I briefly worked in the concrete business and we sold a lot of products from the Euclid company. www.euclidchemical.com. All the masonry people swore by Euclid products. They can be pricey, but seemed to be effective. I never actually used any of their products, just sold a lot of their stuff..........

Hello,

I found it and purchased Baracade WB244 by Euclid. Will see how it performs. It penetrates and blocks water & salt.. Euclid support recommended this product.

Thanks Gymschu

I guess it all depends on how much you want to spend. Never heard of Euclid before. Their product video is a little odd.

Let us know some feedback on it.

Default hi

Its like water with a bit milk in it. I used garden sprayer but could be sprayed with airless sprayer as well.

If flooded well that white think is visible, however, once it dry it disappear.

Outside temperature and concrete must be over 40F and rising. It was about 65 outside and sunny side of driveway got dry in about 2 hours, side behind shadow took 4-6 hours to dry.
Spec sheet calls there should be no rain at least 12 hours after application.

I did 2 coats, second coat must be applied while its wet.

So far it works fine and I like it, water does not stay, it runs off driveway like crazy. Time will tell how long it lasts.

Does not smell bad at all, its not hazardous.. $150 with tax for 5 gallons.

Prosoco siloxane is a water repellent that has been good to us. We have only used it on vertical surfaces but it is good for horizontal also.

If it's like the Siloxane I'm aware of, it isn't really meant to be a layered top coat, but penetrate into the concrete and seal it.

I think these sealers are the worse kind for retail/sidewalk/driveway type of work. If you plan on absolutely never trying to recoat, then they work great.

I never* recommend Siloxane to a customer because you'd have to literally grind off layers of concrete to get past the siloxane layer so you could even begin to do anything with it.

Topical sealers are the way to go when finishing colored concrete/acid stains, etc.

For tilt-up/cmu work it might be spec'd for commercial..but that's about the end of where they get used.
