CONCRETE SEALERS FOR EVERY PROJECT

Direct Colors guide to help you select the right sealer for your project

ACRYLIC CONCRETE SEALER

Acrylic sealers lay down a film of acrylic resin that provides excellent performance for their cost. High quality acrylic resins are derived from methacylic acid and offer stain protection, great water resistance, adhesion and won’t turn yellow when exposed to sunlight.

Acrylic concrete sealers are available in both water- and solvent-based formulations as well as high gloss and satin finish.

PENETRATING CONCRETE SEALERS

Penetrating sealers are made of resins that literally penetrate the concrete forming a chemical barrier to water, oil and dirt. 

Penetrating sealers are salt protectant, dust proofer that hardens, seals and protect concrete. This sealer’s matte finish which will not alter the color or look of the concrete floor.

POLYURETHANE SEALERS

Polyurethane sealer lays a thicker seal (almost double) than acrylic sealers. Although, polyurethanes sealers are more durable, keep in mind that resurfacing sealed floors will be high intensive as old polyurethane needs to be mechanically remove before reapplication. 

Polyurethane concrete sealers are available in both solvent- and water-based formulations as well as gloss. The solvent based formulation is only available in gloss finish. The water-based formulation is available in satin and gloss finish.

OUTDOOR CONCRETE SEALERS

CONCRETE PATIO FLOORS

Solvent-based, satin finish acrylic sealer is our customer’s the top choice for outdoor patio floors. These sealers are durable, non-slip and easy to apply with a sprayer.

If you would like a gloss finish, use the solvent-based high gloss acrylic sealer and add an anti-slip additive to the top coat.

Acrylic sealers on patios should be reapplied every 2-3 years if the patio is in direct sunlight. A covered patio need to be sealed less frequently.

CONCRETE OUTDOOR OVEN

The most appropriate sealer choice for an outdoor pizza oven made from integrally colored concrete would the Penetrating Concrete Sealer. Because it is absorbed entirely into the pores of the concrete, it forms no membrane on the surface and is not vulnerable to melting or discoloration. Keep in mind this is a matte sealer that affords little or no gloss after application.

that can create a slip-risk in the presence of moisture, especially on outdoor concrete surfaces. This type of seal also prevents concrete from “breathing” moisture out of the concrete which is not ideal for a pool deck. Further, if the concrete cannot breathe, an unsightly white haze may form under the sealer layer.
