It is working ok in their restaurant with just foot traffic.
    So there ya go!
    Chiming in on the seal hard. It is NOT adequate for breweries. Maybe for a tasting room with just foot traffic, but not if you're using caustic and PAA. We had it installed a bit over a year ago, and the chemicals have eaten bits of the concrete already.

      The important thing about SealHard -- which is great stuff -- is that it's a concrete hardener but NOT a floor finish. It will not give you that glossy, shiny look and it does not seal the pores of the cement. For that sort of thing -- shiny & sealed/sanitary -- you want a urethane sealant. Get one specifically rated for harsh chemicals, as you'll be dumping beer, PBW, etc., on it.
