Options for coloring concrete surfaces

Colorants Can Make Any Concrete Floor Look Great

Do you have a concrete floor that simply looks bare and unfinished? If so, the chances are good that you would like it to look better. Unfinished rooms can have a negative effect on the value of your property, and coloring your concrete floors can be a big step towards finishing the room, whether it is the garage, your basement, or an outbuilding. At Duraamen Corporation, we offer a wide variety of products to help you color your floors and give them a brand new look.

Stains Can Be a Great Choice

Duraamen offers a wide range of colors when it comes to concrete stain. Each color will look slightly different depending on the base used, as well as the properties of the cement or the aggregates used in the concrete. With the right stain or combination of stains, you can create almost any look you want, from solid black to wood or a mixture of different woods or colors. You can even mix colors by spraying them on top of each other or by blending them to create truly unique color effects.

Dyes Are Also a Good Option

If stain isn't quite what you are looking for and you want a ready to use coloring system for your concrete floor, you may wish to consider dyes. Dyes can be mixed with acetone or water and can create everything from very subtle earth tones to rich, vibrant colors depending on what you want your room or space to look like. There are many advantages to using dyes, including the fact that they can be easily shipped using next day air. Liquid concentrate dyes also eliminate the usual three hour waiting time that comes along with using powdered dyes and they can be mixed with water or acetone in order to make water or solvent-based dyes. One downside to these dyes, however, is that they fade over time when exposed to frequent UV light, which is why they are for indoor use only.

Duraamen Corporation does carry UV stable exterior dyes for those looking to dye outdoor cement surfaces. These dyes are very economical and low maintenance and create a mottled effect that is similar to using chemical stains. These dyes have a remarkable 15 minute drying time and only a 20 minute recoat time, making them incredibly convenient to use.
