  • Color Chart colors shown are approximate. Color may vary based on each concrete mix and conditions. Colors vary from computer monitor to computer monitor as well. Colors with an * indicate they will be achieved by using two bags of color- for example for Charcoal* you will receive two bags of color and will use both bags into 1 yard of concrete, Greystone you will receive 1 bag of Desert and 1 bag of Pewter which you mix together to create the Greystone, etc.

    Product Detail:

    • Powder integral color for concrete, TrueHue Pigments.
    • Superior permanent, non fading oxide pigments for concrete, stucco, plaster, curbing, and other cementitious mixes.
    • Pre-bagged color for 1 yard of concrete*.
      • Most colors are 20lbs of pigment per yard.  Black is 30lbs per yard, and so cost a little extra for the extra amount needed.
      • *Except White Titanium Oxide which we sell by the 10lb bag.  White Titanium is often added to White Portland Cement to make it bright white instead of natural white- usually used for countertops/sinks/showers/furniture.  Dosing White Titanium Color is usually 1lb of color per 20lbs cement.
    • Comes in a dissolving paper bag- just throw the bags into the concrete truck and have them mix it in for a few minutes to break the bag down to nothing and spread the color for a nice, uniform integral color.
    • NO fillers or additives to jack up the price!  Just good, clean, pure color from natural and synthetic metal oxide pigments..
    • Evenly dispersed, consistent, streak-free concrete color throughout the concrete mix.
    • Repeat-ability -- batch-to-batch and project-to-project.
    • Note on colors: TrueHue Black is UV Resistant, made of full oxide, unlike some 'black' pigments out there that fade to light gray over time!  TrueHue Utility Red color is specially colored for Utility Casement Identity concrete needs (many building codes require specially colored concrete marking conduit and electrical power lines) 
    • Suitable for all types of colored concrete projects- such as stamped concrete, countertops, furniture, sinks, floors, driveways, landscapes, cast-in-place or precast walls.
      • If using this color for small batches of concrete, such as countertops, please note that most countertop mix recipes have a higher percentage amount of Portland Cement, and may require more of the Color Powder than 'normal' concrete used for a driveway or patio for example.  One bag of this color will usually treat @28 bags of 80-lb concrete from our Concrete Countertop Recipe Page.
    • HOW MUCH DO YOU NEED?  
      • TrueHue Color is packaged PER YARD so you do not have to worry about any math except making sure you have the same number of bags as yards of concrete.  (A few colors that may require more than one bag per yard are identified in the description). As a general rule to calculate yardage, plan for each yard of concrete occupying 80 square feet when doing a standard 4 inch pour. So if you measure for your pad and it’s 20 feet by 30 feet, then multiply 20 times 30 and get 600.  Divide 600 by 80 and get 7.5 yards.  They will round up to 8 to deliver the concrete, so order 8 bags of the color you want.
    Product Specifications:
    • Coverage: 1 qty of TrueHue Color will color 1 cubic yard of concrete* (of normal 5-Sack or 6-Sack concrete), or approx. 25 bags of 80 lb. concrete. (*White Titanium color is sold in 10lb bags, and not designed to treat a yard of concrete)
    • TrueHue Color will weigh different based on which color you pick.  Lighter colors are 5lbs of TrueHue pigment each, medium colors are 10lbs of TrueHue pigment, and the darker colors are 20lbs of TrueHue (which will usually be 2x 10lb color sacks).  For example, Charcoal Color is 20lbs of TrueHue, which is actually two of the 10lb bags of Dove.  Doubling up some of the medium colors creates the darker color.
      • Countertop mixes with have a higher cement ratio than normal concrete, so some  you must calculate color to cement only, don't account for anything else like sand/gravel.  A typical 'yard' of concrete, 5-Sack mix, has 5 sacks of portland cement (94lbs each) in it, 470lbs of cement total.  So each TrueHue color you buy will treat 470 lbs of cement.  If you concrete countertop batch has 20lbs of Portland cement in it, then you would use 470/20=23.5, or 1/23 of the TrueHue color amount into each countertop batch.  Easiest way is to just weigh the color on a scale, and for example if you got the color 'Sage' would be 5lbs of TrueHue Color.  To add this to a countertop batch with 20lbs of Portland cement in it, you would add 1/23 of 5lbs, which is 5/23= roughly 0.22 lbs of color.
    • To fill small voids and air pockets with the same color, mix the TrueHue Color to the Cement Slurry in the same weight ratio (only the weight of cement- not the sand/aggregate).
