Solvent & Accessories

Most solvent based sealer needs to be diluted with solvent or thinners on the first coat to help the sealer to penetrate. It’s similar to painting a raw plasterboard wall, you need to prime it before applying a top coat.

Solvent is also recommended when resealing over existing acrylic coatings as it helps bite into the existing sealer to create a good bond.

As sealed concrete can be slippery, a non slip additive can be added to the final coat to increase the slip resistance of the surface.

And, if it all goes wrong, or your sealer is delaminating, the best way to remove it is with a sealer stripper. Whilst it’s not a nice process, sometimes it’s just best to get back to raw concrete to ensure a good bond.
