STONE AND CONCRETE FLOOR SEALING
Stone or Concrete Sealing: Brilliant Floors Restored, provides stone or concrete floor sealing services. Sealing your floor will help eliminate the alkali and lime from deteriorating the surface. Sealing stone or concrete insulates and water proofs all cementations surfaces. Ideal preparation for walls and floors prior to surface applications of coatings. Sealing your concrete will reduce the hydration of water through the surface.
We only use the highest quality sealing products on all of our projects. Other types of sealing finishes can be applied to your masonry surfaces to provide protection and beauty. These finishes are durable and will provide a high gloss wet look that also gives excellent protection from wear, abrasion and moisture.
Our chosen sealing product....
Seals Against Oil, Water and Salt – It reduces the surface energy of stone below the surface tension of oil and water. These liquids then do not enter the surface and are not pulled into the stone or concrete through capillary action. Our product is also an excellent graffiti repellent.
Better Chemistry – The product's minute silane molecule penetrates the stone deeply in an alcohol-based liquid instead of a petroleum distillate. A chemical reaction bonds the silane molecule to the latticework of the stone forever. Nothing can break this chemical bond, including ultraviolet light. Silanes are different from the molecular fillers of the siloxane family, commonly used in other sealers.
Siloxanes (and Teflons used in other sealers) wear out and must be reapplied.
Long Life Indoors or Out – The deep penetration (typically 1/4”) combined with the permanent chemical bonding allows us to offer a written 15-year performance warranty stating the stone will remain hydrophobic and oleophobic when our products applied by our Certified Applicator and cleaned regularly.
Apply Even to Damp Stone – The product is completely “breathable.” While preventing oils, water and salt from penetrating the stone, it allows water vapor to pass upwards through the stone surface. If the tile or substrata is damp during installation, it will dry out. Because it is “breathable,” our product will prevent efflorescence. Incidentally, and passes through most water-based or distillate-based impregnating sealers.
Use Any Cleaner – Though it changes the surface tension of the stone, our product won’t change the frictional properties or appearance. It will, however, make cleaning much easier. Since our product is bleach-tolerant, surface stains can often be bleached out. In fact, any cleaner can be used without affecting the seal. Please note: acidic cleaners may etch the stone, though they do not affect the seal.
Easy to Apply – Our Product is easy to apply. Spread on the surface so it looks like a mirror finish for at least 3 seconds and allow it to penetrate for 10 minutes to a day. Repeat with a second coat for another 10 minutes or longer. Wipe off any excess with a clean white cloth. Use stone after 6 hours.
