First, the surface is ground and pressure-washed to remove dirt, loose aggregate, and paint, and open the concrete’s pores. A bonding agent is applied to provide adhesion, then a coat of modified cement mix is applied by trowel to provide maximum absorption into the pores of the concrete. Patterns are laid out using reinforced tape. When this coat is dry, the tape is pulled, revealing the patterns, and two or three coats of solvent-based cure and seal are applied using a roller. These coats penetrate and bond all layers to the concrete. When dry, these layers become a permanent part of the existing concrete, providing outstanding resistance to weather and stains.
