Key Market Insights
Concrete sealers provide visual enhancement as well as topical protection from stains and chemicals. Additionally, these sealers bond active ingredients within the substrate that blocks surface moisture and provide longer life to concrete surfaces. There are two main categories today, topical sealers and penetrating sealers.
Concrete sealers, based on their chemistries include acrylic, epoxy, polyurethane (PU), silicates, and siloxanes among others. These sealers form a protective sheet on the surface and enhances the visual appeal of the overall surface. Due to their decorative and visual enhancement and potential stain and chemical resistance, they are a preferred choice for many applications.
