Short How-To Acid Stain
- Clean the concrete surface to make sure it is free of any topical coatings, oil, grease or dirt stains. We recommend the use of: Citra Pro (for grease) or oil. The best method for prep is our Concrete DNA Satellite pads (30 or 50 grit) underneath a low speed floor buffer and Super Blue diluted 1:9 (or more) with water. This gives your concrete a clean ‘chalkboard’ finish that will accept stain and create a surface profile for the sealer. DO NOT USE Muriatic Acid it will burn your concrete and remove what the stain needs to create all of the neat reactions.
- Apply the stain by using a plastic pump sprayer and spraying the floor in a random method fully saturating the surface.
- Allow floor to dry thoroughly. Drying time will vary from floor to floor according to the surface conditions and humidity. Next wash off any remaining residue.
- Allow the stained floor to dry again and apply sealer to enrich the color and protect the surface. We recommend our Super Prime as a base coat followed by one of our WB Urethanes as a topcoat. For outside projects we recommend one of our outside sealers.
- Use EZ Clean as the periodic floor cleaning soap.
