Best Sealer for Colored Concrete

While concretes natural gray exterior can leave something to be desired for the eye wanting a wider aesthetic appeal, its structural benefits and natural strength and longevity cannot be ignored or overlooked. However, new breakthroughs in technology and engineering have led to a number of different options for coloring your concrete.

Foremost among these options are water-based concrete stains. While acid stains have traditionally been the most popular choice, they offer only limited strains of color choices, mostly being neutral colors. Concrete stains, on the other hand, come in blues, yellows, and reds. The can also be mixed together to create an incredibly wide variety of colors from all over the color wheel.

The flexibility of concrete stains have made them a choice that continues to grow in popularity. They are a penetrating type of sealer whose particles of coloring will penetrate past the surface of the concrete. As such, they are long-lasting and strong, able to withstand a number of elemental and environmental damages. They are also extremely easy to apply and clean up, as the solution penetrates past the surface, leaving very little to be sopped up afterwards.

The Hydro-Stain 1500 is a high performance nanotechnology driven water based concrete stain system. This unique formula is a safe alternative to acid based stains containing no hazardous components while producing the same mottled look as acid stains when used to decorate concrete. There is no neutralizing or rinsing required when using the Hydro-Stain 1500. This product can be used on overlay systems, concrete or decorative concrete.

Popular color choices include black, amber, gray, rust, mahogany and molasses.
