Stained concrete style can be applied by using concrete staining tints, dyes and sealers. Tints and dyes are applied to concrete areas that are difficult to produce successful stain results. Dyes are capable of producing intense tone colors. Some of them are also manufactured to resist ultraviolet rays. Tints and dyes offer different colors that are not readily available in other stain compounds.
Colored concrete sealers are available in epoxy, urethane and acrylic materials. Epoxy sealer provides the hardest property. Urethane sealer is expensive. It is ideal for resisting scrapes. Acrylic produces a glossy exterior surface.
