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."

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