All about Sealed Concrete

In sealed concrete, the concrete is cleaned, allowed to dry.  A thin layer of acrylic, epoxy or Urethane sealer is applied just like paint over the concrete surface.  The layer of sealer fills the voids in concrete.

Types of Sealed Concrete

Sealed concrete are of different types mostly they are silicon-based sealer, linseed oil-based solutions, acrylics, epoxy, and polyurethane sealers.

sealers  are broadly of two types. The first one is Silicon based the second one is organic resins such as acrylics, epoxies, or polyurethane.

Types of Sealed Concrete

Epoxy concrete finish

In epoxy sealer, a layer of epoxy material is used over the concrete.

Acrylic Sealer

A thin film of acrylic sealer is applied over the concrete surface just like an epoxy sealer. Acrylic sealer is water repellant

Silicon-based Sealers

Silicon-based sealers are most common. They resist oxidation and offer good heat resistance and thermal stability.

Advantage of sealed concrete over polished concrete

High stain and chemical resistant. Less installation time. Glossy and smooth. Low cost. Less labour intensive than polished concrete.
