Water Repellent Coatings For Concrete

  1. 1. Water Repellent Coatings For Concrete
  2. 2. A water repellent coating is designed to stop water from penetrating up and down through the concrete. Water repellent coatings perform differently depending on what their chemical make-up is.
  3. 3. Silane/Siloxanes Silane/Siloxanes, such as the Armor SX5000, is a penetrating water repellent that fills in the pores of the concrete, below the surface. While it works great for poured concrete, it is designed for very porous surfaces such as cinderblock and brick. It will fill in the pores of the concrete completely, stopping water from passing through. As a breathable sealer however, it will allow vapors to pass instead of being trapped below the surface. Because silane/siloxane sealers are penetrating sealers, they do not leave behind a film or coating on the surface and will leave the surface exposed to absorb a slight amount of water.
  4. 4. The Armor SX5000 is a low-VOC, solvent based silane/siloxane based water repellent for concrete, cinderblock (CMU), brick, and unglazed tile. The Armor SX5000 penetrates and reacts with minerals within the substrate to create a hydrophobic barrier against water absorption. Solvent based silane-siloxane sealers have been proven to bond better, last longer, and perform better than water based silane/siloxane sealers!
  5. 5. Silicate Sealers Silicate sealers, like the Armor S2000 and Armor L3000 concrete sealers, are penetrating sealers that waterproof through densification. They form a crystalline barrier within the pores and the size of the barrier formed is dependent on the applicator and the number of coats. Because silane/siloxane sealers are penetrating sealers, they do not leave behind a film or coating on the surface and will leave the surface exposed to absorb a slight about of water.
  6. 6. Armor S1000, S2000 and L3000 – Water based water proofers and densifiers. Armor concrete sealers are proprietary chemical solutions that react with the Calcium Hydroxide in the concrete to produce Calcium Silicate Hydrate (CSH); the same material that is produced in the reaction between Portland cement and water, giving the concrete much of its strength. Our chemistry is inorganic with no VOC’s. There is nothing to wear out, scratch or peel. Once sealed, the concrete will have an increased strength of up to 45% and will be resistant to abrasion, water, and chemicals.
  7. 7. Coatings Coatings, like epoxies and acrylics (Armor AR500) are designed to protect and enhance the surface of concrete. Where silane/siloxanes and silicates work beneath the surface to prevent water intrusion, coatings work above the surface to prevent water absorption.
  8. 8. Armor AR500 – The Armor AR500 Clear Gloss Coat sealer is a high solids, low VOC, solvent based 100% acrylic lacquer designed to protect your decorative concrete and provide it with a high gloss shine. The Armor AR500 Clear Gloss Coat is fast drying, non-yellowing, and provides excellent resistance to rain, sun, freezing temperatures, stains, and other pollutants.
  9. 9. Best Water Repellent Sealer To get the best protection, you want to use both a penetrating sealer and a coating. The penetrating sealer will protect your concrete while the coating will protect the surface. Further, penetrating sealers don’t change the concrete aesthetically while coatings can provide the concrete with a color or shine.
