    Stringent environmental regulations have forced the concrete finishing market to reduce volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Formulators use water based polymers to reduce these emissions. In this paper, the chemical composition of commercial aqueous acrylic latex concrete seals, and their performance is presented. A discussion of efflorescence and its prevention, as well as concrete sealer application and maintenance procedures are also presented.
