LITHOCHROME® Tintura™ Stain

What is Chemstain:
LITHOCHROME Chemstain is a ready-to-use, penetrating, reactive concrete stain that chemically combines with cured concrete to produce permanent, variegated or translucent color effects. Chemstain contains no VOC's and meets stringent air quality management regulations. Chemstain has repeatedly been selected as the #1 ranked brand of concrete acid stain by concrete contractors.

Where to use Chemstain:
LITHOCHROME Chemstain is ideal for exterior concrete hardscapes, interior concrete floors, or artificial rock and water features. Chemstain produces concrete floors and hardscapes that are one-of-a-kind and permanent, with a distinct weathered appearance. Chemstain colors and enhances, but will not hide the unique surface blemishes in the concrete.

What do customers say about Chemstain:
"Every LITHOCHROME Chemstain floor I've done is a "work of art"! Chemstain truly takes on the personality of the concrete and provides a beautiful concrete surface.

I've used Chemstain in both interior and exterior applications with long-lasting results. The colors can be used to create beautiful patterns and designs, or I can simply use a single color, from which you get many shades to enhance the other textures of the project.

For me, the beauty of Chemstain is that it becomes part of the concrete. A simple re-seal will usually bring it right back to its original beauty even after years of wear. I love Chemstain and continue to "love to go to work" because of the lasting impression I am able to create for my customers."

-- Victoria Collins, Capitol Decorative Concrete

For best results on worn or weathered concrete, LITHOCHROME® Chemstain® Enhancer should be used.

Scofield recommends using a quality sprayer to apply Chemstain.

Custom-matched colors are also available. Tintura is available in all colors depicted on Scofield color charts.

Examples shown represent three coats of LITHOCHROME® Tintura™ water-based stain applied over uncolored, medium gray concrete, then sealed with two coats of SCOFIELD® Selectseal-W™. The concrete color effects produced may differ significantly from that shown on the color chart. A representative test section should be prepared for each individual concrete surface prior to general application.

Please note: concrete colors shown are approximate. Due to shade variations associated with individual color monitors and printers, we suggest utilization of our literature request form to review an actual LITHOCHROME® Tintura™ Color Chart. We strongly recommend that a concrete test slab be poured and approved prior to starting the job. Concrete test slabs should be poured replicating jobsite conditions.
