SOLACHROME® Integral Coloring Treatment for High-SRI Concrete
A powdered fade-resistant concrete admixture used to create vibrant solar reflective colors that conform to LEED requirements for reducing the Urban Heat Island Effect
SOLACHROME® Integral Coloring Treatment for High-SRI Concrete is a patented solar reflective concrete coloring admixture. Its unique composition can permanently develop deep vibrant solar reflective colors that will stay cool longer and have reduced maximum temperatures than colors made from traditional technologies. Specified Colors made from SOLACHROME Integral Coloring Treatment can exceed the LEED v4 building material Solar Reflectance (SR) requirement of 0.33 or greater. This can allow colored concrete to contribute to earning LEED credits in the Heat Island Reduction category: Non-Roof for all BD+C categories.
SOLACHROME® Integral Coloring Treatment for High-SRI Concrete adds infrared light reflective color that is weather resistant, UV Stable, lightfast, and alkali resistant. It contains no materials that initiate, accelerate, or promote the corrosion of steel, coated metal, plastic, or rubber concrete reinforcements. It will not migrate from standing water, and can safely color concrete fountains, pools, water features, or concrete that will be polished and encounter damp or wet environments.
New Easy-Dose™ technology allows a single pail to accurately color mixes that contain 5 to 7 sacks of cement per yard of concrete.
