SPECTRUM 940 Shake-On Colorant is a silica aggregate-based colouring agent used in residential and commercial decorative concrete floor applications to add highlighted colours to the concrete. While SPECTRUM 940 Shake-On Colorant enhances concrete projects with permanent colour, it also serves to protect the concrete from normal wear, as well as weathering. SPECTRUM 940 Shake-On Colorant is ideal for use with stamped concrete hardscapes as it provides rich, colourfast surfaces.
SPECTRUM 940 Shake-On Colorant can be used on any horizontal, fresh concrete surface. SPECTRUM 940 Shake-On Colorant is available in 20 different colours, and can also be applied in combination with each other onsite to produce additional colour variations. Please contact a W. R. MEADOWS representative to view and discuss the colour selector chart.

16 Kg (35 Lb.) Pails
Approximate coverage is 2.9 kg/sq. m – 4.4 kg/sq. m ( 60 – 90 lb./100 sq. ft.). Lighter colours may require more material. Coverage is dependent on individual applications. Please contact a W. R. MEADOWS representative for further coverage information.
SPECTRUM 940 is designed for smaller decorative projects to create unique colour effects. For larger jobs requiring a single colour, W. R. MEADOWS recommends 785 GENFLOR NON- METALLIC FLOOR HARDENER.
One year in an unopened container, stored in a dry area away from moisture.
Surface Preparation … Prior to a full-scale application of SPECTRUM 940 Shake-On Colorant, an onsite test should be conducted utilizing the exact concrete mix design. Once the concrete has reached a point that no bleed water remains, open the surface with a wood float. The concrete should be placed, screeded, and floated prior to the installation of SPECTRUM 940 Shake-On Colorant.
Application Method … Broadcast SPECTRUM 940 Shake-On Colorant from the container, over the entire surface. Care should be taken to broadcast the material low across the surface to prevent air currents from separating the material. For optimum results, apply in two applications. Apply the first application by broadcasting two-thirds of the recommended dosage onto the surface, allowing it to wet out thoroughly before working it in with a bull float. The remaining one-third may then be applied following the same procedure. To achieve the most uniform colour, the floor should not be overworked. SPECTRUM 940 Shake-On Colorant must be worked in slowly, carefully, and uniformly for proper distribution and depth of colour. Allow the colorant to wet into the surface of the concrete prior to floating.
NOTE: DO NOT WATER CURE OR COVER CONCRETE TO CURE, AS THIS WILL CAUSE DISCOLOURATION.
Cleanup … SPECTRUM 940 Shake-On Colorant cleans up with water.
