Why do surfaces need sealing?

One of the main causes of deterioration in paving surfaces is the ingress and subsequent egress of water, which generally comes from rain or pool water. Flooded and soaked paving draws in water therefore soaking up dissolved salts, dissolved gasses, micro bacteria, acid rain, chlorine etc... When this water evaporates it not only deposits these harmful items within and on the surface causing staining and deterioration, they also encourage the formation of efflorescence. In concrete these issues can lead to rusting of reinforcing, creating cracking and concrete cancer. If left untreated the surface will eventually be required to be replaced.


Guards sealant range prevents the ingress of water to porous surfaces, therefore reducing the impact of flooded or soaked paving, driveways, walls, pool areas, alfresco areas, feature walls or any porous surface internally or externally. This leaves an easier to maintain surface that lasts up to 10 years longer.

At Guard Industry, we pride ourselves on our high performing ProtectGuard and ImperGuard range of products. These range of products protect a wide range of everyday surfaces from;
