Silane-Siloxane sealers penetrate deep into the surface of the concrete and masonry where they chemically react to form a hydrophobic barrier within the pores that causes water and other liquids to bead off the surface. By reducing the absorption of water and other liquids on the surface by up to 95%, the surface becomes more resistant to cracking, spalling, pitting, freeze-thaw damage, mold and mildew growth, and efflorescence formation. Silane-Siloxane sealers will not change the look or color of the concrete or masonry, and it will not leave behind a visible surface film. when properly applied, Silane-Siloxane sealers can last for up to 7-10 years before the need to reseal.
Foundation Armor Silane-Siloxane sealers are high solids Silane-Siloxane hybrid sealers that contain up to 10 times more active materials than similiar products on the market. They are made from non-recycled U.S. manufactured resins, and are designed to provide a superior level of life and performance. Foundation Armor Silane-Siloxane sealers are used to seal everything from garage floors and concrete roadways, to warehouse floors, concrete roads, and bridge decks.
Silane-Siloxane sealers can easily be applied with a pump sprayer or roller to unsealed concrete, brick, pavers, stone, stucco, and masonry. Two coats are suggested, especially if the concrete has never been sealed before. Silane Siloxane sealers can be applied to interior or exterior concrete.
Frequently asked questions about Silane-Siloxane concrete sealers:
Which is better, a water based Silane Siloxane concrete sealer or a solvent based Silane-Siloxane concrete sealer? One type of Silane-Siloxane sealer isn't necessarily better than the other. Typically with this type of sealer it comes down to preference. Water based Silane-Siloxane sealers have a larger molecule than solvent based Silane Siloxane sealers which is why many contractors choose to use water based on porous masonry such as brick, and solvent based on dense concrete like a trowel finished garage floor. Both types of Silane-Siloxane concrete sealers will perform great on all types of concrete and masonry.
How are Silane-Siloxane concrete sealers different from a Silane sealer alone or a Siloxane sealer alone? With Silane-Siloxane hybrid sealers you get the benefits of each type of sealer without the weaknesses. Silane sealers have a smaller molecule and work best below the surface while Siloxane sealers have a larger molecule and work best on the surface. Silane-Siloxane hybrid sealers contain both small Silane molecules and large Siloxane molecules so you get equal protection above and below the surface.
How do the Armor SX5000 and Armor SX5000 WB differ from other Silane-Siloxane sealers? There are several differences between our Silane-Siloxane concrete sealers and other Silane-Siloxane concrete sealers on the market, but the top three differences are the active solids, resin type, and ratio of Silane to Siloxane. Foundation Armor Silane-Siloxane sealers are made from non-recycled U.S. manufactured resins, and they contain up to 10 times more active materials than similar products. They also contain an ideal ratio of Silane to Siloxane that has been tested and approved by the Department of Transportation in several states. The quality is instantly noticed in the performance and life of our products.
