"Brick Staining Technology,Inc. frequently asked questions"
What types of masonry surfaces can be stained or coated with BST's products?
All Masonry surfaces - Brick, block, mortar, precast, natural and manufactured stone and concrete. If your masonry product absorbs water, it will accept our BST Ultra-Translucent 600 masonry stains. Flat surfaces such as patio pavers, patios, driveways and walkways are also acceptable to our 600 stains. Brick Staining Technology, Inc. recently developed a new product called "BST Sidewalk NEW" this unique stain allows you to create the effect of new sidewalks on worn older walkways. BST's Tough-Coat product is used on glazed and hardened masonry products that do not except water. They are masonry products that are real hard or dense. This product adheres to the outer surface and allows BST color technicians the ability to color correct masonry that before this product was developed could not be changed. BST's Mortar Choice is used when mortar is off color and needs to be color corrected. Simply the most economical way to change the color of existing mortar.
BST Product line: BST Ultra-Translucent 600 Brick & Masonry Stain, BST's Tough-Coat, BST Sidewalk NEW, BST Mortar Choice and BST's Magic Mix Admixture 359.
How are the BST stains and coatings applied?
Normally, when color correcting brick, BST's Ultra-Translucent 600 masonry stain is applied by hand one brick at a time. However, we use several different techniques such as sponging, sliding, ragging, spraying, etc. to achieve that perfect color and or match. Most of this is determind by the product we are appling to the wall and the type of masonry that is receiving the color change. The application process differs on each masonry surface so the most effective technique is determined on a per project basis by one of Brick Staining Technology's project managers or color technicians.
Do you offer a BST guarantee?

Shown below is a precast panel with thin brick installed. The customer was not happy with the color consistency of the brick and contracted Brick Staining Technology to stain the off color brick units. Precast panels like the ones shown here have become much more popular over the last 8 to 10 years. It allows the mason / builder to have more control over the elements such as rain and snow and also comes in at lower square foot pricing on new builds and masonry restorations.
