*8084 Supra-Instant® black #8084 reduces or negates the effect of air-entraining admixtures. Unlike other Davis Colors, Supra-Instant® black #8084 is a specially treated carbon black. Carbon black is the highest in tint strength and the most economical, but can fade if concrete is not sealed against water penetration. Sealing and periodic re-sealing can minimize the effect.

Uses: Davis Colors are used in cast-in-place, slab-on-grade, precast, tilt-up and decorative concrete; shotcrete, mortar, concrete masonry units, pavers, retaining wall units and rooftile. They can also be used to color cast stone, plaster, stucco and other cement-based construction materials. Designed for mix-in use only, they should not be sprinkled or dusted onto the concrete surface.
Installation: Integrally colored concrete is installed the same way as high quality uncolored concrete. Choose a color and specify it by name and color number. Dry color dosage rates range from 1/2 to 7 lbs. per 94 lbs of Cement and should never exceed 10% of the cement content. (Liquid dose rates are higher).
