Time to start concrete decor projects for your backyards, outdoor living areas and gardens!
Concrete Pigments are easy to use and offer consistent, even color tones across the cement surface. Pigments color the concrete throughout rather than just topically so even if damaged or worn, the color will remain unchanged. Choose a color from our color charts or create your own custom color for concrete, countertops, overlay, grout, stucco, plaster or similar cement-based materials. Pigment is a fast, easy option for any DIY project, large or small.
Even for DIYer’s, pouring concrete with pigment is as easy as selecting a color! Concrete pigment is added to the concrete truck prior to pouring and the concrete is finished smooth, stamped or textured by professionals. You’ll just sit back and watch! A stamped or textured surface can later be accented with a contrasting Liquid Colored Antique color for greater depth and variation. All outdoor concrete should be sealed after 28 days with one of our high quality sealers.
Concrete Pigment is a popular countertop color option, especially for polished surfaces. Because the concrete is integrally colored, the polishing process won’t remove or diminish the color. As you polish, the countertop becomes more smooth and lustrous making the color “pop” for a beautiful marble-like finish. Concrete pigment can also be used to create a countertop base color for acid stain or deco gel accents or fine design work.
Direct Colors has provided several concrete pigment calculators to help customers determine how much pigment will be needed for their projects. The pigment needed to achieve a specific color is based on the amount of cement in the mix rather than the total weight of the bag. The project calculator tool is designed to calculate for truck pours, custom concrete batches and bags of ready mix concrete. When using the custom batch calculator, keep in mind that the weight of cement will vary by material and to correctly adjust the values accordingly.
