The Architectural Precast Concrete - Color and Texture Selection Guide is a visual guide to assist architects in the initial selection of color &texture for architectural precast concrete. This includes nine new color pages with two new colors per page, two pages of new form liners, & one page of new clay brick-faced precast. The guide is an extension of the information included in the architect-oriented Architectural Precast Concrete manual (MNL-122), illustrating more than 500 colors and textures for enhancing the aesthetic quality of precast concrete panels. Cements, pigments, coarse and fine aggregates, and texture or surface finish with various depths of exposure were considered in creating the 287 6.75-by-11.00-inch color plates, the majority of which display two finishes on the same sample. The materials used to produce the samples are identified in the back of the guide for handy reference. Three-ring binder with removable inserts.
When choosing the colors for your project, it’s important to note that the color of a real product may look slightly different than what you see on your computer monitor. Every computer screen or device renders color differently. Samples should be required to ensure that the desired colors and textures can be satisfactorily matched.
