Sodium Silicate Based Sealers

Sodium silicate based sealers are a propietary blend of Silconate polymers which penetrate concrete surfaces providing an increase in abrasion resistance and a reduction in the surface absorption of liquids. The product reacts with the elements in the concrete surface to impart a low sheen which enhances the appearance of the concrete.

Where to Use

  • Use on any horizontal old or new concrete surface, interior or exterior where a hard, light to moderate abrasion resistant surface is required.
  • Educational and medical facilities
  • Warehouses and industrial plants
  • Food processing plants
  • Stores and shopping malls
  • Parking Structures
  • Service stations
  • Offices and multi-residential buildings


  • Resists penetration of oil and many chemical
  • VOC compliant
  • Reduces porosity and increases hardness
  • Improved chemical and abrasion resistance
  • Provides a dust free surface
  • Easy to maintain
  • Complies with today's environmental, health and safety regulations
  • Canadian Food Inspection Agency acceptance

Silane/Siloxane Sealers

Silane/Siloxane sealers are a deep penetrating liquid designed to protect concrete structures, decks, and surfaces agianst the adverse effects of deicing salts, moisture, weathering and freeze damage. They can be applied to any siliceous material, even in a damp environment. These sealers can be used on vertical or horizontal applications. Once the silane molecules penetrates the surface, it chemically react with and bonds to the concrete or masonry substrate.

NOTE: Some manufacturers have developed some hybrids formulas to improves their sealers performances.

Where to Use

  • Sealing of parking garages ramps and decks or parkades
  • Bridges decks and abutments
  • Barrier walls


  • Penetrate deep into the substrate
  • Last for many years
  • The deep penetration protects it from weathering, ultra violet radiation and abrasion
  • Significantly reduce chloride ion intrusion and will enable concrete and masonry to breathe. Corrosion activity of the structure can therefore be reduced.
  • Provides a low cost protection system over the life of a structure

Epoxy Sealers

For sealing concrete surfaces, epoxy sealers provide the best protection. These sealers prevents deterioration of concrete surfaces while offering a highly durable surface.

Where to Use

  • Parking decks
  • Bridge decks
  • Industrial floors
  • Anywhere that needs to improve durability


  • Excellent Sealing ability
  • Maximum penetration
  • Improves wear and chemical resistance
  • Reduces water and salt absorption
  • Dustproofs soft floor surfaces

Surface Preparation | East Coast Coatings

We use technologically advanced dust-free shot blast equipment, dust-free grinders, scarifiers and scrubbers to prepare your substrate to receive your new flooring system. Shot blasting is a method used on concrete and steel surfaces which prepares the surface for the application of a coating, seamless floor or any type of overlays.


Decorative Floors | East Coast Coatings

Designers and builders are drawn to stained concrete because of the unique outcome that can be achieved combining color and application techniques on concrete slabs. Versatile application where we incorporate vinyl flake chips and epoxy to create a decorative floor finish that is easy to clean and is resistant to chemicals.


Control/Expansion Joint Sealants | East Coast Coatings

Semi-rigid epoxy joint fillers are a two component, self-leveling sealant for load bearing saw cuts or preformed control joints. This system supports the joint edges and reduces spalling of the edges caused by wheel traffic. Semi-rigid to formula that allows for limited temperature and humidity movement of concrete. Concrete construction & control joints. Crack filler repair for old floors.


Services | East Coast Coatings

Our crews and equipment are fully mobile, allowing us to service you anywhere in Atlantic Canada. Benefit from our outstanding service and long list of comprehensive extras.


Seamless Floors | East Coast Coatings

This troweled system produces an aesthetic and sealed seamless floor composed of multi-colored hard granular aggregates and is finished with a transparent topcoat which is available in gloss. A seamless Floor with a integral cove base is by far, the preferred method for ease of maintenance of floor and highly recommended by environmental health code.


Concrete Repair & Restoration | East Coast Coatings

Fiber-reinforced repair mortars are one component, shrinkage-compensated, superplasticising admixture enhanced with silica fume to offer high strength and superior performance for structural concrete repair. Polyurethanes injection systems are a two component, 100% solid, flexible polyurethane grout used to firmly bond to concrete surface, and will displace and stop water infiltrations.


Specialty Coatings | East Coast Coatings

The system is applied with a epoxy primer, electrodes made of copper are installed on the edge and between the control joints to insure the conductivity, conductive coat is installed followed by a chemical resistant top coat. A floor can be 100% completed overnight; including all surface preparation and the installation of multiple MMA coats.
