There are two different types of products used for stained concrete; each one coloring concrete differently, and resulting in separate looks and finishes. These stains are referred to as reactive and non-reactive, and each can result in the most beautiful and impressive concrete finishes you’ve ever seen!
Reactive stains are acid-based and retain metallic salts that cause it to react chemically to the lime content found in concrete. This results in multi-colored translucent tones and remarkable marbling effects. The stain forms a permanent bond that won’t chip or peel away! Non-reactive stains are newer to the industry and work differently than reactive stains; but they still manage to render the same phenomenal results. They are water-based acrylics that don’t require a chemical reaction to augment color or tone. Instead, they work similarly to paint by simply depositing their pigment particles in the pores of concrete.
