Concrete Sealer X-1 is a permanent silicate based deep penetrating sealer which means that it is guaranteed to last forever.
Concrete Sealer X-1 is a permanent silicate based deep penetrating sealer which means that it is guaranteed to last for the life of your concrete because it chemically bonds to the concrete to become part of its integral structure. It is highly effective in making concrete physically stronger and denser, protecting it against frost and salt while increasing its resistance to stains, acids, alkalis, moisture, mold and mildew. This sealer will cure damp and wet basements by preventing hydrostatic water from penetrating through the concrete. It will also stop dusting, efflorescence, spalling, pitting, crumbling and prevent mold, mildew and algae growth. The sealer will seal the concrete to significantly reduce the level of radon gas penetration which is known to cause lung cancer by the EPA.
Concrete Sealer X-1 can be used in all commercial and residential concrete applications to treat damp or wet concrete basements, concrete floors, concrete walls, concrete driveways and sidewalks, concrete garage floors, concrete warehouse floors, concrete storage tanks, concrete pipes, concrete blocks, grout, mortar and stucco. It can also be used to extend the life of exterior wood including fences, patios, decks, cedar and wood shingles.
Concrete Sealer X-1 is an easy to apply using a brush, medium nap roller or low pressure sprayer at any temperature between 40 and 80°F. The surface to be treated does not need any special treatment but it must be oil and dust free to allow proper penetration of the sealer. You should check the surface of your concrete before applying this sealer to make sure it absorbs drops of water within a few seconds, if it beads up then use Eco Concrete Etcher prior to applying this sealer. It will cover approximately 200 to 400 sf/gal/app depending on the concretes' porosity and two coats are recommended. Typically 5 gallons will seal a maximum of 1,000 sf of poured concrete using the two required applications but this coverage can be lower depending on the concrete porosity.
Concrete Sealer X-1 penetrates through the capillaries of the concrete to a maximum depth of up to 4" where it chemically neutralizes damaging chemicals to form a hard insoluble structure based on calcium silicate and calcium hydroxide. Unlike surface coatings this sealer will not be damaged by efflorescence or be worn down by heavy traffic because it is permanent.
Concrete Sealer X-1 leaves a natural finish (no sheen) after application, it is UV resistant, non-yellowing, breathable and the surface will not be slippery. This sealer is not a repellent coating so the concrete can be painted after it has been sealed with increased paint adhesion because the sealer neutralizes the alkalis in the concrete preventing saponification of the paint. Adhesives and epoxy coatings can also be applied over the sealed concrete with no adverse effects.
Concrete Sealer X-1 is environmentally friendly, non-toxic and nonflammable because it does not contain chemical solvents or release any VOC or noxious fumes.
Concrete Sealer X-1 is not recommended for stamped, decorative or aggregate concrete.
