Concrete Countertop Stain
1qt. (946ml) per bottle. Will cover approximately 75 - 100 sq. ft.
Z Aqua-Tint is a water soluble concrete dye formulated for use on concrete counter tops. It can be applied to polished, troweled or textured concrete. Z Aqua-Tint will duplicate the performance of solvent based dyes while eliminating the dangers of flammable solvents. When cured, Z Aqua-Tint exhibits the same long lasting beauty as traditional dyes. Z Aqua-Tint comes in a variety of colors that can be mixed to create nearly any desired tone. 100% countertop safe.
Will cover approximately 75 - 100 sq. ft.
WARNING: Colors may vary depending on concrete mixture initial color and the porosity of the concrete. ALWAYS test on a sample piece or in an inconspicuous area to verify color before coating entire top. Samples were created with Z Counter-Pack mix and standard concrete mix sanded to 400 grit before applying Z Aqua-Tint. Two coats of Z SiAcryl 14 were then applied.

I am so impressed with the stain and sealer. Wow. My concrete counter looks stunning! And thank goodness, because I really took a chance.
We've been living with one granite counter and my other large counter top was raw concrete. It was a rough kind of shabby chic, but I knew at least for sanitary purposes I should seal it someday. I had no idea how it could be done, I never seen Z-Aqua Tint or Sealer info.
I had tried using a minimal coat of grout, then adding a sealer. But that has been the extent of my experimentation.
Through more research, I found this video and ordered. The products came right away. After reading many reviews, tips and directions, I went for it. I got the Ebony, which I diluted. I was not surprised at results at first, looking slightly blue ish after the first coat. I made sure to use the tint a second time. Then I sealed the counter, with just one good coat. The result turned out absolutely gorgeous, beyond belief. People tell me the counter is even more beautiful than my back granite counters.
I agree with everyone's compliments. And I'm so proud of myself to try this. Many thanks to this company for the good video and work of selling this product!

I used the earth color and it looked very green a first. After 3 coats it looked great. It did have some dark spots from the overlapping of coat but when I put the sealer on they went away.

Worked like a charm and blending shades made for a picture perfect project. Easy and clean work.

I went with the Cola stain to get the leather type look, I had a couple trial and errors but that was due to lack of knowledge of ever staining concrete. I had the guys I contracted apply the stain at first ( tell your wife if she isn't clear on how it's suppose to look then they are just guessing, lol). So here's what I've learned with using this product that may be helpful to others. If your concrete is smooth and your looking for that dispersed cola color look then apply with a brush and wipe the hard edges as you go, I found that if you take the brush and work in the color but don't let the stain sit in a dark puddle to long, just spread it out and wipe with a saturated stain cloth, when you dip the brush then start it a couple inches away from where you stopped to dip and work it back to the color and and away in every direction from where you first touched the brush down. I recommend you do the first coat and wait at least 24 hours and do the second or third coat, this prevents you from chasing the color or hard edges because it dries more uniform than you think. This was a pretty easy product to work with and do test an off center section to get a feel, I don't recommend rolling because you will see the dark overlapping lines (Unless that's what you're going for). DON'T put epoxy on until you let it dry completely and are satisfied with the way it looks when you lightly wet it down ( the epoxy will bring out a nice shine and it's tough as nails!) If all else fails it's concrete, use a diluted acid wash and it takes the color down to where you can start over or throw a coat of Micro topping or Wunderfix (that's how it's spelled) and start over. Hope this insightful, sorry if I lost ya!

The aquatint was really easy to apply and the colors were great. I applied the color to an outdoor kitchen concrete counter top.

You really have to be patient and see it through to the end. We ordered ebony, and at first, we were a little startled at the coloring. We were not seeing ebony, but a blue hue. After a couple of applications, we achieved the coloring we were looking for. There really is now way to mess it up, so just work with it until you get the results you desire.

Have always used pigment coloring before, but I like this. More control/artful application. Final results look great!
Advantage with pigment is that you, the installer, knows in your mind that the color is true/through from surface to bottom. Truth is though is that no one ever sees 'into' the concrete, but only ever see the surface.
Why not just color the surface then.

This product was very easy to use and after three coats the color was pretty accurate to the color chart. The sanding of the concrete really seems to play a key role in how the product takes. We applied the sealer, but it wasn't as shiny as I wanted so today I ordered the polish and I'm sure that will do the trick. I did have to order a second bottle of the dye too as it didn't cover as much as we expected.

The video made it look easier than it was and my two color choices as shown on the video didn't blend as well as his. I like that you can dilute it to lighten the color and clean up was easy!!
