How can you make an ordinary concrete slab virtually indistinguishable from a fine brickwork floor? A unique surface forming method makes it possible. All that are needed are a special brick-design paper pattern and a dry shake color hardener. The paper pattern comes in rolls 36 1/2 inches wide by 500 feet long and can easily be cut with scissors to fit the slab width. The pattern is embedded in the concrete with passes of a float before the color hardener is applied. When the pattern is removed, areas covered by it remain uncolored and slightly indented, resembling mortar joints. Because the process uses no special tools, stamps, or molds, it saves time and equipment costs compared to inlaid brick or pattern stamping.
