DCS Mortar Colors are all pure mineral pigments
designed to be used specifically in mortar, whether
it be portland cement and lime, or masonry cements. DCS
Mortar Colors use is for integral coloring mortars.
Composition and Materials
DCS Mortar Colors are composed
of finely milled 95-99% minus 325 mesh inorganic synthetic
and natural iron oxides. Depending upon the color, different
combinations of natural yellow, red, brown and black iron
oxides, mineral blacks and carbons are blended with synthetic
red, yellow, and black iron oxides, and chromium oxide greens.
The natural iron oxides are dried, pulverized and classified
from mineral earth iron oxides (in a range of 50-80% iron
The synthetic iron oxides are manufactured by different
methods of calcination and precipitation of iron solutions
or oxides under carefully controlled conditions. These
processes produce roughly 93-99% pure iron oxides. DCS synthetic
natural inorganic iron oxides are inert, stable to all
atmospheric conditions, ultra violet rays, alkalis and normal
They are sunfast, limeproof and absolutely free of any
water soluble fillers.
DCS Mortar Colors are packaged in 50 pound bags
or in batch sized bags as needed.
DCS Mortar Colors are available in standard
colors. However, by altering the percentage of color added
to the cement, the potential color shades are virtually unlimited.
In addition, the color development and matching services
of the DCS Color Lab offer laboratory controlled custom blended
colors to meet your own special color requirements.
