▸ A non-hazardous solution easily applied to new or old concrete.
▸ Never needs to be re-applied – ever.
▸ Product costs equivalent to common temporary sealers like silane or siloxane.
▸ Sustainable — Go green: reduces landfill, lowers carbon footprint.
End the costly cycle of concrete damage and replacement.
CreteDefender P2 slows or halts each of the processes that damage concrete. The key is to make the concrete denser and more abrasion resistant so it can stand up to wind, rain, grit, chemicals, and temperature extremes. CreteDefender P2 does that. Apply it instead of commonly used coatings and sealers, and over the lifetime of the concrete, eliminate re-application costs and avoid repair or replacement of damaged concrete. Pay a little for CreteDefender P2 now, or pay a LOT later.
CreteDefender P2 Makes Economical Sense
Permanently protect your concrete. Once and Forever.
That is a bold statement, but CreteDefender P2 is not an ordinary concrete sealer. CreteDefender P2 has been put to the test in some of the most challenging locations: Highway and interstate roads and bridge decks…salt storage facilities…dams…parking structures…water parks…and even commercial cold storage and freezers. After over 21 years of use on over 50 million square feet of concrete and NO warranty claims, CreteDefender P2 is proven to meet the challenge.

What Is CreteDefender P2?
How CreteDefender P2 Works
It Fills the Pores to Keep Salt and Water Out
CreteDefender P2 is unlike any other sealer or protectant. It reacts with lime in concrete to create a gel that fills the pores and tiny cracks in the concrete. The gel hardens and restores concrete’s natural pH and renders it impervious to water, salt, and other chemicals. The reaction takes approximately 75 days to complete, though your concrete is protected after 24 hours.
It is Not a Coating
CreteDefender P2 is not a coating. Unlike coatings, CreteDefender P2 doesn’t sit on top of your concrete. Its reaction penetrates deep into the slab…up to two centimeters further than water is absorbed into the concrete. This depth of penetration creates sufficient protection to both the concrete and the reinforcement. Membranes (coatings and sealers) and water repellants are the common solutions used to prevent concrete deterioration. Membranes fail when the coating is punctured or wears off. Sealers are especially thin membranes with short lives. Water repellants, like silanes and siloxanes, penetrate up to 0.6 cm, so last longer than membranes. However, they need to be reapplied every 3-5 years.
Why Is P2 Better?
• Has no smell, no volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Settlers Green – North Conway, NH
The management of the Settlers Green Outlet Center in North Conway, NH, wanted to stop deterioration of sidewalks at this lifestyle shopping center. Settlers Green has several gathering places to create the feel of a mountain village for shoppers as they enjoy the beauty of the Green Mountains, whether during the beautiful New England summers, or after skiing down any of the nearby slopes in the winter. But, those same winters that create such good skiing wreak havoc on the concrete, which is also dyed earthy colors to add to the serene atmosphere.
The Outlet Center management had just completed a series of concrete repairs in one section of Settlers Green when they contacted CreteDefender, who sent a crew to treat the 16,000 square feet of a prominent public square that they wanted to be sure did not need the same expensive repairs.
Over five years later, the treated concrete still looks great, despite the New England winters, and will continue to do so for years to come.
Divertiland (WaterWorld) Entertainment Park
Bucharest is the center of activity in Romania, but in 2011, it did not have a multi-use outdoor entertainment park. The Divertiland Water Park was created, and is now one of the most popular recreational facilities in the country. But a facility like this must not only include fun attractions, but look great as well. Walkways between the water slides, eating areas, and resting spots needed to accommodate large crowds and be set up in a way that ensure that people to want to return, while also being durable.
Divertiland’s design team decided to use stenciled concrete so the walkways could be made to look like brick, but with the advantages of concrete. However, if the concrete stencil begins to crack or break up, the entire look will be destroyed.
So, to ensure the stencil would retain its original look, withstanding the harsh winters of eastern Europe, Divertiland decided to use CreteDefender P2. The total area covered was over 15,000 square meters (over 160,000 square feet). The concrete was installed and treated in the autumn of 2011, and in 2016 CreteDefender visited Divertiland to inspect the concrete, and it still looks brand new and will do so for years to come!
