CASE STUDY

Strip failing color and sealer from concrete, so it can be renewed.

The Project

The color and sealer on this stamped concrete was failing, so it had to be removed. 

The color in this concrete was non-integral. The business owner used his DB500 Mobile to remove the topical coloring and the old sealer. 

Next, he recolored the concrete with a gray color, and antiqued it with black. Finally, he sealed with new sealer.

”The color in these pours were not integral. Blasting removed the topical coloring along with the old sealer. Used a medium gray for coloring, then antiqued it in black. The pads were then sealed with Deco Guard 25% high gloss sealer. The finished photos give the appearance that it’s very dark, however in person it has a dark slate appearance.”
