Rated 5 out of 5Â by claudia Fantastic results!
I used the Eagle system to prep and stain my old, previously painted (and frequently flooded) basement floor. I can't rave about it enough. While the pre-work to get the old concrete stripped and into a dye-ready state was extensive, the actual application of the Eagle etcher, dye, sealer and polish was simple and produced an amazing result. My floor looks fantastic! The dye absorbed quickly, the sealant worked great and the polish gave it a professional finished look. Even better - there was very little odor or fumes with all of the products, unlike a traditional acid etcher or stain. It was great for such an enclosed area.
I honestly wish I had more concrete in my house. I want to do more rooms!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by sportyspice Cola is a Warm Brown
After reading a lot of reviews, we decided against doing the acid stain and instead we used this concrete dye. So glad that we did. We wanted a warm brown that didn't have any reddish cast or a greenish cast...just a nice warm brown and that is what Cola turned out to be. Be prepared for a lot of floor preparation (mopping...a lot of it)which takes time but must be done for good results. This took us two days for 600 sq feet from start to finish. We followed the video for this product and used all the Eagle brand products recommended. Found the video by Googling "Eagle Interior Concrete Dye". This is the product list in order of application: 1. Etch & Clean 2. Degreaser & Neutralizer 3. Interior Dye (2 coats) 4. Armor Seal (3 coats) 5. Polish (we chose Matte Polish which came out to be semi-gloss for some reason which actually looks great) (2 coats). Also download the instructions on the Eagle website for the Interior Concrete Dye which gives you a checklist of items needed and further instructions. We purchased a Roundup pump sprayer with a fine spray and conical tip as recommended which worked great. After one sprayed coat of the dye we decided to do a second to add some more color and after all is said and done we are glad that we did. It took on lights and darks when applying with a circular motion and looks just like an acid stain. A big plus is that there isn't muriatic acid used in this dye process. I seriously don't know why anyone would choose to do the acid stain when this alternative is less toxic and turns out looking the same. We slept in our loft each night with no fumes. We moved our furniture back in 4 hours after the last coat of polish. It looks great! Highly recommend it. The only wish would be that it would be nice to have a customer help line phone number for Eagle for any detailed question just in case.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jackson Turned out Beautiful!
Our concrete floors look amazing...this cola dye turned out beautiful! It is a warm chocolate brown, the variations in color really look great, the cracks in the cement are now my favorite part! Our basement floor was clean and in almost new condition even though it us 18 yrs old. We did the etch and clean, followed by 2 coats of dye, 2 coats of seal and 2 coats of polish! We used 4 bottles of dye to cover a 1200 sq ft floor...could have possibly used 1 more bottle to go over some parts where the concrete soaked up the dye faster...but we really like the light shades as well as the darker shades. The hardest part was the prep...taping off the walls and the etch and clean process was more work than we expected, the spraying of the dye and sealer was easy and so was the polish. The previous reviews is what convinced us to use the a Eagle Brand products and we couldn't be more pleased!

This product is great and easy to use. We could not afford to put in new carpet or anything else for that matter in our 3 bedrooms, so we decided to try this out. We have 2 of the bedrooms completed so far and they look great. The Eagle help line that is provided is very helpful. They are very nice and will answer any and all questions. We told the representative what color we were looking for and we took his suggestion and it was perfect. The only thing that I wish is that some kind of color wheel was provided on line so that you could kind of look around at the other colors to see what else they look like.
