Re-Ax stains are unique, metallic, salt-based formulations that are non-acidic, and work by reacting with various components in and on the concrete surface. They produce a widely varied, mottled surface that is permanent, so it cannot be wiped off or removed like a water-based stain. The effects are similar to that of an acid stain but without the extensive cleanup of that process. Simply spray or brush on the Re-Ax, work it in with a broom (optional), wait a few hours for the color change, and then seal it up. You could not have an easier process and there's NO NEED TO NEUTRALIZE LIKE ACID STAINS.
Re-Ax leaves the ultimate natural color with the most mottling and variation of any stain. They are great for creating a Faux Stone appearence on our modular pre-cast panels or any stamped concrete project as the puddling in low spots will create very realistic variations.
See below forcolor chart and a video demonstration of the stains on the modular pre-cast panels. For more general effects, such as on prepped floors and stamped concrete, you can apply in the same way you would with traditional acid stains. Since all colors start out purple, the final color is not realized until the stain has fully dried.FOR THIS REASON, MAKING SAMPLES AND TESTING COLORS IS CRUCIAL. COLORS ARE PERMANENT.
