SureTique is a stamped concrete powder release agent. Its hydrophobic properties create a moisture barrier between the stamping tools and freshly poured concrete.
As a dry shake material, it is broadcast directly on top of the concrete to be stamped. It is recommended only for stamped concrete, as opposed to stamp overlay. Powder release is fundamental to provide the release for stamping tools from concrete. The moisture barrier prevents the stamping tools from creating “puckers” at the surface that greatly detract from the finished product.
SureTique will provide the rich contrast between the concrete’s base color and the release’s secondary color. The resultant two-tone added to the realistic look and desired antique effect for many different patterns.
The grout lines of grouted patterns will always reflect the antique release powder color in the preferred sharp contrast to the more dominant base color. Customarily the most realistic coloring is achieved through the application of a darker powder release color than the base color of the concrete.
Instructions for SureTique application:
- The slab is ready when the final troweling prior to stamping is complete.
- Loosen and fluff-up the powder release in the pail prior to broadcasting.
- Broadcast powder release in a sweeping or casting motion evenly across the area to be stamped. Only broadcast enough powder release to stay a row or two ahead of the stamping tools.
- After the slab is sufficiently cured, carefully sweep up and contain excess powder release. Rinse the remaining excess with hose equipped with trigger nozzle and soft broom.
