Description

ProSeal 896 Concrete Sealer

Pro Seal 896 is a water based cross linking co-polymer concrete sealer. It was designed by Water Based Sealers in Australia for use in our harsh Australian conditions. This amazing concrete sealer is an eco friendly, non-toxic, UV-stable, breathable and penetrating concrete sealer. It is suitable for use on most porous external surfaces.

Pro Seal will not darken the look of the surface but will add some shine, particularly to smooth surfaces. When used on exposed aggregate it will make the stones shine without significantly altering the mortar. This will enhance the contrast between the two and make the aggregate sparkle. Pro Seal 770 can be used as a first coat to provide some subtle colour enhancement if desired.

Acrylic sealer can be either water based or solvent based. Most types of acrylic sealer are film forming. They produce a thick film with quite weak surface adhesion. Solvent based ones are usually harder wearing but are more brittle and are not breathable. Any expansion and contraction can cause crazing. Any water trapped below the sealer can cause the seal to delaminate and peel off. Most water based ones are breathable, but are soft and flexible and as such aren’t very abrasion resistant.

Pro Seal is a better concrete sealer because:

  • It contains a unique, specially designed, acrylic co-polymer. Once cured this ProSeal will not re-emulsify in water or most other solvents and common chemicals. This guarantees increased strength, durability and chemical resistance.
  • It is a true nano sealer that penetrates deep into porous surfaces, using water as a conduit, for the ultimate in adhesion.
  • As the Pro Seal dries, the polymer chains cross-link together to form a matrix seal. This matrix locks together everything in the top layers of the surface. This provides outstanding strength, stain resistance and durability. The top of this matrix forms a tough film on the surface that acts as a wear layer.
  • It is breathable. Moisture can pass through the sealer as vapour. This enables any water that gets into the substrate to escape without damaging the sealer or the material being sealed. Water can get into the substrate through control joints, sealer failures and through rising damp. Sealers that can’t breathe will delaminate from the surface as the water vapour tries to escape. Therefore, a breathable sealer is a must in all outdoor applications.
  • It can be applied in almost all weather conditions. Solvent acrylic sealer requires the substrate to contain less than 5% moisture and for the surface temperature to be between 5 and 30 degrees Celsius. Pro Seal loves water and is not negatively affected by hot or cold temperatures so you can seal all year round. The only time you can’t seal is while it is raining, simply because the rain will wash away the uncured sealer.

Since Pro Seal 896 is applied to a wet surface, it can be used straight after pressure cleaning. Or applied to new concrete as soon as it’s hard enough to walk on. So, Pro Seal 896 provides the earliest possible stain protection. Why wait for surfaces to dry when you can seal straight away?

Applying Pro Seal 896 on the day of a pour increases the hardness and durability of the concrete by improving curing. Plus, it provides stain resistance before any spills can occur. Apply immediately after power trowelling for a super strong and durable floor finish.

 

Pro Seal 896 will not turn white in wet conditions, will not yellow, and will never flake or peel.

This product is safe to use and is much better for the environment that solvent based alternatives. It has low VOC’s and is safe to use around children and pets.

Pro Seal 896 concrete sealer is supplied as a concentrate which is diluted with water prior to use. This reduces shipping costs, carbon foot print and overall product cost.

Uses

Pro-Seal 896 can be used with confidence to seal and provide stain protection for new & old concrete, exposed aggregate, liquid limestone, clay & concrete pavers, and all types of natural stone.

Pro Seal 896:

  • is effective as a curing agent for new concrete
  • is an effective solution for repairing dusting concrete
  • is a penetrating sealer
  • provides superior stain-protection
  • is a great option for pressure clean & seal jobs as it enables you to get the job cleaned & sealed on the same day
  • is an excellent sealing option for driveways, alfrescos, around pools, shopping centres, commercial sites, common walkways etc

Application

Pro Seal 896 comes in a highly concentrated form that requires dilution with water prior to application.  Completely saturate old and dry substrates prior to application to ensure the best possible penetration and performance.

Suggested dilution rates are:

  • Plain Concrete: 1:4 (1 part product 4 parts water)
  • New Exposed Aggregate: 1:3 (1 part product 3 parts water)

Diluted product should be applied at a rate of 3 – 5 m2 per litre depending on surface porosity. For highly porous substrates consider pre-treatment with Pro-Polish 770.

Use a soft bristle broom to sweep out any pools that develop. The sealer can be walked over without concern during the curing process. In many instances a single flood coat is all that is required. If required, a second mist coat can be applied as soon as the first coat is touch dry.

Doesn’t need to be stripped off prior to reapplication.  While Pro-Seal 896 will remain in the substrate and provide protection for 15+ years it is recommended that a re-coat be applied to the surface once every 3 – 5 years to maintain best surface appearance. This is particularly relevant in high traffic areas.

    Excellent results. The product once applied has bought up the finish to my tired drive and bought it back to life. I would thoroughly recommend this water based product for ease of application and no mess clean up.

    I used this product just previous to winter and so far it looks like it is working. Long term would be a better test which I will see in time.

    Jeff Ryan

    Gave it a rating of four as it has only been two weeks since I applied it and it hasn’t had much traffic or grease, oils etc spilled onto it yet. I highly recommend watching the video on the WA sealers website on how to apply. In saying that though it was very easy to apply and quick drying between coats. You essentially just mop it on making sure there is no milky residue/puddles and leave to dry. I purchased the 5 litre Proseal 896 container, my shed floor is approx 38 square meters, I ended up applying two more extra coats than recommended as the finish on the concrete was slightly rough. I still have around 2.5 litres left which will be more than enough to re-apply in the future.

Q & A

Id like to use this sealer on a kitchen bench top. Is it fine to be used on surfaces used to prepare and be around food? Sam asked on May 26, 2024

how long can I keep diluted sealer for if its in a airtight container John asked on May 2, 2024

Use it within a month or less. Undiluted sealer has a shelf life of 5 years in the original unopened container. Therefore, it's best to only dilute what you need as you go, and store the rest undiluted.

Just wondering if I still water the slab if I apply the sealant straight away? Just a bit confused as the slab will be sealed so not sure what affect watering will have. Thomas D asked on February 6, 2024

Water helps to create a conduit for the sealer to migrate through. A prime coat of the 770 will not (in most cases) form a complete seal. By making the slab damp again you provide the best opportunity for the 896 to get deep into the 770 still. Washing prior to application of the final coat also helps to remove any dust and other contaminents that may be sitting on the surface of the primer.

What sealant is best for natural stone. Can I use Pro Seal 896? Megan asked on June 22, 2023

Yes, you can use ProSeal 896 on natural stone. The best sealer for you depends on many things, like what you want to protect against, what look you want, how much grip you need and how dense is the material being sealed. Give us a call to help you figure out what is best for you.
