Q: Why choose a concentrate over a ready-to-use product?
A: We offer a concentrated form of all of our Premium Project sealers to help reduce waste and shipping costs by using smaller containers. This makes it so we can pass the savings on to you, the customer, which makes the concentrates a lower price. There is no difference in the performance of the sealer between the two. Think of it like this: in a concentrate product you add your own water and in a ready-to-use product, we add the water for you.
