Acrylic Concrete Sealers

What are acrylic concrete sealers? Acrylic sealers are film forming decorative concrete sealers. Acrylic concrete sealers leave a low sheen or wet look finish. They are available in a water-based version or a solvent-based version.

What is the different between solvent-based acrylic sealers and water-based acrylic sealers?

Solvent based acrylic sealers last longer and perform better than water-based acrylic sealers. They leave a wet look, high gloss finish and can be used with matte additives and slip resistant additives. Solvent-based acrylic sealers will enhance the colors and textures of any substrate you apply them to. Water-based acrylic sealers leave a low sheen or satin finish and do not offer much color enahancement. Water-based sealers have lower VOC and are environmentally friendly products meeting VOC regulations in all 50 states.

Why Ghostshield?

  • If you are looking for a high gloss, wet look finish sealer to enhance the colors and textures of concrete use the CRYLI-TEK 5505. The Cryli-Tek 5505 is a methacrylate acrylic concrete sealer that will not delaminate or yellow due to wear and UV light exposure and will leave a wet-look finish for years to come.
  • If you are looking for a low sheen, satin finish sealer consider adding the Matting Agent 5000 to the Cryli-Tek 5505. The Matting Agent 5000 is mixed into the Cryli-Tek 5505 and will reduce the sheen to a low sheen or satin finish.
  • If you are looking for a slip-resistant additive use the Grip-Tek 250. The Grip-Tek 250 is mixed into the Cryli-Tek 5505 and will add traction to make the concrete sealer less slippery when wet.
  • If you are looking for a water based acrylic concrete sealer use the CRYLI-TEK 5500.
