A Graphic Concrete pattern is 100% concrete; and as durable as the concrete itself. It stays beautiful and needs no specific maintenance, saving costs during the whole lifespan of the building.
As opposed to using a formliner, the Graphic Concrete paper does not require increasing the thickness of the panel. This minimizes the use of concrete, keeping the panel as slim and light as possible. This will save not only on material, but also on transportation and installation costs.
The paper is disposable and flexible to use; it can be cut into small sheets or larger pieces can be joined together. There are no limitations to the panel sizes.
The paper can be used with different types of concrete (traditional/self compacting/GFRC/UHPC).
It requires no special equipment. A factory that can make exposed aggregate surfaces can also make Graphic Concrete.
The exposure is very fine, so it does not require any structural adjustments.
The Graphic Concrete paper is an environmentally friendly product. The paper is recyclable and safe to use.
It does not emit any harmful gas or chemicals. It reduces the use of solvent based materials and dust inconvenience during production.
It does not have any effect in regards to the environmental load of a building. We have LEED Platinum references.
The Graphic Concrete surface is finished and assembly-ready directly after production.
It reduces the need for additional material use on the facade such as cladding, treatments or paints.
It also reduces the need for additional scaffolding at the construction site, minimizes disruptions at the site and saves time during construction.
The outcome is 100 % made of concrete and the surface is as durable as concrete itself. A Graphic Concrete surface is virtually maintenance free, which saves costs during the whole lifespan of the building.
