NewLook® Solid Colour Stain (for existing concrete)

NewLook® Solid Colour Stain™ is an opaque water-based, premium quality concrete colour stain used to restore [or change the colour of] previously coloured surfaces. Also to rejuvenate old, tired-looking concrete by completely covering discolorations or stains, for matching new to old concrete, and much more.

Since 1989 this non acid, non toxic concrete colour maintenance system has been refined and perfected over millions of square metres. A water based Non Acid stain that penetrates the surface of porous concrete, staining to almost any desired colour with a tenacious bond – no stripping, flaking or peeling & no solvent smells – and will even recolour dark to light. Please look at the gallery for a few examples. None of the mess associated with reactive acid etching and unlike acid, Solid Colour Stain colours are totally predictable and replicable. Logos are also easy and accurate to install as are complex patterns, borders, etc..

NewLook® Solid colour Stains offer a decorative and interesting alternative to plain grey concrete and is far more cost effective than overlays, screeds or most other finishes. It is ideal for interior floors, architectural design projects, civic buildings, shopping areas and any projects requiring a coloured, decorative floor area with hard wearing properties.

Stain or Paint my driveway ?

This question was asked by - Ron Turnbull
In April or May I want to paint or stain my driveway which looks bland. Would take 10 - 12K to replace :-(( The house was built back in 1971 and the driveway is concrete but has a rough "tamped rough finish". I hear conflicting info regarding painting or staining the concrete. Can you advise me - should I paint or stain ? There are 2 cars sitting on the driveway. Can you recommend a product of yours that would be best suited and how best to apply it.

I would forget about painting, the paint will start to wear off after a few months.

Staining on the other hand (as long as the prep is done correctly) soaks into the concrete to form a permanent bond. I would suggest using the Solid colour stain (link below) as this is the quickest and easiest way to brighten up tired looking concrete. For Prep, mixing and application please review the videos section on the site. Solid Colour Stain (SOLID) Drew Palin

Cured concrete colour

This question was asked by - Mike thomas
i want to add some colour to some outside cured concrete on a roadway in a green or brown which would be the best product

It really all depends on what you are looking for as the finished product. If you are just looking for a solid uniform colour the the best one to use would be the Solid colour stain (link below), if you are wanting a more translucent or mottled colour or to have a few colours together then the Smartcolour would be best.

Staining/dying stone.

This question was asked by - Alison McKie
Hello, I have a natural blond sandstone hearth and wanted to check which of your products would be best for colouring it.

Unfortunately the stains and dyes that we sell are designed for use on concrete surfaces and not suitable for use on natural stone.

Advice on stain colours

This question was asked by - Jon-Luke Kirton
We have a a large driveway (approx 200m2) with standard red block pavers. We would like to change the colour of these to a slate grey colour (we have a period character sandstone and traditional scottish slate house). What products would you recommend for this look to be achieved?

To completely change the colour of the paving is entirely doable, I have linked below the products you would need and if you check out the videos section you will find how to guides for the prep and the application.

Firstly you would need to remove any sealer that might be on the surface using either the Solstrip or Easystrip 1000 for acrylic sealers or the Easystrip 2000 if it is a Polyurethane sealer. Once this is done you will need to profile the surface to make it porous to accept the stain then you would apply the Solid colour stain as a base colour, then a diluted Smartcolour to give the 2 tone antiqued effect. After the stain has cured for 24 hours you will need to re apply a sealer coat.

Thompson water seal removal

This question was asked by - Simon
We’re looking for a product that we can use to remove Thompson water seal from some concrete coping stones. Were also looking for a product that can stain or coat them to be a dark grey (close to ral 7016)

It might be worth contacting Thompsons direct to see what the recommend to remove it, the only solution we have that will remove it is the Easystrip 1000

EasyStrip 1000 Coating Remover (ES1000) As for the colour the Solid colour stain in Charcoal will be the best to use. Solid Colour Stain (SOLID) Please view the videos section for advice on preparation and application. Drew Palin

Solid colour or Smartcolour

This question was asked by - Ruth Beecham
I have 170 sq metres of brand new concrete interior residential floors. The aim was to acid stain these floors. However, your products look a whole stack easier! I have watched all your videos and read all the info, but am still a little confused with product names/ranges. The effect I want are pale base colours with slightly darker 'faux' effects on top. On the colour charts, I am confused by 'solid' colours and/or Smartcolour. (2 different colour cards side by side with different products listed?) Please could you explain the differences, and also send me the colour charts? Many thanks (and also for the preparation/water test video in particular).

In simple terms the Solid colour stain is a opaque stain, this is used to give the concrete one smooth uniform colour or a uniform base colour for the mottled or faux acid effect.

