ACID STAIN - Surface Coating System

Create amazing rich finishes with Westcoat Acid Stain. Made from an acid solution, wetting agents, and metallic ions, Acid Stain penetrates and reacts with concrete and Westcoat’s cement to produce interesting, mottled colors that stand the test of time. Ideal for both interior and exterior projects, Acid Stain is the most dynamic, durable and UV resistant of the concrete stain systems.

The Acid Stain Grind & Seal System is designed to create a mottled effect on existing concrete floors with high to low gloss sealer options. The Acid Stain Grind and Seal System is a process of grinding the concrete, applying Westcoat’s acid-based stain and sealer. When it is placed on concrete it chemically combines the metallic ions with particles in the concrete to form oxides. The stain is then sealed for protection.
