Acid staining provide a rich depth of varying earth-toned colors to concrete floors. Acid stains can be applied to achieve a fairly uniform color, multi-layered variegated tones, or natural flow patterns in the concrete. We recommend acid stains if you want to stain exterior concrete, are seeking a mottled or flowy look for your interior concrete, or if you are looking for earth-toned colors such as browns, ambers, and rusty reds.
Acid stains work by penetrating the surface and creating chemically with the hydrate lime (calcium hydroxide) in the concrete. The acid opens the surface by etching the concrete allowing metallic salts to penetrate and react with the lime. Once the stain reacts, the color become a permeant part of the concrete that will not chip off, flake, or fade making an excellent choice for exterior concrete staining.
Acid stain are typically limited to a pallet of 11 earth-toned colors. Our color palette includes Ebony, Mission Brown, Walnut, Olive, Mahogany, Caramel, Jade, Coffee, Amber, Turquoise, and Weathered Terracotta
