How does StableCrete Concrete Sealer work?
StableCrete Concrete Sealer was designed to penetrate up to 4 inches into masonry, concrete, plaster, stucco, precast concrete, pavers and most natural stone by soaking in from the surface and migrating down through the voids in the substrate to seal and waterproof the substrate. Typical coverage is 200 sf/gal.
As it soaks into the substrate’s matrix, it concurrently binds all component parts into a denser solid. Once this penetration takes place, the free lime and alkali are encapsulated so that they do not react with topical chemicals or the environment. The concrete matrix increases in density it becomes waterproofed and resistant to water, acid, saltwater, deicing salts, oil, and grease.
StableCrete will also stop dusting, rutting and spalling as well as help prevent deterioration of the surface such as cracking, crumbling, seepage or pitting while simultaneously increasing the density and tensile strength of the concrete matrix.
All voids within the concrete are filled thus preventing any penetration of water or contaminants from the surface either horizontally or vertically. Contaminants cannot be absorbed by the concrete matrix and instead stay on top of the surface where they can more easily be washed off or removed (e.g. rust stains from irrigation, red clay stains, organics, etc.)
BENEFITS OF USING STABLECRETE CONCRETE SEALER
1. It is inert, inorganic, non-toxic, odorless, non-flammable, (Green Product).
2. Seals and waterproofs concrete, cement, brick, stucco, plaster, mortar, precast concrete, pavers, terrazzo, and most natural stones.
3. It is not a surface coating or membrane, (will not wear off or breakdown).
4. Safe to use inside or outside and permanently seals and waterproofs walls and floors of new or old unpainted and uncoated surfaces.
5. No special equipment required to apply StableCrete.
Recommended Uses of StableCrete Concrete Sealer
Permanently increase the compressive strength of concrete with a waterproof StableCrete sealer. It is eco-friendly and isn't harmful or irritating to the lungs during application. Preserve all concrete, brick, stucco, porous stone, and masonry surfaces. Our sealer penetrates up to 4" deep to prevent staining, curing cracks and dusting, saponification, among other detrimental breakdowns that afflict concrete and masonry surfaces within 5 years of poring for new builds.
Whether you are reinforcing a surface that is new or old, outside or indoors, StableCrete will support it. It is recommended that all dirt, dust, oil, grease- any foreign matter is removed before use. A thorough pressure washing using a 2,500 to 3,000 psi pressure washer is recommended. If the surface is part of an indoor environment it should also be wet vacuumed. Before application, ensure the surface is completely dry. You need the concrete as clean and as dry as possible along with a balanced pH level to prevent sporing underneath the sealer.
Make sure the surface temperature is above 45 degrees Fahrenheit before applying. Mixing is not required, instead, agitating the container helps you know if the product has not been stored longer than a month. For best application, try spraying for the best results for an even coverage using a low-pressure sprayer. Brushes, rollers, and squeegees are also acceptable ways to apply StableCrete.
Allow up to 24-48 hours of dry time until the surface is subjected to traffic.
