For the last 18 years, I’ve been answering the multitude of questions for do-it-your-selfers and…
Oil and Stain Resistant Penetrating Sealer
Choosing A Penetrating Stain And Oil Resistant Concrete Sealer
Any Exposed Porous Surface Is Open To Staining And Discoloration.
Porous surfaces such as concrete, brick or natural stone are susceptible to staining and discoloration. Anyone telling you differently is misleading you. This can come from water, oil, organic and food based substances.
People in charge of keeping these surfaces clean and pristine often turn to clear concrete sealers to provide protection and reduce maintenance costs. However when it comes to oil and stain resistance, not all sealers are created equal.

Silane And Siloxane Sealers Only Prevent Water… Not Oils And Grease Contaminants.
Many of the penetrating type of sealers are silane and/or siloxane sealers (silicone based). These penetrating sealers are effective in sealing out water, but do not protect against oil based stains from petroleum products or from fat grease.
Protect Factory Floors Against Petroleum Products Or Fat Grease
Film-Forming Sealers Can Become Slippery And Yellow Over Time.
Other types of sealers are film-forming sealers, and a provide glossy barrier on the top surface that can become slippery and yellow with age.
Longer Lasting Oil And Water Stain Resistance.
Sealing products utilizing fluoropolymer resins offer superior stain resistance properties compared to other treatments. They are quickly becoming the next generation of surface protectors.
With a fluoropolymer-based penetrating sealer you get an invisible, non slippery, long-lasting oil and water stain resistance.
These products can be used on any interior or exterior concrete or masonry surfaces which are exposed to water, oil or other organic substances, usually susceptible to staining or discoloration.

Using An Oil And Stain Resistant Penetrating Sealer
Most people have come into contact with a product that was made from a fluoropolymer.
Teflon™ fluoropolymers which were developed in 1938 by DuPont.
Teflon coatings are well known for their non-stick, friction-reducing properties.
In the same way penetrating sealers utilizing fluoropolymer resins are characterized by a high resistance to oils.
They also repel:
- Airborne dirt
- Acid rain
- Mineral and salt corrosion.

Fluoropolymer Products Create A Barrier That Locks-Out Oils, Water And Soil.
Fluoropolymer based sealers penetrate into porous materials (like concrete, natural stone and pavers, etc.), creating a long-lasting barrier that “locks-out” oils, water and soil.
This barrier forces liquids to bead up on the surface, allowing them to be picked up more easily, and preventing them from causing a stain.

Penetrating Sealers Also Prevent Dusting, Spalling And Inhibit Efflorescence
The penetrating sealer will not only provide improved chemical and oil resistance, but it will also prevent dusting, spalling and inhibit efflorescence.
Fluoropolymer sealers such as CoverSeal PEN 55 and CoverSeal PREMIUM are ideal solutions for protecting and maintaining:
- Shopping Malls
- Service Stations
- Parking Lots
- BBQ Dining Areas
Protect Shopping Mall Floors Against Oils And Soil
