SEMCO Natural Shield Penetrating Concrete Sealer


If you're looking to protect your surfaces while maintaining their natural beauty, SEMCO Natural Shield Surface Sealer is the perfect solution. Whether it's concrete, block, or any other porous surface, this guide will walk you through the application process step by step.

  1. Surface Preparation:
    Before applying SEMCO Natural Shield, it's crucial to prepare the surface properly. Refer to the SEMCO Surface Preparation methods section for specific instructions tailored to your needs. Sweep away any debris to ensure a clean surface and proper adhesion.
  2. Application Technique:
    When it comes to applying SEMCO Natural Shield, you have several options. You can use a 1/4” nap roller, HVLP sprayer, pump sprayer, or airless sprayer with a tip size of 17. However, regardless of the method chosen, a minimum of three coats is necessary for optimal performance. Start by applying the first coat evenly, making sure not to allow the sealer to dry before applying the second and third coats. Be mindful not to let the sealer puddle, as this can lead to uneven coverage. Repeat the application process until you've achieved a minimum of three coats. Depending on the porosity of the surface, additional coats may be required.
  3. Essential Tools:
    To ensure a successful application, gather the necessary tools beforehand. You'll need an airless sprayer with a tip size of 17 for efficient coverage. Alternatively, a 1/4” nap roller can be used for smaller areas or touch-ups. Additionally, consider using a pump sprayer for added convenience, though it's optional.

 SEMCO Natural Shield offers long-lasting protection for various surfaces, including X-Bond, concrete, and block. While X-Bond typically requires three coats, other surfaces may need additional coats to achieve the desired level of protection.

 In summary, applying SEMCO Natural Shield Surface Sealer requires careful surface preparation, followed by a meticulous application technique. By following these steps and using the recommended tools, you can ensure maximum performance and protection for your surfaces.

 Remember, proper maintenance and periodic reapplication of the sealer will help prolong its effectiveness and keep your surfaces looking their best for years to come. With SEMCO Natural Shield, you can enjoy both the natural beauty of your surfaces and the peace of mind knowing they're adequately protected.
