Coval Technologies introduces Coval Polished Concrete Sealer (PCS), a product that won’t change the natural beauty of polished concrete while protecting the surface from stains, acids, and oils.
Highly polished concrete is in demand in retail and grocery stores, restaurants, event venues and homes, but concrete is porous. Traditional guards have been applied to keep it from staining when inevitable spills happen.
The problem with a traditional guard is that for it to form an effective barrier against liquid stains, it must be made of a thick consistency that takes away the natural look of the concrete. It also creates a costly maintenance loop for floor owners which includes burnishing the floor and then reapplying a guard. For these reasons, polished concrete floor installers often will not use a guard and owners take their chances with potential stains. Coval created a solution for these problems using covalent technology.
- PCS will not distract from natural-looking polished concrete.
- It will give even better protection than traditional guards without constant maintenance.
- PCS penetrates the pores of polished concrete to create a new, long-lasting, chemical and liquid barrier.
- PCS will never become thick and gooey after repetitive adhesions as other concrete guards can do.
- It protects against water and salt damage.
PCS has the same characteristics as Coval Ultimate Top Coat (UTC), and other Coval coatings. It is single component, UV stable, thin film, and based on nanotechnology. Its application is easy with an acetone sprayer and a microfiber mop, directly to polished concrete or over an existing guard.
The new covalently bonded surface created is simply cleaned with a wet mop or auto scrubber, reducing floor maintenance time and chemicals. Once applied, PCS will last two to four years or more and bonds to itself for easy re-application.
Coval coatings can be applied on polished, stained and bare concrete, terrazzo, natural stone, tile and grout, and epoxy and decorative concrete.
Coval Polished Concrete Sealer will be available by the second quarter of 2023.
