How does a silane siloxane sealer work?

Silane siloxane sealers penetrate into the surface of the concrete where they chemically react to form a hydrophobic barrier within the pores. The barrier, which can’t be seen or touched on the surface, works to reduce the absorption of surface water by up to 95%. By reducing the absorption of surface water, damage and deterioration caused by water absorption is also reduced. Concrete sealed with a silane-siloxane sealer is more resistant to water damage, freeze-thaw cycling, and the growth of mold and mildew.

Silane siloxane sealers are the most popular penetrating sealer for concrete, brick, stone, and masonry simply because they work well, and last for years. They also work entirely below the surface which means there isn’t a surface coating to maintain. There are so many benefits to using a silane-siloxane sealer, including:

  • Silane-Siloxane sealers reduce damage and deterioration caused by water absrorption
  • Silane-Siloxane sealers reduce damage caused by water absorption from the use of de-icing and road salts
  • Silane-Siloxane sealers reduce the growth of surface mold, mildew, and algae
  • Silane-Siloxane sealers reduce damage caused by freeze-thaw cycles
  • Silane-Siloxane sealers are easy to apply, easy to maintain, and last for years
