Abstract:
Reviews the principal means of achieving chromatic effects and points out the precautions which experience and tests indicate as necessary in the use of each method. Concrete can be colored with pigments, aggregate, penetration processes, or paints. The choice of the basic method to be used IS dependent on the requirements of color and finish, the type of service and exposure, and relative costs.
