What do customers say about Chemstain:
“Every LITHOCHROME Chemstain floor I’ve done is a “work of art”! Chemstain truly takes on the personality of the concrete and provides a beautiful concrete surface.

I’ve used Chemstain in both interior and exterior applications with long-lasting results. The colors can be used to create beautiful patterns and designs, or I can simply use a single color, from which you get many shades to enhance the other textures of the project.

For me, the beauty of Chemstain is that it becomes part of the concrete. A simple re-seal will usually bring it right back to its original beauty even after years of wear. I love Chemstain and continue to “love to go to work” because of the lasting impression I am able to create for my customers.”
