architectural concrete chemicals are formulated to enhance the beauty and performance of concrete. They include form release agents, non-staining curing compounds and retarders, stains and coatings, grouts and reinforcing materials.
Traditionally, gray concrete was the natural choice for a range of designs; however, colored concrete is increasingly common with inorganic pigments added to traditional mixtures. The addition of iron oxide in yellow, red and their derivations, chromium cobalt oxide in green and blue, and carbon black for black results in hues that are more stable than paint.
Stained concrete is the most popular application for adding colorful depth and interest to concrete. Available in a wide range of colors and with a variety of application processes, these lightfast inorganic stains offer endless possibilities for stunning aesthetics.
Walttools Tru Hue Integral Color is a highly potent, easy-to-use concrete stain that provides color all the way through the material. It is commonly used as the “background” for Accent release, Antiquing agents or other contrasting concrete stains.
In order to create integrally colored concrete, pigments must be compatible with both the cementing and aggregateing materials. They should also meet or exceed ASTM C 979-82 – Pigments for Integrally Colored Concrete, which establishes criteria for the alkali resistance, stability and lightfastness of pigments for use in concrete.
Decorative concrete can be a wonderful way to add both beauty and function to a building. Surface treatment options include a variety of techniques that expose aggregate particles such as acid etching, sand blasting and water blasting. These surfaces can vary in color, size, shape and gradation and are generally used for pavements and sidewalks.
