cccc '23430'
Easy to use and came out so pretty! I'm in love with my new floors
Amazing!
Covered really well. Exactly as advertised
I’m happy to say that switching to the white dye color allowed me to finish the concrete dye project successfully! I used the white and also mixed in some of the leftover black to make a gray color. The client is very pleased. I appreciate your help and will definitely use you all again soon. I posted pictures on Facebook and am getting rave reviews!
The cornhole game artwork was completed using the Basic Red and White Concrete Dye. When we pulled the adhesive template absolutely nothing came off, it went perfect. They still do not have a sealant, so will be even shinier when done but these are stunning… Thank you!
DCI Concrete Dye is easy to apply and creates unique looking floors with coloration that can’t be replicated with acid stain.
Thanks again for the help. Disaster to perfection. Your DCI Concrete Dye product corrected floor problems left behind by poor surface preparation after acid staining our floors. It’s exactly what I originally wanted. Looking forward to working with you on my future projects!
I’ve had so many compliments on our concrete dye basement floor project, and everyone wants me to do the same thing for them! The options with DCI Concrete Dye are endless, and the results are impressive. Thanks to the Direct Colors team for helping with our project.
Thank you for your time and information regarding gray Concrete Dye colors for my floors in my new home. Just wanted to thank you for all your help so far.

    Product Details

    Vibrance Dye is one of the most dynamic concrete staining options from Direct Colors line of coloring products. Acetone Dye is easy to prepare and apply using an acetone-grade pump sprayer. Great for all your smooth, polished concrete coloring needs.
    The raw form of the dye is a super fine powder that is dispersed in a solvent such as acetone which makes it one of the most versatile coloring products in the market.
    Our pre-measured Vibrance Dyes take all the guesswork out of mixing. Just determine how many gallons of dye you need for the job, and that's exactly as much acetone to get. Then, purchase the corresponding amount of dye.  The dry powder comes in sizes to make 1 quart, 1 gallon, 5 gallons, and 5 ounces. Add to your acetone, mix throughly, let sit for an hour, and you are ready to go.

    Step 1: Preparation

    • Cover areas at risk of over-spray with plastic drop cloth
    • Newly poured concrete must cure for 30 days before application

      • Remove paint or previously applied sealer using Soy Gel Stripper
      • Remove carpet glue or other adhesives using Bean-e-doo Mastic Remover
      • Remove oils, dirt, debris, Soy Gel Stripper, Bean-e-doo Mastic Remover, using a scrub brush and ProClean Degreaser™
    • Verify absorption by pouring a cup of a water in various areas. If not absorbed within 5 minutes, etch the surface with Hard Troweled Floor Pre-Treatment
    • Allow the concrete to thoroughly dry before Application


    Step 2: Application


    Coverage rate is approximately 150 square feet per gallon. Coverage rates may vary based on concrete texture, surface porosity, and application method.

    NOTE: Only apply Vibrance when surface temperature is between 40 °F (4 °C) and 95 °F (35 °C).

    Caution: Acetone is extremely flammable, harmful if swallowed, or inhaled. Keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. Store and use with adequate ventilation, allowing airflow to disperse vapors. Before applying Vibrance, open windows and doors and extinguish all open flames such as gas appliances pilot lights, candles, etc. Do not smoke, use a lighter or matches, or anything that could cause a potential spark.
