How will you prepare the floor before coating it?

Natural stone or brick effects and textures are achieved by utilizing rubber imprinting tool stamps, which are manufactured from molds created from authentic stone or wood, to impress into thin pre-mixed concrete overlay material. In order to prevent the stamps from sticking to the concrete, release chemical agents, which come in either a powder or liquid form, are then utilized to help separate the stamps from the concrete.
