TRADITIONAL DECORATIVE ACID STAIN
Classic Traditional Decorative Acid Stain is a single component coloring solution of acidic metallic ion particles. When placed on a cementitious surface, it allows the metallic ions and the particles in the cement (free alkali) to form oxides. These oxides become a permanent part of the substrate and will not crack or peel. The resulting effect creates a colored, variegated and some times marbleized effect. Considerable variations in color and tone normally result from the use of Classic Acid Stain. Many special color effects may be achieved using different application techniques. Acid stains may give you unique looks and visual characteristics that cannot be achieved by using conventional polymer or pigment type stains. This is due to the acid reacting individually with each substrate depending on the cement’s content, age, porosity and the manner in which hydration takes place. These variables are the reason for its inherent beauty. New concrete must cure for 28 days before stain is applied. Available in 1 gal. jugs, 5 gal. pails and 55 gal. drums.
FX NANO SEMI-TRANSPARENT DECORATIVE STAIN
Classic FX Nano Semi-Transparent Decorative Stain is a great alternative to acid staining. Since no chemical reaction is taking place, there is no extended waiting time for color penetration and not need to neutralize. The penetrative reaction of the stain preserves and protects against wear and exposure when sealed. Multiple colors can be used for more interesting images. This advanced formula allows color to reach full potential almost immediately upon application. Color may be built up without the worry of damaging of the concrete as with acid stain. Numerous coats can be applied instantly so there is no need to apply them with an extended period of time. All colors may be used on interior and exterior surfaces in a wide range of environments. Apply Classic Coatings Systems Sealer over the stain to make it pop and become more vibrant. It is highly recommended to test a sample area first. New concrete must cure for 28 days before stain is applied. Available in 1 gal. jugs, 5 gal. pails and 55 gal. drums.
