So how does it work? Unlike acid stains which perform a chemical reaction once in contact with the surface of the concrete to achieve their color, Eco-Stain for concrete floors is a penetrating concrete stain which gives much more control over the design and colors you may want to apply to your project. Giving you more control isn’t the only benefit, though. Since it is a water-based solution, there is no need for any neutralization or clean-up! As soon as the product has been down long enough to be dry to the touch, you’re ready to seal! No in-between steps to slow you and your crew down!
On top of these wonderful benefits over other manufacturers, we’ve made sure that the pigments used in Eco-Stain are UV-Stable, so as long as a sealer is applied; the colors will not fade or yellow when subjected to sunlight. And since we made the pigments so stable, we thought it would also be a good idea to give you more of them. The Eco-Stain standard color chart houses 29 vibrant stock colors to choose from, and these colors can be mixed and matched to your content to achieve a literally limitless color palette including white stain.
Where can I use it? Unlike concrete acid stain, Eco-Stain is an extremely versatile product, and as such, it can be applied in a nearly unlimited range of substrates and locations. Many will use our water-based eco-stain to add more depth of color to a freshly poured or stamped and textured slab or on fresh concrete overlays. Its uses aren’t limited to just new concrete, though. An old slab that, at one time, may have had vibrant color can be revived using our Eco-Stain product along with a fresh coat of sealer. This stain can even be used to color precast concrete countertops and sinks, as well as architectural or sculptural cast cement. Its uses are nearly limitless for exterior concrete and interior paint stains.
