Our Tru Impression Liquid Release product has been specially formulated to work in tandem with our stamped concrete texture sets and skins. This combination allows you to create the ultimate in beautiful concrete coloration, textures and finishes for your hardscaping project.
How to Use It
Apply a light coat of Tru Impression Liquid Release evenly across the surface of the skin(s) being used to create your stamped concrete texture. Be sure to overlap the edges of the seamless skins by approximately 4 to 6 inches to ensure even coverage and consistent impressions.
How to Clean It
Once you’ve achieved your desired impression, it’s time to remove the release agent from the concrete surface. This process can be done by hand using a soft brush or a sprayer wand.
Powdered Release for Stamped Concrete
A popular choice for many contractors is to use powdered release agents. These powders are composed of cement, iron oxide pigment for color and moisture repellant that keeps the water in concrete from clinging to the stamp. They are applied after the concrete slab has gelled but before final troweling.
However, powdered release can leave streak marks if applied incorrectly, according to contractor Richard Smith. It’s also more difficult to apply than a liquid release, and it requires more safety measures for those working on the job.
