Concrete Sealer X-2 is a higher concentration sealer than Concrete Sealer X-1 for porous or older concrete.
Concrete Sealer X-2 is a higher concentration sealer than Concrete Sealer X-1. It creates the same chemical reactions within the concrete as Concrete Sealer X-1 and it has the same physical properties, coverage rates and application procedures.
Concrete Sealer X-2 has been specifically designed to seal very porous concrete or concrete blocks. This sealer is also recommended for poured concrete if the concrete is more than 10 years old or if signs of seepage or damage such as dusting and efflorescence are already evident. It is also recommended that this sealer is used on outdoor concrete surfaces which may be exposed to severe weather conditions. This sealer is not recommended for decorative, stamped or aggregate concrete.
Concrete Sealer X-2 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-2 is 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 concrete 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-2 is environmentally friendly, non-toxic and nonflammable because it does not contain chemical solvents or release any VOC or noxious fumes.
Concrete Sealer X-2 is a ready to use, DIY type sealer which has a shelf life of at least two years. This concrete sealer is also guaranteed to last for the life of your concrete
