Pigments for concrete resistant to UV light and alkalis

The best decorative coatings require the best pigments. Colour is a transcendental factor in decorative pavements as it beautifies the final result of them. And even more so in imprinted concrete floors, a continuous pavement that imitates the texture and colour of other materials such as brick, stone and even wood.

A need that Arcocem® responds to, our complete range of pigments for concrete to give a personal touch to any creation. High-strength pigments with which a wide variety of colours can be acquired. With high covering power, they provide an extraordinary and lasting finish.

Pigments that stand out for their high color stability, being suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. With magnificent resistance to UV light, weather and alkalis.

Our pigments undergo complex and strict quality controls.

Thanks to their excellent chemical stability, our pigments are capable of remaining unaltered in the most extreme environments. The color remains without losing an iota of intensity thanks to its good thermal resistance.

Designed to professionally colour mortars, terrazzo, plasters, microcement, prefabricated and plastering mortars. In addition to concrete and imprinted concrete. The intensity of the shade will depend on the amount of pigment used.

Other factors such as the granularity of the aggregates, the ratio between water and cement, the trowelling or the porosity can also affect the colouring of the concrete or mortar.

Within Arcocem®, we have pigments for concrete in powder format, water-based and solvent-based. Each subfamily contemplates its own color chart, in which there are colors from more intense and vivid to more neutral and pastel tones.

Arcocem Fast® powder pigments for concrete

Arcocem® Fast are the pigments for concrete from Topciment in powder version. Fabulous performance inorganic pigments that incorporate special additives. Specially designed for mass colouring of concretes and mortars, either in plant or on site.

Its formulation promotes the dispersion of the pigment and, consequently, homogeneous and totally stable colorations. Its high resistance to sunlight as well as to alkalinity, make them the best ally for outdoor spaces.

Easy-to-incorporate powder pigments. A dosing system that avoids homogeneity errors in the final colouring. In addition, they do not harm at all the final resistances of the coating nor alter the conditions of consistency and hardening.

Terrazzo, prefabricated or plastering mortars are other materials that can be coloured thanks to Arcocem ®Fast pigments. Products that limit the possible appearance of efflorescence in the future.
