What do professionals do, to achieve better concrete?
Concrete Curing – keep the concrete hydrated for as long as possible
Prevent Surface Cracking – reduce rapid moisture loss
Protect finished concrete from other trades and reduce end of job defects
Concrete Sealer Pro Seal 896, for Quality Builders / Developers
Concrete Sealer with cure assist – Pro Seal 896 is spray applied to wet surfaces without rollers, always on a wet surface. This method keeps the surface temperature down and helps the concrete sealer penetrate deep into the surface. Don’t wait 28 days to seal your concrete, seal and cure assist in one application with Pro Seal 896.

Consider weather-related factors and other factors such as shade, areas exposed to direct sunlight, wind, rain, temperature fluctuations, shelter and other factors that can either accelerate, delay or affect the suitable time in which the surface is safe to walk on.
When in doubt it is usually safe to walk on and apply water on the surface 12 – 16 hours after the pour is complete in most cases as a general rule.
Extremely Hot Dry and /or unstable conditions
Weather-Shielding (Primer Sealing the surface) as soon as the concrete is hard enough to walk on will assist the concretes ability to block out and better endure environmental instability
Blow and/or lightly broom or gently rinse surface debris off the surface
Wet the surface lightly with very gentle water pressure
Sealing Coloured Concrete with Oxide in the Mix – 24 hours after pour
Due to the possibility of unknown additives that can be present in oxides or colour concrete premixes, we take the following approach to sealing new coloured concrete.
DAY 1 – (minimum 24 hours after pour)
Lightly broom and rinse the surface of the new concrete with water thoroughly. Do not use high-pressure systems this early in the curing process on a fresh slab. Whilst the concrete surface is wet, apply Pro Polish 770 (mixed with 4 parts water:1 part concentrate) at a rate of 1 Litre per 5m2. Wait for 15 minutes and see if there is any puddling. Be sure to broom out the first coat evenly, pulling puddles to dry areas. Let dry for 24 hours before applying the second coat of Pro Seal 896.
Effective Concrete Sealing for Large Car Parks, Driveways and Pathways
Introducing the Commercial Spray Unit (CSU).
by Water Based Sealers Pty. Ltd.
Concrete Sealer WBS Pro Seal 896 is engineered for large area concrete sealing. Sealing concrete quickly and efficiently is what we do best. Once you are trained by WBS to use our CSU sealing system you won’t look back.
Throughout 10 years of Pro Seal 896 research and development, we found we were consistently being slowed down by our application equipment. The only way we could fully optimise application and unlock the true cost advantages of this outstanding concrete sealer was to design and built our own equipment. The WBS CSU is built for strength and speed. Once a slab is prepared and ready to go you can seal 500m2 per hour without breaking a sweat. Better yet, it’s completely stand alone so you don’t need to drag around an air hose or a power cord.
The CSU is made in Australia for tough, on-site conditions.
Purchase your CSU with a Bucket of Pro Seal 896 for just $2265 +GST.
You will receive free Certified Applicator Training (normally $800 per person).
