With integrally colored concrete, the entire batch of concrete is colored all the way through, similar to adding food coloring to cake icing. We use powdered form integral color that is derived from natural iron-oxide pigments. The palette for integral pigments consists primarily of soft earth tones that integrate well with most landscapes and architectural elements. Unlike topical stains, the chief advantage of integral pigments is that the color extends throughout the entire planter, so even if surface abrasion occurs, the color will not wear away. The pigments in integral colors are also chemically stable and won’t fade over time from exposure to the weather or ultraviolet light.
While we do our best to accurately represent the product color and texture, image variations do occur. Colors and textures may appear differently based on screen and monitor settings, varying lighting sources, environmental factors, and photographic enhancement. Sealers will enhance and also darken the color. Please keep in mind that all pictures are for illustration purposes and the actual product may slightly vary from the photos. Requesting color samples is recommended.
