Browse our Kemiko Stone Tone Sealer II FAQs for answers to common questions about how to apply concrete sealer:
Which type of sealer should I use?
There are many Kemiko single component sealer options, and your choice will depend on the finish you’d like and the conditions to which your floor will be subjected.
For interior residential floors, we recommend Kemiko Stone Tone™ Sealer II for its ease of use, low odor and fast cure time.
Kemiko Stone Tone™ Sealer II is a water base acrylic sealer available in a gloss finish. This single component sealer is very user friendly to apply and is ready for light foot traffic within 8 – 10 hours. We recommended applying Kemiko Easy Shine™ Mop On Wax over floors sealed with Kemiko Stone Tone™ Sealer II. This will protect the sealer and extend its life.
Commercial and industrial floors are subject higher traffic and/or harsh use conditions. So, an epoxy or polyurethane coating is a better choice to protect those types of floor surfaces. Both epoxies and polyurethanes have higher scratch and chemical resistance. To achieve the best results and performance, we recommend that you hire a professional with experience applying two-component epoxy and polyurethane systems.
What is the coverage rate of Kemiko Stone Tone™ Sealer II?
Depending on coat thickness and floor texture, Kemiko Stone Tone™ Sealer will cover 300 – 500 square feet per gallon with 1 coat. Rough surfaces take more sealer to fill in pores and smooth surfaces use less.
What is the best way to apply Kemiko Stone Tone™ Sealer II?
How to apply concrete sealer: Spray application of Kemiko Stone Tone™ Sealer II produces the best results. Use a commercial sprayer with a gun tip size between .013 and .015 inches with pressure adjusted for proper atomization. Avoid using a pump sprayer with water base sealers, because they can’t produce the consistent pressure needed for uniform application.
