RMC Color Release is a custom blend of color pigments (ASTM-C979), dry hydrophobic powder, and other proprietary ingredients. They are made with RMC’s pure, light fast, weather proof pigments. Manufacturing quality and consistency is assured by strict control of blending the components in their proper proportions. RMC Color Release Powder adds color variations and highlights to the textured surface, providing an attractive two-color antiqued look that very closely re-sembles natural materials such as cobblestone, brick, tile and slate.
The release powder is the highlighter not the primary colorant in the concrete; coloring of the concrete may be achieved by using integral pigments or color hardeners. Which procedure to use should be determined by the final desired effect, conditions at the job site and preference of the designer. Integral colored produces a color through matrix while color hardener is a surface application. The advantage of integral color is that it colors through the thickness of the slab saves time and it makes for a cleaner finishing process.
