Advice For Applying Ceramic Sealants To Concrete Flooring

Industrial & Manufacturing Blog

If you have concrete floors you want to protect or just enhance visually, ceramic concrete sealants can be used. These sealants aren't that difficult to apply, but you still want to use the following advice so that you get the best results that last.

Find Sealants with the Right Properties

Before you begin applying ceramic sealants to your concrete floors, you want to find a product that has the right properties. Then you'll enhance your concrete floors as you see fit, making these sealants all the more valuable to use.

You can find ceramic sealants that add more texture to concrete floors, enhance their gloss, make them resistant to oils, and protect against UV rays. Try finding a ceramic sealant with the right mix of special properties that are geared towards how you use concrete floors on an everyday basis.

Patch Cracks First

Another preparation you want to complete before actually administering ceramic sealants is patching up all the cracks on your concrete floors. That's going to create a better bonding surface for the sealant you end up using, where you don't have to make a bunch of adjustments later.

You can use a standard crack filler to cover up these imperfections. After you've treated them, make sure you give the filler product enough time to fully dry before you go in and apply the ceramic sealants. Spending time to fix these sorts of imperfections ultimately helps your sealants work a lot better long-term. 

Review Manufacturer Curing Times

Once you apply a coat of ceramic sealant to your property's concrete floors, you have to give it time to dry before applying another coat. You'll have no trouble with this as long as you find out what the manufacturer recommends for the drying time.

Some sealants have shorter drying times than others. It just depends on the makeup of the ceramic sealant you chose. As long as you observe these recommended drying time periods, every coat of ceramic sealant you apply is going to bond a lot better to your concrete floor's surface.

You can enhance concrete floors around your property by adding ceramic sealants to them. Whether you're looking to make them more durable and look different visually, make sure you follow the right steps during application so that you make the most out of these sealants. Then you'll just need to do your best at maintaining them over the years.
