Antique & Release


Antiquing and Release are vital components for stamped and textured concrete. Release agents prevent concrete form adhering to texturing tools, allowing for clean impressions and imprinted designs. Antiquing is the process of adding naturally mottled and varied highlights to textured concrete, creating a more realistic appearance. Antiquing adds supplementary colors and enhances the appearance of depth.

Add depth and dimensions to stamped concrete while preventing pull-up and reducing wear on texturing tools.

At the same time, it adds antiquing and highlighting for more realistic, attractive stamped hardscapes.
