Purchase Antiquing Release Concrete Colors

PROPOSED USE: Concrete Colors Antiquing Release is a non-cementitious productdesigned to be broadcast over the surface of plastic architectural concrete for interior or exterior surfaces that are intended for imprinting with mat type textured tools. During this process, high points on the texturing tools create depressed indentations in the concrete surface trapping the Antiquing Release, thus creating separately the colors of the Antiquing Release and the Color Hardener to produce a mottled variegated surface.

CHEMICAL COMPOSITION: Concrete Colors Antiquing Release is a unique blend of powdered materials specifically formulated to break the bond between mat type concrete texturing tools and the surface of color- hardened concrete. Because the pigmenting additives are of the highest quality obtainable, they are lime-proof and UV stable in sunlight or a lime environment such as concrete.

PACKAGING: Concrete Colors Antiquing Release is formulated and packaged in #30 plastic containers. They are available in all standard colors with no minimums or maximums. Because of the variances in raw materials and product design, colors may vary slightly from the color chart.

APPLICATION PROCEDURES: During installation procedures it is highly suggested that all work areas not directly affected by this product should be protected. All containers of Concrete Colors Antiquing Release should be equally distributed along the perimeter of the area to be applied. This product is the consistency of talc powder. To eliminate the drifting of the release, it is suggested that the broadcasting by hand and below the knees should be adequate for proper coverage. To prevent the adhesion of the mat-type tools for texturing the concrete, make sure an adequate layer of product exist between the surface and the mats. Timing is critical when using this product because of the factors surrounding plastic concrete, such as wind, heat, inclement weather, and other jobsite related situations. During the application of the product, if the antiquing Release is applied to concrete that is too plastic, it will become a permanent part of the concrete surface masking off the true desired affect. On the other hand, if this product is applied when the concrete is less plastic, the majority of it could be removed from the surface leaving an undesirable effect.

ANTIQUING RELEASE REMOVAL: To reduce the risk of staining or tracking into other areas, the majority of the Antiquing Release can be collected from the surface by brooming and/or vacuuming the imprinted surface after it has been allowed to harden so it is safe to walk on without marring the surface or texture created. The remaining Antiquing Release should be removed by a high- pressure detergent wash, followed by a thorough rinse until the desired affect has been achieved.

COVERAGE: Concrete Colors Antiquing Release coverage depends on several factors, such as application techniques, imprinting procedures, timing, tools, skill level, and other jobsite related conditions. Under reasonable conditions the product should maintain a coverage rate of 3-4lbs / sq. ft. or 700-1000 sq. ft. per #30 pail.
