OCERA™ NATURE'S COLORS

NOVEL™ SERIES

ORGANIC REACTIVE STAINS FOR CONCRETE SURFACES

OCERA™ Novel™ Series Stain contain eco-friendly, non hazardous "green" organic salts obtained from natural and botanical (plant) sources which react quickly with the concrete surface just like acid type stains. Novel™ Stains are metallic salt based formulations which penetrate into cementitious surfaces and chemically react with calcium hydroxide (free lime) forming new durable, insoluble, and permanent chemical compounds with random mottled color hues. Unlike traditional acid stains, which contain hydrochloric (muriatic) and/or phosphoric acids for reaction, Novel™ Stains are safe to apply and transport with no loss of penetration or reactivity.

APPLICATIONS: OCERA™ Novel™ 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. They can be used indoors or outdoors with a few color exceptions (Refer to Limitations Section).

BENEFITS:

  • 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
  • Are formulated using "green technology" and qualify for LEED credits
  • Contain no light sensitive dyes or additives that will fade over time
