Learn more about sealing concrete:
Film-forming sealers are the type most often used for decorative concrete work, and they do just what the name implies—form a protective film on the surface of the concrete that will prevent the intrusion of water, chlorides and harmful deicing chemicals. Most of them also impart a sheen that highlights the beauty of colored or exposed aggregate finishes.
Tip: Look for a walkway sealer that offers UV-resistance and breathability and reseal every few years, or as needed.
Because good traction is important on walkway surfaces, a slip-resistant additive such as Traction Grip from Brickform can be mixed into the sealer before application to improve traction.
