Acid Stained Concrete

Acid Stain: Our Solution to a Tricky Problem

About Acid Stain
Acid Stain is a method to add color to concrete floors that utilizes a chemical reaction with the metallic salts and lime in the concrete. The permanent color provided by acid stain is actually created due to this chemical reaction with these salts and lime.

The Acid Stain Challenge

The challenge with this acid stain process lies within the concrete. Concrete frequently contains a lot of irregularity and unpredictability. Some additives in the concrete mix do not react with these salts. This can result in a chemically acid stained floor that can sometimes look downright awful.
