SealProof sealed concrete will be the market leader in warehousing, retail showrooms, industrial floors and government buildings as it is the most innovative and economical flooring option available today.
Naturally finished concrete floors are the fastest growing phenomena to ever hit the industry.
SealProof is unique product that penetrates deep into concrete surfaces and chemically reacts with the concrete matrix and the surrounding atmosphere to produce an extremely dense and durable sealed floor. The result is concrete that resists wear and tear from abrasion, repels water and other chemicals, and reduces the appearance of tyre marks and stains. SealProof will enhance the appearance of smooth, steel trowel concrete which will actually become more attractive over time. With regular easy maintenance, SealProof will continue to protect and beautify concrete for many years.
How it Works
SealProof reacts with the calcium hydroxide present in concrete, producing a hard crystalline structure called Calcium Silicate Hydrate (CSH). This crystal fills the pores in the concrete surface, making it more dense and abrasion resistant.

SealProof to create a densified surface
SealProof also reacts with atmospheric carbon dioxide, catalyzed by the alkaline materials in concrete, to form a silicone polymer that provides water and chemical repellency to the concrete.
SealProof repels most liquids and chemicals
It is the dual action of SealProof that makes it superior to any other
How SealProof differs from other products
The application of SealProof is much easier and proceeds more quickly when compared to that of sodium or potassium silicates, a compelling reason to consider using a densifier instead.
Typically, SealProof is sprayed lightly on to the concrete surface using low pressure pump system as compared to saturating a floor surface and scrubbing as with other silicates. SealProof leaves no residue to clean up when applied correctly.
(If applied excessively it must be removed before it crystallized, just like other silicates)
Seals and develops a shine in a matter of weeks
Alkalinity and lower viscosity allow for a slower, calmer, more complete reaction, which increases surface density
SealProof does not create white efflorescing stains during or after application as is possible with sodium silicates. It can also control efflorescent in existing facilities.
Does not expand & contract as a result of wet/dry cycles, will not contribute to surface crazing or Alkali Silica Reaction
Increased Abrasion Resistance
Although SealProof and sodium silicate increased abrasion resistance, SealProof provides higher performance
Improved resistance to staining with special silicone resins
Ease of Maintenance
Makes Cleaning easier, for a cleaner and healthier environment
Reduced Water Resistance
Although both SealProof and Sodium Silicates reduce water absorption, SealProof provides dramatically increased performance.
Long Term protection
Penetrating action becomes an integral part of the concrete meaning it does not chip or peal as other surface coatings will.
