Proline Concrete Tools Flexible Concrete Stamps

Proline Border StampProline is introducing a new line of flexible stamps with unique shapes, and yes, a grapevine pattern was the first to go on the market.

Proline Concrete Tools Inc. isn't in the winemaking business, but if contractors all over the country want to press its grapes, the company would be more than happy to make that happen.

The stamp, which Proline started selling a couple of months ago, creates an imprint of grapes, vines and leaves when pressed into concrete.

Typically, they’re used just inside a design’s border, says co-owner Jeff Irwin, but they’ll work anywhere. “It’s kind of revolutionary.”

Because the rubber stamps are idiosyncratic shapes, a contractor needs to lay a feathered-edge seamless texture mat on top of one before stamping. Both textures are embedded at the same time.

The stamps will bend to hug any curve or contour and adjust to fit any design. With traditional tools, a curve or contour design must essentially be faked using hand tools, Irwin says.

Since the debut of the grapevine, Proline has introduced three more designs — dolphins, ivy leaves and a “Spanish flair” design. Each design is hand-sculpted by an artist, not made at a factory.

By January’s World of Concrete, the company hopes to be selling 12, including geometric designs, floral designs and a Celtic knot pattern.

Based in Oceanside, Calif., Proline Concrete Tools Inc. has been in business since 1991. For more information, call (760) 758-7240.
