Interstar Integral Color for Ready Mix


Why use Banas Concrete for your ready mix concrete color?

Color is here! Banas Concrete Service is now manufacturing integral color to be used specifically in ready mix concrete.  You can use it in your concrete patios, pool collars & driveways.  You can also pre-order any of our pre-cast concrete products with a color, or purchase the color on it's own in the disintegrating bags. 

The Iron Oxide Granular pigments have many great advantages you just can't pass up. 

  • Highly concentrated granular iron oxide pigment microbeads are free-flowing & disperse readily upon being added to the ready mix concrete to develop a full tint strength.

  • You use less weight because they are highly concentrated, which results in less expensive color.

  • It's permanent

  • It is non-fading (sunfast)

  • The permanent color is weather-resistant.

  • The pre-measured color is dispensed into disintegrating bags that are thrown right into the drum of the mixer for easy & clean use.

  • The color is manufactured right here in Ludlow, MA at our ready mix concrete plant along with your concrete.

  • The color can be added to any concrete mix.

  • There are a wide variety of colors.  We have many preset colors you can choose from including various color manufacturers to match.  If you bring us a sample we can create a color that is identical using our state of the art technology & equipment.

  • It is convenient.  You don't have to worry about accurate measuring, the dust or liquid mess, having to find or match the color you are looking for, or picking up the color or shipping costs from the manufacturer.

  • The color does not freeze and is not limited by shelf life or settlement issues.

  • It will not dry out and can be used in mixes that cannot accept additional water & do not limit your water in your concrete.

Above is a link you can find a 4 page PDF color brochure.  It shows all the colors you can choose from and some tips on how to use the color.  These do not include custom colors that we can create as well, so please let us know if you do not find a color you are looking for and we will get it.  We can create any color from any ready mix color manufacturer.  Don't hesitate to ask.  We also have samples at the plant.  If you would like to view them, or sign a sample out to bring to a customer, please call the office 413-583-8321 & ask for Dan or Jessica.
