ANTIQUE RELEASE is an economical alternative to traditional releases. It is a dry-shake material applied directly on top of concrete, COLOR HARDENER, or COLOR-CRETE prior to stamping. ANTIQUE RELEASE contains a specially-formulated releasing agent that forms a moisture barrier between the stamping tools and wet concrete. Once applied, the imprinting tools can be released easily. Colored ANTIQUE RELEASE contains integrated iron-oxide pigments that add color and depth to the stamped surface.
ANTIQUE RELEASE is a must when placing textured concrete. It creates an essential barrier that prevents suction when removing the stamping tool, and results in a finished product without the need for touch-ups. A colored release will result in a rich-looking antique appearance. A two-tone effect that accents and highlights the stamped concrete can be achieved using various combinations of colors. A darker color applied on top of the color hardener will recess into grout lines and provide deeper textures.
ANTIQUE RELEASE is packaged in a 35 lb (15.8 kg) pail.
