|Antique Release Information
|* Colored to enhance any decorative concrete surface.
* Made with stable, UV resistant, streak-free, iron oxide pigments.
* 40 standard colors available.
One 30 pound bucket of Antique Release covers approximately 1000
square feet. The rate may vary slightly, but will be in the range of 3 to 4
pounds per 100 square feet.
Antique Release in used as a bond breaker in the stamping process. It
is dust-on powder with water repellent properties that helps prevent wet
concrete from adhering to the polyurethane Texture Mat. Antique
Release is also used as a coloring agent, leaving a portion of the color,
usually darker than the concrete color, embedded in the low points of
the newly textured concrete. This product should be broadcast in thin,
even coats that overlap just enough to produce a uniform layer on the
slab surface. Release powder can be thrown by hand or with a 6"
mason brush. Stamping can begin as soon as the release agent is
applied. Allow concrete to cure for at least 24 hours before removal to
prevent damage to the brand new surface. Removal is accomplished by
brushing then rinsing with a garden hose spray nozzle, light pressure
wash, scrubbing or buffing. Remove only enough to achieve desired
antique effect. Final color that matches color chart can only be seen by
sealing with a quality concrete sealer.
Non-staining acrylic, wax curing compound, or sealer is recommended.
Do not cure with plastic sheeting, membrane paper, or water misting.
Avoid sodium silicone type hardeners. Products no recommended
could cause discoloration or mottling of the colored surface. Allow the
concrete to cure for 28 days before sealing.
Sealing And Maintenance:
A quality sealer is recommended to protect the newly textured or
colored concrete surface. The concrete must be cleaned and thoroughly
dried prior to application. Inspect annually for areas of thin or traffic-worn
sealer and reapply as necessary.
