LITHOCHROME® Color Hardener
What is LITHOCHROME Color Hardener:
LITHOCHROME Color Hardener is the ready-to-use, powdered dry-shake hardener used to add color into the surface of freshly placed concrete. It produces a hard, long-wearing, abrasion-resistant surface.
LITHOCHROME Color Hardener used in conjunction with LITHOCHROME® Antiquing Release (available in the same colors shown below) is the ideal coloring system for creating realistic, professional quality stamped concrete surfaces.
Due to heightened surface density the color-hardened concrete has improved resistance to the effects of freeze-/thaw cycles and de-icing salts. It is ideal for pedestrian or vehicular traffic areas such as malls, retail stores, restaurants, sidewalks, streetscapes, driveways, hotel lobbys, car parks, both indoors or out.
Where to use LITHOCHROME Color Hardener:
Base color for stamping or texturing concrete
Compatible Cures and Sealers:
COLORCURE® Concrete Sealer
Coverage rates vary with intended use and application. LITHOCHROME Color Hardener should be applied
at a rate of 50 lb. (1 bag) per 100 sq. ft. except where indicated by an asterisk (*).

Please note: concrete colors shown are approximate. Due to shade variations associated with individual color monitors and printers, we
suggest utilization of our literature request form to review an actual LITHOCHROME® Color Hardener Color Chart. We strongly recommend
that a test slab be poured and approved prior to starting the job. Test slabs should be poured replicating jobsite conditions.
LITHOCHROME® Antiquing Release
LITHOCHROME® Antiquing Release is an odorless, high-performance, colored, powder stamp tool release. Use it to improve the ease of separating concrete stamp tools, embossing skins or texturing tools from the freshly placed concrete or cementitious materials they imprint. LITHOCHROME Antiquing Release adds variegated color to the imprint, and can increase the perceived depth of stamp patterns.
Apply LITHOCHROME Antiquing Release to the entire surface to be textured immediately prior to stamping. Its hydrophobic nature will help prevent the wet cementitious material from sticking to the pattern tool, and improve print quality. See Tech Data Bulletin A-854 for full application instructions.
