Does your house look like a patchwork of different coloured bricks?
It is often the case that the failure to blend bricks adequately during repair works or the building of extensions leaves a property looking rather dishevelled.
The technique of brick tinting by applying oxide-based pigments in a potassium silicate solvent to give a colour-fast stain to the surface of brick masonry has been widely used for more than half a century to address just this issue.
Brick stain dyes the masonry to produce a permanent modification of surface colour. The brick tinting solutuion is supplied with a selection of powdered pigment dissolved a potassium silicate fixative solution. Simply shake and use. Our brick-coloured dye is absorbed into porous bricks and stones, where it forms a lasting chemical bond to stain masonry a permanent natural colour of your choice.
In contrast to masonry paints our comprehensive range of brick-staining dyes do not alter the surface texture of the brickwork or stone masonry and are vapour permeable, allowing masonry to breathe. For a lighter shade the staining solution can be diluted, using a maximum of 2 parts water to 1 part brick stain, to produce up to 3L of brick dye at maximum dilution.
