Once this was done, the sandblasting was done, followed by blowing debris from the surface. Stain was applied, then the last step was sealing the surface with clear SurfKoat Acrylic sealer, to prevent bleeding of the colors. We were honored to be able to feature this beautiful project for our business.
With so many color options to choose from, you will surely be satisfied with the end result. Stained concrete typically has two categories: acid-based chemical stain, and water-based acrylics. Acid stains are made up of hydrochloric acid and acid-soluble metallic salts. These components work together, penetrating the surface and reacting chemically with calcium hydroxide in concrete. Acid stain will etch the surface lightly, which lets the salts enter more easily. When the stain reacts, it is permanent to the concrete. It won’t fade, peel or chip. Earth tones such as browns, soft blue-greens and tans are the usual palette for acid stains.
