Concrete Color Hardener Dry Powder Broadcast TruCast™
SureCrete’s TruCast™ concrete colored hardener is premixed, dry-shake, colored powder concrete hardener. It is used for coloring and hardening freshly placed concrete flat work to produce an aesthetically pleasing pavement with a surface that is substantially harder and more wear-resistant than regular concrete. This coloring method can be utilized for concrete applications (salt finishes, broom finishes, rotary finishes, etc.), as well as vertical surfaces and other types of architectural concrete.

Extensive quality control measures ensure uniformity of color and virtually eliminate color drifts.

Why SureCrete’s TruCast™ Concrete Color Hardener?
Our cement color hardener powder pigments have been formulated for better UV stability and longevity than is typically expected out of currently available color hardeners. Color Hardeners can be used to dramatically increase the vibrant color depth of any decorative concrete surface you are working with. Typically associated with stamped concrete projects, the use of dry powder color hardener can be a more cost-effective tinting product to use in lieu of integrally coloring an entire slab.
Here are some applications where you might expect to see Color Hardener:
- Stamped Concrete Driveways
- Outdoor Patios
- Fresh Poured Sidewalks and Walkways
- Harden Concrete Surface
- Outdoor Kitchens
- Commercial Pool Decks
- Theme Park Custom Stamping
- 3D Looking Concrete Views
How Do You Apply SureCrete Color Hardener Topical Powder Tinting?
(How to use Color Hardener before a Stamp Job)
Follow these simple instructions to apply your color hardener product:
- Color Hardener is hand broadcast evenly to the surface of freshly placed concrete when the concrete reaches the point where no bleed water remains on the surface.
- To develop the proper bond and sufficient density, the moisture for wetting the hardener must come from the concrete substrate. SureCrete Color Hardener applied in two shakes, with two-thirds implemented in the first shake and one-third in the second shake (holding back a small amount of touch up work).
- After the first shake, the surface floated. Do not trowel between applications.
- Apply the second shake perpendicular to the first application in a uniform manner.
- Float in and trowel to the final finish desired. Install construction or control joints as soon as possible.
- Care should be taken during hard steel troweling to prevent trowel burns, especially at tooled joints and edges.
