LITHOCHROME® Tintura™ Stain is a low VOC, environmentally friendly stain that includes vivid reds, yellows, blues, pastel pinks and beiges and even grays. The waterborne stain penetrates and bonds with porous concrete or cementitious toppings for permanent, nonfading, predictable colors. When finished with the compatible sealer, it is durable enough for interior floors, walls, columns and other decorative features.
Tintura is formulated specifically to stain concrete or cementitious toppings. Unlike coatings or paints which often delaminate when used on concrete, Tintura chemically bonds with cured concrete that is uncolored, color hardened, or integrally colored. It is also compatible for use with SCOFIELD® Texturetop® cementitious toppings. The Tintura System includes companion sealers that are required for long-term durability and long-lasting colors.
Either a translucent or an opaque appearance can be achieved with this proprietary system. Up to three coats may be applied to increase color intensity. LITHOCHROME Tintura Stain can be color-matched to the full range of Scofield colors, and custom colors can be produced. The final installed appearance will be unique depending on the color consistency, condition and porosity of the substrate and the cement and aggregates used.
