Early this spring I had a 70 foot by 17 foot RV pad poured.

Now I need to seal the concrete before the winter rains come.

Of course, some products are more effective then others.

Wondering what brand of concrete sealers you folks would recommend, and which ones you would not recommend.

Hi Gordon;

I've purchased sealers at Lowes and Sears in the past. The Sears Weatherbeater held up real well on a place we had in Florida some years ago. Lots of rain and sun.

There are numerous sealers available for exterior concrete. A few things to look for:
Clear, non-yellowing (UV resistant)

Percentage of solids anywhere from 15 to 25

Put down two coats with a low pressure (garden type) sprayer overlapping the areas cover. Put on the second coat in the direction opposite to the first for complete coverage.

I spent the weekend - well mine anyway (Wed/Thur) power washed the concrete, and 24 hours later it was well dried and I applied 2 coats of U.S. Spec CS-25-1315 sealant.

As recommended above it is clear, non-yellowing (UV resistant) w/25% solids. Took a total of 10 gallons to cover the entire area.

Boy, it sure looks shiny!! I expected it to be dull like raw concrete, but it now looks like it's ice covered.

Since you sealed it 24 hours after the pour, I would give it at least a week to cure before putting any load on it.

Be very careful with that surface, I'm sure its very slick now when wet, unless the finishers put a good stipled finish on it, I hate smooth exterior concrete just for that reason. It used to be part of my profession back in the day.
