** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** SureBroom is the premier high-strength thin broom concrete overlay for extreme trafficked areas. Its formulation is designed to transform old, spalled, dull concrete to a freshly broomed surface. Typical areas requiring SureBroom include high rise parking decks, driveways, sidewalks, parking lots, and retail store fronts. Although designed to be broomed, it may also emulate the many designer looks of other thin overlays. SureBroom may be applied with a concrete broom or by a combination of compressed air spray equipment and/or trowel / squeegee. Restoration, repair, resurfacing, architectural accenting, surface protection, and creating slip resistance of existing concrete are all realized through SureBroom. Typical areas include parking decks, driveways, sidewalks, parking lots or any horizontal concrete surface requiring repair of spalled areas, low spots, etc. SureBroom is applied with a base coat using squeegees and then broomed. A finish coat is applied and broomed creating a slip resistant finish that is ready to be sealed to protect against staining. On irregular slabs requiring extensive patching, it is recommended to use Flash Patch and/or Deep Level.

    1. STAMPED CONCRETE

** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** SureCrete’s concrete colored 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. Extensive quality control measures insure uniformity of color and virtually eliminate color drifts. SureCrete Color Hardener, a blend of specially selected and grated hard aggregated, architectural cements, plasticizers and synthetic oxide pigment, produces a brilliant, streakfree, non-fading, wear-resistant surface. Our Concrete Color Hardener pigments have been formulated for better UV stability and longevity than is typically expected out of currently available color hardeners. Delete if not required.

        1. Product: Color hardener – freshly poured concrete color hardener as manufactured by SureCrete Design Products.
        2. Type: premixed, dry-shake, colored concrete hardener, a blend of graded hard aggregated, architectural cements, plasticizers and synthetic oxide pigment producing a brilliant, streak-free, non-fading, wear-resistant surface.
        3. Color: As selected by Architect from manufacturer’s offered colors.

** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** SureCrete’s stamped concrete 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, powdered release contains integrated iron oxide pigments that simultaneously provide 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. Powder release is fundamental to provide 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. Powder release will provide the rich contrast between the concrete’s base color and the release’s secondary color. The resultant two tone adds to the realistic look and desired antique effect for many different patterns. Delete if not required.

    1. STAINS

** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** SureCrete’s SureStain is not a typical concrete acid stain. It is made from a very mild hydrochloric or phosphoric acid solution, wetting agents, and metallic ions (salts), and specially formulated pigments. When applied on concrete or any cementitious topping the metallic ions chemically react with the free alkaline in the cement forming oxides that produce the color. Unlike dyes that produce an even color, SureStain produces the multi-hued, variegated, mottled look of natural stone. Earth Tones perform similarly to other reactive acid stains, but with very little residue at clean-up. Delete if not required.

      1. Low Residue Concrete Acid Stain:
        1. Product: SureStain as manufactured by SureCrete Design Products.
        2. Type: Mild hydrochloric or phosphoric acid solution, wetting agents, and metallic ions (salts), and specially formulated pigments.

** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Colors may be layered or alternated as desired. For crisp, distinct, and separate color changes, a score line should be utilized. Chemical stain will bleed across traditional masking. Shielding or masking at a score line will prevent the bleeding of colors as long as the stain is not puddled heavily at score lines.

        1. Color: Produce the multi-hued, variegated, mottled look of natural stone. As scheduled, indicated or required. Refer to drawings.

** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** SureCrete’s Eco-Stain uses an eco-friendly; water-based formula that contains zero VOC’s and has no pungent chemical aroma. Unlike acid stains which perform a chemical reaction once in contact with the surface of the concrete in order to achieve their color, Eco-Stain is a penetrating concrete stain which gives much more control over the design and colors you may want to apply on your project.

