LITHOCHROME Chemstain Classic

A chemically reactive stain that etches and permanently colors cementitious surfaces with color effects that are variegated and natural looking.

LITHOCHROME Chemstain Classic is a chemically reactive stain that etches and permanently colors cementitious surfaces with color effects that are variegated, mottled, and natural looking. Application requires a complex multistep process and should only be attempted by experienced contractors and artisans. LITHOCHROME Chemstain Classic can be left uncoated to simulate natural stone, or sealed with a polymeric topcoat to develop dramatic increases in color depth and intensity.

The longevity of chemically stained concrete is superior in color durability and abrasion resistance to that of concrete surfaces coated with acrylic paints or stains. They do not weather off quickly or delaminate. Their chemical reaction to the concrete allows pigments to become embedded as part of the surface. They will not fade, chip, crack, or peel.
