If your test patch is too dark you can dilute your tint solution…
|Simply transfer the tint solution to a suitably sized container, measure out 500mls clean water and add this to the tint solution.|
|Add the contents of a Fixing Agent Pot (C), stir thoroughly and test again.|
|If the test patch is still too dark, then you can add a further 500mls of water...|
|…then add the contents of the third pot of Fixing Agent and test again.|
|You can then try the tint on a
larger sample, or if you feel confident then start tinting your masonry.
If you do not feel confident enough to start on your brickwork or masonry then try practising using just clean water, this will give you a good ‘feel’ for how the tint will perform. However, remember to let these areas fully dry out prior to carrying out any tinting work.
Please note: If you need to dilute your tint solution even more, then you can purchase extra pots of Fixing Agent from the Dyebrick Online Shop.
Dyebrick should not be applied to damp or wet masonry.
Although Dyebrick works on most brick types, we recommend that you try our sample pots first, to ensure that the desired colour and shade can be achieved and that the dyes can 'fix' to your masonry.
DAMP MASONRY: Dyebrick should not be applied to damp or wet masonry. Dyebrick is not suitable for application to horizontal surfaces subjected to wear.
HIGH TEMPERATURES: The recommended temperature range in Fahrenheit for applying Dyebrick is between 60 and 85 degrees. Dyebrick should not be applied if the temperature is above 95 degrees. Dyebrick should not be applied to brickwork exposed to direct sunlight when the temperature is above 75 degrees.
LOW TEMPERATURES: Dyebrick ideally should be applied in warmer weather. However, if using in winter-time then it should only be applied when the temperature is 40 degrees on a rising thermometer.
STONEWORK: Dyebrick is only effective in colouring certain types of stonework. Trials need be carried out to assess the suitability and compatibility with your particular masonry. Some masonry types are very porous and also have high psv's (polished stone values) which make them difficult to tint effectively.PLEASE NOTE: The Dyebrick Lifetime guarantee only applies to brickwork and does not apply to stonework.
CONCRETE: It is possible to colour certain concrete units, but not many. Trials must be carried out first to assess the suitability and compatibility with your particular masonry. Please note that the Dyebrick Lifetime guarantee only applies to brickwork and does not apply to concrete.
HORIZONTAL SURFACES (PATIOS or PAVED AREAS): Dyebrick colour stains are not recommended for horizontal surfaces. The level of durability on horizontal surfaces will depend on the type and quality of your masonry, the degree of exposure to the weather, residual ground moisture, mechanical wear (traffic), accidental spillages, de-icing salts and various domestic cleaning activities. Because of all these variables Dyebrick is not able to provide a guarantee for any of their products used on horizontal surfaces.
