Whether you pull a vehicle into your garage every night or use it to store a lawnmower and other yard tools, oil and other fluid leaks eventually happen. To keep these drips and drops from becoming a lifelong stain on the garage floor, you need to invest in a sealer to establish a protective barrier between the elements and your concrete.
MasonryDefender Garage Floor Sealer is a clear, water-based acrylic sealer perfect for indoor and outdoor garages. Our easy application process can typically be completed with products already found in the home.
MasonryDefender Garage Floor Sealer is a non-yellowing, acrylic polymer blend sealer formulated for sealing properly cured concrete surfaces. It leaves an attractive, durable, gloss finish that protects concrete from moisture, oil stains and abrasion/wear.
MasonryDefender Garage Floor Sealer is suitable for use on concrete surfaces including garage floors, concrete patios, driveways and sidewalks but it is best for garage floors.
After allowing new concrete to cure for 28 days, use muriatic acid (available at most hardware or home improvement stores) according to directions to etch and prepare the surface.
Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry completely before using MasonryDefender® Garage Floor Sealer. It is extremely important to rinse the surface thoroughly with water after using muriatic acid to bring the substrate to a neutral ph level (7).
Testing with ph paper should be done prior to using Garage Floor Sealer to ensure that a neutral ph has been achieved.
After rinsing, surface should be allowed to dry a minimum of three to five days prior to sealing. Applying sealer over an acidic substrate will most likely result in failure.
Clean surface with MasonryDefender All Purpose Masonry & Concrete Cleaner per label instructions.
If oil or grease stains are present, use a quality degreasing cleaner available at most hardware or home improvement stores.
If desired, a pressure washer can be used to rinse cleaner off and may result in a cleaner surface than rinsing with a garden hose alone.
Allow surface to dry, waiting a minimum of 6 hours before proceeding to next step.
Mix thoroughly before use.
Apply two uniform coats of material to new, previously untreated concrete surfaces with a pump-up garden sprayer with a fan-type nozzle. You can also use an airless sprayer, pad applicator, or short nap roller.
Allow the first coat of material to dry sufficiently to walk on, but not more than 4 hours, prior to application of the second coat. Avoid puddling or ponding of product: brush or roll material until it thoroughly penetrates the surface.
Block all drains and use absorptive coverings to contain run-off or excess material. Use soap and water to remove overspray as soon as possible.
100 – 150 square feet per gallon on concrete. Coverage rates will vary based on the porosity of the substrate.
Over-application of material may cause darkening of surface.
1-2 hours, depending on temperature and humidity. Allow 4-6 hours cure time before exposing to foot traffic. Allow 6 days cure time before exposure to heavy traffic, such as forklifts, automobiles, etc.
Remove any overspray immediately with soap and water. Dry film can be removed using a razor scraper. Thoroughly rinse equipment with clean water.
You likely already have the tools needed to apply garage floor sealer in the garage. The product is best applied with a short-nap paint roller after being poured into a paint tray.
Always let your concrete cure before applying sealant. New concrete needs to cure for a minimum of four weeks before application. Always apply in a test area before applying product to your entire surface to ensure satisfactory results.
Only use the sealer after cleaning the floor using a cleaning product. We recommend MasonryDefender All Purpose Masonry & Concrete Cleaner for best results. A cleaner will help remove any existing fluid residue, dust and dirt that may keep our product from properly adhering to your concrete floor. If grease and oil are present use a high quality degreaser to remove residue before cleaning.
Our garage floor sealer is perfect for concrete garage floors, or concrete basement floors.
This is a low-odor, water-based product. When using indoors, keep areas well ventilated while applying and during the curing process. Keep out of reach of children.
One gallon of our garage sealer can cover 100 to 150 square feet. Results may vary based on how porous the surface being sealed is.
MasonryDefender Garage Floor Sealer dries in approximately two hours and can handle foot traffic after an approximately six-hour cure time. Do not drive a vehicle on the product for at least six days. Curing times can vary slightly based on humidity levels.
This product may cause surfaces to become slippery depending on the porosity of the surface it is being applied to. We recommend pairing it with MasonryDefender Clear Non-Slip Additive for the best protection against slips on your concrete.
