Broom Finished Concrete Sealer Products

Broom finished concrete is the ideal application surface for virtually all Foundation Armor concrete sealers and coatings. The pores are opened and the surface is rough, allowing for easy penetration and optimal bonding. Foundation Armor concrete sealers and coatings can be applied to broom finished concrete with the use of a sprayer or roller.

Prepping broom finished concrete is easy. Pressure wash or spot treat the surface to make sure is clean, and free of anything that would prevent proper penetration or bonding. Let the surface dry for 24 hours and then proceed with the application of the sealer or coating. Still have questions? Chat with us live, or call us direct at 866-306-0246.

 

Invisible, Penetrating Sealers

Penetrating sealers are designed to penetrate through the surface of the concrete and chemically react within the pores. They will not leave behind a visible surface film and they will not change the look or color of the concrete. They are easy to apply, long lasting, and offer a great alternative to surface coatings.

Under the category of penetrating concrete sealers there are concrete surface hardeners and densifiers, and water repellent sealers. Concrete surface hardeners and densifiers should be used if you are seeking an increase in strength and density. Surface hardeners and densifiers will not reduce water absorption on the surface, and won’t help against deterioration caused by water absorption. If the broom finished concrete requires a densifier, consider first applying a densifier followed by the application of a water repellent sealer 5-7 days later.

Water repellent sealers will repel up to 85-95% of surface water absorption, preventing a variety of issues. Some of the benefits include:

  • Reduce the growth of mold, mildew, and algea on the surface
  • Reduce deterioration such as cracking, spalling, and pitting
  • Reduce staining caused from the absorption of surface spills
  • Reduce dusting
  • Reduce freeze-thaw damage
  • Reduce salt damage
  • Reduce the formation of efflorescence

Wet Look and High Gloss Sealers

Foundation Armor wet look and high gloss concrete sealers are designed to enhance and protect the surface of the concrete. The high quality U.S. manufactured resins penetrate deep into the surface of the concrete where they create a long-lasting bond to the concrete from within the pores. The surface of the concrete will darken, bringing out any dull and faded coloring. The durable coating left behind on the surface is resistant to UV rays, changes in weather and temperature, hot tire pickup, surface abrasion, mold and mildew, and more. Whether you are applying it in the cool New England Fall or the hot Arizona Summer, these products are designed to provide lasting protection.
