The 8500 is used to protect paver patios, pool decks, driveways and walkways from water, salts and weathering. This can include deicing salts and salt water that may splash from a salt water pool. If concrete is exposed to salt and left unsealed it can result in spalling, pitting and cracking. The Siloxa-Tek 8500 is able to resist this salt damage and keep concrete strong and waterproof. Not only that but mold, mildew and efflorescence growths are reduced and are easily cleaned off.
Available in a ready to use version, or an ultra concentrated version. The ultra concentrated version is mixed with 4 gallons of distilled water prior to application. Two coats are easily applied wet-on-wet (the second coat is applied immediately after the first coat while the first coat is still wet) with a sprayer, roller or brush. The concrete retains its natural appearance after sealing and will not yellow or fade with UV light exposure.