The Smart colour is a semi transparent finish and is used to add the mottled effect by sprayer. Take a look at the video "staining concrete start to finish" this, I think, is what you are looking to do. Drew Palin

Will this work on block paving.

Yes they will, they are ok to use on any concrete based product, just bear in mind that the coverage will be severely reduced, by at least half.

Lightening up Imprint paving

This question was asked by - E.McKone
I have very dark almost black imprint and I hate it, can i make it lighter

Yes it is possible to make dark paving light,

First you would need to remove the sealer from the surface using the Easy strip (link below). Once this has been done you need to jet wash the surface, then, when dry apply the Eco acid solution to profile the surface to ensure it is porous enough for the stain to soak in, there is a video on the website explaining this, Next when it is dry (90% dry is fine) you can apply the Solid colour stain using the applicator brush following the instructions (included in the box and there is a video on the site). If you are happy with the colour you can stop there. If you want the 2 tone/antiqued effect of imprint concrete you can achieve this by using a darker Smartcolour diluted to 1:6 with water, all you have to do is spray an even coat all over the surface, then as it dries it will settle in the deeper areas to create the effect, as it is drying, if you think it is still to dark on the main surface, misting water over the surface will make more of the colour run off the high spots. Once it has all dried (ideally 24hrs+) you will need to seal the drive using either the WB25 or WB34. http://www.adsealcolours.co.uk/EasyStrip-1000-Coating-Remover.html http://www.adsealcolours.co.uk/Solid-Colour-Stain.html http://www.adsealcolours.co.uk/Smart-Colour-Stain.html http://www.adsealcolours.co.uk/Eco-Acid-profiler.html Drew Palin

What's the best way to make concrete slabs look new again?

This question was asked by - Emma
Hi, I have a concrete slab patio, which must be 10 years old nearly. They look pretty tired and ugly and i want to rejuvenate them by giving them a bit of colour, nothing outrageous, they are grey and want to keep them grey just brighten them up, I don't think clear sealer will do it. What would you recommend? Many thanks Emma

I would recommend using the Solid colour stain (link below) this is a quick easy way to recolour concrete.

How much colour and sealant do I need for a 30 square metre concrete drive?

This question was asked by - Peter Clifford
I would like to colour a newly laid 30 square metre concrete drive with Smart colour (Licorice). Please could you advise the amounts of prep material, colour and sealer (satin finish) required for this. Many thanks

As the concrete is new you will need to leave it a minimum of 30days before trying to stain to let the concrete cure.

Before staining you will need to acid wash the surface to remove any loose dusty surface from the concrete using the Eco acid If you are looking to apply a single solid colour to the concrete I would recommend using the Solid colour stain (medium grey) you will need 1 x 32oz kit to do your area. The solid colour stain will be much quicker, easier and cheaper than the smartcolour (you would need at least 3 x 32oz bottles to get a solid uniform colour). Then finally to seal I would suggest the WB25. I have listed all the relevant products below, I would highly recommend watching the installation videos before you start the job. http://www.adsealcolours.co.uk/Eco-Acid-profiler.html http://www.adsealcolours.co.uk/Solid-Colour-Stain.html http://www.adsealcolours.co.uk/WB-25-eco-friendly-satin-concrete-sealer.html http://www.adsealcolours.co.uk/Application-Brushes.html Drew Palin

I am looking for the correct colour concrete stain, do you have sample sizes?

This question was asked by - Jason Winslow
Hi I'm looking to enhance an area of concrete and was wondering if you might be able to do smaller 'tester' samples at all? At the moment the concrete has just been laid and is it's natural colour. We think we\'d like it to be more of a slate / charcoal sort of colour but not sure, so we\'d like to trial a couple of tiny areas first. We also like the idea of stencilling, and considering a grey finish with lighter grey / white-ish pattern. What product(s) would you recommend, and can you do little samples? Kind regards, Jason

Firstly as the concrete has just been laid you will need to wait a minimum of 30 days to allow the concrete to cure before applying the stains to the surface.

you will then need to acid wash the surface to remove any dust or dirt and to profile the concrete to allow the stain to penetrate properly. I would then suggest using the Solid Colour Stain to the surface, this will give you an opaque colour in whichever colour you choose. Then if you are looking to use any further colours you will need to use the Smartcolour stain over the Solid colour. Both these colours are available to by in a 4oz tester size. http://www.adsealcolours.co.uk/Solid-Colour-Stain.html http://www.adsealcolours.co.uk/Smart-Colour-Stain.html http://www.adsealcolours.co.uk/Eco-Acid-profiler.html Drew Palin
