HATCRETE® Tekstain is a penetrating solution of metallic salts used to colour new or existing concrete. The product reacts with the concrete to produce insoluble, abrasion resistant colour deposits which will not chip, crack or peel.
It is normal for the colour of the acid stained surface to vary slightly in shade. This will substantially enhance the appearance of ordinary grey concrete. To obtain an aged or antiqued appearance or to emulate the subtle colour variations which occur in stone, different coloured concrete stains can be applied to the same surface by running one on top of another.
We would typically apply two coats of stain, followed by a sealer on a subsequent visit.
