Acid Stained Concrete
Decorative stained concrete is an ideal application for yoga studios, architects, offices, lofts, retail shops and showrooms to finished basements. Stained concrete is created from colored acids that interact with reactive metallic salts in the cement and the result is an organic one-of-a-kind beautiful look!
Acid stains need to be neutralized to a balanced PH prior to any coatings. We recommend a low viscosity penetrating epoxy primer followed by 100% solids epoxy, with a scratch resistant urethane as the top coat.
Acid stains have a timeless, minimalistic look.

Earthy colors for decorative concrete
Each and every pour of concrete will react unpredictably to the stain, which will give your space a unique look unlike any other!
The acid in the stain etches the surface, allowing color for deeper penetration. Once the stain reacts, it becomes a part of the concrete and is extremely resistant to fading, or chipping away. The colors for acid-etch staining are organic earthy tones found in nature as seen in the picture.
