This brick-staining dye permanently changes the colour of porous bricks to a carbon black colour. The ready to use paint-on stain creates a strong integral bond with masonry to provide a permanent vapour-permeable and natural brick finish
Total Wall Care brick stains are formulated using the finest pigmented powders dissolved in a potassium silicate fixative fluid.  The dyes can be diluted with water if a lighter tint is required. The brick-dye is absorbed deep into pores of brick brickwork and other porous masonry, providing a permanent alteration of colour to match typical rustic red bricks.

How to Dye Masonry to acheive a Carbon Black brick effect.

  • Our brick tints are supplied in 1L containers and are ready-to-use. Shake thoroughly and decant into a suitable vessel.
  • Mix with water if a lighter tint is required (maximum 2 parts water to 1 part brick stain).
  • Paint tinting dye directly onto the face of each brick using a clean brush.
  • Apply further coats for deeper tinting
  • Where brush-strokes overlap a darker shade may be produced.
  • This tinting dye will stain clothing and other absorbant materials! Wash all spillages immediately with lots of clean water.
  • Our brick stains do not change the texture of the bricks; they merely provide a permanent alteration to their colour.
  • Produces 3L of brick-staining dye at maximum dilution
1L of brick stain will tint approximately 20-25m2 of brickwork.  However the exact coverage rate will depend on how porous the bricks are and the depth of colour desired. We recommend a trial application to determine precise coverage rates and shade.
