Oil and Stain Resistant Penetrating Sealer

Choosing A Penetrating Stain And Oil Resistant Concrete Sealer

Oil-stained concrete brick pavers natural stone surfaces can be restored and protected.

Any Exposed Porous Surface Is Open To Staining And Discoloration.

Porous surfaces such as concrete, brick or natural stone are susceptible to staining and discoloration. Anyone telling you differently is misleading you.  This can come from water, oil, organic and food based substances.

People in charge of keeping these surfaces clean and pristine often turn to clear concrete sealers to provide protection and reduce maintenance costs.  However when it comes to oil and stain resistance, not all sealers are created equal.

Silane And Siloxane Sealers Only Prevent Water… Not Oils And Grease Contaminants.

Many of the penetrating type of sealers are silane and/or siloxane sealers (silicone based).  These penetrating sealers are effective in sealing out water, but do not protect against oil based stains from petroleum products or from fat grease.

Film-Forming Sealers Can Become Slippery And Yellow Over Time.

Other types of sealers are film-forming sealers, and a provide glossy barrier on the top surface that can become slippery and yellow with age.

Longer Lasting Oil And Water Stain Resistance.

Sealing products utilizing fluoropolymer resins offer superior stain resistance properties compared to other treatments.  They are quickly becoming the next generation of surface protectors.

With a fluoropolymer-based penetrating sealer you get an invisible, non slippery, long-lasting oil and water stain resistance.

These products can be used on any interior or exterior concrete or masonry surfaces which are exposed to water, oil or other organic substances, usually susceptible to staining or discoloration.

Using An Oil And Stain Resistant Penetrating Sealer

Most people have come into contact with a product that was made from a fluoropolymer.
Teflon™ fluoropolymers which were developed in 1938 by DuPont.
Teflon coatings are well known for their non-stick, friction-reducing properties.

In the same way penetrating sealers utilizing fluoropolymer resins are characterized by a high resistance to oils.

They also repel:

  • Airborne dirt
  • Pollution
  • Acid rain
  • Mineral and salt corrosion.

Fluoropolymer Products Create A Barrier That Locks-Out Oils, Water And Soil.

Fluoropolymer based sealers penetrate into porous materials (like concrete, natural stone and pavers, etc.), creating a long-lasting barrier that “locks-out” oils, water and soil.

This barrier forces liquids to bead up on the surface, allowing them to be picked up more easily, and preventing them from causing a stain.

Penetrating Sealers Also Prevent Dusting, Spalling And Inhibit Efflorescence

The penetrating sealer will not only provide improved chemical and oil resistance, but it will also prevent dusting, spalling and inhibit efflorescence.

Fluoropolymer sealers such as CoverSeal PEN 55 and CoverShield U140 fluoropolymer are ideal for:

      Hello Terry,

      Thank you for contacting CoverTec. I am just now seeing your email. If your driveway is concrete I recommend our CoverShield U140 sealer. If you have brick paver then I recommend our StrongSeal Wetlook sealer. Both products have very good oil and stain resistance. You should clean the surface before you seal. Use CoverClean HC or similar for oil removal. All our product ship free in the USA. For pricing please visit our online store at https://covertecproducts.com/product/covershield-u140-gloss/

      Hello Donalad,

      I recommend our StrongSeal Wetlook for your pavers. This product has good oil and stain resistance. Cost $235.5 gal and $106/2 gal kit.
      For 500 sq.ft I think 4 gals is plenty for 2 coats. Please contact the office at 754 223 2465 if you wish to purchase.

    It’s interesting to read that Fluoropolymer will actually penetrate into the surface allowing for a deep, long lasting seal that will protect it. It makes sense that this would be helpful for something like concrete, particularly a porous one, because you wouldn’t have to worry about how long it’d last, etc. Thanks for sharing; I want to have my garage redone and I think concrete sealing would be a great way to make it more usable and luxurious.
