Miracote Mirastain

Miracote Mirastain is a co-polymer and water-based carrier concentrate solution designed to be field mixed to formulate an Architectural Accent Stain to color surfaces of many poured-in-place cement, mortar or concrete construction materials. Miracote Mirastain base dilution is achieved by adding a Miracote high-grade Colorpax-LIP dispersion and a specified proportion of a specified grade of a safe solvent to the Mirastain II Base. The derivative product known as Miracote Mirastain is a co-polymer and water-based carrier solution specifically formulated to penetrate concrete, masonry and polymeric enhanced cementitious surfaces to provide color tinting or staining of the surface. Miracote Mirastain is designed to accept most water-based sealers and is specifically formulated to accept Miracote’s water-based  MiraGard HDWB clear acrylic in water solution; MiraFlor WB, water-based clear epoxy; MiraPrime ML, water-based epoxy; and MiraThane WB. Also, MiraFlor CQ Clear, a high solids clear two-component epoxy; or MiraFlor Glazetop, a high-solids clear aliphatic elastomeric polyaspartic, is often applied as a protective finish on decorative flooring applications. Miracote Mirastain yields a flat luster, which can be enhanced with Gloss, Matte or Satin sealers as desired.

Where to Use
Miracote Mirastain is recommended for use over concrete. Miracote MPC, MiraStamp, Miracote MT, Miracote MT-DP, and can be applied over most cement based self-leveling systems, masonry and polymer modified cementitious substrates when a flat Architectural accent color is desired to provide a vibrant, translucent color tint that transforms any surface into enhanced intricate designs and décor. For added diversity, Miracote Mirastain can be applied over integrally colored substrates or substrate that have received chemical reactive staining to further develop accent color or variegation. Simultaneous application of multiple color tints can yield many interesting tones and mottled effects. Miracote Mirastain, however, will deliver relatively consistent results over Miracote MPC-MT or MiraStamp applications because the substrate materials are factory controlled.

MiraPatch DP

Miracote MiraPatch DP is a thin-section, rapid-hardening composition that is flexible, resilient and easy to clean. MiraPatch DP produces an extremely durable, low cost, yet attractive appearance. MiraPatch DP can be installed over concrete when pre-smoothing or pitch is required. Typical thickness up to 1 1/2 of an inch (38 mm) are easy to achieve. MiraPatch DP is light in weight and at approximately 1.2 lbs. per square foot. It can be used in the widest ranges of climates and is offered in slip-resistant profiles. MiraPatch DP is supplied as a light gray powder.
Important characteristics of MiraPatch DP are its extraordinary adhesion coupled with its ability to withstand prolonged pedestrian and vehicular traffic. In these respects the material is far superior to conventional cementitious coatings used to resurface old or worn concrete.
MiraPatch DP provides a tough retardant coating, which substantially reduces or prevents water penetration, freeze thaw, scaling and concrete carbonation.
