Concrete Protector Penetrating Hydrophobic Concrete Sealer protects concrete surfaces from severe conditions like rainwater, freeze-thaw cycles, road salts, de-icers, and other common hazards. Our Penetrating Concrete Sealer penetrates deep into your concrete’s pores and seals the surface to
protect your concrete from all types of concrete damage without changing the appearance or texture of the concrete.
Tips & Tricks
- A lower pressure setting on your washer is best when prepping for this application. You want the surface to be clean but you do not want to create a striping pattern.
- The ideal time to apply the sealer is when the concrete is transitioning from a dark color (from water saturation) to a lighter color (drying).
- In reality, mixing this sealer is easy! Pour 2 concentrated bottles of TCP sealer into a 5 gallon bucket, fill bucket up the rest of the way with cool, clean water, mix thoroughly with drill & paddle or broom handle. A super easy way to get to your “9 parts water -1 part concentrate” mix! Also,
when mixing & adding water to your bucket, don’t blast the sealer with the water from a hose/water nozzle. Things will get bubbly and frothy if you do. You’re not making a frothy cappuccinos here . . . so let’s stick to making up sealer.
- Your coverage rate will not be as good on windy & warmer days (on excessively windy days, go fly a kite).
- A battery operated sprayer strapped to a hand cart makes life easier.
- Your sealer will spray on “milky white” (looks like skim milk ) and will dry clear in a few minutes.
- Use a stiff bristled broom to move the sealer evenly across the surface. Brooming the sealer is not 100% always necessary . . . only on inclines (see tip below). If your client is watching the process, at least make it look like you’re working to earn that $$.
- Do not let sealer “run” down in strips on inclines/slopes/verticals/edges (use broom to brush out the “runs”). Heavy runs of sealer may cause slight discoloration.
- Don’t walk or allow others to walk in the sealer when it is wet on the surface (footprints may be left behind) . . . unless “footprints” are a decorative look you’re going for.
- It’s best to wait 24 hrs. before allowing vehicle traffic (secure caution tape across end of driveway).
- While disconnecting the Hover Scrubber and pressure washing wand from the pressure washer, pull the trigger, relieving pressure for an easy disconnect. Try to pop that hose off without 1st relieving pressure and you’ll understand why.
