UNI-MIX® INTEGRAL CONCRETE COLORS
Integral color is mixed into the concrete in the truck. The color is either added at the concrete plant or on the project site before the pouring begins. Integral color is the most common way to color and concrete and Butterfield Color offers a premium integral color system called Uni-Mix® Integral Concrete Color. The Uni-Mix® System is the preferred system of contractors, specifiers and owners.
Uni-Mix® Integral Concrete Color has proprietary ingredients that make it unique. Our competition will try to “match” our color, but it’s been our experience and quite unsatisfied customers’ experience, that the color does not turn out the same. If you are choosing from our color charts, require that your contractor uses our color to ensure the success in the job. A quick and simple way to ensure this is to request the lot numbers of the color before they pour.
PERMA-CAST® ANTIQUING RELEASE COLORS
The antiquing release is dusted over the surface of freshly colored concrete flatwork before using a pattern-stamping tool. The release agent prevents the tool from sticking to newly colored, freshly stamped concrete. As the tool is pulled from the concrete, the colored release powder is layered into the textured surfaces of the concrete. Upon washing and sealing, the difference in color between the underlying concrete and the release creates a visually attractive, antiqued look to the concrete. The added color gives the appearance of depth.
The amount of release agent imparted will vary with job site conditions. The final results will range between color of base concrete to that of the antiquing release, usually landing somewhere in between. Since the antiquing release is mechanically, not chemically bonded, the surface must be sealed and maintained to preserve its antiqued appearance over time.
