Concrete sealers are vital in creating a protective layer over newly finished concrete floors, hardscapes and concrete countertops.

Protecting decorative concrete is a top priority in increasing the longevity of any decorative surface. http://www.ConcreteNetwork.com has created a new comparison chart for consumers and industry professionals that provides detailed information on four popular concrete sealer types.
Concrete sealers are vital in creating a protective layer over newly finished concrete floors, hardscapes and concrete countertops. However, sealers used to protect decorative concrete surfaces are not a “one size fits all” type of product. For this reason, it’s important to use guides like this in choosing the right sealer for the project at hand.
The chart compares four widely used sealer products: penetrating sealers, acrylics, polyurethanes and epoxies. Get the latest information on how each sealer works, their primary applications, the type of finish they produce, and how well they perform.
Consumers can now arm themselves with the knowledge required to choose the appropriate sealer, whether the surface in question be a countertop, an outdoor patio, or a stained interior floor. Get more tips for protecting stained interior floors at http://www.ConcreteStained.com.
In addition to prolonging the life of a decorative finish, sealers also enrich the color intensity of the finish, add a beautiful sheen, and prevent the damaging effects of stains and chemical spills.
