Concrete acid stain is true to new or old, plain or colored concrete surfaces. They are available in 10 basic colors. Whilst they are often called acid stains, acid isn't the ingredient that colors the concrete. Metallic salts in a acidic, water based solution interact with the concrete to permanently hue of the surface. Siliceous aggregates such as gravel or sand, usually do not react with the stain. Surfaces containing an increased content of cement will react more than one with less cement yielding more serious colors. _stained_concrete_

Since each surface differs from the others, results may vary in one surface to another. We always recommend testing a tiny area to determine how a final result will appear. Observe that the final color will not be apparent until the sealer has been applied. With wood stain you'll probably still see the grain with the wood through the stain, acid stain is extremely similar to wood stain as we discussed all defects or finishing marks through it.

Factors that may affect the final results include:

 Cement properties and amount used, Admixtures and kind of aggregate used.
 Concrete finishing methods, concrete age, and moisture content
 Porosity and Texture of the surface
 Weather conditions once the stain is applied
 Efflorescence. _stained_concrete_
