H&C® Semi Transparent Decorative Stains are concrete water-based stains that are eco-friendly and an easy way of achieving the look of acid staining without the intensive labor. H&C® Semi Transparent Decorative Stains are water-based stains that penetrate the concrete for a faux, layered look. These stains are DIY-friendly yet yield a professional looking finish.
H&C® Semi Transparent Decorative Stains are a great alternative to acid staining. These stains are water-based with no VOC’s, no harmful chemicals or acids. There is no need to neutralize after the stain has penetrated the surface. Colors reach full potential almost immediately upon application. Numerous coatings can be applied with no wait time. This saves time and allows the colors to be built up quickly and easily.
These stains can be used inside or outside with a solvent-based or water-based sealer over the stain. This will make the stain more vibrant and should be considered when choosing a color potential.
