DCS Precast Concrete Colors are all pure mineral
pigments designed to be used specifically in cementitious
materials. DCS Precast Concrete Colors can be used for integral
coloring of concrete block, concrete floors, walks, patios,
driveways, concrete pavers, vertical precast, and poured
in place concrete construction.
Composition and Materials
DCS Precast Concrete 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, and mineral blacks 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 and
natural inorganic iron oxides are inert, stable to all atmospheric
conditions, ultra violet rays, alkalis and normal acid conditions.
They are sunfast, limeproof and absolutely free of any water
DCS Precast Concrete Colors are packaged in 50
pound bags or in batch sized bags as needed.
