How Do You Apply SureCrete’s stamp overlay Texture Bag Mix?

SureStamp can be manipulated for a wide range of finished textures, but here’s how you get started:

  1. Any surface receiving a cementitious coating must be clean, cured, sound and profiled. See our Surface Preparation products for more information on accomplishing this
  2. Make sure that temperatures will remain between 50 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit and there will be no precipitation in the applied areas for a 48 hour period following application.
  3. Add Approx. 3.5 quarts water per 50 lb bag to 5 gal bucket and mix in any color desired for integral coloring of SureStamp stamp cement overlay.
  4. Slowly introduce SureStamp while continuously mixing and mix for a minimum of 1 minute once all product has been emptied into container. Scrape the sides of the bucket to make sure there are no “dry pockets” that didn’t get mixed properly.
  5. Mist the surface of the concrete with water ahead of any areas about to receive SureStamp stamp concrete overlay.
  6. Before SureStamp can be applied, a coating of SureBond must be put down to ensure proper adhesion of the finished surface. Pour a generous ribbon of SureBond onto the surface and spread with squeegee over an area that corresponds to your next workable area of SureStamp
  7. While the SureBond is still wet, pour the mixed SureStamp onto the surface.
  8. Gauge rake the product to the appropriate height for selected texture/carving pattern (usually between 1/4″ and 3/8″).
  9. Smooth the surfcace of product with a metal squeegee or similar tool.
  10. Allow product to begin to dry, yet remain plastic. The surface will lose its wet sheen and yield to the touch with very little, if any, sticking to the finger.
  11. Surface is now ready to receive a stamp pattern or custom carving. Be sure to use a releasing agent on any tools used to manipulate the surface, and to clean releasing agents off of finished surface before next step.
  12. Once the surface has dried and cured sufficiently (approx 6-8 hours), it can accept stains and secondary colorants, and is also ready to receive a sealer. Typical outdoor applications would utilize a acrylic sealer from our SureSeal line of products.

So long as it has not become hard, you can use a product like Surface Delay to allow for more work time on your surface. This will only slightly delay the process however – timing is everything with SureStamp stamp concrete overlay.

What if I want a custom stamp or carved design with SureStamp?

Custom carved patterns require only your imagination and a proper carving tool. If you want a pre-made texture stamp, contact your local distributor for more information on where to acquire stamping tools.

Color Hardener
SureCrete Color Hardener is premixed, dry-shake, colored concrete hardener. It is used for coloring and hardening freshly placed concrete flatwork to produce an aesthetically pleasing pavement with a surface that is substantially harder and more wear-resistant than regular concrete. This coloring method can be utilized for concrete flatwork applications (salt finishes, broom finishes, rotary finishes, etc.), as well as vertical surfaces and other types of architectural concrete.

Powder Release
SureCrete Powder Release contains a specially formulated releasing agent that forms a moisture barrier between the stamping tools and wet concrete to allow the release of stamping tools. In addition to releasing agents, powder release contains integrated iron oxide pigments that simultaneously provides a secondary accent color to the concrete surface. As a dry shake material, it is broadcast directly on top of concrete to be stamped. It is recommended only for stamped concrete, as opposed to stamp overlay.

Integral Color
SureCrete Design Products’ concrete colors are pure, synthetic, iron oxide pigments containing no fillers that will affect the performance of the concrete mix design. SureCrete Design Products’ concrete colors applications provide the user with a lightfast, weather resistant, lime-proof, no maintenance finished product. SureCrete Design Products maintain the highest tinting strength and color consistency from bag to bag. Each batch is custom formulated for each job.

Color Packs SureCrete Design Products’ Color Packs are conveniently pre measured to individually tint any single bag mix in the SureCrete Design Products’ line. All Color Packs are pure, synthetic, iron oxide pigments containing no fillers that will affect the performance of the bag mix being tinted. Color consistency is maintained from Color Pack to color Pack. These packs are the simplest way to integrally color your stamp overlay bag mix to your intended color design.

Eco-Stain is an exciting alternative to typical reactive acid stains. There are no acids or harmful chemicals integrated in its design. Since no chemical reaction takes place, there is no extended waiting time for color to reach full development. Cement substitutes will not affect color, unlike reactive acid stains that are dependent upon alkalinity to create a chemical reaction. Eco-Stain’s in blues & greens will not spot black in the presence of moisture and are UV stable.

Eco-Accent is a water-based, non-hazardous, zero VOC, UV stable coloring agent that bonds to any textured concrete or cement-based surface including overlays. A single color, boring, lifeless, concrete can be transformed into a multi-colored, antiqued, variegated, surface. Restoration of old, dull, weathered stamped concrete or textured overlays may also be accomplished through application of Eco-Accent. It is a great product for stamp concrete overlay.
