CoverShield U140 Semi Gloss Heavy Duty Stain & Oil Resistant Concrete Sealer
How Can You Stop Oil From Staining Your Concrete?
Concrete itself is a naturally porous material. It’s open. It has capillaries that solutions and contaminants can soak into.
You need to block those pores by applying a barrier, or some kind of repelling chemical to stop that oil from getting into the concrete.
There are 2 ways to do it:
1) It can be done with a film-forming sealer.
Something that will put a barrier across the surface, and stops the oil from getting into the concrete.
2) It can also be done with a penetrating sealer.
This product is resistant to oil, not just a water repellent sealer. Some examples would be our CoverSeal PEN 55 and Coverseal Premium. These products will soak into the concrete, and repel the oil from getting down into the surface.
Covertec Products’ popular film-forming sealer is called CoverShield U140.
It provides an absolute barrier, to stop oil getting into the concrete. It soaks into the subsurface of the concrete, and leaves a thin film on the top that is:
- Very oil resistant
- Highly fuel resistant
- Provides an absolute barrier.
With penetrating sealers, the surface is still open, so technically, oil can get into that top surface. However, the CoverShield U140 provides a highly resistant barrier which would be the best way to stop oil getting into concrete.
What Is CoverShield U140 Semi Gloss Concrete Sealer?
CoverShield U140 is a highly oil and stain resistant polyurethane sealer.
It’s water-based, and provides thin coat that goes on concrete to easily repel:
- Chemical stains.
We recommend using it mainly for interior applications such as:
- Trowel finished concrete
- Smooth concrete
Typical areas include auto garage floors, workshops or in factories.
The product has a lot of industrial applications, but it’s suitable for consumer type situations as well. Customers report using it successfully on residential garage floors, driveways, etc.
It can repel virtually any petroleum-based chemical or oil solutions that might get into a concrete surface. It’s ability to repel oil, diesel and hydraulic fluid spills is unparalleled.
It’s also used on decorative concrete. It’s a sealer for protecting colors on stained concrete. Simply apply it after staining your surface and it will provide a highly oil resistant seal on the surface.
CoverShield U140 also has strong industrial uses due to it’s ability to resist and repel:
- Hydraulic motor oils
- Cutting oils.
In factories where cutting fluids and lubricating oils are used, it’s a challenge to prevent those chemicals from penetrating the slab. CoverShield U140 has no problem repelling these from entering a concrete surface.
One of the benefits customers rave about with U140 is that the surface prep is insanely easy. As long as the floor is clean and it’s absorbent (water will soak into it), you can apply CoverShield U140.
It’s the exact opposite of applying an epoxy coating that requires surface grinding or expensive prep.
While epoxy coatings provide oil and chemical resistance, you have to significantly grind the concrete down so it sticks to the floor. You also have to apply a very thick layer of the epoxy to get the maximum protection.
CoverShield U140 provides extreme protection… but with a very thin coat. On top of that, because it’s very thin, it doesn’t lift and peel like an epoxy would.
CoverTec’s U140 clearly offers contractors and DIY-ers more bang for the buck because it:
- Requires very little surface surface prep
- Provides higher a coverage area
- Is extremely easy to application.
