Acid staining is a classic decorative concrete technique that dates back over a century. Using a chemical reaction between metallic salts and free lime in the concrete, acid stains create unique designs that cannot be duplicated by other materials. For eye-catching, yet subtly earthy tones, look no further than acid stained concrete.
E-Stain is a non-acid reactive stain that can be used to color concrete, some masonry surfaces, and cementitious overlays such as Brickform Micro-Topping, SM Professional Grade, and Stampable Overlay. By chemically reacting with cementitious materials, E-Stain produces deep, varied and mottled color that cannot be replicated.

Pro-Dye Plus creates vivid translucent color on existing concrete surfaces.

Ideally suited for interior polished concrete applications. Pro-Dye Plus is also well suited for touch-up where acid stain fails to react
Recolor and restore concrete with Brickform Refresh. Brickform Refresh is a solvent based penetrating, polysiloxane stain with excellent water repellency to be used for re-coloring and sealing exterior concrete surfaces. Brickform Refresh is ideal for converting colored concrete, or concrete with surface discolorations into a semi-opaque, consistent, natural looking colored surface . The polysiloxane chemistry penetrates into the concrete surface preventing moisture intrusion and providing weather protection.
FreestylePro is an opaque water-based stain that penetrates and bonds with the surface of concrete. Use it to rapidly rejuvenate textured and stamped concrete. Along with the corresponding antiquing agent - FreestylePro Highlighter - FreestylePro is self-sealing and easily applied.
