SOY BASED STAINS FOR CONCRETE SURFACES
OCERA Evolve™ Series Stains are eco-friendly, non-hazardous "green" semi-translucent pigmented formulations designed to provide color alteration to residential or commercial concrete flooring. The OCERA Evolve ™ stains are soy methyl ester based formulations which are made from renewable resources making them safer and easier to use than traditional acid stains. OCERA Evolve™ Stains are nano-pigment based formulations that penetrate very easily and provide beautiful, multiple shades of color while retaining the natural characteristics of the surface. OCERA Evolve™ Stains contain no UV susceptible dyes, thereby exhibiting high resistance from sunlight. OCERA Evolve™ Stains contain very minimal amounts of volatile petroleum solvents and do not exhibit any objectionable odors, making them safe to use in enclosed, interior applications. OCERA Evolve™ Stains contain no waxes which can yellow, discolor or inhibit bond to subsequent applied coating or sealants.
APPLICATIONS: OCERA Evolve ™ 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 cement based surface.
