The Color

Integral color is a powder or liquid that is mixed in with concrete to give it a new color. It is worth noting that these integral colors can be used for broom and hard trowel finishes.

 

  • How is the integral color addedThe powder or liquid integral color is added to the concrete truck at the job site. Once added to the concrete truck, the concrete supplier will mix the concrete until it is uniform throughout the entire mix design.
  • Will the color vary?We cannot guarantee that the color will look exactly as shown in the Solomon Color Chart, but we will do our best to get the color as close as possible.
  • What about cost?Every integral color is priced differently. Please ask your concrete design specialist for pricing on a particular color.
