q on staining concrete - pretty basic, best subforum I could find..


I think this is the right spot for this.


My sher williams concrete 'stain/sealer' product says crete must be cured for 45 days before application.

What will violating this do?

(I'm not undertaking a serious project in any way shape or form, I'm making a very small thing for decorative purposes that could easily be remade again in like 10 minutes and with a 100th of a bag of concrete lol, so if it's a 'maybe it'll ruin it' thing I wouldn't mind. More looking for reasons of it hurting the cure, or coloring weird, stuff like that..)

any tips, or just conjectures lol, would be appreciated!

Two things.
1.The moisture left in the concrete prevents the sealer from bonding well.
2. The colors change depending on the moisture consistency still in the cement.

I would wait till cured, then scrub the area clean before applying the stain.
Good Luck,
Mike

i see!!! Guess I'll just need to think of something else creative lol, maybe I'll do multiple mortar colors and swirl (I'm making a small incense holder - I like to do little pointless projects on my 'days off' lol)
