Acid-stained concrete exudes a beautiful richness that simply cannot be matched by films and dyes applied through mechanical means. Stains can be applied to any concrete surface in the form of micro-toppings.
Acid staining is the process in which colors concentrate, chemicals open up pores in the concrete surface, and salt reacts with the lime concentrate. The acid in the stain lightly etch the surface, allowing metallic salts to penetrate more easily. Once the stain reacts, it permanently bonds with the concrete and won’t fade, chip off or peel away.
Acid-stained concrete offers great benefits, including:
- maximum durability
- elegance and beauty
- low maintenance
- unsurpassed water resistance
- increased energy savings
- and more.
