Colour Hardener

HATCRETE Colour Hardener is a coloured, dry-shake, cementitious product for colouring and surface hardening freshly placed concrete. It is typically used for decorative concrete and stamped pattern imprinted concrete

It produces an attractive, coloured, wear resistant surface and offers a decorative and interesting alternative to plain grey concrete.

During the development of this product, samples were rigorously tested at Aston University for impact and abrasion resistance with excellent results. The improvement over normal, concrete can be up to 24 fold.

  • Available in 20 standard colours.
  • Custom colours made to order.
  • Packaged in 25 kg water resistant bags.
  • Dense, fade resistant coloured surface.
  • Quality assured to BS EN ISO 9001:2000.
  • Pigments used conform to BS EN 128 78: 1999.

Freshly placed concrete surfaces treated with HATCRETE Colour Hardener may be trowelled to a smooth finish or given a light texture.

The surface may also be imprinted to give the appearance of cobbles, pavers, setts, bricks, tiles, flagstones or custom designs. It is ideal for architectural design projects, requiring a coloured, decorative floor area with hard wearing properties. Pattern Imprinted Concrete is a hard wearing, minimal maintenance alternative to tradtional paving techniques. This method of producing hard wearing, decorative concrete is known as pattern imprinted concrete, or “stamped” concrete.


HATCRETE Tekstain can be used to highlight areas which are coloured with HATCRETE colour hardener to create artistic and dramatic design effects.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much will one 25kg bag of Hatcrete® Colour Hardener cover?

To achieve consistent and uniform colour whilst producing a good w/c ratio ensuring durability over time, one 25kg bag should typically be used to colour around 8m2 of concrete. Coverage rates may vary depending on colour, on site conditions and final intended use of the paved area.

Will a treated surface chip or break down?

The inclusion of graded quartz means that abrasion and impact resistance is significantly increased compared to normal concrete. Independent tests have shown our Hardener shows a 24 fold improvement over normal concrete in abrasion resistance tests.

None of the colours match the shade I am after, can you make me a bespoke colour?

Subject to a minimum order, we offer a colour matching service where bespoke colours can be produced. These can be matched from a RAL number, colour chart or existing concrete or stone.
