Product Description

Concrete Acid Stain is a water-based liquid bearing minerals and acid. The acid stain penetrates the pores of the concrete forcing a chemical reaction between the muriatic acid and the available lime in the surface. Once acid stained, the color of the concrete is permanently altered. When sealed with an appropriate concrete sealer and for indoor applications, acid stain produces a unique, variegated finish. For the best coverage with concrete acid stain in large or small projects, use our Pump Up Acid Stain Sprayer.

Small Acid Stain Sample Kit


For testing and small project, try our Small Concrete Acid Stain Sample Kit which includes 4 oz. of all 10 stains and a sample of DCI Water Based Concrete Sealer. For larger projects, select our Large Concrete Acid Stain Kit. Each kit includes 10 quart size containers.

DIY Concrete Acid Stain Kit


Direct Colors’ DIY Concrete Acid Stain Kit for Homeowners has everything you need for a 200 sq. ft. concrete acid stain project. For something slighter larger, each Concrete Acid Stain Add-On Kit will clean, stain and seal an additional 200 sq. ft. per add-on kit.

When applying multiple concrete acid stain colors, always use acid resistant shoes to avoid leaving shoe impressions in wet, active stain. Remember if your floor is machine troweled and potentially too smooth to acid stain, add one gallon of Hard Trowel Floor Prep for every 400 sq. ft. of concrete to open the pores for a more robust reaction.

Keep in mind that it is your responsibility, as the stain applicator, to make sure the slab is ready to accept the stain, whether you poured the concrete or not. Take the time to look at the batch tickets to see what’s in the concrete mix, and always do a sample prior to stain installation to ensure that the color is correct.
