Silane/Siloxane Sealer Foundation Armor Sx5000 Reviews

Applicable to the interior and exterior surfaces

First and foremost, this is an excellent sealer as it can be applied either inside or outside. So, regardless of where the surface is located, you will still be able to protect it using the same product instead of buying another one. It can also be applied horizontally or vertically.

Creates a barrier that prevents damage

After sealing your surface using the Armor SX5000 WB, it will repel water and other stains. This water-based sealer penetrates deep into the surface where it chemically reacts to create water repellent barriers within the pores, which reduces water absorption by up to 95%. In return, it will resist damage caused by water absorption like spalling, cracking, salt damage, pitting, freeze-thaw damage, efflorescence, and mold & mildew. This is one of the reasons it approved by the Department of Transportation (DOT) as being a water repellent sealer.

Easy to apply

Using this sealer doesn’t require one to be a professional as it is easy and fast. Simply get a brush, roller, or pump sprayer.  A brush is suitable to use when you have a small surface to cover, while a pump sprayer is ideal for covering a larger area.

Extremely durable

A challenge that many homeowners face is acquiring a sealer that doesn’t last for long. Most silane sealers last up to 5 years. But this is not the case with Armor SX5000 as it can last up to 10 years. As a result, you can rest assured that your pavement or driveway is protected away from the elements for at least the next 8 years or so.

Covers a wider area

The 5 gallons Foundation Armor SX5000 WB sealer can cover up to 1000 square feet in just 1 coat and up to 500 square feet in two coats. This is amazing as most sealers are not able to cover such a wide area. If you’re covering a small area, you can always keep the remaining sealer for future use.

Applicable on various types of surfaces

Unlike other sealers that only limit you to certain surfaces, Armor SX5000 doesn’t. You can use this sealer on a variety of surfaces such as brick, concrete, natural stones, pavers, and aggregate.

Maintains the natural look

The Armor Sx5000 WB doesn’t change the look of your concrete driveway or paver. Instead, it maintains a natural and unsealed appearance. Unlike similar products, you will not see any visible surface film after applying it. On top of that, it has up to 5X more active ingredients than similar competitor products.
