ARTesian Water-Based Stain®

Color: Burlap (AS-100)
ARTesian stain is a penetrating, water-based stain that produce unique color effects in finished cementitious surfaces that simulate the natural shadings and aged appearance of stone or masonry. The color effect produced is unique to each stained surface and cannot be duplicated with other materials. ARTesian Stain contains no acids or harmful chemicals and works as an alternative to typical reactive acid stains. There are no acids or harmful chemicals integrated in its design.
Basic Uses:
ARTesian Stain may be applied over any properly prepared vertical or horizontal concrete surface, cement-based overlays, some masonry surfaces, artificial rock displays, water features, themed finishes, or pre-cast concrete products.
ARTesian Stain is a water-based formulation. ARTesian Stain contains no hydrochloric acid, making it more environmentally friendly.
ARTesian Stain is available in 20 standard colors. Greens and blues, unlike reactive stains, can be used outdoors. The colors can be dilluted with water for muted tones.
Samples and Mock-Ups - BRICKFORM strongly recommends samples and/or jobsite mock-ups when using the ARTesian water based stain. The product is translucent and will look different on every slab. Variations in cement color, finishing techniques, and surface preparation will have an effect on the final color outcome. The color chart is a general guideline and should be used as such. Use jobsite mock-ups for final color determination. Applications on overlays will typically yield stronger colors and samples should be made using the application method planned for the field installation. Colored concrete will also have an impact on the final color outcome.
Use water-based stains on cementitious surfaces including stamped concrete, concrete overlays, and some natural rock or masonry. Dilute, mix, and shade stains for a variety of unique coloring effects. With no acid or reactive chemicals, water-based stains are easy, safe, and predictable to use.
