Concrete Protection That’s Easy on the Environment and Tough to Beat
Environmentally conscious concrete protection that actually works.
PoreShield’s concrete penetration capabilities go just as deep as our American roots. PoreShield is a plant-based, eco-friendly alternative to solvent-based concrete sealers.
Made from 100% American-farmed soybeans and produced completely in the United States, PoreShield significantly extends the life of untreated concrete.
Unlike high-VOC solvent-based concrete sealers, products formulated with PoreShield are as easy on people as they are on the environment, so there’s no need for specialized training, equipment or personal protective equipment (PPE).
- No special training
- No specialized equipment
- No Additional PPE
Apply the eco-friendly, self-sealing liquid with brooms, brushes, handheld garden sprayers, backpack sprayers, or high-pressure truck sprayers. PoreShield is USDA BioPreferred and can be used on commercial, industrial, and residential concrete applications to provide the same protection as on highways, roads and bridges.
Eliminate environmentally harmful run-off and fumes associated with solvent-based sealants with products powered by PoreShield, a nontoxic and hazard-free soy methyl ester-polystyrene (SME-PS). PoreShield-based products reduce volatile organic compounds (VOCs) by 90% and eliminate the need for more toxic solvents.
Cost-effective, affordable products containing PoreShield are readily available and have been proven to dramatically extend the functional life of any concrete substrate. Most surface-protectant concrete sealers lose effectiveness quickly and need to be reapplied every three years. PoreShield lasts for 10+ years.
PoreShield was developed as the result of a collaboration with the Indiana Soybean Alliance (ISA), United Soybean Board, Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT), and Purdue University. INDOT approached research at Purdue because they needed a durable and sustainable solution to solve a very expensive and inconvenient problem: roadway and bridge deterioration.
