Acid Stain Concrete Coating InformationAfter living at the same property for a number of years, you may notice your concrete floors have degraded, causing them to look shabby and your home to appear dated and old. The same is true with retail, restaurant, and other commercial spaces, where high foot traffic damages the floor over time. An acid stain concrete coating transforms living and work surfaces into beautiful works of art, invigorating your entire surroundings.
Reactive & Non-reactive Concrete StainsYou have two options for concrete stains: reactive and nonreactive. Reactive stains are more commonly known as acid stains; nonreactive stains are dyes. Your choice depends on your desired result.
- Acid stains are water-based, acidic solutions that contain metallic salts. These salts react with the concrete’s lime content, creating natural effects, including color variations and mottling such as you see in granite and marble. Color changes are limited to soft earth tones, including browns, tans, soft blue-greens, and terra cotta.
- Dyes are also water-based, but these acrylic solutions produce no chemical reaction with the concrete. Dyes offer more striking color options, which may also be mixed and blended to create a full palette unavailable with acid stains.
Benefits of Acid Stained ConcreteTo enhance commercial or residential concrete floors, staining is the most popular option thanks to high versatility that lets you achieve whatever look best matches your design and tastes. Concrete staining allows you to add bold design accents, custom graphics, or subtle hints of color. You can choose a single hue or go for a varied color design. Acid staining in particular adds character to the area by infusing the concrete surface with rich, deep, translucent colors. The look is distinct and unique, as no two acid-stained surfaces look the same. This is because the surface itself helps determine the final look, including its age, the concrete composition and porosity, texture, and even environmental factors.
Acid Stain Preparation & ApplicationAcid staining is a two-day process. On day one, we prep the floor and then spray acid onto the surface. Once we achieve the desired color, we neutralize the acid by applying ammonia. On day two, we protect your new flooring with a coat of either clear polyurethane or solvent sealer.
