From charcoal to terracotta, concrete’s colour has the power to affect the aesthetics and value of your home, making excellent concrete colourants very valuable. At Auckland concrete paving manufacturing company Slatecrete, we understand the importance of quality, consistent and long-lasting colours, which is why we use only the best colourants in our range of concrete paving products.
Slatecrete proudly uses Permacolour’s Colourmix, one of the leading and most innovative concrete colouring systems available in New Zealand. Permacolour uses iron oxides to colour the concrete, and it’s this iron oxides that gives us the results our customers love.
Up to European and American standards, our iron oxides let us offer a wide range of concrete colours for internal applications like concrete kitchen benchtops and flooring, as well as external ones, like pool surrounds and patios. Our iron oxide colourants come in powdered form, which makes it easy to mix and economical to use.
There is a science to colouring concrete and the method includes sand, cement, aggregates, water, and pigments. To obtain a consistent colour, you need a precise balance of all these ingredients and an expert mixing technique.
Here’s a few of the qualities that make iron oxide a first-rate concrete colourant:
