He adds that a block filler or penetrating sealer
might be applied first to address potential adhesion problems due to the porosity of the concrete.
The concrete should first be cleaned by power washing, and then the silane or siloxane based penetrating sealer

The Steelcote division of Chemline has introduced Floor-Nu Penetrating Sealer
, a two-component clear epoxy for sealing and deeply penetrating concrete or masonry surfaces against the effects of moisture, freeze/thaw cycles, salts, oils and specific chemicals.
It's extremely durable, slip resistant, stain resistant (a penetrating sealer
makes it more so), and fireproof.
It is an aqueous polyurethane dispersion that can be diluted with water, water-soluble organic solvents, and water/solvent mixtures to create a penetrating sealer

If tile is natural stone, seal surface with penetrating sealer
Paint it or seal it with a penetrating sealer
