Permacolour Colourwash is a coloured acrylic compound used mainly on horizontal concrete and masonry surfaces to add a highlighted transparent colour to the finished product.

• Concrete floors, coloured or ground

• Imprinted concrete where the clear liquid release was used or coloured liquid release was washed out

• Imprinted concrete where the powdered release was not strong enough

• Exposed aggregate

• Permacolour overlay finishes


Before applying Permacolour colour Wash, all hard troweled concrete surface must be acid washed.

Mix 1 part of colour wash to 38 parts of water (250ml to 19 litres of water). This is a guide only, you can add more or less depending on the depth of colour required, but we recommend starting with a smaller amount and add as required. Dampen down the area to the stage where it is just about to puddle.

Pour colour wash on the concrete surface using a watering can or bucket. Use a squeegee to spread the colour wash over the area. It is best to do a small test area first to make sure you have the colour at the required strength and adjusting it accordingly before applying to a large area. Once completely dry the surface can be coated with the appropriate Permacolour concrete sealer.
