Is Your Concrete Waterproof?

Updated: Jun 7

So you have decided to go with the beauty and durability of concrete. Great choice!




How would you like to make that beauty and durability last longer with less maintenance? Sure you would! Plus do it all while saving you time and money? No brainer, right?


Did you know you can extend the life of your driveway, patio or sidewalk by simply adding Impede® IntraSeal to the concrete? Impede® IntraSeal is an additive to the concrete mixture that is used to keep water out. It is added during the batching process giving customers invisible superior protection.




Although concrete dries rock solid, it does absorb water. Each time that water freezes and thaws, the integrity of the concrete is compromised and cracks form. Current practice is to seal on a regular basis. While this does help to prevent water absorption, it only works on the area where the seal is applied.


Since the seal is only used on the top surface of the concrete, water is able to seep in through the sides and bottom. Since there was no way to seal the hidden sides of the concrete, water damage in the form of cracks to the driveways, patios, and sidewalks, is inevitable.

Reduce the cost and headache of sealing your concrete in the future by starting the project right with Impede® IntraSeal.


By adding Impede® IntraSeal, customers are able to ensure 360 degrees of protection! The additive reduces freeze/thaw damage to the concrete as well as protects it from harsh deicing chemicals. This added protection extends the life of your concrete.


Adding the superior protection of Impede® IntraSeal saves customers time and money. The additive lengthens the life of your driveway, patio and sidewalk and takes out the inconvenience of having to reseal your concrete every five to ten years.
