Our company was founded and is headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, with our production in Kansas, our Asia head office in Hong Kong and distribution partners all over the globe. The C² brand is currently present in over 40 countries and we are consistently uncovering new opportunities for expansion. We pride ourselves on our global network or, what we like to call our “C² Family.”

Our dedication to making cost-effective, planet safe and easy-to-use high performance products is the foundation of our business. Lithium technology is the superior platform for many of our concrete products and Crete Colors continues to improve and develop innovative system solutions that will inspire architectural concrete design well into the future.

what we do

Our Business

Since the early 90’s, our team has been focused on concrete treatment, densification, coloring, grinding and polishing. We knew early on that the industry needed to provide a technology that offered surface color treatments and more effective concrete solutions than the traditional potassium and sodium based products.

Our answer was lithium.

A cutting-edge technology that Crete Colors used to develop and offer a number of high quality and eco-friendly concrete surface hardeners, densifiers, colors and maintenance systems.

Through new system processes and application techniques, Crete Colors continues to raise the bar for concrete performance as well as creating new decorative treatments for concrete surfaces.

What we believe in

C² Planet Safe

Crete Colors is a powerful and dynamic global company. Together with our local partners we are passionate in making a difference in this world. The construction industry is seeing more and more of a push towards sustainable practices. With that in mind, C² has dedicated itself to reducing our carbon footprint, which many of our competitors have not yet committed to. Our company recognizes its duty as a global citizen – we pride ourselves on tailoring our products to be sustainable from production to application. Through arduous research and development, we have discovered how to maximize production and application efficiency.

Today, the buzzword of “going green” has grown in popularity. As much as green practices are of importance to us, being honest in our business is one of our guiding principles. Only two products in the C² portfolio are considered hazardous because of their unmatched performance; the rest are completely planet safe. In that case, we are almost 100% “green” but truthful about it.

Crete Colors is very proud that our local partners have the same values, standards and objectives as we do have here in the United States. Our entire C² Family, worldwide, is devoted to reducing any negative impact on the environment. By offering a true “green” lithium technology, we influence companies globally to utilize water based and planet-safe products in their projects. Crete Colors International is also a proud member of the U.S Green Building Council, SCS and NSF certified.

The Crete Colors International Worldwide Tradition & Trademark

When Crete Colors International first started, one of our customers sent us a snapshot of a recent project they had just completed with their country’s coin sitting upright on the surface, reflecting perfectly on the finished concrete. Immediately we knew that this idea would not only be a tradition that we would follow but a worldwide trademark of our brand. Over the past few years we have been collecting coins from all over the world where C2 projects have been completed. Crete Colors began, as a family owned business and we value the concept of a global tradition.
