Stamped Concrete our process
Nova concrete uses a liquid integral color that is added to the concrete before pouring. Base colors can also be added using a topical color hardener. A release agent is needed to prevent the stamps from sticking to the unfinished concrete. The Release agent often gives the concrete a secondary color for a more natural look. Once the decorative concrete has properly cured, we pressure wash and apply a protective sealant. This gives the concrete colors more depth while increasing durability and resistance to stains.
Kinds with different rates of absorption will certainly trigger surface areas with various tones of color. ... Concrete surfaces that are troweled prematurely will boost the water-cement proportion at the surface as well as lighten the color. Concrete which is not effectively or consistently cured may develop staining.
The color pigments used in colored concrete are UV stable and fade resistant and does not fade. The cement does however change tones during the curing process and as it ages in the weather.
Generally, colored concrete can be cleaned and maintained the same way as any other concrete surface. It is best to lightly clean stains with an approved cleaning product or soap. Many people who use colored concrete for indoor floors prefer to polish the surface for increased sheen.
