Once of the most corrosive materials concrete can come into contact with is deicing salts. Deicing salts are commonly used on roadways and by homeowners on their driveways. In order to protect concrete from these deicing salts and the spalling, cracking and pitting effects it is best to seal the concrete. Silanes, siloxanes and silane/siloxane blends are the best types of sealers to battle harmful deicing salts due to their unique penetrating, hydrophobic properties. This sealer, found at The Home Depot, is an industrial grade water and salt repellent that is guaranteed to last up to 10 years. While silanes are of a small structure they sheet water and siloxanes of a larger structure bead water, a combination of the two is going to ensure complete concrete and deicing salt protection.
