Unlike acid staining, this is a water-based stain that is non-reactive with the concrete. With concrete stain you actually have control over the color that you will wind up with at the end of the project. You can take the guess work out!
With acid stain, it is a reactive type stain which means that it actually creates a chemical reaction with the concrete. While the effect is gorgeous, the outcome is unique and unknown from the onset of the project.
Denver Concrete Inc proudly uses Westcoat Water-Based Stain. The colors vary from stain system to stain system. Here we include color charts for the Fast Stain System as well was the Water-Based Stain. Below you can see the water-based stain SC-35 color chart. So there are definitely a variety of colors available. Multiple colors create more variance in final look.
Interior Stained Concrete
Denver Concrete's interior stained concrete process is affordable and attractive. Our interior application is a three part system wherein our crew begins by cleaning the concrete by grinding the surface lightly. After cleaning the concrete floor, the acetone dye is applied, then a sealant is applied to the stained concrete. There are different options for the sealer from a polyurethane sealer to a semi-gloss polyurethane sealer.
This is our "fast stain" concrete service and is the perfect application for interior basement floors, garage floors, office spaces, retail stores and showrooms. The product is durable and is more permeable than a micro topping.
Concrete stain systems like this have very low continued maintenance. This "fast stain" concrete stain needs maintenance 2-4 years depending on traffic.
Exterior Stained Concrete
For exterior stained concrete applications, Denver Concrete uses a semi-transparent decorative concrete stain. Unlike the interior concrete stain, this exterior stain allows for deeper penetration into the concrete substrate. The application is similar to our interior concrete staining process.
After the concrete substrate is throughly cleaned, the concrete stain is applied. Once the initial stain has cured a sealant is applied for the final finish. Sealants come in a variety of finishes from high gloss to a semi gloss. For exterior applications skid resistance for traction is required. This is added to the final coat of sealer applied.
