After years of bubbling, yellowing, peeling, and the constant threat of whiteout, we decided to make a change. Tired of conventional sealer failures, we set out to make a sealer that solved these issues. StampShield can be applied the day after the concrete is poured if there is no standing water, at anytime of day (40F-90F) with no concern of bubbling, and cures quickly allowing you to get the concrete sealed and on to the next job. Quelch your fear of sealing and put an end to call backs! Contact Us: (607) 775-1948 or visit www.trinic.us
