Concrete Overlay Color ChartAdding color to overlays
The color options for concrete overlays are limitless. You can buy mixes that are pretinted like paint or you can add the pigment of your choice during mixing to produce custom hues.
Once the overlay is applied, experienced installers can achieve more elaborate color effects, such as antiquing or marbleizing, by accenting the base color with layers of topically applied color.
Some of the options include:
colored liquid or powdered release agents (typically used with stampable overlays)
From Butterfield Color, Uni-Mix Integral Concrete colors can be used to color Butterfield Color's T1000 stampable overlays, sprayable overlays and Micro-Cem Ultra-Thin Overlays. This is just a sampling of the wide variety of colors that are available from Butterfield Color and other manufacturers.
