Product Details

This trial kit includes 3 color choices (4 ounces each), 1 choice of satin or gloss 4-ounce sealer, and 4 foam applicators.

With the Stain Trial Kit, you can confidently choose the right color for your project, knowing that it will provide vibrant, long-lasting color and a beautiful mottled, marble-like finish similar to that of acid stains. The low VOC formulation of the ColorWave® Stain makes it environmentally friendly and safe for use in any space. Try out the ColorWave® Stain Trial Kit and see the transformative power of this water-based concrete stain for yourself.


Quick Facts

  • Application Tool: Pump sprayer, mop, stain/paint roller
  • Dry Time: 24 hours
  • Cleanup: ProClean Degreaser™ and warm water
  • Coverage: Approximately 6 sq. ft. per 4-ounce bottles depending on concrete porosity
  • Recommended Uses: Concrete surfaces
  • Trial Kits are non-returnable & non-refundable

Using the ColorWave® Trial Kit is easy! Follow these steps to test out different color options on your surfaces:

  1. Prepare your concrete surface by sweeping away any debris and cleaning with an organic degreaser. Rinse thoroughly and allow the surface to dry completely.
  2. Put on your dust mask, goggles, and safety gloves. Choose one or more of the included ColorWave® Stain colors.
  3. Use the foam applicator brush to apply the stain to the concrete surface, layering until a wet consistency is achieved. Allow the stain to dry for 6-8 hours.
  4. Once the stain has dried, it is time to apply the sealer. Choose between the satin or gloss finish and use the foam applicator brush to apply the sealer in thin layers. Two coats are recommended for maximum protection.
  5. Allow the sealer to dry for up to 24 hours before using the surface.
Note: It is important to apply the included sealer after using the ColorWave® Stain, as it is necessary to see the true final color of the stain. Without sealing the surface, the color may appear differently than it will after the sealer is applied. Be sure to follow the included instructions for applying the sealer in order to achieve the best results.

How-To Guide

Printable ColorWave® How-To Guide

Step 1: Preparation

  • Cover areas at risk of over-spray with plastic drop cloth.
  • Newly poured concrete must cure for 30 days before application.
  • For existing concrete:
    • Remove paint or previously applied sealer using Soy Gel Stripper.
    • Remove carpet glue or other adhesives using Bean-E-Doo® Mastic Remover.
    • Remove any oils, dirt, debris, Soy Gel Stripper, or Bean-E-Doo® Mastic Remover using scrub brush and ProClean Degreaser™.
  • Verify absorption by pouring a cup of water in various areas. If not absorbed within five minutes, etch the surface with CitrusEtch™, then neutralize surface with ProClean Neutralizer™ and rinse thoroughly.
  • Allow the concrete to thoroughly dry before application.

Step 2: Application

Coverage rate is approximately 200 square feet per gallon. Coverage rates may vary based on concrete texture, surface porosity, and application method.

NOTE: Only apply ColorWave® Water-Based Concrete Stain when surface temperature is between 40 °F (4 °C) and 95 °F (35 °C).

Caution: May be harmful if swallowed or ingested. Contact with skin can cause mild irritation. Avoid contact with eyes.

Spraying:

  • Remove all filters from pump-up sprayer.
  • Shake ColorWave® well before pouring into sprayer.
  • Begin spraying at a far corner to maintain a clear path to exit.
  • Spray ColorWave® on surface in slightly circular motions with irregular overlaps.
    • Shake sprayer tank from side to side often to prevent color from settling.
    • Spray thin coats to avoid puddling.
  • To develop deeper color, apply additional coats using the same method (maximum of four thin coats).
    • Allow eight hours between coats.
    • Dry for at least eight hours before applying a sealer.

Step 3: Seal & Protect Finish

  • Apply two thin coats of sealer with AcquaSeal™ or EasySeal™.
    • For interior only: Also apply two thin coats of ProWax Polish™.
  • For additional application instructions, see AcquaSeal™, EasySeal™, and ProWax Polish™ How-To Guides.

  • Multiple colors may be creatively layered or blended.

Cleanup:

  • Clean tools and supplies with ProClean Degreaser™ and warm water.

Maintenance:

  • For exterior: Protect finish every two years as needed with AcquaSeal™ or EasySeal™.
  • For interior: Protect finish every two years with ProWax Polish™ or spot treat high-traffic areas as needed.
  • For additional application instructions, see AcquaSeal™, EasySeal™, and ProWax Polish™ How-To Guides.
