Is acid stained floors slippery?

Ask a Pro
 
Q. -  How slippery is the floor after you have done all the steps? I want to do this over my whole house but I am afraid it may be too slick - especially in the bathroom. Could you add any grit to the sealer?
 
Hello Alex

A. -  It isn't very slippery at all when using Concrete Camouflage products. The acid stain doesn't sit on top. It changes the surface color. The sealer goes on very thin. The Top Shield floor wax has traction additives built in. You can add the traction additive to the sealer if you like but it's really not necessary. Of course any concrete can be slippery when wet but with the floor wax, which was designed for commercial application and has traction qualities built right in, is much less slippery than most other waxes.

Will acid stain work on cinder block?

Ask a Pro


Q. -  Can cinderblocks be done with this stain?
 
Hello Darla Robertson

A. - Yes you can though cinder block is more porous and drinks up more stain so I would figure around 250 sq.ft. per gallon with the artist grade.
