        Q:Can this product be thinned in any way to make it a lighter color?

        Answer This Question

        A:  The Acid Stains can be diluted with water at a maximum dilution rate of 1:1. It is always best to do a test area with acid stains to determine color.

          Q:Can this product be used on fiber cement board being used as exterior siding panels?
          by|Aug 22, 2022
          2 Answers
          Answer This Question

          A:  Since the fiber cement board contains cement and has the material needed to cause the acid stains to react, it is possible to get some level of staining if it does not have a primer or previous coating already applied. That is not a normal application and a test should be performed to determine how much and what color will be generated.

          by|Aug 23, 2022

            A:  The product will likely destroy the fiber cement.   It deeply etched the stamped concrete that I used it on.  Also not happy with the results at all.

              So very disappointed...
              Our porch looks horrid after applying this product. It in no way even comes close to the online pictures. We are so very disappointed & out almost $200.

                Very happy...first time acid staining
                This was my first time acid staining, and I’m extremely happy with the results. Like most things the outcome is generally reflective of the effort put forth. If you expect this to be a quick and sweat free process then acid staining isn’t for you. The key is to be patient and devote a lot of time to cleaning and cleaning and cleaning the concrete before staining, and then cleaning and cleaning and cleaning the stain before sealing. And as most articles I read before tackling this project said you won’t actually see the true color until the second thin coat of sealer is dry, and I found that to be the case. I bought and 18” roller frame to make the sealing portion go quicker, and the satin sealer I chose provided the perfect amount of shine for my liking.

                  Not Grey
                  Purchased this even though there were mixed reviews. It turned out dark brown. Very disappointing. I stopped after the first coat and the picture is as it was drying. Our house is black and we’re looking to turn our brand new patio into a beautiful oasis. Now we are looking to have the patio recoated with concrete to fix.

                    Love this stuff although the one thing I will say is expect the bowling ball effect and not a a solid color. For a more uniformed color you will most likely have to apply heave and brush.

                    GRAPHITE leans towards black with very little brown. I will attach a picture as I was unable to find any good representations online before purchasing. This picture represents 2 coats of stain and 2 coats of satin/wet look seal.
