Stamped concrete is concrete, patterned and / or textured or embossed like bricks, slates, flagsstones, stones, tiles, wood and various other designs and textures. Stamped concrete is usually used in patties, sidewalks, driveways, pool decks, and interior floors. Other building materials make a less expensive alternative to the use of similar stumped concrete, stamped concrete stone, slate or other other authentic elements such as bricks.
There are three methods used in stamped concrete, which differ from other concrete methods; Adding a base color, adding a pronunciation color, and stamping a pattern into concrete. These three methods provide stamped concrete with a color and shape similar to the natural building material. It is lasting longer than stagnant stone, and look similar to appearance.
Pattern stamped concrete surface shape Pattern reflects the natural building material shape. Concrete is drawn in a very short time after inserting a “concrete stamp”. Most modern concrete stamps are made of polyurethane, but old “cookie masters” style stamps are made of different metals. Old style stamps lack the ability to form natural stone texture.
The concrete stumping system uses concrete stamps to create stamped concrete pattern. Color release is applied after concrete stamp concrete is placed. Concrete stumps are pushed into concrete and then removed from the pattern in stamped concrete.
In most cases, concrete stamping common building products such as flagstone, bricks, natural stone etc. are found.
