ENDURABLE CONCRETE STAIN is a semi-transparent penetrating stain. Our new technology has made the particle size smaller and lowered the viscosity making it easier to mix. UV protection makes this an excellent stain for exterior applications as well as interior applications. It is quick and easy to apply and is ready to be sealed in a short period of time.
Stains may be mixed in either water, acetone, or denatured alcohol. Picking a carrying agent may depend on different types of concrete. Vertical or sloping surfaces might work better with acetone as it will dry faster.
To create different effects, you can combine different carry agents. You may add water to acetone or denatured alcohol for different results. Adding water to stain mixed in acetone will allow the stain to not dry or “flash off” as quickly when staining.
Adding stain to the ENDURABLE SEALERS can help to hide or cover up stains or blemished concrete. Lighter amounts of stain can give the top coat of sealer different accents, while large amounts can make the sealer and concrete appear opaque.
ENDURABLE CONCRETE STAIN mixed in water can be sprayed over ENDURABLE CONCRETE SEALER that has cured long enough, typically 3-8 hours after application depending on porosity and weather conditions. This staining system is a can deliver durable and vivid results, while using zero solvents. A first layer of sealer must be applied first and allowed to cure enough before a second layer of sealer is applied to stain into with stain mixed in water.
