Unleashing the Power of Water-Based Acrylic Sealers: Transforming Concrete with Pressure Cleaning and Sealing

Have you got concrete areas that get dirty often like in the image above? You may have concrete stains that you can’t get out with pressure cleaning or you are looking at sealing your concrete to keep it clean and inhibit dirty marks and mold growth.

If you are interested in cleaning and sealing concrete, welcome to our blog, where we dive into pressure cleaning and sealing concrete surfaces.

Today, we’re shining a spotlight on our game-changing products for the concrete cleaning and sealing industry – wet-on-wet application water-based acrylic sealers. Simply speaking, while most other sealers can only be applied when the concrete is dry, our sealers have been designed to work better when applied on wet surfaces. If you’re a trade professional or a homeowner looking to revitalize your concrete spaces, you’re in for a treat!

Water-based sealers have undergone a revolution, and they have many advantages over traditional, solvent-based acrylic concrete sealers. While they offer some advantages and effective protection they often come with drawbacks like strong odors, wait times, and environmental concerns. Enter Barefoot Concrete’s range of water-based acrylic sealers, a revolutionary alternative that not only addresses these issues but also brings many benefits to the table.

  1. Environmentally Friendly: Water-based acrylic sealers are a greener choice compared to their solvent-based counterparts. They contain lower levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), reducing their impact on the environment. This makes them a responsible choice for both trade professionals and environmentally conscious homeowners.
  2. Low Odor, High Performance: Say goodbye to the strong and lingering odors associated with solvent-based sealers. Water-based acrylic sealers offer a more pleasant application experience without compromising on performance. Enjoy the ease of application and quick drying times, allowing you to return to your revitalized space sooner.
  3. Versatility in Application: One of the standout features of water-based acrylic sealers is their ability to be applied on wet surfaces. Traditional sealers require a completely dry substrate, but with water-based options, you can seal your concrete immediately after pressure cleaning. This not only saves time but also enhances the efficiency of the entire process. For the professional, the jobs can be done much more efficiently!
  4. Enhanced UV Resistance: Sunlight can take a toll on exposed concrete surfaces, causing fading and deterioration. Water-based acrylic sealers come equipped with excellent UV resistance, providing a protective barrier against the sun’s harmful rays. This means your sealed concrete will maintain its colour and integrity for an extended period, even in the face of relentless sunlight.
  5. Breathability and Durability: Unlike some sealers that trap moisture within the concrete, water-based acrylic sealers allow the material to breathe, reducing the risk of trapped moisture-related issues such as efflorescence and whitening of the surface. Additionally, these sealers create a durable surface that stands up to foot traffic, vehicle movement, and the elements, ensuring a longer lifespan for your concrete surfaces.

In the world of pressure cleaning and sealing, water-based acrylic sealers are changing the game. From their eco-friendly composition and low odour to the ability to be applied on wet surfaces, these sealers offer a winning combination of convenience and performance. Additionally, our sealers are all concentrated, so you get up to 4-5x more product and greater coverage from one 20Kg pail.

We offer three water-based sealers:

  1. W881 Sealer – for porous concrete, sandstone, limestone etc, and to colour-enhance oxide concrete. Also can be used as a primer sealer.
