Concrete Color Hardener Supplies
When properly applied and troweled into newly placed, concrete color hardeners form a colored concrete surface that is resistant to weathering, wear and normal abrasion. When contractors need a tough, easy-to-repair coating on a concrete walkway or area, they start with color hardener which becomes a very hard, very wearable surface.
Concrete workers value color hardener for its original function: making a concrete surface more durable and resistant to heavy traffic and other abuse. Hardeners have other practical applications in decorative work, too. When stamped, their dense surface holds clear, sharp impressions.
Color hardeners are made from cement, sand, and pigment, with finishing agents, wetting agents or retardants added to suit manufacturers’ preferences. The most important element in color hardener isn’t the pigment, it’s the sand. Quality sand should be hard and clean. The grains should have angular shapes or hard edges like crushed quartz.
