Pellücid Dye is a translucent, UV stable aqueous acrylic dispersion of organic and inorganic pigments designed to penetrate exterior and interior cementitious surfaces. Pellücid Dye creates a unique, multi-colored translucent colour pattern that unlike paints will not crack, chip or peel. Pellücid Dye is available in 20 standard colors but can be combined to create an unlimited colour palate.
Pellücid Dye is recommended for most cured, unsealed exterior and interior concrete substrates. Do not apply to a floor that has been sealed until all the sealer has been completely removed.
Surface Preparation is the most critical portion of any successful flooring system application. All substrates must be properly prepared as outlined in Düraamen’s Technical-Bulletin-1.pdf. Work must be performed by trained or experienced contractors or maintenance personnel.
Test areas are strongly recommended on the actual surface of the proposed application. Testing in several areas of the concrete will better determine suitability, coverage, adhesion and approximated final results.
Pellücid Dye is packaged only in a concentrated liquid form which needs to be mixed with acetone in 1quart, 1gallon or 5gallon increments. Mix Pellücid Dye into appropriate amount of acetone per instructions (this will depend on the size of the bottle purchased). Using the re-closable acetone container is recommended for mixing. Blend the mixture by stirring the open container, or by shaking the closed container for 30-45 seconds. Do not use any electrical device to mix the dye with the acetone.
Apply Pellücid Dye using an acetone sprayer with a conical tip, keeping the tip approximately 24” from the surface. Apply in a uniform circular motion, not allowing the dye to puddle. The concentrate should appear wet for just a few moments when applied properly. Mop up any puddle or excess dye with a clean rag to allow the surface to dry evenly. Allow Pellücid Dye to dry approximately 15 minutes.
