color concentrates, which are Color Dispersion Additives (CDA), render attractive colors to cement based concrete. We call this Internally Colored Cement Dispersion (ICCD). It is permanent and does not require external painting. One of the most popular methods for coloring newly placed concrete is integral coloring admixtures. These admixtures infuse concrete with rich, long-lasting, fade-resistant color.
With integrally colored concrete, the entire batch of concrete is colored all the way through, similar to adding food coloring to cake icing. All types are generally a blend of organic or inorganic pigments that are formulated to disperse evenly when mixed into fresh concrete, either at the ready-mix plant or at the jobsite. Dosage levels can be used from 0.5% to 3% of the concrete volume based on the intensity, depth and cost impact of colour
