Sealing New Concrete

I poured a new floor in my basement and am planning on framing rooms soon. Is it necessary/beneficial to seal the new concrete before laying the floor? What is the best product to use? The slab is 4" reinforced that poured on 6mm plastic. Thanks

What did you cure your concrete placement with? If you used Kure-N-Seal, then you don't need any additional sealing done.

Especially if you are installing floor covering in the finished rooms.

I did not use anything to cure the concrete.

If you plan on moving heavy furniture or shop equipment around on it, frequently, a good sealant would help to prevent damage or chalking. If you plan on covering all of it with vinyl flooring or even carpet, sealing probably wouldn't be necessary.

i'm not a fan of 6mm plastic as it does degrade,,, too bad you didn't know about stego which seems to be engineers & designers favorite,,, i would seal it - either meadows or euclid are decent [ no $ interest ]
