Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Reviewernickname12345679 Peels up with blue painters tape
Used this on the concrete floors in our project. I followed the instructions. The color turned out nice, although it is more red than the picture on the box. After a month I used some blue painters tape on it while I did some caulking, and when I pulled up the tape, the entire finish came with it. It didn't penetrate the concrete at all. Therefore, I cannot recommend this product. They named it Concrete "Dye", not "Stain". That must be the difference between stain and dye-- stain penetrates, and dye is superficial. And they should sell this without the kit. I don't need 3 sprayers, but I might need a little more dye and sealant to expand the project.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ennisite THIS IS PAINT - NOT DYE
This product is not a dye. It is a paint. It adheres to the concrete, but does not penetrate it. We followed the exact instructions for use of this product. The finished result was beautiful and we were very pleased. However, the first time a work boot shuffled across the floor, a blister formed. When we rubbed the blister, the dye (paint) peeled right off in a large section. We scraped another section intentionally to see if the entire floor would do this, and of course it did. Behr was contacted and agreed that the product should not be peeling and that it sounded like we had followed the instructions but still suggested user error. They offered to send us more product to repair the now bare spots. We will be peeling the rest of the product off the floor (shouldn't be too hard) and starting over with something else. I'm very disappointed.

We bought 1 gallon + 1 quart to cover our patio. Around 500-600 sqft. The product itself is very affordable and easy to apply. We first prepped with an etcher and finished it with 4 coats of the Wet Coat Sealer ( A 5 gallon bucket was $120 and we ended up using about half).
We spread it out over a few days, since everything needs time to dry in between applications, and the entire process took less than 8 hours.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Woody7 Paint not dye
This product is paint with all the disadvantages of a painted surface. This is NOT a dye. The look is decidedly different than that of a stained surface and as only one color was used the finished product looked cheap, spotty and decidedly more opaque than stains. The Behr sealer that needs to be used with this dye also looks cheap and very plastic, amplifying the spottiness and cheapness of the look. 3 days of hard work prepping the concrete down the toilet, all because of a poor product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Annandale Did not live up to the brochure color
The color of the paint applied to the concrete did not match the color shown in the brochure. Followed the instructions, cleaned the concrete floor and applied the dye. The color in the can seemed different from the brochure. I thought this would be corrected once applied to the concrete floor. The color was no where to that of the brochure color. I am very disappointed with the finish and quality. I have used other THD paint for concrete floors and have been very pleased with the result. This one fails to live up the brochure color and my expectations.

We bought this product to stain our 500 sq. ft. patio. After cleaning and prepping as recommended, then applying the stain it started to flake off. Call customer service and they advised i clean off the areas flaking with a pressure washer and follow the same steps to apply the stain again and it continues to flake off.
Don't waste your money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nick Prep, prep and re prep concrete
I did alot of research prior to my projectand bet 95% of those with bad reviews didn't properly prep floors before applying. It is time consuming but if yourconcrete is not ready to accept adye or stain results will suffer
After powerwashing ,scrubbing, acid washing the floor was finally pourous enough for the dye. This part was easy but make sure your floor is completely dry! I used a 3/8 roller applied thin coat and was very concerned as very little color showed , 2 hours later coat 2, and next am final coat . Waited 24 hours and sealed with solvent. Based sealer. It looks amazing . If you prep right and remove all previous stain, sealer etc. The dye part is simple

I actuall went to get another product and came across this one. I read the directions fully and bought everything I needed for the project. In my opinion dye looks beautiful, and am happy with the product. Only complaint is product does not cover as much sq as claimed
