Dry-shake Color Hardeners come as powders that are hand broadcast onto the freshly placed concrete and then worked into the surface with a float or trowel. It is durable enough for high traffic areas. In addition to adding color to concrete, it makes a great base for stamped concrete.

PROLINE DURA COLOR HARDENER is a colored dry-shake hardener that is broadcast by hand over the top of freshly placed concrete and worked in with a wood float to form a dense, colored concrete ‘skin’ on the slab surface. Dry-shake color hardener is best applied to a concrete slab containing no more than a 4 inch slump and between a 5 and 6 sack per cubic yard cement content. This product is compatible with most admixtures, but avoid those containing calcium chloride. Apply PROLINE DURA COLOR HARDENER shortly after screeding and floating the new concrete just as the bleed water is coming to the slab surface. It should be broadcast by hand as uniformly as possible and then worked in with a wood float. Start with the edges first then work in toward the middle when broadcasting and floating. Most colors will go on with two shakes, or coats, followed by touch up but lighter colors may require three shakes. If the surface is to be textured, then a light troweling is recommended. Over-trowling will discolor the concrete. For a textured ‘antique’ look, a light hardener color should be paired with a darker PROLINE DURA ANTIQUE RELEASE and PROLINE TEXTURE MATS for stamping. It is always recommended that a representative job site sample be done to test the look of the color and texture combinations.
One 60 pound bucket of PROLINE DURA COLOR HARDENER covers about 100 square feet, but lighter colors may require a rate of 100 pounds per 100 square feet.
Curing: Non-staining acrylic, wax curing compound, or sealer is recommended. Do not cure with plastic sheeting, membrane paper, or water misting. Avoid sodium silicone type hardeners. Products not recommended could cause discoloration or mottling of the colored surface. Allow the concrete to cure for 28 days before sealing.
