Use water-based stains on cementitious surfaces including stamped concrete, concrete overlays, and some natural rock or masonry. Dilute, mix, and shade stains for a variety of unique coloring effects. With no acid or reactive chemicals, water-based stains are easy, safe, and predictable to use.

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. Water- or acetone-diluted Pro-Dye Plus is sprayed onto porous concrete where it readily penetrates to create durable, quick-drying color with minimal residue.
