While concrete may not be your first thought when you are designing your shower and bath, it has increasingly become a common material used. It provides a sleek, modern look all while being extremely easy to clean. The concrete will not have grout and joints where mold can build up, requiring less cleaning and maintenance than a traditional shower.
The biggest problem with using concrete in your shower is the materials porosity. Concrete is very porous by nature, which allows the absorption and passage of water through untreated concrete. Therefore, it is important to properly seal your concrete showers, baths, and sinks with a high quality concrete sealer.
Penetrating concrete sealers leave natural finishes so the concrete will not be slippery when wet.
Apply the Siloxa-Tek 8510 penetrating concrete sealer. The Siloxa-Tek 8510 will penetrate deep within the concrete through the tiny surface pores, while filling in tiny hairline cracks and air pockets to prevent the seepage of water into the material while simultaneously reducing the growth and frequency of mold and mildew.
