Active Elements – Concrete Acid Stain is a single component solution of acidic metallic ion particles which, when applied to concrete, chemically reacts with the concrete to form oxides in the pores of the concrete. These oxides become a permanent part of the substrate to create a translucent, variegated and sometimes marbleized effect. The art of concrete acid stain is that no two slabs will ever color exactly the same.
• The texture of concrete, age and dilution ratio affect final color appearance.
• The translucence of concrete acid stain also allows the many unique characteristics of the slab to show through. Every project is a unique piece of art.
• Sealers and concrete condition will dramatically affect the final outcome of concrete acid stains. Conduct a test on your slab prior to application.
• The samples displayed are a representation only and do not guarantee the final color to be an exact match.
