New Type Flooring — Stained Polished Concrete
Aug 25 , 2021

A colored stain is the most popular enhancement application for already existing polished concrete floors. It is one way to add color and provide a remarkably fresh look and smooth surface. Stained surfaces are striking in appearance and add an artistic approach to flooring. They create variegated, translucent, and uneven color effects that are beautiful. Using stain offers an opulent, rich color that can't be accomplished through other means. Staining permeates the concrete to infuse it with translucent and luminous tones, unlike a solid layer of opaque paint. The colors vary depending on the application techniques used and the surfaces they are applied to. The results can look like everything from stained wood to natural stone to polished marble or even tanned leather.

There are two types of concrete stains: acid-based chemical and water-based acrylic. Both kinds can be applied to old, new, plain, or previously colored concrete floors. Stains are highly effective for revitalizing lackluster or dull floors because they penetrate the surface. Most have excellent wear resistance and UV stability to be applied to either exteriors or interiors.

Acid stains work by penetrating the surface and reacting chemically with the calcium hydroxide in concrete. It becomes a permanent part of the concrete and won't peel, chip, or fade. However, the color palette for acid-based stains is mainly limited to earth tones – blue-green, terra cotta, brown, and tan. Water-based stain has a broader choice of hues beyond the more subdued palette of acid-based. There are dozens of colors, including black, white, and even metallic. It also penetrates the concrete to produce permanent color, ranging from translucent to more opaque.
