Through Mix: Through Mix pavers have color throughout the entire paver. Acker-Stone has the ability to manufacture solid colors or blends, with up to four colors in a single paver. The face of the paver is more coarse in nature than that of a Face Mix paver. It's important to note that with Through Mix pavers the shades and depths of colors will vary greatly.
Face Mix: The application of a layer of fine aggregate, cement and color to the top surface of a concrete paver is called a Face Mix. This process provides rich, vibrant colors, a smoother more refined texture and greater abrasion resistance.
