Welcome to the forums!

Generally you would sand, stain and then apply 3 coats of poly but you say it isn't wood - is it OSB?

You could prime them and then apply a couple of coats of enamel - like porch and deck enamel. If you really want them to look nice,you would need to remove the treads and replace with real wood.
