Concrete countertops should be sealed to prevent water based stains or oil based stains. You can use Hydrex, Ager, AgerTiger or Protex to seal concrete. These are all high quality, low cost sealers for concrete countertops.
Hydrex is very inexpensive to use and this granite sealer is a mineral based product that dries completely invisible – like SkotchGard for concrete. Protex is a resin based stone sealer that also dries invisibly. It is stronger than Hydrex – think of it as Hydrex on Steroids! Ager and AgerTiger are both color enhancing sealers that will give your concrete countertops the wet look – that is, the way they look when they are damp.
Proseal solvent based sealer for stone is made by Tenax in Italy and in tests this product represents the best value for sealing natural stone. It tested very good for granite (including the exotic granites), and it works on limestone, sandstone, terrazzo, concrete agglomerate, and even engineered stone. Tenax states that you can get 200 – 300 square feet of coverage per liter of Proseal!
Sealing concrete countertops with an impregnating sealer for concrete will prevent them from getting stained. This is good concrete countertop care and in turn will make your sealed concrete countertop look cleaner and more pristine. We carry many sealers for concrete countertops. Some of them dry completely invisible while others will leave the stone with the wet look, as if it were damp permanently. None of our sealers are water based, so not only do you not have to deal with water tension, you also get more surfactants which go deeper into the concrete to give you the end result you are looking for. A concrete countertop that is truly stain–proofed.
We carry concrete countertop sealer, granite sealer, marble sealer, slate sealer, sandstone sealer, flagstone sealer and even limestone tile sealer. All of these impregnating stone sealers are made in Italy by Tenax.
