Concrete Oven Color Options

Concrete pizza ovens are most commonly colored using either concrete pigment added to the concrete mix prior to pouring or acid stain applied after the concrete has fully cured. Both products are a UV stable and appropriate for outdoor use.

Concrete Oven Sealer

The most appropriate sealer choice for a pizza oven would the Penetrating Concrete Sealer. Because it is absorbed entirely into the pores of the concrete, it forms no membrane on the surface and is not vulnerable to melting or discoloration. Keep in mind this is a matte sealer that affords little or no gloss after application.
