Before applying a pattern stamping instrument, our technicians dust an antiquing release across the surface of recently colored concrete flatwork. The release product prevents the instrument from getting stuck to the concrete. As the tech pulls the tool away from the surface, the release dust layers into the concrete’s textured surfaces. After sealing and washing, the differences in color between the concrete and the release agent results in an attractive look. The extra color provides the appearance of more depth.
The amount of release product can vary along with conditions at the work site. The end results can range in between the color of the base concrete to the color of the antiquing agent. Usually, the resulting color is in between. Because the antiquing agent mechanically bonds instead of chemically, the surface requires sealing and maintenance to retain its appearance.
