Choosing the right sealer for your concrete project is an integral part of finishing the job right. This final layer of protection can:
- Enhance the appearance of decorative concrete work
- Block moisture, dirt, oil, and stains
- Protect against excess wear
The type of concrete sealer you choose will depend on the type of project. Two of our most commonly requested sealers are W.R. Meadows CS309-25 for commercial and industrial application, and ICS High Gloss Sealer for decorative concrete applications.
DECORATIVE CONCRETE SEALER
ICS High Gloss Non-Yellowing Sealer enhances the architectural and aesthetic qualities of decorative concrete surfaces with a lustrous, glossy finish. ICS High Gloss Sealer has been formulated to seal, protect, and enhance concrete by producing a hard, breathable, long-lasting, attractive, high-sheen finish. This non-yellowing, acrylic-based, liquid sealing compound is clear, transparent, durable, and easy to apply. The quick-drying, high gloss concrete sealer can be used on colored and stamped concrete surfaces and may brighten the natural coloration.
ICS High Gloss features superior moisture retention, but should not be applied to concrete that will be exposed to excessive moisture. It offers improved resistance against UV light, water, salt, oil, alkalis, mild acids and petroleum spirits. ICS High Gloss Non-Yellowing Sealer can be applied to horizontal or vertical surfaces.
In contrast to ICS High Gloss Sealer for decorative concrete surfaces, CS309-25 Non-Yellowing, Acrylic Curing and Sealing Compound is a “workhorse” sealer used to simultaneously cure and seal exterior concrete surfaces such as driveways, sidewalks, patios, parking areas, and other typically gray concrete surfaces. The use of CS-309-25 on any exterior concrete surface provides a durable, long-lasting finish that offers improved resistance to chemicals, oil, grease, deicing salts, and abrasion. This W.R. Meadows sealer applies easily and dries quickly for less down time.
CS309-25’s clear, transparent, ready-to-apply, non-yellowing liquid compound is formulated from special acrylic polymers and quick-evaporating solvents that effectively cures and seals freshly placed concrete. When properly applied, CS-309-25 produces a hard, dense, high compressive strength concrete that offers improved resistance to chemicals, oil, grease, deicing salts, and abrasion. CS309-25 Non-Yellowing, Acrylic Curing and Sealing Compound will minimize hair-checking as well as premature cracking, dusting, spalling, and other common defects that result when concrete is not properly cured.
Both CS-309-25 and ICS High Gloss sealers are VOC-compliant.
