HOW NATURAL STAIN WORKS?

Natural Stain penetrates deep into the pores of your cementitious surface to create a long lasting and colorful surface. In addition it solidifies crumbling surfaces. Unlike competitors SEMCO’s Natural Stain is proven to last through all kinds of climates, conditions and traffic.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS OF NATURAL STAIN

The SEMCO Natural Stain is a water-based, reactive/penetrating color system that provides rich, lasting color on exterior, interior and below grade concrete, masonry and X-Bond Seamless Stone surfaces. This environmentally responsible system creates lasting surface colors. Unique catalytic reactions provide natural, vivid, one-of-a-kind visual designs. Artistry and practicality combine to create beautiful and functional applications.

ACTIVE ADHESION

Integrated chemical adhesion enables mechanical cross-linking to applied surfaces, creating a perfect bond for long lasting protection.

Application instructions

Natural Stain Application

STAGE 1 – PREPRATION OF SURFACE

  • HOW : Lightly sand the surface with a 60 grit sanding disk. Clean all debris

PURPOSE : Removes excess texture and ensures chemical bond

 

STAGE 2 – APPLICATION OF NATURAL STAIN

  • HOW : Using fine pump sprayer, spray light coat of Pre Stain Base on to surface and avoid large drops. Work in 2 man teams side by side(1 with Pump Sprayer and 1 with HVLP). For concrete surfaces spray thin coats with HVLP.

         PURPOSE : Ensures chemical reaction of Natural Grain effect

  • HOW : While still wet apply Pre-Stain Color (Pre-Stain Base and Pre-Stain Activator combined, always stir the contents, avoid shaking) with an HVLP, airless sprayer with tip size 17, or a sprayer that is capable of atomizing liquids. (DO NOT ALLOW PUDDLING)

          PURPOSE : Do not shake to avoid in container reaction. No puddles for even color, must spray with low pressure for a pigment reaction

  • HOW : Move across area from left to right as you work your way down the surface, avoid missing any areas of the surface. Avoid stepping in Natural Stain

          PURPOSE : Ensures the finish and color stay consistent

  • HOW : The Natural Stain will then begin to dissipate and as the product forms to the contours of the X-Bond surface.

          PURPOSE : Chemical reaction creates the Natural Grain look

  • HOW : After drying, check if any area requires touch up. If necessary, lightly fog Pre-Stain color over areas that require touch up

          PURPOSE : Ensures a nice finish
