Colour manufacturers to the Construction & Paint Industries

Superfine Colours Company has been supplying Ochres, Oxides and Pigments to the construction and  paint industries since 1934.

Originally manufacturing only from natural oxides we now also offer an increasing range of products using high quality imported synthetic oxides, for a wide range of uses...

The use of coloured pigments in both precast concrete and mortar has brought a new dimension to the construction industry and some striking results have been achieved.

Natural Ochres and Oxides

We mine, process and mill our own range of colours, which are some of the finest quality to be found worldwide. This range is widely used in the paint industry, and in concrete products where more muted concrete colours are required, for example colours such as 'terracotta'.
