SEAL-KRETE Concrete Colors are available in four pre-mixed colors, a tint base, and a clear low-lustre sealer. A range of 30 colors is available with base tinting.

"There are a number of concrete stains available now, but none that offer the simplicity, the range of looks, and the strength and protection that comes with SEAL-KRETE Concrete Colors," says Tim Franklin, Product Development Manager for Seal-Krete. "Like all SEAL-KRETE products, Concrete Colors have a high-solids content to add protection with your beautiful finish. You don't get that with any other stain," says Franklin. Larry Pennock, Vice President of Sales and Marketing says, "These products are just so easy to use. You can use sprayers, rollers, brushes, a mix of colors - even stencils, and still get a great finish. Not many other stains actually increase the life of the concrete," says Pennock. "These products represent an easy-to-apply system for the DIY audience as well as the emerging DIFM customer. We want to make it simple, and we have."
