Product Overview

Eagle Acid Stains create marbled variations of color on cured concrete by chemical reaction with the minerals in the concrete. Every concrete floor will react with its own unique pattern. Once sealed with clear sealer, your floor will pop with an elegant look. Because acid staining is a tedious process, Eagle concrete dyes should be considered if a simple process is important.

California residents: see   Proposition 65 information

I'm thinking of using this on my stoop that was poured last spring. It's kind of a dark grey. Well, not DARK, but it's definitely not the lighter gray/almost white that I'm used to seeing. So, how much does the original color matter when choosing a stain color?

Answer: 
It matters a lot, when the concrete is wet you can see the average overall color you are working with. You will be limited to to colors that are near or darker than the wet concrete since this is a reactive stain and not a paint or solid coating that layers color on a surface. Once the stain is applied and bonds you are married to it for better or worse unless you diamond disk sand the top layer off and Read More

What I would do is a test piece . The stain I used was rust colored and it gave the 4 week old concrete different light a and dark patterns. I don't have any other experience with other colors but would tend to think the characteristics would be the same.

If you want a solid color more of a concrete stain, non acid would achieve that.
Reading the instructions the concrete also has to be free of oils etc as that will effect the color as well. You Tube has a bunch of examples Read Less

Answer: 
The end color will depend wholly on the amount of lime in the top few millimeters of concrete. The color of the concrete doesn't mean there's more or less lime in the top coat of the concrete, just that the aggregate mix is different.
Any spots where the top layer is porous, chipped out, or worn down will stain differently and likely a little darker. If you are going for the varied color look of acid Read More

Answer: 
Not lengthy, just need to be patient. I completed 2 coats and the sealer in a weekend with temps in the upper 70's.
Spray application is easiest, just need to protect items you don't want to stain from overspray.

Answer: 
You must clean the surface really well and let it dry. Then it's recommended to spray a fine mist of water to dampen the concrete. Then use your sprayer to apply the stain. A second coat within a few hours if you want. Then you need to wait a few hours for the acid to do its thing. Then you have to neutralize the acid and scrub the surface rinsing well at the end. Then you must let the concrete dry Read More

Then you must let the concrete dry completely before adding the sealer. So it takes a lot of time. I spent parts of 3 consecutive days on my porch. Less than 10 hours total I would say. Read Less

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 53 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works as expected. 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. July 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Anyone can acid stain concrete with this product! Product created a finish that looks professional and rich! So easy to use. October 18, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by concrete didn't turn out right followed all the directions, and the concrete just looked like a tinted brown. not happy about it. October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 15, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product 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. March 22, 2016
