Antiquing & Release Agents

Powder Release Agents are dusted over freshly placed concrete just before the initial stamping process is to begin. Powder release agent will not only act as a bond breaker for the stamps, but once the excess powder is washed off the following day, it will add a second coloring effect to the textured surface. Liquid Release Agents are used primarily when working inside and when using roller systems.

SikaColor®-300 Antiquing Release

SikaColor®-300 Antiquing Release is an odorless, high-performance, powder stamp tool release that adds color accents as it eliminates the suction created when stamp tools are lifted from freshly placed wet cementitious material. Once surfaces are cured, and excess release is removed, it leaves behind color accents that increase the contrast and perceived depth of stamp patterns. The remaining contrasting color allows artisans to create concrete that simulates the look of weathered natural stone, wood grains, cobbled roads, brick walkways, or aged concrete. 

  • Packaged in 30-pound (13.6 kg) plastic pails.
  • Compatible with integrally colored concrete and color hardened concrete.
  • Provides an additional accent color that is permanently embedded into the textured surface of the concrete providing a visually attractive antiqued look.
  • Coverage varies depending on timing, application technique, method of finishing, surface texture prior to imprinting, coloration effect desired, and other conditions. For most applications, the coverage rate is approximately 3-4 lb./100 sq. ft. which equates to 750-1,000 sq. ft. per 30 lb. pail. Experienced release applicators can achieve coverage up to 1,200 sq. ft. per 30 lb. pail.
  • Available in 14 Standard Colors.
