Butterfield Color Inc.
Butterfield Color Inc. has introduced several new products, including stains, wall systems and a sealer.
gives a natural stone face to vertical concrete pours. The liners are molded using a high-grade, reuse-friendly polyurethane and are available in 2-foot by 7-foot and 3-foot by 7-foot sizes. They interlock seamlessly from side to side and top to bottom using the system’s filler stones, which are also used to complete the pattern at the ends, corners, tops and bottoms.
Elements Transparent Stain for Concrete is formulated with micronized oxides that will readily permeate a concrete surface and create translucent color variations similar to reactive acid stain, but with a much wider range of possible colors. The non-filming stain resists fading. It is an excellent substitute for reactive chemical stains on substrates that are minimally reactive with acid stains or when extensive cleanup after an acid stain application is prohibited.
The Cantera Vertical Wall System consists of the new Cantera Vertical Wall Mix and a set of stamping tools that together create a natural stone look. The Mix is a polymer modified cementitious topping formulated for resurfacing clean, structurally sound vertical surfaces, including concrete, drywall, cement board, masonry and stone. The lightweight, nonsagging overlay is suitable for interior or exterior applications and is freeze-thaw resistant.
Clear Guard WB Urethane Sealer is a high-performance, two-component aliphatic polyurethane coating. The water-reducible urethane is VOC-free and nonyellowing. It provides a high-gloss, abrasion-resistant film suitable for sealing interior concrete floors and countertops and exterior concrete hardscapes.
Renovatio Opaque Concrete Stain is a high-performance, polymerized coloring stain. The concentrated three-component system penetrates and bonds within the substrate. It provides a uniformly colored, no-gloss, abrasion-resistant surface suitable for coloring existing concrete floors and exterior concrete hardscapes. It can be used to recolor unsealed decorative concrete or to renovate weathered or discolored concrete surfaces. A companion product, Renovatio Translucent Accent Stain, creates translucent variegated color or antiquing effects on stamped or textured surfaces, and may also be used to create faux finishes. Renovatio Clear Seal can be applied for additional protection or a gloss finish over Renovatio Opaque Concrete Stain and Renovatio Translucent Accent Stain.
