Dog Kennel Sealer X-1 is a permanent silicate based deep penetrating sealer. This means that it is guaranteed to last for the life of your concrete dog kennel. It chemically bonds to the concrete to become part of its integral structure. It is highly effective in dog kennel environments making the concrete physically stronger and denser to stop dusting and crumbling.
Dog Kennel Sealer X-1 penetrates through the capillaries of the concrete to a maximum depth of up to 1/4″. Then it chemically neutralizes damaging chemicals to form a hard insoluble structure based on calcium silicate and calcium hydroxide. Unlike surface coatings, this sealer cannot scratch off or damaged by efflorescence. It will not wear down due to heavy traffic because it is permanent.
Dog Kennel Sealer X-1 leaves a natural finish (no sheen) after application. it is UV resistant, non-yellowing, breathable and the surface will not be slippery. It is environmentally friendly, non-toxic and nonflammable because it does not contain chemical solvents or release any VOC or noxious fumes. It is a ready to use, DIY type sealer which has a shelf life of at least two years.
Dog Kennel Sealer X-1 is easy to apply using a brush, medium nap roller or low pressure sprayer at any temperature between 40 and 80°F. The surface does not need any special treatment but it must be oil and dust free to allow proper penetration of the sealer. Test this with a droplet of water on the concrete which should absorb readily within 20-30 seconds. If it does not, then treat with Dog Kennel Etcher prior to sealer application. It will cover approximately 200 to 400 sf/gal/app depending on the concrete porosity. Apply two coats rather than one thick coat. Typically a 5 gallon pail will seal 700-800sf of poured concrete using the two required applications.
