Concrete dyes come in an endless variety of colors. When using dyes you are not limited by a predetermined color palette. They can be mixed to produce bright, vibrant colors such as yellows and blues or can be diluted or blended with other colors to produce subtle earth tones or soft pastels.
Dyes can be used in multiple coats at a greater strength for a more solid color or diluted down to create more of a washed effect.
This versatility allows for a greater range of colors that traditional acid stains provide.
Water based stains are a mixture of fine pigments, acrylics, and plasticizers.
Concrete dyes are very easy to clean and offer a wide range of color choices.
Concrete dyes can be used to repair concrete that will no stain or to camouflage troubled spots.
Unlike acid stains, dyes do not react chemically with cement-based materials. Instead, they contain very fine pigments that penetrate into the concrete surface. This allows for little down time and quicker applications on most jobs.
Concrete dyes, tints, or washes are gaining popularity in the word of architectural concrete as an alternative to acid stained floors.
Solvent-based or alcohol based dyes can be used to achieve brighter, more vibrant colors and increase the palette range as compared to the more limited options of earth tone hues found in traditional acid stains. Most dyes are packaged in concentrated form, allowing more flexibility to achieve the desired look. Dyes can be used full strength to attain greater depth of color or, dilute with water or solvents to produce paler shades or a lighter, more translucent color wash.
