Bomanite Con-Color is a tinted, non-toxic, odorless, hydrolyzed lithium quartz compound that penetrates into concrete and cementitious toppings, reacting to form a hard, abrasion resistant permanent crystalline structure. Bomanite Con-Color will allow the concrete or topping to breathe, permitting moisture vapor transmission, but retards the transfer of damaging and discoloring alkali materials. When applied to concrete, Bomanite Con-Color will provide variegated and translucent coloring effects without creating a film or coating that can be worn away. Bomanite Con-Color is a viable alternative to traditional acid-based stains when a larger color palette or ease of installation is required. Bomanite Con-Color is an excellent design choice for plazas, walkways, entertainment venues, graphical signs and vertical surfaces.

• Prevents free-moisture migration
Bomanite Con-Color offers the kind of versatility traditional concrete treatments can’t match and can be combined with our Imprint Systems, Toppings Systems, Custom Polishing Systems or Exposed Aggregate Systems to create architectural concrete that is nothing short of breathtaking.
Capt. Petersen Splash Pad – Multiple Bomanite Color Hardeners
Bomanite Licensee, Harrington Bomanite Corp. installed multiple colors of Bomanite Color Hardener to give this splash pad a fun and entertaining feel. The splash pad at Watson Park was designed by Warner Larson Landscape Architects of Boston. Working with the Landscape Architect, Harrington Bomanite was able to suggest the best Bomanite products and system for the design to come alive. Bomanite Color Hardener provides the durability and strength needed to withstand climate changes.
The colorful, 4,000-square-foot play area in Watson Park, named after tugboat captain August J. Petersen, features mist sprayers, squirt guns and structures that spray water from the ground or dump it from overhead. Petersen was from Braintree whose generosity is legendary in the community. When he died in 1963, he left $65,000 to the town to build a swimming pool at Watson Park, a grassy recreational area on the bank of the Fore
River, in the neighborhood of East Braintree, where he had lived. For nearly half a century, residents squabbled over where the pool should go, while Petersen’s gift sat in the bank and grew to about $2 million.
Decades later, Petersen’s dream has been realized, at least in part. On April 2, Braintree officials broke ground on a “splash pad” at Watson Park that has been named after Petersen. The town is also planning to build a pool and ice rink in honor of Petersen at Braintree High School with the remainder of the money.
