DCI Concrete Dye is quick-drying, easy-to-apply acetone-based, translucent topical colorant intended for concrete floor or similar applications. When used properly, this product will provide true, consistent color for indoor and outdoor surfaces. Concrete Dye is a dye and seal product and is not intended for polished concrete floors.
DCI Concrete Dye must be applied with either an aerosol sprayer or an acetone sprayer. If using a hand-held pump-up sprayer, air pressure is essential to a successful concrete dye application. Pump up the sprayer to the highest point possible. The concrete dye should spray as a mist and not in the form of droplets. If the sprayer begins to drip and dye droplets form, stop and pump up the sprayer again. Frequently pumping the sprayer to maintain consistently high pressure will produce the best application results. The product cannot be applied with a brush, roller or similar applicator. Concrete dye is not a good choice for excessively rough and/or heavily-broomed concrete. For best results, pre-seal the surface before applying the dye with Sprayable Satin Finish Sealer. If the concrete has been ground or has a rougher texture, a second coat of sealer may be necessary. Three or more dye coats are generally required to achieve most colors. Each additional coat will produce a darker, more intense color. For enhanced color diversity, apply two or more colors. Seal concrete immediately after applying to protect the finish. Acetone must be purchased separately. DCI Concrete Dye is also available in individual sample sizes.
DCI Concrete Dye is particularly useful when attempting to stain areas that cannot be easily colored with concrete acid stain. DCI Concrete Dye is an excellent choice for secondary accents on tinted concrete sealer and acid stain finishes, stenciling, design work, and borders. Dye can also be used on slabs not suitable for acid staining such as concrete poured with a waterproofing additive, with exposed aggregate or areas previously treated with muriatic acid.
