Used two gallons chocolate to freshen up my 12 tear old ribbon on my driveway, sidewalk/porch. Pressure washed to prep and that was it. Applied at 4:1 ratio with stain and allowed to dry 5 hours and then reapplied 2nd gallon of stain. Waited 6 hours then applied 1st coat of solvent based satin sealer. Came back next morning and applied 2nd coat of sealer. Looks a little darker than I thought but overall looks much better. Will see how it holds up after a few years! Nice product.
Easy to apply. Applied the stain overexisting stamped and stained concrete driveway accent. It did not appear to enhance or color the concrete. However, once i applied the sealer the color popped and dried to an attractive antiqued finish that looks better than the original finish.
Excellent experience. Fast delivery
Correct color and delivered on time.
Great product. Easy to apply. Worked great.
Very easy to use. Dries fast. Be patient because it looks very dry until you seal it, then it comes to life! Our stamped concrete looked very orange and faded, so we wanted to "brown it down". We used Café Royal and gave the edges 2 coats to darken it more. My husband and I did it ourselves and it sure made us proud! We look like pro's!!!
worked as promised best concrete stain on the market. Finally a product that delivers on the promises they make. I bought a gallon to try and will be back for more and that's a promise.
Received the products very fast. Used the antiquing stain and the solvent based satin sealer to renew our patio and it looks great. Hoping it lasts this is the first time I have used this product.

    ·         Shake Antiquing Stain bottle thoroughly 

    ·         Pour the stain directly into a pump sprayer

    ·         Continue to shake periodically during application to ensure particulate does not settle at the bottom

    ·         Important: Test the color first, using a small corner area of your concrete slab

    ·         Tip: Wear chemical resistant Spiked Shoes to prevent foot prints

    Click/Tap each question to hide/show the answers.

    When I applied my antiquing stain, why am I not seeing a difference in color?

    The pigments in antiquing stain nest down into the concrete pores so it appears as if there is very little or no color change Once you apply our acrylic solvent-based sealer, you will see a dramatic difference in color.

    I ordered a trial kit and we found the color we are going with. Can I stain yet this Fall and seal in the spring? No way will we meet the temp spec for sealing this year.

    For Antiquing stain there is no way to apply it without then sealing it because its just pigments in a dispersion solvent and once its dry the pigments will be taken away by wind, rain, traffic. It would be best to just wait for the whole project to come together.

    Is antiquing concrete stain permanent?

    No, Antiquing Concrete Stain is a topical colorant. As the product is applied, the pigments will nest into the concrete pores, the solvent-based liquid will off-gas and dry, and then a sealer will need to be applied to keep the colorant on the surface.

    How long does the antiquing stain need to dry before applying sealer?

    For exterior concrete, allow 6-8 hours for antiquing stain to dry and off-gas before applying acrylic solvent-based sealer.

    What should I use for cleanup of antiquing stain?

    Odorless mineral spirits should be used for the cleanup of antiquing stain.

    I am using the antiquing concrete stain in my garage. prepped/ sprayed the stain but it has left a heavy dust on the surface after over 12 hours. Is this normal?

    The Antiquing Stain by itself is only a pigment based topical colorant and needs a sealer otherwise the color will just wash/erode away.
