Floor Sealers (Kemiko)

Free downloadable 3-part specification to specify floor sealers for exposed concrete floors by Epmar Corporation.

Membrane and impregnating sealers are used as stand-alone floor finishes and overcoating for decorative stained concrete floor systems.

Concrete floors are a popular choice for their durability and versatility. However, to ensure they stand the test of time, it’s crucial to invest in a quality sealer. In this guide, we’ll explore four types of topical concrete floor sealers: acrylic, water repellent, polyurethane, and ultraviolet curable sealers. Let’s dive in.

Acrylic Sealers

Acrylic sealers are an excellent choice for those looking for a cost-effective and easy-to-apply option. They provide a glossy finish that enhances the concrete’s appearance. Acrylic sealers are water-based and dry quickly, making them ideal for indoor and outdoor applications. They protect against mild abrasion and water damage but may require more frequent reapplication in high-traffic areas.

Benefits

  • Affordability: Acrylic sealers are budget-friendly, making them an excellent choice for homeowners on a budget.
  • Ease of Application: They are easy to apply and dry quickly, reducing downtime during the sealing process.
  • Enhanced Aesthetics: Acrylic sealers provide a glossy finish, enhancing the natural color of the concrete.

Water Repellent Sealers

Water-repellent silane sealers are designed to repel water and other liquids, making them perfect for protecting concrete against moisture damage. These sealers penetrate deep into the concrete, forming a barrier that helps prevent water infiltration. Water repellent sealers do not significantly alter the appearance of the concrete, which may be a consideration for those seeking a glossy finish.

Benefits

  • Water Resistance: Highly effective at preventing water intrusion, making them ideal for outdoor applications.
  • Breathability: Unlike some sealers, water repellent sealers allow moisture to escape, reducing the risk of trapped moisture-related issues.

Polyurethane Sealers

Polyurethane sealers offer exceptional durability and resistance to abrasion, chemicals, and UV rays. They are available in both water-based and solvent-based formulations. These sealers are a top choice for garage floors, commercial spaces, and high-traffic areas where long-lasting protection is essential. They come in matte, satin, or glossy finishes, allowing you to choose the look you prefer.

Benefits

  • High Durability: Polyurethane sealers are highly resistant to wear and abrasion, making them suitable for industrial and commercial spaces.
  • Chemical Resistance: They offer excellent protection against chemicals, making them a top choice for garage floors.

Ultraviolet Curable Sealers

UV-curable coatings are the cutting-edge solution for concrete floor protection. These coatings cure rapidly when exposed to UV light, providing a tough and resilient finish. UV-curable coatings are often used in commercial and industrial settings, thanks to their outstanding resistance to chemicals, abrasion, and UV damage. While they require professional application due to the UV curing process, they offer unparalleled performance and longevity.

Benefits

  • Rapid Curing: UV curable sealers offer quick curing times, allowing for minimal downtime during application.
  • Highly Durable: They provide a tough, long-lasting protective layer that can withstand heavy traffic.
