All decorative concrete surfaces should be sealed with an acrylic concrete sealer to maintain color and general appearance over time. For best results sealers
should be either sprayed or carefully applied with a short-napped roller.
For Exterior Concrete Floors, use a solvent-based, Acrylic Sealer. To prevent slip hazard, add Non-Slip Additive to sealer prior to application.
Depending on sun exposure, temperature and general weather conditions, the average acrylic top coat sealer will last 2-3 years
