The Eagle Seal Satin Seal concrete sealer is a non-yellowing acrylic sealer that offers to provide an appropriate level of protection for all types of concrete. However, the Satin Seal is only an acrylic sealer, according to information found on its SDS sheets. Therefore, it is not an appropriate choice for any and every type of concrete; rather, it is appropriate for certain projects that require a surface-level sealer.
The Satin Seal will bond to the concrete’s surface, featuring large particles of acrylic sealant that will not penetrate past the tiny surface pores natural to all concrete. While a penetrating sealer will, of course, penetrate to chemically react within the concrete to provide protection, a surface-level sealer, like the Satin Seal, remains on the surface of the concrete to function like a raincoat; It will repel up to a certain level of water and salts. We would recommend the Satin Seal for delicate types of decorative concrete, stamped concrete and pavers.
If you are looking for a decorative sealer with a satin sheen it would be best to use this product. Just remember that decorative sealers need to be reapplied every year or so, more frequent than penetrating sealers which can last upwards of 5 years.
