Description Water-based nano-acrylic top coat sealer for protecting decorative concrete stains, coatings and other porous masonry surfaces. SmartSeal AU also includes urethane and either 25% or 34% solids content. Permanent (non-sacrificial) anti-graffiti coating. Water-based polymeric nano-infusion based formula seals and protects vertical masonry surfaces from graffiti & paint. Water-based, inorganic elastomeric concrete waterproofing sealer (non-reactive) with remarkable adhesion. Protects many porous architectural surfaces from water & liquids, including concrete, brick, stucco, and wood. Water-based polymer modified rubber silicone membrane. Creates a water and vapor barrier membrane that completely retards moisture & vapor transmission for below grade (subterranean) surfaces. Chemical resistant 2-part epoxy top coat sealer with 100% solids content. Use for protecting decorative concrete coatings, commercial and industrial hardscapes.

Description DIY-grade concrete and masonry weatherproofer and fortifier. Water-based nano-silicone formula penetrates deep into the surface & chemically reacts to create a chemical bond that helps prevent damage from many common problems, including repeated freeze-thaw cycles. PRO-grade concrete and masonry weatherproofer and fortifier. Water-based nano-silicone / lithium silicate formula penetrates deep into the surface & chemically reacts to create a very strong chemical bond that helps prevent damage from many common problems, including repeated freeze-thaw cycles. Advanced concrete densifier. Water-based nano-silica (concentrate) permanently bonds with existing concrete chemicals to improve surface density and hardness (during polishing process). Offers incredible protection and longevity. Improves the bond between coatings and treated concrete or mortar surface. Traditional concrete densifier. Water-based lithium (concentrate) increases surface density and hardness. Preserves the structural integrity of concrete during the polishing process. Reduces liquid penetration and provides longevity to the performance of the substrate.
