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.
