Patterned Concrete - Marciapiede Patterned (stamped) concrete is an innovative system. It is applied on streets, parking area, ramps, walkways, thematic parks, patios, terrazzo and swimming pools. It is possible to create an art by using various models of molds and it is possible to offer various architectural possibilities.
Patterned Concrete - Marciapiede Stamped concrete is another common technique of decorative concrete. It literally involves stamping a pattern and/or texture into freshly laid concrete. That being said, stamped concrete requires that new concrete is poured. This isn’t to say that you can’t add a stamped pattern or texture to your existing pavement/walkway, it just requires a few intermediate steps.
Patterned Concrete - Marciapiede Composition of materials: 95% local (sand, gravel, cement and water), 5 % to be imported It helps to save/avoid destruction/spoil of mountains due to marble quarries
Patterned Concrete - Marciapiede Any color Any finishing Any pattern
Patterned Concrete - Marciapiede evidences of 22 years lifetime in Sicilian towns with similar weather of Tripoli no trace of any repair due to excavations (pipe, cable, etc) price is competitive 34,500 LD/sqm (installation included) on top of standard concrete base 200mm against 42,000 LD/sqm cut-to-size sandstone on top of standard concrete base.
POURING CONCRETE LEVELLING CONCRETE APPLICATION OF HARDENER SMOOTHING APPLICATION OF RELEASE POWDER STAMPING WITH CHOOSEN PATTERN EXECUTE JOINTS SURFACE WASHING APPLICATION FLOOR SEALER
Patterned Concrete - Marciapiede Before concrete can be placed, the site needs to be prepared. The concrete will arrive in a ready mix concrete truck and will be poured Once wet concrete has been placed, a large board is used to screed the top of the concrete. Colour hardeners are applied to the surface of the concrete. They are used to add colour to freshly poured concrete.
Patterned Concrete - Marciapiede This screeding process helps compact and consolidate the concrete, and begins the smoothing and leveling of the top of the concrete. Then there is the application of release powder. It will avoid that stamps stay attached to the concrete. Time to stamp with chosen pattern. Finishing takes place, joints and edges are worked into the concrete with special hand tools.
Patterned Concrete - Marciapiede It follow the washing phase to rinse the surface from left dust. Application of sealer complete the work. Sealer for concrete floorings, is specific formulated to give e excellent resistance to agents atmospheric, to water, to frost, to industrial fumes of medium aggressiveness ( acid and basic), to oils, to muffs, to salts, to the diluted acids, to the alkaline solutions, to infrared and ultraviolet rays ecc.
Patterned Concrete - Marciapiede It can be implemented with thickness varying from 7mm up to 25mm. It can be colored with concrete acid stain. Very strong, excellent adhesion, very easy to apply. Very hard, water resistant. Optimum resistance to usage and abrasion. Very hard, nonslip surfaces are obtained, decorated and colored with colors that resist in time, long durability with resistance to abrasion, chlorine, salts, grease, oils, acid diluted solutions, water resistant. Easy to clean with high pressure water jets and, when needed, using detergents normally sold in commerce.

PoorGood Excellent Speed of installation Stamped concrete can be poured or pumped into place without the need to place individual units. It takes about five days to install a 600m2 stamped concrete sidewalk vs. 10 to 12 days to install natural stone or pavers. FastSlow Moderate Ability to customize Custom stamps allow you to imprint any designs. No Yes Special maintenance requirements All of these paving materials, including concrete, will require removal of dirt or stains when necessary by scrubbing or pressure. Annual seal coating Removal of weeds and moss that grow in the joints; refilling joints with sand as needed. Resealing every few years or as needed to protect the surface from stains and maintain color vibrancy.
