We offer two types of Stamping Systems.
First is our Seamless Texturing System which produces a unique texture that has no grout or joint lines, giving you more creative control. The textured surface can then be scored or cut to impart pattern lines, or simply left as a large textured surface according to design requirements. Choose a brick, cobble or contrasting texture for a border to accent the main area.
Second is our Patterned Texuring System which imitates the texture and grout lines of natural stone, cobble, brick, and slate. These patterns are more aggressive and deeper than the Seamless Texturing System.
Both of these Systems are colored with a base Primary Color first, using one of two methods:
1.) Integral coloring (color added into the cement mixer)
- More cost effective approach in certain applications
- Eliminates mess and clean up costs inherent to method 2.
2.) Surface Color Hardener (dusted on and floated into the surface of the concrete)
- More vibrant color schemes can be achieved.
- Creates a stronger and more durable surface finish
Once it's ready to stamp the second color or colors are applied as a Release Agent for the stamps. The Release Agent is later washed off the surface to reveil a two tone antiqued look.
