Our Eco-Friendly Approach to Concrete Resurfacing in Perth

At Mr Blastit, we understand that your home is your sanctuary, and that’s why our Eco Resurfacing service is all about enhancing your space in the most earth-friendly way possible. It’s our way of ensuring that upgrading your concrete areas is done thoughtfully, with your well-being and our planet’s health in mind.

Our Eco Resurfacing Sealer is a testament to this commitment. Unlike solvent sealers, which contain harmful petrol or oil-based chemicals, our sealer is completely solvent-free. This means you won’t experience any unpleasant odours during the process.

Our UV-stable sealer does more than just keep your concrete flooring surfaces looking good; it’s like sunscreen for your driveway or patio, protecting it from UV damage. This means your surfaces stay in top shape for longer, saving you money on future fixes or touch-ups. This extremely durable product is the smart choice for your wallet and your home.

One of the most significant advantages of our Eco Resurfacing Sealer is its ability to rejuvenate surfaces with a clean, smooth or textured finish. Customisable colours mean keeping up with current designs and colour trends. The ease of reapplication of the sealer to add durability to the surface is another benefit, unlike traditional sealers the polymers in our sealer hold onto each other. Each coat is holding on to one another thus eliminating the risk of delamination. It can be reapplied as needed without leaving unsightly white marks or patchiness of colour most often occurring from solvent sealers. Reapplication is typically every three to five years in high-traffic areas and every five years in low-traffic areas

In contrast, traditional solvent sealers come with a range of drawbacks. They release strong, harmful odours, commonly referred to as VOCs (volatile organic compounds) thanks to the chemicals they contain which flash off or evaporate in the air during application, and can leave a streaky or patchy finish. These sealers often demand reapplication every two years, regardless of usage, and can create unappealing white patches when reapplied.

And here’s the best part: with our Eco Resurfacing, we give you a little tub of base colour, so you can quickly sort out any minor chips or cracks yourself. This means you’re not only keeping your surfaces looking great but also saving some cash on those little touch-ups. Win-win.

FAQs about our concrete resurfacing service

How is your product 100% non-toxic?

The main point of difference for this resurfacing system is it is only compatible with water-based sealers and primers. Whereas nearly all Dulux or On-Crete resurfacing systems use potable water to mix the compounds, the finished product relies on a solvent-based sealer thinned with varying amounts of xylene to seal the surface and enhance and produce an aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Do you care about the environment?

Our system is all about the environment and making a minimal impact, from the initial pressure clean with eco-friendly degreasers and cleaning chemicals to using a water-based primer during the various stages of resurfacing to the final seal coat.

The Primer and the final seal coats are water-based, and we purchase these as concentrates, minimising packaging. The colour comes pre-tinted from the factory, enabling us to only use what we need, not mixing a batch with powdered oxides making more than what we need and having wastage. The colour is also able to last 12-18 months once opened (when stored correctly).

Where do you source your products?

All the products in the resurfacing system are manufactured in Australia.

What happens if a bit chips off?

Patch and repairs are easily undertaken. The colour is pre-tinted in the factory with liquid pigments to minimise any variation, meaning all buckets have next to no variation in colour. Other systems rely on the applicator to add powdered oxide colours on the job, increasing colour variation from mix to mix, making it almost impossible to complete a patch and having it blend in seamlessly.

How long will it take to complete the work, and can I walk on it during the process?

The size of your job, the weather and prep work are big factors in how long the process will take. We allocate two days to fully complete most jobs. The surface can be walked on in between steps if the previous step has had enough time to dry. For a driveway, you will need to park your vehicle elsewhere for at least seven days. Two days for application and five days for curing.

Will you grind the surface before resurfacing?

We will only need to grind if there is an existing coating on the surface, for example, a colour seal, concrete paint or a concrete sealer that isn’t in reasonable condition. During an onsite quote, we will walk you through the process. We’ll clarify anything and answer any questions.

Will you fix the cracks or any chips before resurfacing?

Yes, we can confidently repair cracks that are in the range of 1-3 mm in width before resurfacing over. The same goes for small chips in the concrete.

What do I have to do to prepare for concrete resurfacing?

Before we start resurfacing, we need all the gear, like furniture and pot plants, moved away from the area. It’s also important to keep pets and kids indoors while we’re working. Plus, make sure to switch off any nearby sprinklers or irrigation systems to keep the area dry.


Eco Resurfacing Sealer vs Solvent-based Concrete Sealer

Eco Resurfacing Sealer

  • 100% biodegradable, water-based, environmentally friendly.
  • No petrol or oil-based chemicals – solvent-free.
  • No unpleasant odours.
  • UV stable, so it won’t fade in the sun, and lets the concrete surface breathe.
  • Rejuvenates the surface with a clean, smooth finish.
  • It keeps the colour looking natural, not too bright. The sealer doesn’t change the colour; the colour underneath does that job.
  • It’s easy to apply more when needed, without leaving white marks. Reapplication every three years in high-traffic areas or every five years in low-traffic areas.

Solvent Sealer

  • Toxic solvents can be harmful to your health and the planet.
  • Oil or petroleum-based products.
  • Gives off a strong, unpleasant odour due to the chemicals in the solvent.
  • Most often, it leaves a streaky finish, especially noticeable on dark colours in sunlight.
  • Gives a shiny, wet look. The sealer darkens and brings out the colour, but it fades and leaves the surface looking patchy.
  • It needs a new coat every two years, no matter how much it’s used. The downside is it can turn white when reapplied, which looks bad and is only fixable with more harsh chemicals.

The type of sealer you choose is critical to ensuring your surface looks top-notch for years and minimises maintenance hassle.

Plus, Eco Resurfacing is very user-friendly when it comes to repairs. We include a small tub of the base colour for our clients, so if you ever find a small chip or crack, fixing it yourself is a breeze.

This means you’ll save money since you won’t need to ring us for minor touch-ups. Other products on the market don’t offer this benefit, leaving you to wait and pay for a professional to come and sort out even the smallest repairs.

Taking everything into account, it’s clear that for both home and business concrete resurfacing, Eco Resurfacing is the best choice.
