Scofield Formula One Liquid Dye Concentrate is a penetrating, translucent dye concentrate designed to color interior concrete surfaces prior to being sealed, densified, or polished. Designed for easy job-site dilution with acetone, the material will penetrate into the pores of properly prepared concrete; old or new. It can be applied lightly to gently tone surfaces or applied heavily to develop deep colors. Variations in application technique and topcoat selection can produce color effects that range from rich paint like jewel tones to light variegated natural effects. Not designed as a stand-alone floor finish. After application, it must be locked into the concrete with a premium concrete densifier prior to polishing, or sealed with a protective coating.
Features & Benefits
- Quick dry formula minimizes job delays
- VOC exempt carrier allows for immediate dilution in acetone or alcohol blend
- Resistant to color bleed from water based sealers & topcoats
- Small packaged concentrate for easy storage
Use to color to interior new or old concrete, overlay, or other cementitious surfaces where moisture is not expected. Ideal for floors, walls, ramps, countertops, and other concrete objects that will be polished or coated with clear protective sealers.
Coverage will vary depending on the porosity and texture of the surface, surface preparation, and application technique. The typical coverage rate is 300–600 ft2 per diluted gallon (7.0–15 m2/L). Additional coats will increase the color and opacity.
