    Acid Stain Concrete application allows you to infuse vivid, colorful tones into concrete and cement surfaces. Unlike expensive building materials, like granite and quartz, concrete provides users with an affordable way to create distinct and beautiful designs at a fraction of the cost. Acid Stain styles mimic everything from marble to natural stone and even stained wood, with results that deliver a 100% custom look every time.

    Each concrete acid stain creates uneven color effects that simulate the natural shadings and aged appearance of stone or masonry. The color effect is unique to each stained surface and cannot be duplicated with other materials.

    Direct Colors DIY Concrete Acid Stain Kit has all the tools and applicators you need for a 200 sq. ft project.

    Direct Colors Concrete Acid Stains are composed of a unique concentrated formulation of blended metallic salts in an acidic water-based solution. These metallic salts penetrate and react with the minerals in the concrete to deposit the colors into the concrete pores. Each color is composed of a complex proprietary formulation that contains no pigments or resins. When highlighted with the proper sealer, this effect provides a natural and attractive glow that will not chip off.

    What Types of Concrete Surfaces Can be Stained?

    New, old, smooth, and rough concrete can all be acid-stained. However, we recommend you carefully review the pre-application tests to accurately characterize if your slab is a good candidate for staining. Every concrete slab, countertop, and piece of décor is different; some concrete will stain better than others. Always conduct a small test area to evaluate reactivity and color development before beginning your project.

    Acid stain is a translucent product and the overall effect of the stain system leave an element of unpredictability to the final appearance of the applied stain. For acid stain color stunning color combination ideas read Direct Colors Concrete Acid Stain Color Guide.

    Testing small areas or samples prior to starting a project is always recommended since the final color may differ significantly from what is shown on the chart due to a number of factors, including, but not limited to the age of the existing slab, mix design, finishing techniques, concrete base colors and surface permeability.

    Direct Colors Concrete Acid Stains are available in 10 standard colors. Use our Acid Stain Trial Kit to test colors and our EverStain Color Guide for acid stain color combination and technique ideas.

    How Long Does Acid Stain Take To Dry?

    Different stains require varying amounts of time to activate and fully color the concrete, generally from 2 – 8 hours. Use our Acid Stain Color Activation Times Chart for details. Be sure to check the acid stain color activation time before starting a project to ensure full surface coloring. For the most color from a given stain, spray another coat over the dried residue.
