CONCRETE STAIN & DYE

Concrete stains are known for their translucent color and one-of-a-kind patterning. Because of concrete's porous qualities, they penetrate and react chemically with the cement, adding permanent color that won't fade, chip, or peel.

 

Acid staining is a classic decorative concrete technique that dates back over a century. Using a chemical reaction between metallic salts and free lime in the concrete, acid stains create unique designs that cannot be duplicated by other materials. For eye-catching, yet subtly earthy tones, look no further than acid stained concrete.

 

Concrete dyes are translucent, penetrating color solutions. Unlike acid-based stains, they do not react chemically with the concrete. Instead, they contain very fine coloring agents that penetrate into the concrete surface.  Both water- and solvent-based dyes are available, with each type having unique qualities. Dyes tend to produce tones that are more predictable and uniform than stains, but it's still possible to achieve interesting color variations.
