Concrete Pigments can be used to add color to Concrete, Countertops, Overlay, Stucco, Plaster, Mortar, Grout and other cement-based materials. Pigment integrally colors the concrete offering consistent, even tones across the slab. Our pigments are high quality, dry, lightfast, odorless, alkali and weather resistant, UV stable, non-hazardous, chemically inert, water insoluble and are tested to the ASTM C979 standard.
Unlike many of our competitors, Direct Colors sells directly to the public at affordable prices without large quantity requirements. We serve both large commercial customers as well as home and business owners with smaller projects.
Direct Colors Concrete Pigment Color Charts are designed to provide a close approximation of what our customers can expect achieve in gray or white concrete. For custom pours such as countertop mixes, plaster, stucco, concrete overlay, grout and other concrete-based products, when adjusted properly for specific job requirements, the colors vary within an acceptable range for the majority of our customers. If you’re working on a project that’s not exactly concrete, we have pictures of the actual concrete pigment to help you better select the color for your needs.
Measuring Pigment for Your Project
Direct Colors provides five 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, such as stucco, mortar or grout, 5000 psi countertop mixes 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. Visit our Project Calculator to make sure you’re measuring properly.
