Concrete Colour can be achieved in a variety of ways. It can be achieved by integral colouring of the full depth of the concrete to installation of shake on or dust on colour hardening materials. Additional colour and pattern can be provided through imprinting and texturing tools and by using powdered and liquid antiquing colours.
Concretech manufactures a wide range of materials for providing colour and pattern to concrete:
Integral Colour – conveniently packaged in 6.5 lb disintegrating bags, Concretech makes integral colouring hassle free. Simply toss in the correct amount of bags, charge the concrete mix for ten minutes and pour.
