Integral Color is added to a concrete truck and mixed to give color throughout the concrete. This type of color is available in a liquid integral and powder integral form. Integral color can vary in price depending on how light or dark the color is. If the color is dark, it may require more integral color to create that specific color choice and can increase cost. It is important to know the sack mixture of the concrete being poured and whether or not a concrete pump will be utilized in order to insure the right amount of color is used. This product can be used for slick, broomed concrete, or stamped concrete surfaces.

Antique Release and Liquid Antiquing are two common ways to provide a secondary color to stamped concrete. These products are used as accent colors to highlight textures and grout lines found in various stamped concrete patterns. Antique Release comes in a powder form and is used at the time the concrete is stamped to prevent the concrete stamps from sticking to the surface, while also adding an accent color to the grout lines and texture of the stamp pattern. Pressure washing excess Antique Release from the surface is recommended, unless otherwise desired. Perma-tique, manufactured by Butterfield Color, is a powder that is combined with water and sprayed through a pump sprayer or brushed onto the stamped concrete surface. Misting water onto the concrete surface aids in the application of liquid antiquing and allows it to flow off higher portions of the stamp pattern and into crevices and low textures.
