If you’ve ever looked at a colored concrete surface and marveled at the brilliance and durability of the color, it was probably integrally colored. But what does that mean? What differentiates integrally colored concrete from other methods, such as painting and staining?

  1. Integral pigments color the entire slab. While stains and dyes may penetrate into the surface, they won’t go far beyond that. Paint just sits on the surface, leaving it vulnerable to a whole host of issues. An integrally colored slab will maintain the same color on all sides and throughout, keeping color in the face of damage and wear.

  2. Integral color is more durable. As long as the concrete is around, it will have color. Surface wear can deteriorate stains and dyes. Paint can flake and chip. Integral color will withstand use, abuse, and time, maintaining a brilliant appearance for the life of the structure.

  3. Integral color is perfect for the long haul. Unlike paint, it never needs to be reapplied. Integral color stands the test of time and abuse better than stains, without the necessity of sealers (though a quality sealer can still be a benefit to an integrally colored surface). Once the concrete is cured, you can look forward to years of sustainable, environmentally friendly, worry-free beauty.

  4. The pervasive nature of integral color as makes for a more attractive result. Paint covers and obscures. An integral color provides a more natural color. Integral color is also essential for decorative concrete. It will not obscure decorative details such as textures and stamped patterns, nor will it hide the stones or sands in an exposed aggregate finish.

For best results, do your research, first. Look at our galleries to see examples of integrally colored concrete projects to decide what you want. When you find a quality, local contractor (a Solomon Colors distributor is a good source for finding one), work closely with him or her to make sure realistic expectations are set and the project is carefully planned. Keep in mind that color can be affected by a myriad of factors including the concrete moisture level and the natural color of the raw materials.

Distributors and concrete producers around the country use colors from Solomon Colors’ color card, making them easy to use and acquire. Solomon Colors Dry Integral color allows concrete producers to provide you with consistent, streak-free color in each Ready Mix truck for your project. Our integral colors pair very well with decorative products from our Brickform and Legacy divisions.


Expectations – Due to variations in regional cement and sand across the country, concrete color may not match the color card as exactly as paint. Final color will be within the same color range, but may end up with a slightly different shade because the color is part of a homogenous product, with the cement, sand, and aggregates. This homogenous nature also means the color will be more durable, longer lasting, and more sustainable than painted concrete surfaces.

Integral color is the best way to color concrete because it is durable and long lasting. However, it is important to set realistic expectations when using colored concrete. The finished project may not have the exact shade of the color card, though it will be close. Because the color mixes with the concrete, which may vary in composition by region and jobsite, the final shade is affected by make up of the concrete. This will, however, result in a much more natural appearing, durable, and sustainable coloring solution than paint.
