    What is Chemstain:
    LITHOCHROME Chemstain is a ready-to-use, penetrating, reactive stain that chemically combines with cured concrete to produce permanent, variegated or translucent color effects. Chemstain contains no VOC's and meets strict air quality management regulations.

    Where to use Chemstain:
    LITHOCHROME Chemstain is ideal for exterior hardscapes, interior 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.

    How to apply Chemstain:
    LITHOCHROME Chemstain is normally brush or spray applied and scrubbed into the concrete surface. Other types of acid-resistant equipment, such as sponges, sponge floats, lambswool applicators, or spray bottles may be used to create special effects. Refer to full application instructions in the Chemstain Technical Data Bulletin.

    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 Scofield's Chemstain in both inside and outside 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."

    Seasoned professionals know that the right sprayer is vital to the success of any concrete stain job. Scofield recommends the SP Systems 20ACID Sprayer for use with LITHOCHROME Chemstain Classic.

    For best results on worn or weathered concrete, LITHOCHROME® Chemstain® Enhancer should be used. Chemstain Enhancer replaces some of the chemicals in concrete that are lost due to weathering, and helps facilitate a more efficient chemical stain reaction. LITHOCHROME Chemstain Classic should be sealed with a compatible Scofield Sealer.
