Decorative Concrete Institute Dyes

Still Going Strong!

We have recently decided to not pre-mix the water-based dye (why pay to ship "water").  The water-based comes in concentrate form, just as the solvent-based is in powder form.  The pre-mixed water-based dye that is in stock, we are selling it at a very discounted price to clear space in the warehouse and empty the shelves.  Pricing:  1-G Regular Price:  $39.00 On Sale for $24.00 and 5-G Regular Price:  $140.00 On Sale for $85.00.  Place your order today to take advantage of the pricing. Call DCI at (770) 562-1441 or toll-free at (877) DCI-8080.

Even more exciting News.  Exclusively at your Kemiko Distributors, they will soon be stocking the new skim coat line,Terra Fresco Powder and Terra Fresco Liquid (a.k.a. TFL-1100) by Bob Harris.  Also on their shelves will be Kemiko Dyes by Bob Harris (solvent-based and water-based).  Stop by Kemiko's booth during World of Concrete to learn of the venture with Kemiko, new products and visit with Bob.
