Decorative Concrete

Definition: concrete that has received treatments to create aesthetic effects. These treatments may include coloring, polishing, texturing, embossing, molding, etching, applying cementitious toppings, embedding items, or a combination of these. - ACI Concrete Terminology


Decorative concrete requires treating concrete in a variety of ways to increase its aesthetic appeal. Various materials are used to produce decorative concrete and the characteristics of these in achieving color and texture. These materials include: - Color hardener: Provides unique color coupled with a very durable surface. - Integral color: Can be used for practically any application and texture. - Chemical stain: Chemical stain creates artfully uneven, variegated, or translucent color much like that of natural stone.
