Frequently Asked Questions
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 colour chart or existing concrete or stone.
Won’t concrete treated with Hatcrete® Colourmix fade or appear streaky?
No, all pigments used in the manufacture of Hatcrete® Colourmix are UV stable. Unlike raw pigments, our unique formulation gives consistent uniform colours from pour to pour and is not detrimental to the concrete mix. In fact, Hatcrete® Colourmix actually enhances normal concrete through the use of WRA’s and workability enhancers.
What is the dosage rate for each cubic metre of concrete?
Hatcrete® Colourmix is packaged in an inner water soluble bag that goes straight into the concrete mixer; one bag colours one cubic metre of concrete – the formulation is altered to take into account the specified mix design.
