If I use it with concrete as a border on my flagstone patio, will it stain the flagstones

Asked by: LA
As long as you mix it within the mix and you do not use more than what is recommended, then it should not stain the flagstone. If you have too much pigment in the mix then it could leach and stain when it rains.

How much sakrete for 3 yards

Asked by: jim
Thanks for your question. 1 lb. of cement color can be used for each 80 lb. bag. Each 80 lb. bag of concrete yields .6 cu ft. Given this you will need 45 80 lb. bags of concrete and 45 1 lb. cement colors for your project.

Is 1 Lbs of color enough to mix with 20lbs of Flo coat?

Asked by: SplitShot
That would actually be too much pigment. A 1 lb pack would be added to a 40 lb container and that would be the most that we would recommend. If you have a scale to measure it out then you could use half a pound for the 20 Flo-Coat.

1 lb. Cement Color Red is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use. Fairly economical option for small projects. 1 box gives you about 2 cups of color to work with. The instructions recommend 1 box per 80 lbs of concrete as a starting point for adding color. I used 1/4 cup with a 25 lb mix and it yielded a brick reddish color. Using less will give you a lighter color and stretch the product further. Adding more cement color may give you a darker shade, but another option to try would be mixing the red with the black or charcoal powder cement color in solution and add that to your cement mix. I would recommend a test project making smaller blocks or even garden stepping stones with varying amounts of the cement color (but exact same concrete mix you'll be using for your final project) to determine what shade you like. From there it would be easy to determine how much color you'll need for the final project. I used an outdoor acrylic sealer for a garden step stone, and a non-toxic sealer (rhymes with Bee wax) for a concrete bowl I made to be used indoors. I don't know if that's necessary. I just wanted a little gloss and added protection for the pieces I made. Fun to experiment, and I still have a lot left. This is very fine powdery stuff and there is a small amount on the inside and outside of packaging so I used mask and gloves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Produced a beautiful color for my concrete counter top I used this product to color my concrete counter top. My counter top was 5' x 3'. I only colored enough material to pack the first 1" of the counter top (pouring it upside down). Then I filled the back with uncolored, regular Portland gray concrete. That saved me some money and time. I put 2 boxes in one bag of Quikrete Maximizer to get the color I wanted. I turned out really nice. My wife loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This powder works better than the liquid! I started out using the liquid red color for my cement. The liquid was difficult to mix a consistent color from bag to bag. This Sakrete product comes as a powder. It was much easier to measure and produced a consistent color through about 20 bags of cement. The powder is much better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use. I can't find the color of grout I need, so I use this cement color to mix with the grout. It s easy to use, but it's not easy to clean.
