For general protection purposes outdoors a solvent based sealer is more common whereas for interior, the fumes coming from a solvent sealer are not desirable thus a water based sealer is usually preferred indoors. Each sealer has its own unique characteristics, unfortunately there is not a magic concrete sealer protector that covers the needs of every situation. Sealers for concrete are typically used to seal driveways, patios, walks, garage floors, warehouses, basement floors, retail/ commercial flooring areas, or even brick pavers and natural stone.
Concrete sealers are typically easy to apply using a sprayer and or brushes and rollers. Sealers for driveways, patios or walks can be glossy or matte finish depending on desire. Typically Tru-grip is used in conjunction with many sealer applications to reduce the slip factor involved with many concrete sealing projects.
