Concrete Forming

Concrete Forming Definitions

Architectural Concrete: formed surfaces where appearance is of major importance and the concrete is to be left in the as-cast state.

Mechanical Textured Concrete: formed surfaces which are to be mechanically finished to produce a special effect e.g. bushammering.

Smooth Concrete: formed surfaces exposed to view, not of the importance of architectural concrete and not to be otherwise treated except by rubbing.

Coated Concrete: formed surfaces where the condition of the surface promotes a bond between an applied coating such as paint or acoustical coating and the concrete. The release agent must be compatible with the coating.
