H&C Concrete Sealer Solid Color Solvent-based coatings provides a non-transparent waterproofing sealer with a long life yet decorative finish for exterior concrete and masonry surfaces. There are many colors available including clear with a gloss finish. H&C Concrete Sealer seeps deep into the masonry surface so it will not flake, peel or fade. It will not be harmed by water, oil, salt, sun, acids or heavy traffic. H&C Concrete Sealer is applied with a brush, solvent resistant roller or with an airless or conventional sprayer. H&C Concrete Sealer can be used on a vast amount of building materials, each may need a different cleaning method from being exposed to the environment. The area is cleaned and dried with no grease, oil, paint or sealers or residues. Next the concrete surface is prepared with H&C Cleaner Degreaser then rinsed and dried. New Concrete must cure for 45 days before any coatings can be applied. On both new and old horizontal concrete H&C Etching Solution is used. For concrete with a very smooth finish we use H&C Etching Solution at full strength. For best waterproofing results, we repair any cracks and deformities before using H&C Concrete Sealer Solid Color Solvent-based coatings. We use a broom one last time on the surface to remove anything that might have fallen onto it. To ensure even color tones, we stir the concrete sealer often both before and during application. H&C Concrete Sealer can not be applied in the rain or if rain is expected within 12 hours of use. Ideal temperature is between 50 to 90 degrees for at least the first 24 hours after H&C Concrete Sealer Solid Color Solvent-based is applied. If a second coat is needed it can be applied after 12 hours. H&C Concrete Sealer Solid Color Solvent-based coating is dry to the touch after just 15 minutes, can be walked on in an hour and heavy traffic in 72 hours. Whether your concrete project is indoors or out, it will last longer and look better if it is stained AND sealed with H&C Concrete Sealer Solid Color Solvent-based coatings. Sealing your concrete not only beautifies and enhances the appearance of the surface, but also protects it from harmful UV rays, de-icing salts, household chemicals, oil and the like. Sealing/staining also prevents the concrete from cracking during the tough winter months.
