Concrete dye is a coloring agent that penetrates the surface of the concrete. It is designed to provide a permanent color that will not fade or peel over time. Dyes are available in a wide range of colors and can be mixed to create custom shades. They can be used on both interior and exterior concrete surfaces, including floors, walls, and countertops.
One of the biggest advantages of using concrete dye is that it dries quickly and can be applied in a single coat. This makes it a popular choice for commercial and industrial applications where downtime is limited. In addition, concrete dye does not leave any residue, making it easy to clean up after application.

Concrete stain is a coloring agent that reacts with the minerals in the concrete to create a natural-looking, variegated color. Unlike dye, stain does not penetrate the surface of the concrete, but rather sits on top of it. Stains are available in both acid and water-based formulations and can be used on both interior and exterior concrete surfaces.
One of the biggest advantages of using concrete stain is that it creates a natural-looking finish that mimics the look of stone or marble. In addition, stain can be used to create a variety of effects, including mottled, speckled, or marbled patterns. However, it is important to note that stain can be more difficult to apply than dye and may require multiple coats to achieve the desired color
