How is stamped concrete driveway created?
- Once the fresh concrete slab has been laid, Colour Hardener is applied and troweled into 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 Release Agent powder or liquid to create a contrasting colour and to stop stamps from sticking to the concrete.
- Specially textured moulds are placed over the surface and applicators use 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 of Hardseal sealer.
