Concrete is the most used construction material on earth. Its popularity is due to its strength and durability. Concrete, however, has one apparent weakness, namely it’s porosity. In short this leads to the absorption of water in miniscule quantities. Over time, this may lead to lasting and damaging results pertaining to the performance of the concrete.Cretesol offers high performance concrete protectors, imported from a French manufacturer, named Guard Industry. This company is regarded by many as the company which provides the best concrete protectors in the world. Guard Industry’s products’ effectiveness has been proven across the globe – preserving buildings and heritage sites from harsh ecological factors and damages.
Our concrete protectors penetrate the pores of concrete to make it impermeable and therefore limit the absorption of water, oil, fat, grease, stains, soil, and even graffiti; through the concretes’ capillaries. It remains permeable to air and water vapour.As a very affordable concrete protector, it offers the most essential protection for concrete. It protects against moisture penetrating the concrete. Moisture could cause several problems, including acid attack, salt attack, discolouration and efflorescence.
This cost-effective paving protector strengthens concrete and protects the colour, as it works under the surface of the concrete, to make the concrete stronger. This is the main difference between a sealer and a protector. Concrete protectors are absorbed into the concrete it protects and becomes a part of the concrete, so to speak; whereas sealants lay on top of the paving installation itself to seal the entire installation, while usually changing the original colour of the paving installed.
We recommend protecting your patio, pool area, driveway, entertainment area, walkway, and other application; to prolong the life of your concrete or paving application.
