quickly after application, and it is easy to reseal them if needed. SS Supreme comes in a high-gloss, non-yellowing sealer that offers excellent resistance to sun, rain, stains, freezing temperatures, and a variety of pollutants. It works on most concrete surfaces and is easy to apply.
Water-Based Acrylic Sealers – These sealers are very user-friendly, and they are very durable, though they do have a slightly longer dry time. SS EpoSeal 20 is a great option for water-based acrylic sealers, especially for indoor applications. This sealer offers a satin or low-gloss finish with enhanced water resistance and hot tire resistance.
Polyurethane Sealers – This type of sealer offers excellent abrasion and scratch resistance but does require precise measuring and application. SS Poly Pro is a special UV-resistant sealer with a high-gloss finish that can be used for indoor and outdoor applications. It can be used as a primer or as a top coat for water-based urethane sealers.
Epoxy Sealers – These sealers are often used as primers because they are very strong and durable. Epoxy sealers should be used with polyaspartic or polyurethane top coats to ensure maximum abrasion resistance. SS Water Base 40 Epoxy is a low-odor formula that can be used as a primer or top coat for interior applications. It cures quickly and offers reduced re-coat times as well.
Polyaspartic Sealers – This type of sealer offers the most durability, adhesion, and abrasion resistance as well as excellent gloss retention. Polyaspartic sealers like SS Polyaspartic dry very quickly, and, though they are a little more expensive, they offer the best longevity and durability.
