Not satisfied with the results of the Behr Concrete dye kit in (Tuscan Stone) How to Fix??

This question is from Tuscan Stone Concrete Dye Kit
Asked by
Tamster
August 13, 2013
We followed the instructions in full. Took two weeks to properly clean prep & etch our indoor concrete. Our concret was in great condition but had to use a ton of time to clean & prep.Due to tons of paint and plaster on outer edges by the walls. Application of the base coat went well. After first coat dried completley we noticed that the result was very spotted. After it dried completley we added a second coat of the base and it looked much better but still had spots. After that dried we perceded to the accent color.We were a little cncerned when pouring into the sprayer because the color looked more black then walnut. We figured since it was transparent it would dry lighter....No such luck : ( Its verry dark & not complimenting the base coat at all! Its very spotty and in some places looks like car oil stains. This was done in my living room and hallway. Any suggestion how to fix? My husband thought maybe if we go over it with sand stone color with a sponge that it may lighten the really dark areas.

Dear Tamster,
Thank you for using our Behr Premium Decorative Concrete Dye. We are sorry to hear about your situation. Before we recommend a solution, we us provide our assessment and why the finish result in that manner. Interior concrete is commonly more dense and smooth finished. Unlike exterior concrete that is more porous and broom finished. Interior concrete is often sealed to help protect against moisture, treated with adhesives/glues for carpeting and sometimes coatings from the initial build of the home. All these factors make interior concrete a little more challenging for Decorative Concrete Dye to penetrate into the surface, which is essential for the right finish. The "spotted" areas you are referring to are pockets of concrete that is less porous or slightly sealed underneath. It is spotted because the Concrete Dye pooled in those areas. Your husband's suggestion to add a lighter toned color over the dark spotted areas may only darken those areas more. We will provide you a few options to help remedy your situation.
Option 1 (Strip Spotted Areas)
If you would like to strip out the dark spotted areas, you can use the Behr Premium Paint Stripper. Just apply a small amount of Paint Stripper on to the dark spotted areas. When the Paint Stripper coating wrinkles, carefully scrape off. Some areas my require more than one treatment. Please caution this option may affect the surrounding light toned concrete dyed areas as well. Also you may left scrape marks on the surface.
Option 2 (Coat over with Solid Color Concrete Stain)
If you would like to coat over the entire area and achieve even solid color look, use the Behr Premium Solid Color Concrete Stain. First lightly scuff sand the surface to provide a light medium grit texture. Then apply the Solid Color Concrete Stain to the entire area. Please caution this option will completely cover the Concrete Dye and will result to an even opaque finish.
Option 3 (Light etch)
If you have not sealed the surface, one option you can consider is to light etch the surface to remove the Concrete Dye. Dilute the Behr Premium NO. 991 Cleaner & Etcher ( 5 parts water to 1 part Cleaner & Etcher) and lightly apply on the dark spotted areas. Quickly rinse the Cleaner & Etcher off the treated area. This treatment will light etch and remove some of the Concrete Dye. Next lightly sponge on the Concrete Dye to the treated areas. Please wear acid resistant gloves, boots, goggles and have good ventilation when handling the Cleaner & Etcher. Please note if the surface is sealed with the Behr Premium Wet-Look Sealer, the Cleaner & Etcher not affect sealed areas. If you want to protect and not discolor certain areas, seal those areas first before treating the adjacent areas with the Cleaner & Etcher.

Unfortunately it looks as if your sprayer was spotting during the application instead of spraying the fine mist that is needed for a more gradual color change. Not sure why it took up to the drying phase to notice that. Since it's on now, I'm uncertain of what to suggest that would help. We had the same issue in application, and I put it down to a faulty sprayer. However since we needed 3x the product (3 full kits) we had 3 sprayers and were able to find one that worked pretty reliably most of the time. I would bear in mind that both colors are somewhat translucent; that is, the "black looking walnut" will show some of the base color below depending on how much you apply. We did 2 somewhat heavier base coats and 2 VERY LIGHT accent color applications, being VERY careful to keep the sprayer from spotting at all times.
I would try contacting the manufacturer and see what they suggest. Perhaps you can go over the top with another base coat to even things out with a more gradual color change - though if you can't get a sprayer that doesn't spot, that could simply exacerbate the problem. I'm not sure I would add a different color at this point, and am really not at all sure that the other color offered would "go" with this one. I would also be cautious adding additional accent color, since you are unhappy with the color, as well as the spotting. Another application of top coat properly applied with a sprayer that doesn't spot could help even things out but would also darken the floors further.

Hello Tamster!
Thanks for the photos ... the images show a good example of Tuscon Stone.
Most often semi-tranparent stain has an irregular color (spotted) to create lighter and darker accents.
If you would like to create a more uniform lighter color, use the etcher again, rinse thoroughly, and use a wet-dry shop-vac to remove the rinse water.

Allow to dry completely, and then apply the lighter color of your choice in solid color concrete stain.
The etcher will open the pores of the cement floor, allowing your next coat of stain to absorb.
And the solid color concrete stain will make a more uniform appearance. Read Less

Can this product be used on concrete walls?

