Grace Construction Products and Davis Colors have agreed to form a distribution alliance. Grace plans to distribute Davis’ Hydrotint liquid color and Chameleon T liquid color dispensing systems to ready mix and precast producers in North America. “Our agreement with Davis will provide us with the opportunity to combine Grace’s leadership position in admixtures and fibers with the technology leader in liquid pigments,” says Wayne T. Smith, general manager of Specialty Construction Chemicals at Grace. “The color concrete market is one of the most active segments in the industry. Our goal is to increase the penetration of color in concrete and make concrete an attractive building material from an aesthetic as well as structural perspective.”
Davis Colors is a flagship brand of Rockwood Pigments NA Inc., one of the largest iron oxide pigment manufacturers in the world. Grace Construction Products, a business unit of W.R. Grace & Co., is headquartered in Cambridge, Mass.
