United Coatings CanyonTone Stain


CanyonTone Stain is a modified, water-based acrylic, penetrating pigmented sealer. It possesses superior color stability, ultraviolet resistance, alkali and pollution resistance, and water-repellency. Toning pigments are chemically suspended in the acrylic resins, thus eliminating settling and color variations on the structure.

CanyonTone Stain is integrally locked into the substrate as a result of its low viscosity and microscopic penetration properties. It will not peel, crack or blister from a properly prepared concrete or masonry surface. CanyonTone Stain allows moisture vapor to escape from the building interior, while providing excellent water-repellency on the exterior through the use of hydrophobic resins

Sizes Available:

1 gallon (3.8 liter) can
4.5 gallon (19 liter) pail
49.5 gallon (208 liter) drum
256 gallon drum


CanyonTone Stain is a penetrating sealer and stain with excellent water-repellent properties. It corrects natural color imperfections in the substrate by imparting permanent color uniformity plus water-repellency without disturbing the natural texture of the substrate. It is not designed for application to horizontal surfaces. CanyonTone Stain is used as a uniform color finish on above-grade precast and poured concrete, glass fiber reinforced concrete, brick, stucco and stone surfaces. CanyonTone™ Stain is not designed to waterproof concrete block or other porous substrates. It can be used over masonry substrates to achieve color uniformity only. As a water-based system, CanyonTone Stain can be used on interior surfaces as well as exterior. Highway bridge structures, sound walls, median barriers, foundations, tunnels, retaining walls and related building structures are all candidates for the application of CanyonTone Stain. It is also an excellent choice for maintaining, restoring or changing the color of existing EIFS installations.


  • Uniformity of Appearance: Toning pigments are chemically suspended in solution at all times by a proven process that eliminates settling and color variations on the structure.

  • Color Retention: non-fading toning pigments are as durable as natural stone and will greatly resist ultraviolet and ozone attack.

  • Fast Application: dries quickly and can be rapidly applied in 2 coats over most surfaces.

  • Non-Oxidizing: CanyonTone Stain does not contain any ingredients that will oxidize, such as vegetable and marine oils, paraffins, stearates or organic pigments, which cause rapid degradation and allow moisture intrusion. CanyonTone Stain contains pure, non-yellowing acrylic polymers; there are no filler resins or plasticizers.

  • Non-Lapping: utilizes a unique acrylic resin formulation which, together with its low degree of pigmentation and sheen, virtually eliminates lap-marks under most application conditions.

  • Water-Based: Non-toxic and odor free for easy, safe application on both interior and exterior surfaces. Meets most Federal, State and Local VOC requirements.

  • No peeling or Flaking: Due to the micropenetrating qualities and tenacious adhesion of CanyonTone Stain to concrete and masonry surfaces, the stain does not peel or flake from the substrate as do typical “paint” finishes.
