- In environments which experience a drop in temperature below 32 degrees, freezing water is the biggest threat to concrete. When water freezes, it expands 9%, and this expansion is enough to destroy something as strong as a concrete driveway.
Unlike traditional sealers that leave a film on the top of concrete, penetrating sealers soak deeply into concrete and undergo a chemical reaction. That reaction creates a long lasting and effective barrier, preventing the absorption of water and deicing chemicals which damage concrete from the inside. Water and chemicals become destructive as they freeze and expand, and corrode the rebar inside concrete. Penetrating sealers block the pores and capillaries in concrete, providing maximum long-term protection.

Many garages are subject to fluids leaking from automobiles or spills from a variety of household and lawn chemicals.
To cure newly placed warehouse floors prior to the use of penetrating hardeners and densifiers, we recommend:
If you're about to install a brand-new concrete warehouse floor, then you need to carefully choose a curing compound that will allow you to apply subsequent penetrating treatments or coatings. We recommend EZ Strip Cure DR which is a dissipating resin for indoor use or EZ Strip Cure which cures concrete to ASTM C309 standards and is easily removable with household cleaners like Spic-N-Span and Mr. Clean. Now you're ready to apply a penetrating hardener or densifier to strengthen and dustproof your floor, or a coating such as epoxy or urethane.
If you desire an oil and grease resistant finish, we recommend:
