Penetrating surface sealers are a type of concrete sealer that is designed to penetrate the concrete surface and form a barrier that protects the concrete from water, stains, and other elements. They are typically made from a combination of silanes and siloxanes, which are chemicals that react with the concrete to form a durable, long-lasting bond.
Penetrating surface sealers are available in both clear and colored formulations. Clear sealers will not alter the appearance of the concrete, while colored sealers can be used to change the color of the concrete or to provide a protective barrier over a stained or damaged surface.
