Acid-stain colouring from Global Concrete Solutions gives customers the power to enhance concrete surfaces with unlimited colours and boundless character.

The highest concentration of colouring salts in this process provides rich, deep colours, which impart a dazzling range of hues and undertones.

The reaction of the acid with the available free lime in the surface of the concrete results in a wide range of unique looks and visual character ideally suited to the following applications:

  • Residential flooring
  • Restaurants, bars and food service areas
  • Hotels and Casinos
  • Retail stores and malls
  • Art studios, theatres and museums
  • Offices and lobbies
  • Family fun centres and amusement parks
  • Pool decks, patios and walkways
  • Automobile showrooms
  • Walls and countertops
  • Landscaping and faux rockscapes.

Depending on the preparation, many special colour effects can be achieved as the salts react and are absorbed into the porous surface. The result is a translucent variegated and sometimes marbleized effect that will not crack or peel.

Specifying a portland or Type GP cement to be used in the concrete mix will increase the calcium hydroxide available.
