Concrete Sealers Explained

If you stop and think about it, you have more direct contact with the floor of your shop than any other part.

So it only makes sense to make sure your shop floor is safe, clean and comfortable. 

Start with the floor finish.

If your shop has an unfinished concrete floor, there are several finishes you can apply to make it more attractive and easier to clean.  

Concrete sealeris a clear product that helps the concrete resist staining and creates a “slick” surface that’s easier to sweep but isn’t slippery.

Concrete Stain is essentially sealer with a coloring agent for visual appeal.

Concrete Paint seals and beautifies the floor, but because the product has more body it will fill small voids and cracks eliminating areas where dirt, mildew and even insects can collect.

Epoxy Paint is a two-part finish that prevents moisture seepage up through the floor, resists stains and spills and has a very attractive appearance.

Regardless of the floor type or surface treatment, sweep and clean it regularly, and provide a cushion for your feet at work areas in the form of rubber floor mat or even old carpet scraps.