I have very rough looking poured concrete walls in my basement. I think the concrete forms were breaking down when they did my basement and there's even some wood from the forms embedded into the walls. I'm ok with the basement looking rustic, but wondered if i could dress it up a bit by applying this process to the walls? And if yes, are there special differences in application that you would recommend? For example, do you think i even need to use the etch, given that the walls are already pretty rough? Do i have to use the finishing product, or is it ok to leave this unfinished, since no one will walk on it? (I might still want to, just asking if a "must".) And are there any extra precautions i should take, given that the application is higher up like this (due to splashing etc)? Thanks

Thank you for your interest in Behr Premium Decorative Concrete Dye Kit. Our product is recommended for use on floors or horizontal surfaces only as this water based dye is thin and may drip on vertical surfaces. However, please consider our other Behr branded line of paints (like BEHR PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® or BEHR MARQUEE®) for your concrete walls. Hope this helps and best of luck on your project!

2. Spray sporadically the second coat (Accent Paint)
3. Buy the "Rust-Oleum EpoxyShield 1-gal. Clear High-Gloss Premium Clear Floor Coating Kit" to seal it. Then you should be good.
Do not use the sealant provided in that kit. It is garbage!

Answer: 
Hi Cindy,
Thanks for your interest in our Behr Premium Decorative Concrete Dye. For proper penetration and adhesion to your substrate, concrete surfaces must be etched before application of the concrete dye. Etching allows the dye to penetrate into the pores of the concrete. After cleaning and etching, completely rinse the surface. Failure to completely rinse will result in adhesion issues.

Rated 2.4 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fabulous results We had a room that had painted concrete and originally intended to install linoleum. Found this product and immediately bought it. We stripped the concrete with chemicals and a floor buffer. It was a lot of hard work, and I began questioning my decision to dye. After stripping we cleaned the concrete with the etcher. This was a crucial step. It really opened up the concrete to absorb the dye. It was a little difficult rinsing the etcher off indoors until we got out the shop vac. That worked wonderfully! The only deviation from the kit was the glossy clear coat. We used an epoxy glossy clear coat which is more like a plastic cover. I think it will make the surface more durable over time. All in all, I really loved the results June 19, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BEWARE!!!!!! DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT!!!!!! I puchased this product this for a 4 seasons room addition I put on my house. I followed the instructions to the letter and the allowed 4 days for the final coat of clear top coat to cure. Within a week the product started peeling from the concrete. Now I'm left to have to strip this from my concrette and redo the floor. Save your time and money and move on to a better product. January 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WoW that was easy! This product was fast and easy to use and everyone loved it even my wife. Now i have other jobs to do. April 3, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by I would not recommend I would not recommend this product. I followed the directions and steps for prep and application exactly. My concrete patio looked amazing when finished. It was so beautiful. An the places that have stayed in tact are still beautiful. However, this product peels up in little spots here and there leaving white spots on the patio. You have to be very careful not to scrape it with a chair, so I put felt feet on all my patio furniture. But still in random spots it will just peels up for no reason - no traffic, no furniture, nothing to make it peel. The smallest spot is just a spec size but the largest is a couple of inches across. This was a very expensive project since I dyed about 900 square feet of patio. I just hope I can somehow repair the areas that have peeled. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] February 14, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome result WITH epoxy top coat!! After reading other reviews, I was worried about using the sealer that came it the kit. After allowing the dye to dry for 2 days without any contact, I could tell the "stain" was going to lift off from the concrete. Decided that we had invested enough $$$ that I wanted a excellent end result so I bought an epoxy topcoat. Absolutely the best decision as the dogs travel this high traffic area a lot!! No scratches or bare spots after months of use. Spend the money for epoxy!! Great end result!! Only gave 4 stars because of the stain lift off after drying. July 5, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by waist of money We had out patio done about 3 years ago and coloring was starting to fade. We decided to do it our self this time and purchase the kit. It seemed to go on easy enough. It didn't cover as much as it said it would so we ended up having to purchase another kit. It lasted for about 2 weeks and when it rained most of it chipped off. Looks worse than when we started. Very disappointed, wish I could get my money back. December 14, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by This stain was a waste of my time First off...I followed the directions EXACTLY as followed. After a 8 - 10 of preparation, I applied the stain. I was so happy, the color was beautiful. Then I applied the gloss. - WORST MISTAKE EVER. The gloss made it really beautiful, after waiting the proper amount of time for the gloss to dry, we moved our furniture back. Immediately the gloss started chipping off and the stain came off with it. Our floor looks horrible now. We're going back to carpet. We have concrete stain throughout our home (not Behr stain) and none of the floors have chipped. This is a bad product. November 14, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product was so easy to use and looks great We purchased the Desert Oasis. The tone is much less red than the Tuscan stone, which went better with our colors in the room. However, it stained very dark, which may be due to our concrete. We still love it and are amazed at how it transformed our room. We loved that this comes in a kit and had everything we needed. OUr room was slightly bigger than the recommended size (ours is about 350 sq ft) but there was just enough dye in the kit. The video directions were also very detailed and helpful with many suggestions. All in all, it's a great product and would highly recommend it! March 21, 2012
