Colour For Concrete


Concrete can be coloured in two ways – Using Colour Surface Hardener or Integral Colourmix



Colour Surface Hardener


Colour Surface Hardener

Colour Surface Hardener is applied by hand and trowelled into the surface of freshly poured concrete, colouring and hardening the surface of the concrete. Colour Surface Hardener is available in 25kgs bags in a range of 24 different colours.

 

Please see the PICS Colour Surface Hardener Colourchart below



Integral Colourmix


Integral Colourmix

Alternatively the concrete may be coloured using an Integral Colourmix which is added to the concrete while it is in the lorry and mixed thoroughly. This is then laid as normal concrete. This product colours the concrete slab throughout but does not harden the surface. Our Integral Colourmix is available in water soluble bags – 1 per cubic metre. Integral Colours are manufactured to suit the cement content of the concrete mix being used. These are available in 24 different colours.

Release Agent



Release Agent

An Antique Powder Release Agent can be used on either method to give a second colour to the slab while preventing the imprinting mats from sticking to the concrete. This product is available in at least 13 different colours.

Concrete Stains



Stains, either water-based or acid-based can also be used to highlight certain features, borders etc.
