Davis Colors are color additives that mix right in to transform portland cement-based paving, concrete products, structures and landscaping materials. Davis Colors are integral color admixtures that give concrete natural good looks and a permanent hue. Driveways, patios, pool decks, site furnishings, even interior floors and countertops are being made with colored concrete. Made of 60% recycled content from reclaimed steel and iron, Davis Colors are added by concrete suppliers and contractors right into the mix, so installation is cleaner and easier than dust-on hardeners, overlays, stains or coatings.
True Tone colors contain iron oxide made from reclaimed metal or naturally occurring ores plus conditioners. Every batch is produced under rigid QUALITY controls for uniform color box-to-box and year-to-year. True Tones exceed ASTM C979 - Standard Specifications for Pigments for Integrally Colored Concrete and can also be mixed into concrete, grout or plaster. Used within recommended mix rates (10% maximum), they won't harm mortar strength or durability. True Tone colors are sun - fast, lime proof, weather resistant and environmentally SAFE.
W-1000 is a water-base modified acrylic co-polymer emulsion that doubles as a membrane forming curing compound and a long-lasting sealer, especially formulated for architectural applications. W-1000 quickly dries to a semi-gloss, non-yellowing and durable barrier against moisture, oil and most stains. W-1000 is a milky white liquid that sprays on blue and dries clear on any horizontal concrete surface. Its non-clouding formula makes it especially suitable for use on architectural, colored, sand blasted or exposed aggregate concrete.
Color Seal II is a membrane forming acrylic co-polymer sealer which is sprayed-on fresh colored concrete as a curing compound. It is used instead of water curing or plastic curing sheets which can discolor the slab. Color Seal II Keeps water in the slab while it cures which helps prevent cracking and optimizes final hardness. It also dust proofs and seals the surface to protect against water damage and most stains. It is semi-transparent and tinted in 40 different shades to match our color card for integrally colored concrete.
Davis Colors guarantees its integral color products comply with ASTM-C979 standards, with the exception of 8084 and 807 due to their effect on air entraining admixtures. If any Davis Colors products are found to be defective, buyer's sole remedy shall be refund of color purchase price from point of purchase.
