What coating is better than Super Seal+ when it comes to sealing off hydro-static moisture from pushing off the coating, cross-linking to the Vortex or Polyphatic glaze, being an amazing primer adhesive and moisture barrier? Oh, NONE that we have ever seen.
Super Seal+ has been the “Go-To” sealer for Vortex and the Polyphatic glaze when it comes to locking onto almost any surface such as concrete, wood, steel, iron, aluminum, ceramic tile, glass and more.
GLASS? You wouldn’t believe it but Super Seal was originally designed for very large projects we did with Walmart years ago in coating their glazed ceramic tile floors in their meat cutting areas. Glazed ceramic tile is basically glass. It is non porous and slick.
The issue was when they cut meat they wanted a surface that would not absorb blood and of course ceramic tile was the choice of materials. HOWEVER, the blood was absorbing into the grout lines and this is where Vortex came in to save the day.
Our issue was Vortex will not adhere well to a slick surface like ceramic tile or glass so we had to engineer a primer / sealer / adhesive / crosslinker to get the Vortex to adhere. The bottom line was the development of Super Seal! If you coat a piece of glass with pretty much any paint, wait for it to completely dry, you could probably take a razor blade and scrape it off. As for the Super Seal, you would probably be chipping into the tile before you could get it to release.
Further development of the Super Seal for concrete applications were extremely successful. Moisture that comes up through concrete everyday is the No.1 culprit to blisters and lifting to occur on a normal coating. The moisture comes upward as the day warms up and pushes against the coating. Over time, you will start to get de-laminating of the coating and as the coating gets pushed away from the surface and a blister starts to form filling with water.
With the Super Seal+, it will penetrate the concrete and thus become part of the substrate. Moisture now comes upwards but hits this barrier of Super Seal+ that is now WITHIN the concrete. It can’t push the coating off so the moisture then follows the path of least resistance, basically flow laterally off to the edges and slab.
So be it smooth, steel troweled, high polished concrete or porous it makes no difference as the Super Seal+ will adhere to both porous and non-porous surfaces.
