Why do we seal decorative concrete?

One problem with colored concrete that plain gray doesn't worry about much is efflorescence (our baby has a skin disease!). Efflorescence is a powdery white material that forms on the surface of the concrete and that is caused by calcium hydroxide which is naturally in the concrete after it sets. As water moves out of the concrete it carriers with it some of this calcium hydroxide, which then reacts with carbon dioxide in the air to become calcium carbonate. On plain gray concrete, you really can't see efflorescence, and even if you can, typically no one worries about it. It doesn't affect the concrete's strength. On colored concrete, if you are careful about mix design, and get a cure & seal down as soon as possible, you can eliminate some of the danger of efflorescence.

Cure & seal darkens and intensifies the color.

 Summary

* Curing concrete is critical to a high-quality finished surface.
* Keep evaporation retardant on hand for initial curing.
* For final curing, water curing is the best method if feasible.
* For colored concrete, most contractors use cure & seal, which is effective for both curing and sealing.
* Use a cure & seal material that complies with the requirements of ASTM C1315, Type I, Class A.
* For sealing, use solvent-based high-solids-content acrylics.
