Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AmatonCC Very Good Reactive Acid Stain for New and Old Concrete
The Eagle Acid Stain performed very well on both new and 30 year old concrete. The custom precast concrete post bases were complimented nicely by the Rustic Stain and gave the "Pop" factor I wanted. Use a stiff plastic bush to massage the acid onto the concrete sides to prevent flow lines. Use same brush on top surface as well. Will use product again.

Power washing took the longest, over an hour. Spraying the stain was fast and easy. neutralizing and scrubbing was by far the hardest and longest step. The gloss sealer I used didn't come out of the sprayer in a fine enough mist to use by itself so I had my brother use a roller as I sprayed the concrete sealer/gloss. Overall I am happy with the project.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jimmy OK results.
Tried this for a second time because I like the color it produced on my concrete. I had an ok experience with it on an indoor floor but have seen some scratches and peeling. I used a concrete etch the first time and suspect I did not get it clean enough for the stain to penetrate all the way. I decided to try it again on an outside deck but not using the etch this time, just a cleaner/ degreaser. I added water to the mix 2:1 and wet the concrete before application. Although the stain did penetrate the concrete I still had large amounts of stain dust come off the concrete after the neutralization step. After reading about what could have caused my problems this time I am convince I should not have diluted the stain with water and may have had the concrete too wet at application. Would buy this product for a third time which might be the charm. Only from my experience, I would not use any water and try it as straight stain. Hope this helps someone not to make the same mistakes I made.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Adi Easy to do and looks great
We used this for our new stamped concrete and came out great. We spayed it in a circular motion without brushing it in like some videos say. We wanted a two tone effect We did two coats. On the borders we rolled it on to have a more consistent color. We also did afront porch that has old concrete and came out good. We powered washed it a few times and used stripper to remove old paint. We also painted over two pieces of integral colored concrete and the results of the colors were the same as the stamped concrete. It was a light integral color so I'm sure it will vary by color.
We thought it would be cheaper than integral color but after we finished we probably spent more than integral color but the results I think are better and look high end. The color variation you get look great
Overall we are happy with the results.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Timo Results not as expected, but very pleased
I had a new walkway poured in April and then my driveway and patio poured in May. I prepped and applied the stain to all of them on a mild day in November. The stain reacted completely differently on the walk than it did on the driveway and patio due to different batches of concrete. However, I love the results on both. I used the rustic on the borders and the taupe on the main areas(though Home Depot did not have taupe on the website at the time, I called Eagle products and they swapped out the wheat for the taupe on my order)
I also used the Eagle Armor Seal which works well but makes it a bit slippery when wet even with a rough textured float finish.

After watching few videos on how to stain (it looks so easy ) i bought this product. First its not all that easy as it sounds and looks. You will need a lot of time cause takes time to prep etch dry neutralize wash off dry again betwen coats etc... Product does do the job. You will need 2 gallons for 400sqft garage. In HD store they sold me Muriatric acid for etching saying that i need this before i stain ( while i was waiting order to come in mail i cleaned and etch with acid , next day order came on and first thing it said DO NOT USE ACID TO ETCH) Went to store with instructions to ask them why they said Acid etch is must. Wanted to be sure that i didnt screw something up(and i did). The guy who sold me the Acid made excuse that he ment for Behr stainer you need to use Acid :(. Its to late now. It did good job but would be much better if i didnt kill all crystals in concrete with Acid etching process. For first coat dont soak it wet it takes forever to clean neutralize. Lost of Amonnia water and washing off. It came out pretty cool. Im happy over all. Just wish i didnt used that Acid to etch.
