Concrete is very absorbent and stains easily, so it is highly recommended to seal any type of concrete floor. Ecosteam offers a full range of services to keep your concrete surface protected and attractive for years to come. In the Melbourne area we have used high quality concrete sealing systems that last longer than most typical sealers. We have tried them all and we know what works best. From the smallest concrete porch to large concrete flooring projects we use only products that have been proven over time.
There are two main types of concrete sealers: film-forming sealers and penetrating sealers.
Topical Sealers (Film-forming) form a physical protective layer on top of the surface, which not only stops the penetration of moisture but also strengthens it.
Choose if you want a wet look or high gloss finish that enhances the colour of your concrete, although not advised for wet areas where it becomes slippery.
Penetrating Sealers (Impregnating) absorb into the concrete to prevent moisture from entering and at the same time allow vapour to escape from inside the concrete surface. Without changing the appearance of the concrete surface, they provide invisible protection while retaining the natural look of concrete surfaces. They have a long lifespan and are a great choice for exterior applications.
Coloured Penetrating Sealer allows you to change the colour of the concrete. A very popular choice for driveways and garages.
Epoxy Sealer: One type of a topical sealer is an epoxy coating. They are an excellent choice for protecting and beautifying concrete floors. Epoxy coating is not only attractive, they can last up to 25 years and come in a wide range of colors.
They have become a popular choice for garages. Commercial uses for epoxy coating now include the hotel and hospitality industry, hospitals, businesses, retail stores, showrooms, salons, and warehouses.
