Sealers & Protective Coatings

Although there are many repair and restoration applications that simply do not require a protective sealer for structural performance, we recommend sealing most applications just to keep the finishes easy to clean and looking new longer.

Elite Crete Systems hallmark sealer used by contractors on nearly 95% of their outdoor applications. It may look and feel similar to conventional off-the-shelf solvent acrylic based sealers in terms of where you would use it and how it is applied but that is where the similarities stop.

CSS EMULSION™ is packaged and sold as a 53% solid resin that must be reduced prior to use because there is a moderate MMA (methlymethacrylate) content to greatly increase cured hardness, abrasion strength, clean ability and overall surface protection. It is easily reduced with normal oxygenated or aromatic solvents such as xylene, lacquer thinner, acetone, aromatic 150 or oxsol 100 most of which can be acquired locally from a general paint store (check with local city, county and state air quality requirements and restrictions before use). This alone greatly reduces shipping and product costs because you are not paying to ship solvent.

We provide a detailed suggested reduction chart that can be located on the Technical Data page of this website since there are many different solid percentages depending on what finish you are applying.

Ideal for all types of decorative concrete, overlays, stamped concrete, acid stained concrete, garage floors, warehouse floors, broom finished concrete, vertical applications and more.

Advantages:

  • Cost. Sold only as a concentrate, therefore must be reduce prior to use. 5 gallons of CSS EMULSION™ produces 10 to 15 gallons of sealer at a fraction of the price of other sealers. Typical installed square footage cost is between $0.09 and $0.15 per square foot.
  • Durability. Although CSS EMULSION™ looks and applies similar to conventional off the shelf acrylic sealers, it is laced with MMA (methyl methacrylate) to greatly increase cured hardness, abrasion resistance, water resistance, UV resistance and stain resistance. There is not a more durable single component sealer available anywhere without going to polyurethane or epoxy technology.
  • Versatility. Because CSS EMULSION™ must be reduced prior to use, contactors can create different solids content levels depending on the specific need or application. We provide various mix design ratios in the product information sheet.
  • VOC Compliant Availability. CSS-V EMULSION™ a VOC compliant version of CSS EMULSION™ with a VOC level of 137 g/l at 25% solids performance and usability. Please check with local city, county and state air quality requirements and restrictions in determining which version of CSS EMULSION™ is right for you.

Disadvantages:

  • Highly Flammable. Although CSS EMULSION™ is solvent born and flammable once diluted with a solvent it becomes even more flammable. Use only with adequate ventilation. Remove all flames, spark, etc. from work area.

TECHNICAL DATA

WCS EMULSION™ is an exceptional sealer by waterborne standards and a suitable alternative to CSS EMULSION™ for most residential interior applications.

Advantages:

  • Safe & Easy to Use. WCS EMULSION™ does have produce the solvent off gassing and therefore ventilation is not required. Simply roll or spray multiple coats and allow to dry.
  • VOC Compliant.

Disadvantages:

  • Not suitable for high traffic commercial or industrial applications. Instead see SPARTIC-ALL™ RM.

TECHNICAL DATA

Available as a clear protective coating SPARTIC-ALL™ Polyaspartic is the next generation of two component protective coatings offering benefits that simply are not possible with conventional epoxy systems.

SPARTIC-ALL™ RM is a high solids and no filler coating. This product is used when extraordinary amounts of traffic are to be excepted and when the time frame to complete the application is small.

Clear SPARTIC-ALL™ RM is used to protect decorative concrete finishes, interior custom flooring applications, paint flake or colored quartz systems and industrial floors coated with SPARTIC-ALL™ Pigmented. Pigmented SPARTIC-ALL™ is used in more industrialized settings such as garage floors, warehouses, service bays and manufacturing facilities.

Advantages:

  • Strength. No clear or pigmented epoxy coatings are stronger.
  • Fast Application & Fast Cure. Although the application is similar to that of conventional epoxies, SPARTIC-ALL™ RM actually cures hard enough in just a few hours that it can take foot traffic the same day and be open to full traffic the next day.
  • VOC Compliant.

Disadvantages:

  • Non-Breathable. Because of the high two component nature it will not allow vapor transmission for most exterior applications.

TECHNICAL DATA

Available in clear and 10 stock colors, the E100 Series is a 100% true solids, no filler epoxy. With a cured hardness of well over 10,000 psi, this product is used when extraordinary amounts of traffic are to be excepted. The clear is used to protect exterior decorative concrete finishes, interior custom flooring applications and even accentuate the color and beauty of the application. The colored version is used in more industrialized settings such as garage floors, warehouses, service bays and manufacturing facilities.

Advantages:

  • Overall Strength. With a cured compressive strength in excess of 10,000 psi, no clear or pigmented epoxy coatings are stronger.
  • Ease of Use. Although this is still a two component, chemical cured epoxy, the application is as simple as place and walk because of the superb self leveling characteristics.
  • VOC Compliant.

Disadvantages:

  • Non-Breathable. Because of the high two component nature it will not allow vapor transmission for most exterior applications.

TECHNICAL DATA

Very similar to the E100-PT™ Series but with added protection from UV light. Available in clear or colored.
