NATURAL APPEARANCE AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
This technology is irreplaceable in the United States and European Union. In the United States alone there are 435,000 stamped concrete companies. Since there are strict environmental regulations in the United States and European Union countries, the use of natural resources is under strict control. By imitating nature, stamped concrete enables you to meet with environmental regulations, on the one hand, and to fulfill the constant human need for attractive and natural appearance, on the other. Stamped concrete has exceeded the existing limits. This product protects the environment and simultaneously keeps in line with the quality of natural materials.
QUALITY AND DURABILITY
-Durability of shape
Stamped concrete is made of reinforced concrete additionally reinforced with polypropylene fibers and color hardeners. Due to the quality of its structural elements, stamped concrete functions as a unified whole – this means that: no cracking due to overloading can occur between the joints, no vegetation can penetrate the surface, no protrusions or indentations are possible. This material remains the same even under the weight of 40 ton trucks.
– Durability of colors
Color hardeners and release agents used for stamped concrete construction are made by combining natural metal oxides and inorganic components in strictly defined proportions. Thanks to this technological innovation and special mix design, shades and colors of stamped concrete can be preserved.
According to Mohs’ scale, stamped concrete has a hardness of 4, as measured by teams of experts. MB-30 concrete has a hardness of 1, diamond 10, and quartz 7. There are not many materials left which could damage stamped concrete. This is one of the reasons why stamped concrete has a longer service life compared to other technologies.
– Slip resistance
Stamped concrete has a low friction coefficient because of its hardness, which enables maintaining of slip resistant qualities over time. Safety is guaranteed even for inclinations of up to 17%.
– Preliminary works
Preliminary works, such as soil excavation, substrate reinforcement in several layers, or drying of soil, are not necessary for stamped concrete construction. Stamped concrete can be placed directly on old concrete, asphalt or any other existing hard substrate.
– Rate of construction
Stamped concrete construction is ten times faster than for other flooring systems, which enables timely completion of works. This is extremely important when construction in downtown areas or main roads is concerned, because this reduces traffic problems.
