THE BENEFITS OF USING A CONCRETE SEALER
Concrete, masonry and brickwork are porous and vulnerable to damage caused by frost and moisture penetration.
Porous substrates such as concrete, masonry and brickwork can hold water, which can cause damage. Moisture ingress on brickwork and concrete not only causes 80% of surface damage, but can also cause damp, mould, algae and associated health problems.
These problems can be hard to fix and are better avoided in the first place. 'Spalling' of brickwork, concrete and masonry can also look very unsightly and can be very expensive to put right.
To ensure concrete surfaces are protected and do not deteriorate quickly it is best to apply a concrete sealer or brick sealer. Our advanced range of impregnating concrete sealers and brick sealers are easy to apply, provide excellent long-term protection and can be used externally or internally. Our concrete sealers are super hydrophobic, providing the same protection as in nature.
Unlike many conventional sealers, the concrete impregnating sealers work by penetrating into the substrate. Microscopic particles of the concrete sealer seep into the substrate, sealing the porous voids and tiny cracks from within. This leaves the brickwork or concrete water resistant - and because the sealer is not purely on the surface, long term protection is guaranteed.
Application is simple – by paint brush, sprayer or roller. Ensure the surface is clean and dry, apply 1 coat to saturation, and for best results apply an additional 1-2 ‘wet on wet' coats, with approximately 15 minutes in between.
Smartseal Concrete Sealer is long lasting and easy to apply
With correct application, a lifespan in excess of 15 years on vertical surfaces and 10 years on horizontal surfaces can be expected with routine after care. Cleaning using conventional cleaning products will not damage or reduce the lifespan of the sealer.
