DECORATIVE CONCRETE SYSTEMS A DIVISION OF SOLOMON COLORS, INC. Colour Hard™ Concrete Topping and Hardener Characteristics and Applications PRODUCT DESCRIPTION Legacy Colour-Hard is an engineered blend, used to color the surface of new concrete. When applied, a dense layer is formed, making the concrete surface more abrasion and impact resistant. Legacy Colour-Hard is available in 20 Classic Series and 8 Signature Series colors and custom color matching is available. Legacy Colour-Hard is manufactured with the finest UV-resistant pigments and premium aggregates available. Legacy Colour-Hard is designed to work with imprinting tools to produce clear, sharp impressions that enhance the finished appearance of any new hardscape. When properly applied and troweled into newly placed, fresh concrete, it forms a colored concrete surface that is resistant to weathering, wear and normal abrasion. USES • Legacy Colour-Hard is used in the construction of new concrete flatwork and floors. It can be troweled and broomed, or imprinted, using Legacy texture mats and Legacy Accent-Liquid Release. Create the look of expensive materials such as handset tile, brick or quarried stone with by using a powdered release like Legacy Accent-Colour Release, in a contrasting color. The color-hardened surface can also be stained, after the concrete has been allowed to cure for approximately 28 days, with Legacy Fresco Stain or Tinte D’ Acqua, water based stain.
