We've spent quite a bit of time preparing for the launch of TiqueWash, our new antiquing colorant for stamped concrete. The motivation for developing TiqueWash was to give our customers an alternative method for creating a two-toned finish on stamped, textured concrete. While the Translucent Color Enhancer is still the best solution for restoring exposed aggregate (among other things), we are excited about the user-friendliness of TiqueWash and its ability to be installed in direct sunlight without leaving brush marks.
Come and see us at the World of Concrete in Las Vegas, NV on Feb 5-8th. We will be doing demos and meeting with anyone that has questions about any of NewLook's concrete stains, sealers or other products we offer. Our Booth # 40645 outside in the Sliver lot that is across the street from the South Hall, we're the black canopy among all the white ones. So come over and see us.
Not much, but always remember that it is absolutely critical that the surface is prepared correctly, otherwise, NewLook will likely have adhesion problems. Typically, pressure washing is all that is required to open up the surface pores. The rule of thumb is that if there is anything on the concrete that would prevent NewLook from penetrating (sealers, paints, "cure and seal" agents, dirt, oil, grease, glue, gum, etc.) then that substance needs to be cleaned off or removed before applying NewLook.
Use a pressure washer with 3000 PSI and a capacity of 4 gallons per minute. Use a 15° or 25° fan tip (never use a 0° tip). Do not bear down on the concrete as it can change the surface texture. Keep in mind that there is a big difference between simply hosing off the concrete and really pressure washing it well. In areas where pressure washing is not possible, a floor-scrubbing machine with a cleaner is acceptable. Use a mild cleaner that contains no acid.
Hard-troweled or polished surfaces are generally too dense to allow NewLook to penetrate. Use NewLook EcoAcid or QuickEtch to profile the surface. It is important to thoroughly rinse off any remaining residue or dust before applying NewLook.
There are many different types of decorative concrete stain. Don't settle for what your near-by supplier pushes just because he's local. Take time to get informed before you buy. It could mean the difference between a temporary decorative concrete floor and a beautifully stained concrete floor that lasts!

There is a big hairy monster lurking around your business. He’s not easy to detect and he has a real nasty habit of stealing from you. The monster I speak of is called “slack” and if you don’t learn to rub him out, he will eventually make an irreversible impact on your bottom line.
Slack is simply another word for waste and inefficiency,
particularly as it applies to the supplier-customer relationship within the
vertical supply chain; he can surprise you at just about any point and manifest
himself in numerous ways. Miss-specified purchase orders. Employee accidents.
Wasted product. Slack could be just about anywhere. To better understand who
slack is and how to contain such a beast, you must . . .
