One of TAKTL’s defining qualities is its ability to be formulated in an expansive range of colors. All panels contain pigments that are UV-stable and specifically engineered for use in Ultra High Performance Concrete. Pigments are integral and consistent throughout the material matrix, and both custom and standard pigmented panels are tested rigorously for weathering.
We have developed nine standard colors based on the natural, mineral palette of our raw materials. With adequate lead time, there are options to formulate custom colors for quantities in excess of 7,000 square feet.
Custom colors are formulated by our color specialists utilizing lab-scale equipment, molds, and curing chambers in our Materials Lab. Unlike mixing paint colors, the process of formulating TAKTL colors requires considerable expertise, time, and internal resources, often involving multiple rounds of mixing, casting, and curing to achieve the final result. One round of custom color formulation is provided free of charge for projects in excess of 7,000 sq. ft. of TAKTL material. Each round of color sampling produces two 6” x 6” samples and requires approximately eight weeks of lead time. Certain formulations will require additional time for weather testing. To specify a color for sampling, please provide physical samples of other materials, Uncoated Pantone® numbers, or Sherwin Williams® or Benjamin Moore® paint sample references.
