Solomon Color System Color SelectTM

Colored concrete can be used to create a striking effect around your home or property while increasing your property’s value.

Color concrete can be stamped to look like brick, wood, tile or stone at a much lower cost while providing greater longevity. You can combine subtle shades of colors, textures and stamped patterns. You can also use multiple colors side by side, score joints and saw cut patterns to visually break up large areas such as driveways, walkways, patios, and pool decks. Color will add appeal and ambiance to any property.

We can produce concrete in a wide range of colors: from various shades of gray and warm earth tones to vivid colors that range from warm to deep and dark – almost any color you can imagine. We can create hundreds of standard or custom color blends while maintaining a consistent color from batch to batch. Our computer-controlled system greatly minimizes human error. Your mix will be stored in our system, so if you need to match a color a year later we’ll have the exact specifications on file.

New generation in concrete reinforcement

Why should fiber reinforced concrete be used as temperature-shrinkage reinforcement instead of wire mesh? Plain and simple, the three-dimensional fiber reinforcement is proactive. Wire mesh is in a single plain of the concrete whereas the fibers are throughout the concrete working to enhance its long-term durability.

Applications for Fiber Reinforced Concrete:

Residential interior and exterior slabs-on-ground

  • Driveways
  • Patios
  • Sidewalks
  • Swimming Pools
  • Swimming Pool Decks
  • Basement Floors
  • House Slabs
  • Decorative Concrete

Benefits of Fiber Reinforced Concrete:

Why a 3-dimensional reinforcement works better than wire mesh

  • Reduces plastic shrinkage cracking and plastic settlement
  • Modifies micro-macro cracking of the hardened concrete
  • Eliminates need for wire mesh for secondary reinforcement
  • Reduces permeability
  • Increases impact resistance
  • Increases surface abrasion resistance
  • Increases fatigue strength
  • All of the above adds up to less maintenance and longer life

Choosing fiber reinforced concrete means you have selected current generation engineering technology. Fiber reinforcement starts working the minute the concrete is placed in the forms and works for the life of the concrete. Fiber reinforcement does not rust, rot or corrode. It is a lifetime companion with the concrete.

Hot Weather Concrete

Hot weather can lead to many problems in mixing, placing and curing of concrete. Hot weather is defined as any combination of high ambient temperature, high concrete temperature, low relative humidity, solar radiation and wind velocity. The effects of any combination of the above can lead to rapid evaporation of moisture. This is is the primary cause of plastic shrinkage cracks, thermal cracking, permeability and decrease in compressive strengths. Hot weather can also affect water tightness and uniformity of surface appearance in concrete. An effort should be made to keep the concrete temperature as low as practical. The easiest way to keep concrete cool during hot weather is using ice in place of some of the water during batching. Ice added during batching will extend the concrete setting time during hot weather. This allows you more time to finish your concrete as desired.

Hydration Stabilizer (sometimes referred as Retarder) Hydration Stabilizer is a chemical admixture that is used during hot weather. It will improve workability during placement and slow the rate of setting time, thus giving you more time to finish your concrete. Retarder will also lower the rate of heat evolution and increase compressive strengths. Retarder is often used with ice to achieve maximum desired effects during hot weather concrete pours.

Cold Weather Concrete

Non-Chloride Accelerator

Is a non-corrosive, non-chloride admixture. It accelerates hydration, which results in shorter setting time and increases early compressive strengths. This is often used during cold winter-weather concrete placement. This additive is added at the plant during batching.

Calcium Chloride

Acts the same as a non-chloride accelerator but it is not recommended for use where there is reinforcing steel, metal decks or electrical conduit. This additive is added at the plant during batching.

Hot Water

Hot water is added at the plant during batching when cold weather is present. Hot water accelerates set up time and strength. Cold weather concrete usually starts during the fall and continues until spring. Cold weather is defined as a period when, for more than 3 consecutive days, the following conditions exist: 1) the average daily air temperature is less than 40 degrees F. 2) the air temperature is not greater than 50 degrees F for more than one-half of any 24-hour period. The average daily air temperature is the average of the highest and lowest temperatures occurring during the period from midnight to midnight.
