Like any other surface or material, if concrete is not properly cared for it can become damaged over time. That’s why we’ve partnered with top manufacturers to offer homeowners a range of versatile concrete sealants that can be used on a variety of concrete surfaces, both internal and external to the home. Our concrete sealer can be used on driveways, patios, or garden paths. It works by penetrating the porous surface of the concrete, creating an invisible barrier which protects against moisture penetration, one of the most common causes of damaged concrete.
Benefits of Using Concrete Sealant
When properly applied, using concrete sealer won’t just protect your surfaces, it’ll also greatly reduce the amount of routine maintenance needed. Thanks to the way our concrete sealer keeps moisture out of the concrete, organic material such as moss will find it very difficult to grow on the surface. What’s more, cleaning away everyday dirt and debris will be made much easier, as it won’t be able to become rooted in the concrete thanks to the invisible barrier protecting the concrete’s porous surface.
Uses of Concrete Sealer
Our concrete sealer is highly versatile and can be used for a wide variety of internal and external applications. These include patios, floors, walls, and driveways. Designed for use on both vertical and horizontal surfaces, you’re sure to achieve a beautiful, long-lasting finish. Thanks to its highly water-repellent formulation, it effectively fights many of the most common issues concrete surfaces face from water ingress. This means that your concrete surface will be well-protected against most causes of future damage.

How Do You Apply Concrete Sealer?
The exact method of application depends on the surface you intend to seal. However, all of our surface sealing products have been designed with ease-of-use in mind. So you won’t need any specialist tools, just a simple garden sprayer will do. Just make sure you also wear proper safety equipment when applying this concrete sealant, such as a mask, goggles and gloves.
Prior to sealing concrete, it should be cleaned. Do note however that if you’ve used large amounts of water to clean the concrete surface, such as with a hose or pressure washer, ensure that all water has completely evaporated out of the concrete’s pores before sealing. You should allow at least two days for concrete to dry.
As always, test the concrete sealant on a small area first to make sure it’s suitable. For very porous concrete surfaces such as tamped concrete floors, driveways and garden paths which are not fully screeded, our concrete sealer may need to be applied at a coverage ratio of 3m2 per litre. For floors or surfaces that have a smoother finish, the application ratio may only need to be around 8-10m2 per litre.
For ideal results, apply a second, lighter coat “wet on wet” before the first coat has fully dried. This should generally be done around 20-60 minutes after the first coat was applied, however it does depend on the ambient temperature and conditions.
How Long Does Concrete Sealant Last?
If properly applied, you can expect our concrete sealer to offer you up to 5 years of protection. Depending upon how the condition of your concrete develops over time, a light re-application of a thin coat of concrete sealer may be necessary to “top up” the protective layer.
How Do These Concrete Sealers Work?
Concrete sealers work by penetrating the porous voids and “veins” found under the surface of the concrete. By doing so, the concrete is sealed from the inside, protected against water ingress by an invisible barrier which repels moisture.
