HATCRETE® Adcolour is a colouring additive for cementitious materials. It provides uniform streak free colour with minimal wash down of mixing equipment. Unlike powder pigment, HATCRETE® Adcolour disperses completely and rapidly into any concrete mix.

Special properties

It is stable in the presence of lime and sunlight and contains no chlorides. Raw pigment and concrete dye particles are refined, granulated and coated in a unique product that aids dispersion and produces colour consistency in concrete.

It is available in 23 standard colours and custom colours are available to order. All the pigments used in the manufacture of HATCRETE® Adcolour are UV stable and conform to BS EN 128 78 : 1999.

Usage instructions

HATCRETE® Adcolour is supplied in 20kg bags and dosage rates are typically 1% to 3% based on the cement content. Colours are matched to our Colourmix range. It can be used in place of traditional cement dye or concrete pigment. Concrete coloured with HATCRETE® Adcolour should be cured and sealed with Hatcrete sealing products to obtain the best performance.

HATCRETE® Adcolour is ideal for:


  • Coloured concrete mortars
  • Coloured concrete precast units
  • Coloured paving slabs
  • Concrete countertops and bespoke concrete items
  • Smaller batches of any type of coloured concrete

Approximate coverage

Adcolour is supplied in quantity for manufacturers to add on a weighed basis to the pre-determined cement content and shading required. It is advised that sample testing is carried out using the local materials.