    3. STAMP OVERLAY / CEMENTITIOUS TOPPING
      1. Bond Coat: Begin by saturating area to be covered with water. Before application of bond coat, remove any excess water leaving no puddles. The surface should be saturated, surface dry (SSD). Place the bond coat with a squeegee and force into surface completely covering existing concrete with this slurry. Apply only in sections that may be covered with stamp mix while maintaining a wet edge.
      2. Stamp Coat: While the bond coat is still wet apply stamp coat. Mix water and integrally tint if required. Mechanically mix to a lump-free consistency. Use a gauge rake to apply stamp coat at 1/4 to 3/8 inch (6 mm to 9.5 mm), then steel trowel, fresno, or steel squeegee to a smooth and slick surface. Use surface retarder in hot and/or windy conditions to slow initial evaporation of surface. Allow stamp coat to set until material does not stick easily to the finger when touched, but yields to pressure.
      3. Apply stamps, texture to affect pattern desired. Use clear liquid release agent.
      4. Clean-up and detail double lines from stamping tools.
      5. Apply secondary coloring and 2 coats of selected sealer.
    4. SURFACE TREATMENTS
      1. Dry Shake Surface Hardeners:
        1. Hand broadcast evenly to the surface of freshly placed concrete when the concrete reaches the point where no bleed water remains on the surface.
        2. Do not spray water on the treated substrate.
        3. Apply in two shakes, with two-thirds being applied in the first shake and one-third in the second shake (holding back a small amount for touch up work).
        4. After the first shake, the surface is floated. Do not trowel between applications.
        5. Apply the second shake perpendicular to the first application in a uniform manner. Float in and trowel to the final finish desired.
        6. Install construction or control joints as soon as possible. Prevent trowel burns, especially at tooled joints and edges, when hard steel troweling.
    5. STAMPED CONCRETE
      1. Place concrete, screed, float with magnesium or wood according to industry standards. Allow bleed water to disappear and trowel with steel fresno.
      2. Add integral color before placing concrete.
      3. Apply stamps, texture to affect pattern desired. Use release agents.
      4. Add color hardener after concrete has been placed.
      5. 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. Keep masking in place during clean-up. Best results are achieved by leaving the release color in the lower recesses of patterns, especially grout lines.

      2. Earth Tone Application:
        1. Apply first coat with SP sprayer on dry surface using caution to avoid track lines from the spray pattern. A circular motion with the wand is desired. Earth Tones may be applied full strength or diluted with water to desired rate. The first coat may be brushed or brushed into the surface. Use color-fast, acid resistant brushes or brooms. If stain is brushed, maintain a wet edge, never allow a wet broom to drag across a dry slab, as it may leave a permanent streak or brush stroke.
        2. Areas that may call for brushing are sloped surfaces, slabs with “bird baths,” stamped concrete, and overlays. Do not walk on the wet surface. Footprints will appear darker than the adjacent areas. If stepped on by accident, the footprints should be brushed out immediately. Allow the first coat to dry to the touch.
        3. Apply second coat in the same manner as the first coat, as described above. Do not brush the second coat. Allow to dry overnight.
      3. Multiple Colors
        1. Colors may be layered or alternated as desired. For crisp, distinct, and separate color changes, a score line should be utilized. Chemical stain will bleed across traditional masking. Shielding or masking at a score line will prevent the bleeding of colors as long as the stain is not puddled heavily at score lines.
        2. Where both Earth Tones and Vivid Tones are part of the same application, apply Earth Tones first and complete cleanup before applying Vivid Tones.
      4. Translucent Highlighting Application:
        1. Allow stamp overlay or stamped to cure for a minimum of 12 hours before the application of highlighting. In cooler temperatures below 50 degrees F (10 degrees C) cure times may have to be extended. After drying sufficiently to be tack-free highlighting shall be sealed as scheduled.
        2. Thoroughly mix pigment to maintain suspension. Highlighting may be sprayed from a solvent resistant (Viton seals) pump-up sprayer. For very small areas, vertical surfaces, or intricate tight work highlighting may be brushed or sponged.
      5. Sealer:
        1. Two coats of sealer are required. The surface shall be clean, completely dry and at least 40 degrees F (4 degrees C) during the sealing application. To apply with roller use an appropriate roller sleeve. Apply one thin coat forcing the sealer into the surface. Allow sealer to dry, and then repeat the process with a second coat of sealer.
    8. PROTECTION
      1. Protect installed products until completion of project.
      2. Touch-up, repair or replace damaged products before Substantial Completion.
