Blacks and Charcoals
Buffs and Yellows
We can offer many different finishes to our colour depending on your requirements.
Smooth Finish Options include
DRESSED FINISH which is achieved by hand rubbing to produce a flat matt surface.
DELUXE POLISH FINISH (to top of unit only) which is a process that exposes a smooth finish to the concrete on the top face of the unit and exposes the aggregate underneath the surface (sides are dressed finish). It can be used to show the different colours of aggregate within the concrete to great aesthetic effect.
Textured Finish Options include
ACID ETCH FINISH which includes varying levels of texture applied by washing the units with varying concentrations of acidic solution. This can be from a light acid etch (similar to an ashlar sandstone/limestone finish) through to a heaver acid etch (similar to a picked/stippled finish).
EXPOSED AGGREGATE FINISH which uses various techniques to expose the aggregate to produce an interesting and colourful textured finish. Particularly useful to produce decorative solutions to slip hazards or anti vagrant criteria.
Images show the effect of the different finishes (dressed, acid, exposed and polished) on two examples of the same base colour.
