Penetrating Sealers are used as the finishing touch for the decorative concrete process. Applied to protect and beautify your concrete. Sealers come in matte finish, semi-gloss or high gloss finish. Anti-slip additive can be used in the sealer to provide traction on the smooth stamped surface and is highly recommended for wet or icy conditions.
Integral concrete color
Choose whether you keep the concrete standard grey and add a colored release powder to highlight the impressions in the concrete or add an integral color into the concrete mix right from the plant. This is the base color for your concrete and will be seen throughout and highlighted by a contrasting or similar color release powder.

Concrete stains are used in different ways to produce alternative designs in your concrete;
Water based stains- as either an antiquing application, water based stains are used and applied to highlight the impressions and give the concrete an antiqued look. Also used to provide a variety of colors in the concrete if depth and contrast is desired.
Acid Stain- Used to burn color into the top layer of concrete to provide a base color to the concrete after the pour rather than using an integral color during.
Hand Decorative Staining- Used to highlight certain stones or stamp locations to provide a variety of color.
Choose whether you keep the concrete standard grey with a clear release agent or a colored release powder to highlight the impressions in the concrete. This is the accent highlighting color for your concrete and will be seen in the impressions of the concrete highlighting the grain or veins in the stamp design.
