Concrete absorbs heat. Add dark colors to it and you can increase the surface temperature by 100° F. Ouch! This heat absorption in concrete is what contributes to the “urban heat island effect” causing hotter air temperatures in urban locations than surrounding rural areas.
Use CoolStain™ PRO to keep your concrete cooler. It’s a patent-pendingpolymer-modified, water-based, premium concrete color stain. CoolStain PRO is made especially for use with existing, unsealed, exterior, concrete surfaces.CoolStain PRO is NOT a paint. It penetrates the surface of porous concrete and forms an opaque (solid), and breathable finish that requires no sealer. As its name implies, CoolStain’s patent-pending infrared reflective technology minimizes heat build-up of concrete surfaces exposed to sunlight, reducing the temperature by up to 50° F!
