OCERA™ NATURE'S COLORS
SEMI-TRANSPARENT STAINS FOR CONCRETE AND MASONRY SURFACES
OCERA Opus™ Series Stains are water based, breathable, semi-transparent formulations designed to color to concrete and masonry structures, while retaining both the texture and the natural characteristic of the surface. Opus™ stains are designed using recently developed nanopigment technology, which allows a higher degree of permeability and color distribution into the substrate due to their fine size and non-settling properties. Opus™ stains are pigment based formulation and contain no dyes, thereby exhibiting high resistance to fading from sunlight. Opus™ stains contain minimal amounts of volatile petroleum solvents and do not exhibit any objectionable odors, making them safe to use in enclosed, interior applications. Opus™ stains contain no waxes that can yellow, discolor or inhibit bond to subsequent applied coatings or sealants. Typical application uses include over stamped or textured concrete, architectural precast, concrete block, brick, and stucco.
APPLICATIONS: OCERA Opus™ Stains can be used for decorative concrete including flatwork, stamped and textured concrete, concrete counter tops, concrete masonry units, stucco, mortar, grout, and most any other Portland based surface. They can be used safely in either indoor or outdoor applications.
- Achieve beautiful, natural colors that exhibit mottled hues and tone
- Exhibit a high degree of reaction equal to traditional acid stains without the same hazards of transport, use and personal protection
- Can be used to make quick and easy color corrections over existing stains for routine maintenance
- Contain no light sensitive dyes or additives that will fade over time, making them safe for outdoor applications with a few color exceptions
