Smart Colour Stain

This question was asked by
Chris James

Can this be applied to fresh concrete (ie 6 days old)

It is recommended that newly laid concrete is left to cure for 30 days before applying a stain to the surface, the moisture evaporating and the chemical reaction taking place as the concrete cures can cause the stain to fail and lift.

I would like to discuss options for staining a poured, polished concrete floor with a brass inlay design. The floor was exposed to a leak 12 months ago and as a result has a number of cracks and ‘pigment picture framing’ that is an eye sore. We are exploring options of replacing the whole floor, but I would like to understand what finish we could achieve with filling cracks and staining the whole area. Could you please contact me to discuss further.
Many thanks,

Hi, I have recently laid new concrete and plan to grind and polish shortly. Could I mix the above with the densifier at the polishing stage.
I am looking to get a random density of a colour as a finish. If not is there another product I could use inj this way.
thanks in advance

Hi John
yes you can mix the Endura faux Fusion with the densifier at the polishing stage
We strongly recommend you do a small test area first though

but you will need to check with the authorities about taking it on board as we don’t have any information about that.
