howdy y'all. this is my first google group attempt. i have been
searching everywhere to figure out which i should use: a water-based
epoxy penetrating sealer or a sealer that actually reacts with the lime
in the cement to form a silicate, or both. I want my counters to have
a nice sheen to them, but not overly plasticy. I also want maximum
stain protection and heat tolerance (e.g. hot pan). I have just
finished my first attempt at decorative concrete in my countertop. I
polished it with up to 3500 grit diamond pads. I think it looks great.
I just want to get it sealed so I can get it out of my garage and into
If anybody has any other suggestions for sealing I'm open to them.
