Time to start concrete decor projects for your backyards, outdoor living areas and gardens!
DCI Concrete Dye is a quick-drying, easy-to-apply acetone-based, translucent dye that creates a vibrant topical layer of color that will not crack or peel. Concrete Dye is available in over 40 different colors. When used properly, DCI Concrete Dye will provide true, consistent coloration for indoor and outdoor surfaces. Concrete Dye is a time-saver and is an excellent choice for any project where time is of the essence. Concrete Dye is perfect for stenciling, vertical applications and can also be used in conjunction with concrete acid stain to enhance color and texture. Floors that have exposed aggregate or have been previously treated with chemicals are also good concrete dye candidates.
Unlike acid-based stains, DCI Concrete Dyes do not react chemically with concrete. The dye is applied with either an aerosol sprayer or an acetone sprayer. UV-stable pigments combined with acrylic mix with acetone create a topical, translucent color suitable for most concrete types. DCI Concrete Dye is not recommended for rough or porous surfaces. For best results, seal the surface before applying the dye, especially when applying colors lighter than the actual concrete. Three or more dye coats are generally required to achieve most colors. Each additional coat will produce a darker, more intense color. DCI Concrete Dye is a dye and seal product and is not intended for polished concrete floors. Seal the concrete immediately after applying to protect the finish. Acetone must be purchased separately.
Surface preparation is critical to success. The concrete must be dry and free of debris, dirt and oils, drywall mud, paint, adhesives or anything that might prevent the color from bonding with the surface. Areas where debris remains on the surface may prevent the dye from adhering properly leaving color imperfections on the floor. The floor should be completely dry before beginning the dyeing process.
