Stamped Concrete Concrete Accent Stain – Water Based
SureCrete’s Eco-Accent is a water-based stamped concrete accent stain, non-hazardous, zero VOC, UV stable concrete coloring agent that bonds to any textured concrete or cement-based surface including overlays. A single color, boring, lifeless, concrete can be transformed into a multi-colored, antiqued, variegated, surface. Restoration of old, dull, weathered stamped concrete or textured overlays may also be accomplished through application of Eco-Accent.
Eco-Accent is available in 10 colors, and while this product was primarily designed to be used to restore and renew old decorative concrete surfaces and projects, it can certainly be used in conjunction with brand new stamped concrete or texture overlay mixes to bring added depth of color over a large area. This user friendly coloring is easily manipulated by the applicator and if correction requires, it can be completely removed prior to sealing the finished job.

Frequently Asked Questions About Eco-Accent Stamped Concrete Accent Stain:
Why has my Eco-Accent antiqued concrete substrate faded over time?
Answer: There are multiple reasons depending on the situation, but for most cases, it boils down to two main reasons: UV exposure and sealer degradation. On its own, concrete surfaces accented with Eco-Accent will fade over time if exposed to direct sunlight, and all colors will fade if a sealer is not correctly applied and maintained. Over time, sealers fade and need to be replaced or replenished with a fresh coating.
How much Eco-Accent should I use?
Answer: The generic application method described above is used to achieve the colors listed on the color chart, however this can be varied to get deeper and richer tones as desired.
