Unique and unrepeatable

The acid stained floor is in fact a truly “custom-made floor” that is designed and built according to the designer’s and customer’s requirements. Acid Stained cement floors are created using particular acids from metallic salt compounds which penetrate into the concrete and react with the free lime, chemically changing the colour to produce unique and permanent variegated effects.

Our Ideal Work® acid stains create variable, diverse or translucent effects that are very similar to the nuances of natural stone or the aged appearance of a weather worn coating. The result is unique for each surface and can not be duplicated with other dyeing materials. Concrete loses its banal appearance and takes on a rich and natural beauty.

Unique and modern

Acid stained concrete has caught the attention of design studios, architects, landscape architects, designers and decorators for incorporation into the design of private houses, lofts, public spaces, shops and showrooms, restaurants, nightclubs, pubs, pavilions and exhibition fairs, hotels and shopping centres.

Thanks to the adaptability of our Ideal Work® products and technologies, each individual project is evaluated and designed according to the type of end usage and the traffic it has to support. Depending on these criteria and your specific requirements, flooring thicknesses, type of texture (powder or pasty), the type of surface finish and other technical variables of flooring are decided.

Practical and easy to maintain

Commercial installations shine with easy-to-maintain colourful floors. In terms of durability and abrasive resistance, the colour of the acid stained concrete is of a better quality than the concrete surfaces covered with acrylic dyes or other types of resins that can peel, fade or disintegrate quickly. Thanks to their chemical reaction with concrete, the Ideal Work® acids that we use become part of the surface. They are not subject to fading, spoiling, cracking or peeling.
