Eco Friendly Concrete Sealer ?

Posted 20 Jun '14 01:31 AM

We got the concrete floor for our new house poured. There has been some pigments added to make it darker. We would like to use an 'healthy' sealer for the floor, but the information out there is rather 'light'. Some advice included: - Polyurethane sealer. Supposed to be complete seal, but of course can be scratched by sand in shoe sole / chair legs etc. There are some partly, but not fully water based products. - 'concrete sealer' breathable, staining may occur?? - Bees wax - Tung oil (the label says not UV resistant, but have a passive solar design, so the floor will receive sun light) so good or not? - linseed oil - or just nothing - leave it like this

Who can tell us more about it, maybe from recent experience? Some products to recommend? Cheers Ben

Hi Ben, What did you end up going with and did you grind first or just seal? Thanks!

They have eco-friendly sealers - got them to apply for me around my pool. They also have an eco friendly concrete etch which they used around my pool. i dont see it on their website though so you may have to contact them?

Hi Ben,
did you manage to find an eco-friendly concrete sealer?
We recently imported from France a water based impregnating sealer. It is 100% biodegradable and effective for more than 10 years. Let me know if it's something that could interest you.

Guard Industry NZ, I found recently this article ( url: ), where author exaplined all the options of each model and gave a lot of models to compare one with another. Black Diamond Stoneworks I found there as well, it's quite the product for the purpose of cleaning and enhancing of color.
