THE SCIENCE OF BRICK STAINING

Cincinnati's best brick stain combines 80 to 100 mesh mineral oxide pigments, a proprietary bonding agent and an environmentally safe carrier to create a slurry that absorbs into the structure of the brick and the brick stain permanently bonds with the clay substrate.

 

Once applied, the pigment and the bonding agent chemically attach themselves to the masonry pores. Because the oxide’s molecules are smaller than the pores, they do not impede evaporation of water from the unit. These physical properties render the application permanent while not altering the pore structure, therefore the durability of the brick.

 

Once dried, the stain doesn't seal the brick, leave a film, fade, peel or crack. Our Cincinnati brick stain bonds well with any masonry product that has absorption: Brick, Block, Mortar, Manufactured Stone, Natural Stone, Cast Stone, and Limestone, to name a few.
