Water-Based Concrete Stains

Aquacolor | water based stain for concrete surfaces (integral & topical)

Aquacolor is a concentrated, ready-to-use, highly-micronized inorganic pigment blended to integrally colour or stain decorative concrete overlays, micro-toppings, skim coats or regular concrete surfaces. It is formulated as a dual-use product...integral colour and an alternative to reactive concrete stains (acid stains).

Integral Colour: When using Aquacolor as an integral colour, shake well and always disperse in the polymer additive (Cp1000) prior to adding in cementitious powder (Sgraffino). Squirt desired amount into a small measuring cup to ensure consistent results. The typical dosage is 10ml (0.35oz) of Aquacolor for every pail of Sgraffino.

Water based Stain: When Aquacolor is used as a stain, dilute and mix it with water prior to spraying.
Suggested starting mix-ratio: 4gal water per 8oz bottle of Aquacolor; to increase the colour value, reduce the amount of water and vice versa. For better adhesion to the substrates, it is recommended to blend the Aquacolor solution with 10% acrylic polymer (Cp1000).
