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.

What color is concrete when it dries?

It is usually white in color . It is caused by movement of soluble salts within the concrete to the surface. It usually appears within a day or two after placement or as long as a month or two later.

Why is concrete different colors?

Forms with different rates of absorption will cause surfaces with different shades of color. … Concrete surfaces that are troweled too early will increase the water-cement ratio at the surface and lighten the color. Concrete which is not properly or uniformly cured may develop discoloration.

 

 

Does Coloured concrete fade?

What Is the Best Way to Care for Colored Concrete?
