"Brick Staining Technology, Inc frequently asked questions"
Is there a difference between paint and Brick Staining Technology ?
Yes, BST stain penetrates the surface of the material it is applied to. While a paint product adheres to the outer surface. BST stain sinks into the substrate and bonds below the surface.
What types of surfaces can be stained ?
BST can stain brick, block, mortar, precast, natural and manufactured stone. If your product absorbs water, it will accept our stain. Flat surfaces such as patio pavers, patios, driveways and walkways are also acceptable to our stain. BST has recently developed a new product called "BST SIDEWALK NEW" this unique stain allows you to create the effect of a new sidewalk on worn older walkways.
How is the BST stain applied ?
Normally BST stain is applied by hand one brick at a time. However, we use several different techniques such as sponging, spraying, etc. to achieve a perfect match. The application process differs for each surface so the most effective technique will be determined on a per job basis.
Do you offer a BST guarantee ?
Yes, we guarantee our BST stain for 50 years. In Europe, where the masonry tinting-staing technology originated, there are structures that were tinted over 80 years ago that still look perfect.
