STAMPED CONCRETE

Stamped Concrete is a very popular choice for Florida driveways, sidewalks, walkways. 

Stamped Concrete brings color and texture to plain concrete and allows for textures and 3-D looks for residential and commercial concrete surfaces. Below you will find the stamped concrete supplies that we offer to help you color and texture your concrete surface.

We rent and sell Butterfield stamps. Call us for details

Integral Color

SurePour

Our 10-pound ready mix new concrete colors bags provide the contractor with a light, fast, weather-resistant, lime-proof, no maintenance finished product. SureCrete Design Products maintain the highest tinting qualities with strength and color material consistency from bag to bag. In our manufacturing plants, color is conveniently packaged in a disintegrating bag that disperses safely and rapidly into the cement concrete batch, making it better than most ready-mix color companies in the market today. Avoid a sign discolorations concrete by sealing your concrete with a high-quality sealer.

Color Hardener

SureCast

SureCrete’s SureCast™ concrete colored hardener is premixed, dry-shake, colored powder concrete hardener. It is used for coloring and hardening freshly placed concrete flat work to produce an aesthetically pleasing pavement with a surface that is substantially harder and more wear-resistant than regular concrete. This coloring method can be utilized for concrete applications (salt finishes, broom finishes, rotary finishes, etc.), as well as vertical surfaces and other types of architectural concrete.

Powder Release

SureTique

SureCrete’s stamped concrete powder release contains a specially formulated releasing agent that forms a moisture barrier between the stamping tools and wet concrete to allow the release of stamping tools. In addition to releasing agents, the powdered release contains integrated iron oxide pigments that simultaneously provide a secondary accent color to the concrete surface.

cs 250

CS 250

CS 250 is a 25% solids finishing membrane that enhances the curing process of freshly placed concrete and provides protection simultaneously. Upon application it forms a water retentive film that beneficially restricts moisture loss allowing concrete to reach its optimal cure and hardness, providing an economical alternative to costly, time-consuming water curing. CS 250 is a color enhancing, gloss coat helpful in preventing dusting, spalling, moisture and chemical migration through a slab and improves resistance to freeze/thaw cycles. It protects during the many phases of construction from incidental staining, UV protection, and abrasion resistance.

TK-AS1

TK-AS1

TK-ACHRO SEAL AS-1 1315 VOC is a high quality, clear, curing, sealing and hardening compound for new or existing concrete and masonry. The 25% solids and high quality acrylic/methyl methacrylate resin make this the premier cure & seal on the market.

Features:

• High quality resin provides moisture retention that exceeds that of any other cure/seal on the market.

• Penetrates into the surface and binds together the small dusting particles, filling the voids to produce a hard, dustfree and brighter surface.

• Maximum resistance to abrasion and damage caused by salt, oil, grease, mild acids/alkali, stains from soot, smog and gases, and ultraviolet rays.

• Construction debris will not adhere to the surface, making cleanup easier and less costly.

Super 30

Super 30

30% solids premium clear acrylic high gloss concrete sealer used to protect, waterproof concrete surfaces including concrete overlays. A great choice for concrete overlay protection for surfaces. This product helps stop efflorescence and moisture migration and is UV-stable.  Unlike other high-solids sealers, our Super 30 acrylic sealer is extremely easy to roll out onto any surface and applies a very even coating of material for superior protection.

Stamped Concrete Installation

1. Forming: Install formwork the same as any other concrete pour. Drive the stakes even or below the top of the formwork and make sure the formwork is square, especially for a square pattern.

2. Prep Work: Protect all surrounding areas with plastic, (ie. walls, shrubs, fences, etc.)Note: If using integral coloring in the truck, throw (1) SureCrete custom blended (By Sack mix) biodegradable bag per yard in the truck and follow approved mixing practices. (Step (4) is now optional)

3. Pour Concrete: Pour, screed and float the same as any other concrete pour.

4. Color Hardener: Roll the unopened Color Hardener bucket on its side. (Open and break any clumps by hand.) Broadcast the Color Hardener evenly on the surface without leaving any piles. (Broadcast about 75% of the Color.) Once the bleed water ceases and the color fully wets up. (Darkens up.) Use a wood, or mag float to work the color into the surface & edge it. Apply a 2nd coat of C/H, filling in any uncolored areas. When it wets up, float it in &edge it. Finish trowel or Fresno the surface to remove any low areas or trowel marks.

5. Release: Apply a thin even coat of Powder Release, using the same broadcast method as the C/H.(You can also use a masons brush) Only apply approximately (2) rows ahead of stamping. (Never trowel release.)

6. Stamping: Place stamp tools on the areas with release powder and walk them in until full texture is achieved (Use an impact tool “tamper” when necessary.) Continue running stamps, by lifting the earliest stamp placed and setting it in sequence. (Always stamp with a tool against a tool before moving) If the desired texture is not achieved, reset the stamp in the same position, and apply proper pressure. Use flexible stamps, & touch up mats against walls & columns. Avoid creating a vacuum when lifting tools by curling in the corners or edges of tools while lifting. Periodically check stamp alignment & adjust if necessary.

7. Detailing: After lifting tools use a chisel, S-tool or grout-wheel to fix any material that has squeezed up between stamps, or to continue any grout lines. Use the touch up mats where texture is lacking.

8. Washing off & Saw Cuts: Wash off the excess release the following day with a garden hose. (During cooler weather wait longer for the concrete to cure.) Normally concrete decides where it is going to crack the 1st 12-24 hours after the pour. Cut your control joints in ASAP ¼ the depth of the slab.(Maintain common concrete practices) Use a hand Grinder or chisel to touch up any grout lines, or squeeze joints not fixed during the stamp process.

9. SCR Wash: (1-3 Days later depending on temperature) Mix 1 part SCR to 5 parts water & spray the solution with an acid resistant pump sprayer. Scrub the slab with a broom (Your goal should be to get the heavy release off the tops of the stones, slates etc., areas where foot traffic would touch) Rinse thoroughly (Do not allow SCR to dry on surface) & try to achieve even color throughout the job. Repeat if necessary. (Release powder can be a bond breaker for the seal & should only be left in the recessed areas)

10. Release & Seal: When the surface is fully dried, use a paint brush,(cut down to a stiff bristle) to rub dry release powder, into any joints that need contrasting color. With a high velocity leaf blower, (preferably electric) blow off the extra release. Use a solvent resistant roller cover to seal the surface with one thin coat of SureCrete Clear Seal. Apply a second (thin coat) if needed. SureGrip can be added to the top coat of clear seal to help with a non slip surface.
