irect Colors Concrete Acid Stains are composed of a unique concentrated formulation of blended metallic salts in an acidic water-based solution. These metallic salts penetrate and react with the minerals in the concrete to deposit the colors into the concrete pores. Each color is composed of a complex proprietary formulation that contains no pigments or resins. When highlighted with the proper sealer, this effect provides a natural and attractive glow that will not chip off.
