Brick Tinting: The Science of Colour

Completely transforming the look of a property is not as difficult and complex as it sounds; at least, not when you use brick staining dye from Twistfix. A comprehensive collection of brick staining formulas is available and here we present a quick guide on how to use them with the utmost effec­tiveness.

Brick Coloured Repair Mortar

Brick Stain Dye

Crack Injection Mortar

Brick staining dye allows you to quickly, easily and permanently change the colour of porous brickwork and is supplied ready-to-use. Within the formula are pigmented powders of superlative quality, dissolved completely in fixative fluid. Once applied, the dye is absorbed deeply into masonry pores, creating a strong integral bond that results in a natural, vapor-permeable finish.

Brick staining dye is a ready-to-use product that allows you to permanently change the colour of porous bricks. Formulated using high-quality pigmented powders, which have been dissolved in a fixative fluid, the dye is deeply absorbed into masonry pores. This creates an ultra-strong integral bond, resulting in a vapor-permeable, natural-looking finish.

Brick tints are a superb addition to our extensive range of colour-match brick repair mortars and crack-injection fillers.  The dyes are supplied in containers of 1L of formula, enough to dye around 20-25 square metres of masonry (dependent on required shade depth and masonry porosity). Throughout the staining process, the masonry texture is unaffected. A patch test is recommended before beginning, in order to ensure correct shade and coverage.

Though supplied ready-to-use, brick tint formulas may be diluted (to a maximum 2 parts water to 1 part formula) in order to achieve a lighter shade. The dye is simply applied with a brush directly to the face of each brick and left to dry, after which further coats can be added to deepen the shade.

There are several shades available, along with a brick staining soot wash and a limestone tinting dye. For further information on these products, check the website or get in touch with our team.
