Pigments for concrete resistant to UV light and alkalis

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

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

Pigments that stand out for their high color stability, being suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. With magnificent resistance to UV light, to weather and to 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 is maintained without losing an iota of intensity thanks to its good thermal resistance.

Designed to professionally color 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 troweling or the porosity can also affect the coloration 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.
