In trying to get more data on why stamped concrete contractors are liking Kel-Crete Premium Liquid Admixture we came to find one big reason was due to our water retention factor of 96.7%. There is no bleed water, but there is a nice slurry surface that allows for improved stamped patterns, higher density, and virtually a waterproof surface.
In some cases the contractors are also using our Kel-Prime mixed 50/50 with water and applied over the completed stamped concrete. Kel-Prime is a curing/hardening/sealing/bonding agent as well as being fire resistant. The average mix design is 4 to 5 ounces per cubic yard of concrete. See attached photos of completed stamped concrete.
