How to Prevent Concrete From Staining

Use a penetrating concrete stain repellent sealer or a durable concrete coating to prevent concrete from staining.

One of the worst aesthetic problems that can afflict concrete is staining. While structurally not a problem, stains can permanently mar the surface of your concrete, offering a nasty visual blemish that will plague your home forever.

Whether oil stains on your garage floor, wine stains on your concrete countertops, or stains from fallen leaves marring your outdoor concrete, you want to protect your concrete from stains before they happen.

Penetrating concrete stain repellent: Natural finish products with fluro polymers to resist staining from oils and grease. It will also lock out surface spills and materials from entering into the concrete, ensuring the spills remain pooled on the surface for easy clean-up.

Siloxa-Tek 8505 and Siloxa-Tek 8510 are two penetrating concrete stain repellent sealers. Clean up spills in a timely manner for optimum performance and longevity.

Durable concrete coating: Gloss finish products that will sit on the surface of the concrete to completely stop the penetration of fluids. Extremely resilient and resistant to chemicals, acids, gasoline, and abrasions.

Use the Epoxy 325 primer and Urethane 645 top coat for commercial applications like breweries, wine cellars, kennels, warehouses and industrial facilities to completely stop concrete from staining.
