Historically, Colorado Hardscapes used color hardener primarily for stamped concrete. Color hardener acts as the base color for the stamped concrete, and Colorado Hardscapes uses a release agent to achieve a clean imprint and highlight color.
Although Colorado Hardscapes still uses color hardeners and release agents as standard practice for Bomanite imprinted concrete, the possibilities color hardener provides exceeds traditional stamped concrete. Color hardeners provide many design benefits. Colorado Hardscapes works with Bomanite to create custom color hardener colors when integral colors do not make practical sense. In instances where bright colors such as whites or blues are desired, color hardener is a more cost effective solution. Also, when a design calls for multiple colors in a small area, color hardeners minimize some of the costs of extra forming, smaller pours, and the risk of cracking off of tight corners.
