There are two categories of concrete stains – reactive (acid based) and nonreactive (water based). Reactive stains are acidic solutions containing metallic salts that react with the concrete’s lime content. Once the chemical reaction takes place, the stain forms a permanent bond with the concrete and won’t chip away.
What are Concrete Stains?
Nonreactive stains are water based stains that don’t rely on a chemical reaction to impart color. Instead they are formulated to penetrate the concrete and impart their pigment into the open pores.
