Our 90 premixed colours
All the colours are made with mineral pigments of the highest quality and fully adapted with cement and lime
Thanks to meticulously selected pigments, the colours are stable over time and are highly resistant to UV and weathering. The possible fading is not related to a discolouration of the pigments but are generated by the natural carbonation of lime and cement products
Systematic quality control
The production techniques and the control of the coloured materials ensure reproducibility of the colours from one batch to another, in the tolerance zone fixed by our colourists.
In order to stick as close as possible to any decorative requirements, special tints can be made on request.
Thanks to our library of colour charts, we can work directly on the universal colour charts like : RAL , PANTONE and NCS but also on all brands such as Chromatic , Tollens , Farrow and Ball , Little Greene , etc.
We are also able to match the tint of any real samples sent to us: concrete, tiles, marble, wallpaper, fabrics, etc...

On the worksite
Color differences on site are common and normal. They have several origins:
- The conditions for the use of cementitious and lime products are the main factor affecting the color of these products. A gap in the porosity of the support, a difference in temperature or even low ventilation, a different applicator, a thickness and a different are all risks of changing the setting time of the material and therefore creating colour deviations. And this on the same site.
- The proportions of mixing of components A and B and the amounts of water are finally to be strictly respected from one batch to another.
- The final color of a coating depends on its finish. The colour of the same material is different if the finish is rough or smooth, waxed or varnished, etc...
- The colour chart is common to all AD LUCEM materials but the composition of the products, the drying modes and the surface appearance are different from one to another. Therefore, the colours can not be exactly the same from one material to another.
