Developing Ionic Solutions for Concrete Sealers

Concrete sealers are a process that is often not completed but is very important for protecting concrete from staining, wear, and damage. There are many options currently available on the market today although not all of them offer the same level of protections. Manufacturers of concrete sealing products are developing a better option when using [...]

Prevent Tannin Stains with Eco-Friendly Emulsion

Have you ever finished a wood project and been disappointed when the finish has been marred by mysteriously appearing dark spots? These spots are caused by naturally occurring tannin, an astringent, plant polyphenolic compound that is a binder for proteins in trees. It is a common problem when working with many wood species and can [...]

Protect Concrete With The Best Water-Based Coatings

Now that spring is finally here, and it is the perfect time to tackle the projects that have been on hold all winter. Concrete sealing is one such project that should be considered. Protecting concrete from issues that affect wear will add durability and prevent problems from occurring. There are many types of concrete sealants [...]

Ottopol KX-99: Fastest and Most Resistant Coating

Ottopol KX-99 is a polymer for water base paint and coatings for concrete you need to know about. Exterior concrete can be a difficult material to coat because it's easily damages by many harmful elements including UV rays, heavy traffic, and harsh weather conditions. The correct application will protect the concrete from these damaging and [...]

How Coatings Keep Concrete Uncompromised

It’s difficult to imagine a world without concrete. Our roads, sidewalks, and buildings would be weak and messy. They would be dangerous and virtually unlivable. Additionally, a world without concrete means a world without highways, airports, and even without the Panama Canal and the Hoover Dam. The nature of concrete—the way in which a variety [...]
