Diamond Concrete Polishing - Colors We Use
Eco-friendly Sustainable Concrete Stains
Concrete stains can be acid based, water based, and plant/soy based. Recently, the water and plant /soy based stains have received more popularity because of the Eco-friendly movement. These stains are considered more eco-friendly and sustainable, and can often mimic acid stains looks, while being safer to use and safer for the building occupants. Here are a few reasons we have added water and plant/soy based stains to our portfolio:
- Acid stain is considered a hazardous material
- Acid stain must be thoroughly rinsed and neutralized or it may weaken and deteriorate concrete.
- The fumes generated when acid staining are extremely hazardous, toxic, and dangerous to humans, animals, and the environment.
- Metals contained within acid stains are considered a hazardous material by the EPA and must not get into the water stream.
