Types of Stamped Concrete Stains

water-based concrete stains, concrete dyes

Acid-Based Concrete Stains

Acid-based concrete stains work by penetrating the surface and reacting chemically with the concrete to form a permanent bond. It uses a small amount of metallic salt dissolved in hydrochloric acid that reacts to the calcium hydroxide in the concrete. After this reaction happens, the stain will become permanent and will never wash away.

Water-Based Concrete Stains

This type of stain is a mixture of color pigments, water, or acetone to create the desired color. It can be applied using conventional spraying equipment, and it leaves no chemical residue.


Water-based stain does not rely on chemical reactions resulting in a more workable variety of colors and uniformity.

Concrete Dyes

Dye particles are smaller than acid-based or acrylic-based stains. It works by filling in the concrete pores making it hard to remove. Unlike stains, concrete dyes are not UV-stable, making it more suitable for indoor concrete floors.
