Stains and Dyes

Concrete stains and dyes are one of many coloring options for concrete. They are surface applied and penetrate the surface of the concrete to varying degrees. Some, called acid stains or reactive stains, chemically react with the concrete to form color, permanently coloring the surface layers of the concrete. Others, typically water-based stains and dyes, penetrate through the pores of the concrete. Stains and dyes can be used to color large areas, to achieve numerous effects, and in high detail applications such as stenciling. Whatever your application, there is likely a stain or dye for it.
