Synthetic iron oxide, a leftover from chemical processing, actually has the ability to turn gray concrete into different shades of earth tone colors. The creation of colored concrete involves four steps:
- The pigment is created by an industrial process that results in a small particle that coats the larger concrete particle.
- The water to cement ratio of the mix needs to be maintained at all times, and if a slump control mixture isn’t added, the addition of water will lighten the color and result in different color slabs.
- Raw grey concrete is mixed in, depending on the hue or color that is desired for your cement.
- The final stage involves curing the concrete. If the pervious concrete is not adequately cured, the color can become inconsistent. And while colored concrete may age, it usually just changes its shade or hue; it won’t fade.
