Color concrete with our integral color, shake-on color hardener, or concrete stain systems. Transform standard concrete into an elegant natural stone, slate, brick or hardwood appearance with our stamping tools. From preparation to sealing we offer one place to obtain all of the compatible products and tools necessary to create nearly any desired vision.
Vertical concrete overlays can provide a new decorative finish to existing walls and other vertical surfaces. Mainly applied to existing concrete substrates, vertical wall mixes can also be applied to drywall, cement board, masonry, and brick. Create the appearance of natural stone, wood, brick, and masonry using vertical stamping tools, vertical texture & joint roller tools, or by hand carving a unique stone design. Vertical overlays are colored and stained using integral concrete color, acid stain and water based concrete stain.
Butterfield Color is pleased to introduce the Cantera™ vertical wall systems. This system consists of Cantera™ Vertical Wall Mix and the Butterfield Color® Vertical Wall Stamping Tools and Texture Rollers. The stamping tools and vertical texture rollers are designed for use with Cantera to create the look of natural stone. Once stamped and colored, the cured material creates a durable, natural looking and weather resistant surface that resembles natural stone.
Cantera™ Vertical Wall Mix
A polymer modified, cementitious overlay that is a lightweight and sag resistant material suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
A precise blend of graded aggregate, cement and polymer which allows for thin to moderately thick application: 3/4 inch (19 mm) minimum to a maximum of 2 inch (51 mm) in a single application. Multiple applications are possible if a thickness over 2" is desired.
Available in 35 pound (15.9 kg) bags, mix one bag with 1.75 - 2.00 gallons (6.6 to 7.5 L) potable water water for coverage of approximately 11 square feet at 3/4 inch (1 m2 at 19 mm) thick.
Available in a medium gray blend with a wide range of color options available by adding Uni-Mix® Color Packs prior to mixing.
T1000™ Primer and T1000™ Fine Overlay are used to prepare the substrate and create the scratch coat.
In addition to decorative floors and walls, concrete countertops, tabletops and other concrete accent pieces are also in high demand to further enhance an interior or exterior space. The versatility of Butterfield Color® countertop products allow for truly unique and fully customized creations.
Flat Out® Countertop Mix
Designed for quick production and pre-casting of countertops, tabletops, concrete panels, and other architectural precast shapes and pieces.
A fast setting two component cementitious concrete mix, with pieces able to be de-molded in a little as 3 hours.
Polish within 8 hours of pouring.
A glass fiber reinforced, polymer modified, self-consolidating mix with a 28 day compressive strength of approximately 11,000 psi.
Wide range of color options available by adding a Uni-Mix® Color Pack for each bag of countertop mix.
Dry mix is packaged in 55 lb. (24.94 kg) bags and the Liquid Polymer is packaged in 5 gallon (18.9L) pails. One pail of polymer yields enough material for approximately 6 bags of countertop mix.
One bag of dry materials mixed with approximately 3.25 quarts (3L) of liquid polymer yields 0.42 cubic feet (11.9L) of cured material or approximately 5 square feet (.46 m²) at 1 inch (25.4 mm) thick.
Concrete is an inherently attractive building material. It embodies the natural appeal of stone by its mass and permanence. Concrete stains are an excellent choice for producing colors often found in the earth and rock. Butterfield Color® staining systems are popular for their color range and durability.
Concrete stain provides a contemporary finish of floors, countertops, and even walls. Stains are applicable for both interior and exterior construction, and can be used with freshly cured or existing surfaces.
Butterfield Color® staining systems provide wide color variations, mottling, and unevenness of the color is normal and usually desired. If these coloring effects are not desired, Elements™ should not be used. When a more uniformly colored concrete is desired for new concrete installations, Uni-Mix® Integral Color or Perma-Cast® Shake-on Color Hardener should be specified.
Elements™ Transparent Concrete Stain
Packaged in 32-ounce (1 L) and 4-ounce (118 ml) bottles of concentrated stain. Standard Dilution is 3 parts water to 1 part stain. At diluted strength coverage is approximately 200-400 square feet per gallon, but varies with surface conditions. Formulated to readily permeate a properly prepared concrete surface and create translucent color variations similar to reactive acid stain.
A low odor, water-based, environmentally and user-friendly concrete staining system with low VOC (15-45 g/L depending on color selection).
