On Tuesday, May 6, 2014 from 1:00 - 2:00 pm EDT, ACI will present an overview of the recommendations made in ACI 310 Guide to Decorative Concrete for the production of cast-in-place decorative concrete. This webinar will be presented by:

Cori Sutton, President of Diamond Designer Concrete, Inc., Vice President of Maya Brothers, Inc. and Treasurer of Baycrete, Inc. in Erie, Pa., and Larry Rowland, CSI - CCPR, LEED A.P., Manager Marketing & Technical Services at Lehigh White Cement Company.

The Guide is a comprehensive resource for contractors, designers, owners, and the public explaining the most popular methods of producing decorative concrete, which has become an increasingly large part of the overall concrete market. Contractors create dynamic finishes through the use of integral concrete colors, exposed aggregate, color hardeners, chemical stains, surface applied pigments and dyes, special textures, and polishing techniques. The Guide, assembled by veteran applicators, designers, and concrete professionals sets clear expectations for what can be achieved in concrete flatwork. The 60-minute program will outline the how the Guide is organized and touch on key materials and methods for achieving great looking decorative concrete. It is a must see for those new to decorative concrete and the seasoned professional alike.

Some things you will learn include:

  • Compare and contrast sample and mock-up panels
  • Discuss the sustainable attributes of decorative concrete
  • Learn the correct method of specifying polished finishes
  • Describe the role of sealers and surface applied coatings in polished and decorative finishes
