Are your coloring systems compatible with the overlay?

Yes. All 28 colors in our C Series integral color work well with our overlay. You may also stain or dye the material using our VIVID™ Acid Stain or QuickDye™.

When can I stamp Stamp-Tek™ Stampable Overlay?

Stamp the material when it is firm, not squishy. Unlike concrete, Stamp-Tek™ Stampable Overlay does not require heavy pressure or extreme tamping. Apply only enough even pressure to seat the mat and provide an impression. Allow 36 hours before foot traffic.

How do I remove the lines from the gauge rake?

Concrete Coatings, Inc. recommends the use of a funny or magic trowel.

How do I spread out and even Stamp-Tek™ Stampable Overlay?

We recommend the use of a gauge rake purchased from your local supply store.

What is Duraset™ VAE for?

The VAE primer is a specialty formulated vinyl acetate emulsion designed to be rolled or sprayed prior to application of the stampable overlay. Once the overlay is placed over the primed surface it re-emulsifies and properly bonds and strengthens the overlay to the concrete.
