What is Sealer?

RussTech SEALERS are both breathable and membrane forming. SEALERS are applied when the concrete requires excellent resistance to salt and waterborne contaminants. SEALERS are designed to give the customer the option of a durable glossy or matte finish and can even resist oil penetration. Your local RussTech representative can recommend the right product for your application. SEALERS should never be applied over any other concrete coatings.

Why Seal?

Concrete sealers are used on concrete to close up the pores in the concrete surface so it will resist water, de-icing salts, and other aggressive chemicals. Sealers are often used to prevent soiling, resist staining, facilitate the ease of cleaning, brighten concrete colors and exposed aggregates, and produce a water resistant surface. Sealers may also be used to dustproof concrete surfaces. Superior quality sealers usually consist of pure forms of acrylic resin that are non-styrenated and non-yellowing. Quality concrete sealers will last three to five years and require minimal maintenance.

“The environmentally safe way to seal concrete and wood surfaces.”

THE BEAN™ produces a satin to transparent finish on wood surfaces and a transparent finish on concrete surfaces. This patented formula is designed to penetrate the pores of concrete and wood surfaces from which it quickly disperses water.

This method of protection does not bead water. THE BEAN™ has little or no harmful odor. This product is the most environmentally friendly of its kind. Overspray will not harm plants or animals. Time is saved by not having to cover plants or applying by roller.

When applied according to label instructions, this product will provide 1 year protection for wood and 2 years protection for concrete surfaces.


THE BEAN™ is a fresh alternative to the typical sealers on the market. The product is probably the most environmentally safe brought to market so far. Its main ingredient- soybean oil- is absolutely harmless to plants and animals.

THE BEAN™ does not qualify as a curing compound; however, when curing blankets or plastics are being used, an application of

THE BEAN™ has been found to minimize or eliminate discoloration of all regular and pervious concrete surfaces due to condensation lines (tiger stripes) from being covered with plastic or curing blankets.
