Concrete is a highly durable material. The durability is the result of the specific design of the concrete mixture, the amount of entrained air and water in the compound, and the placement and curing of the concrete. Concrete is long-lasting, low-maintenance, and cost-effective.
Over time, however, concrete is susceptible to water damage, staining, surface damage, and corrosion. This deterioration leads to aesthetic and structural problems as well as safety concerns. To protect concrete flooring, most companies opt to add acrylic concrete sealers.
Acrylic sealers form a protective film on top of concrete that forms a resistant barrier. These sealants are available in both water-based and solvent-based formulas. Both mixtures consist of acrylic pieces suspended in a liquid. If the sealer is water-based, the liquid is water. Solvent-based liquids used are generally xylene or acetone. Once applied, the liquid evaporates, allowing the acrylic particles to form a film on the surface. This protective layer has numerous benefits.

Both solvent and water-based acrylic concrete sealers have an easy application process and economical. They are optimal for industrial, commercial, residential, and institutional concrete flooring. While both types of sealers work well on interior and exterior surfaces, every project is unique, and each sealer has a specific function.
