- Be sure the concrete vertical forms are clean and smooth.
- Starting at a corner, on the inside surface of the exterior side of the concrete form, line the first panel up at the desired height. Fasten to the form, WOOD FORMS: Staples , METAL FORMS: High strength tape
- Continue along the concrete form with each subsequent panel, locking/overlapping each panel at the panel joint.
- At inside corners: use the 1” corner piece at the joint and cut the panels to size.
- At outside corners: Size and cut the panels to the edge of the form, caulk at the raised “mortar joint” to continue the pattern.
- After all of the panels are in place, fasten the individual inserts at each panel joint to hide the seams that appear in the pattern.
- Be sure the bottom edge of the panels are securely fastened to the forms. Fasteners should be used every 12” +/-. (Be sure bottom edge is sufficiently fastened, so the rising concrete mix won’t creep behind the form liner)
- Spray a thin coating of the Pro Stamp Release concrete release agent onto the entire surface of the panels. Care should be taken to use a light coating with no runs or pooling in the corners or edges. Wet an absorbent rag with Pro Stamp Release agent and wipe the panels to ensure 100% coverage and to remove excess agent, leaving just a thin coating. NOTE: The PRO STAMP RELEASE agent is a powerful concentrate – excess agent will inhibit concrete from curing properly and may cause air pockets to show.
- Immediately after the concrete pour, consolidate the concrete with an internal vibrator. This is to help trapped air escape, and help push the mix into every crevice of the panels. Be sure that the vibrator does not touch the form liners.
- After the concrete has sufficiently cured (for maximum result, at least 48-72 hours after the pour), carefully remove the concrete forms. While removing the forms, use extra caution to remove the forms evenly and perpendicular to the surface of the impression areas.
- Remove the form liners from the concrete forms and discard.
- Remove all residual fasteners from the forms to keep a smooth surface.
