  7. 7. The acid stain is a mixture of hydrochloric acid, water, and acid-soluble metallic salts which penetrate the concrete’s surface. <br />www.DecorativeConcreteResurfacing.com<br />(636)256.6733<br />
  8. 8. Since the concrete surface contains hydrated lime, it reacts with the acid stain and creates a permanent reaction that doesn’t fade or chip as time passes. Acid stain is referred to as a reactive stain because it requires the chemicals in the concrete to “react” and allow the depositing of color into the pores. <br />www.DecorativeConcreteResurfacing.com<br />(636)256.6733<br />
  9. 9. Since the stain is reacting to what is present in the concrete, a wide range of colors may result even when only one color has been chosen. The chemicals in the concrete determine the degree of color variation for each application. <br />www.DecorativeConcreteResurfacing.com<br />(636)256.6733<br />
  10. 10. If a consistent finish is desired it might be better to use a combination of solid color stains. The subtle tones available in acid stains include reds, browns, blacks, oranges, light greens, blues and even tans.<br />www.DecorativeConcreteResurfacing.com<br />(636)256.6733<br />
  11. 11. Acid stain can be done on interior concrete floors as well as exterior concrete by an individual or by a professional. When this process is done by an individual, it is imperative to have the correct tools and safety equipment to avoid leaving marks or streaks and to insure your safety. To avoid this risk with larger slabs and surfaces that need a lot of preparation, one should hire a professional.<br />www.DecorativeConcreteResurfacing.com<br />(636)256.6733<br />
  12. 12. After the concrete stain has been finished, it is important to continue to care for the concrete. It is a permanent process, but the permanence only penetrates the initial layer of concrete leaving it prone to wear from traffic or weather.<br />www.DecorativeConcreteResurfacing.com<br />(636)256.6733<br />
  13. 13. To enhance the intensity of the concrete stain, sealers and sheen can be applied to exterior and interior surfaces. Exterior surfaces, that don’t have a brush broom finish should have an “anti-slip” particulate added to the sealer.<br />www.DecorativeConcreteResurfacing.com<br />(636)256.6733<br />
  14. 14. Exterior surfaces can be maintained through sweeping or rinsing stubborn areas. For interior surfaces, it should be dry mopped with an occasional wet mopping. Wax can be applied on interior surfaces to enhance the shine and give the floor extra protection. <br />www.DecorativeConcreteResurfacing.com<br />(636)256.6733<br />
