How Is A Stamped Concrete Driveway Created?
- After the fresh concrete slab has been laid, Colour Hardener is applied andtrowelledinto the surface, thereby colouring the top 2 to 3mm of concrete. (Colour Through Concrete may also be used with the Stamped Pattern Concrete system)
- Experienced applicators then apply areleaseagent powder or liquid to create a contrasting colour and to stop the stamps from sticking to the concrete.
- Specially textured moulds are placed over the surface and applicators using their body weight and a tampering tool to press the design into the concrete.
- Three days later the surface is pressure washed (to remove any release agent or powder) and once dry, is coated with two coats ofHardsealsealer.
