Technical Data​

NawTone-K mineral stain uses silicate as a binding agent to form a permanent chemical bond with substrates. The addition of lightfast, inorganic pigments enables a wide range of colors to be produced. NawTone-K exhibits the overall characteristics of being:

UV & Weather Resistant Lightfast Penetrating Aspiratory Durable Odorless Mold & Mildew Resistant Environmentally Friendly

NawTone-K can be diluted with NawThinz-C for concrete surfaces or with NawThinz-M for masonry surfaces to create color-wash, semi-transparent, or opaque finishes. Our customized application techniques make NawTone-K a superior choice for new construction, renovation, restoration, and preservation. Because NawTone-K chemically binds with concrete, it is ideal for use on precast and tilt-up projects. NawTone-K offers consistent color solutions for complete color changes, decorative applications, and solving color problems. This product is also very effective for blending away color variations that naturally occur in the manufacture of concrete. This includes correcting unsightly or mismatched patch repairs as well as skim coat finishes.
