Water Based Sealants

Concrete sealers come in both water-based varieties (typically lower VOC) and solvent-based types (normally high VOC). In the case of a water-based sealer, the polymer particles are dispersed in water. When the sealer is applied to concrete, the water evaporates and the polymer particles move closer together. Decorative concrete sealers are available as solvent or water based products and can last anywhere from 6 months to 3 years. Apply the sealer with a paint roller in 2 very thin and even coats.
