Rust-Oleum Introduces Rust-Oleum® Semi-Transparent Concrete Stain

Vernon Hills, IL. - Decorative concrete is quickly gaining acceptance as an inexpensive flooring alternative, allowing consumers to personalize their living and working space. Now the company that revolutionized the look of garage floors with EPOXYShield Garage Floor Coatings is proud to introduce a new, water-based concrete stain: Rust-Oleum Semi-Transparent Concrete Stain.


PR Concrete StainA penetrating, water-based stain, Rust-Oleum Semi-Transparent Concrete Stain transforms dull concrete into a decorative focal point! Because it’s water-based, it is safer and easier to use than acid stains. This durable UV, chemical and abrasion resistant stain beautifies and protects both interior and exterior concrete surfaces.

Low odor and easy to apply by garden or trigger sprayer, sponging, ragging or brushing, it is ideal for use on porches, patios, walkways, statuary, garage and basement floors, pool decks, pavers and more. The stain adds dimension to concrete stepping stones, retaining walls, benches, and concrete and masonry blocks. It dries to the touch in 1 hour, and is ready for light foot traffic in 24 hours.

Rust-Oleum Semi-Transparent Concrete Stain is available in 34 durable, vibrant, natural colors that resist chipping and peeling, including seven premixed colors: Sienna, Burnt Brick, Burnished Gold, Earth Brown, Limestone, Patina and Pewter. It is also available in a Tint Base formula that yields 27 custom colors like Clay Pot, Red Rock or Quarry Stone. The stains can be used individually or combined to create unlimited high-end looks.

Rust-Oleum Semi-Transparent Concrete Stain is also offered in four DIY friendly kits available in today’s most popular decorative color combinations: Terra Cotta, Tuscan Rock, Sandstone and Slate color hues. Each Concrete Stain Kit includes two gallons of concrete stain in coordinating colors, a pump-up sprayer, disposable gloves, concrete etch, Rust-Oleum Wet Look Concrete Sealer, and bilingual instructions and step-by-step instructional DVD.
