Q. What is acid-staining about?

A. Acid stains are chemical stains applied to concrete surfaces that react directly with the concrete to create an aesthetically rich & variegated finish that will not peel, crack, chip, or fade.


Q. Do Concrete Countertops Stain?

A. Yes: Acids in items such as red wine, lemon juice and vinegar can actually etch the surface of concrete. The type of sealer used will influence the resistance to stains. However, over time a patina will develop that enhances the appearance of the surface, similar to other natural surfaces. The best way to reduce staining is to clean the spill soon after it occurs.
