Color Matching

Eventually, one of your architectural salespeople is going to bring in a sample of concrete from another producer and ask if your operation can produce it. Don’t worry, because you may not be able to get an exact match, but you can certainly take a stab at it without tying up profitable machine time. Percentage out your closest matching architectural mix design to a 500-gram representative batch and adjust your pigment loading as needed. If you’ve got a vibrating table and a form, you should be able to simulate your consolidation. Put the samples on a blank pallet in your curing chamber and when the cycle’s complete, see how close you got to the salesperson’s sample. There are some nuances that need to be addressed when sample matching, so if you need help contact NCMA Production Specialist Mike Maroney.
