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.
Stamp-Tek™ Stampable Overlay
Concrete Coatings, Inc. Stamp-Tek™ Stampable Overlay is a dry polymer mix that creates the look of newly-stamped concrete over existing concrete surfaces. These overlays come in natural gray and work with color hardeners, powdered or liquid releases and acid stains. Stamp-Tek™ Stampable Overlay polymers are already in the mix, so there’s never a question of mixing integrity- just add water. DuraSet™ VAE resin is required as a primer/bonder for this product.

We recommend the use of a gauge rake purchased from your local supply store.
Concrete Coatings, Inc. recommends the use of a funny or magic trowel.
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.
