Sharing many of the very same raw materials with concrete, mineral silicate paints and stains never look artificial on concrete or masonry. The very natural mineral matte appearance of these paints and stains blends seamlessly with the raw look of concrete.
And since these finishes penetrate, you may select to leave the original concrete texture completely unchanged. Of course, should the concrete need some smoothing and filling natural mineral fillers can be added to minimize surface deficiencies and to hide blemishes and patches whether the concrete is new or aged.
Mineral paints and stains have a natural appearance on concrete that cannot be matched with latex or acrylics—which can appear “artificial” due to their thermo-plastic nature.
