What to seal a brick floor with?

I just finished laying a brick floor in my hallway. I know I have to let the bricks dry sufficiently before sealing the area. The question I have is what product should I use to seal the bricks, and what is the best way to apply the sealant?

Do you apply a sealant then a polyurethane?

I will be doing this job myself, so any input would be appreciated.

Don't use a product like Thompson's. You need to get a high silicone solid content masonry sealer. Thompson's has had a great marketing plan... become the standard product that everyone thinks they should use. Please visit your local masonry supplier and ask for sealer with a high solid content. Repeated applications will give you even more shine!

Several sealers you miight consider: Sure Klean Weather Seal Siloxane, Drylok Masonry Treatment, or Kure N Seal #30

(Make sure you area is well ventilated if inside your home.)

Good luck with your project.

Thanks BRICK4U.

I've come across some different stuff after you gave me some hints. There's a sealer that is a water-based polyurethane that is appealing to me. It is found at:

Since it's for indoor use (although high traffic), would this be my best route to take? Or would an oil based sealer be better?
