Decorative concrete that looks as great today as it does tomorrow
When you want a hardwearing surface that has a designer-edge, Imagecrete Exposed decorative concrete looks as great today as it does tomorrow.
Driveways, pool surrounds, paths, and al frescos – they’re all areas where looks and performance are crucial.
For instance, tiles might look nice, but they’re prone to cracking and grout discolouration over time. Pavers tend to subside and crack too. Timber decking around the pool and in the al fresco area might look good at the beginning, but its colour fades, needs lots of maintenance and sometimes even rots.
Imagecrete Exposed is a good-looking alternative that performs for a lifetime – without a lifetime of maintenance. Made from exposing some of the aggregates (sand and small stones) in the concrete, it also looks natural, to fit in well with natural surroundings.
The natural look that fits in
No matter whether your home is contemporary or traditional, Imagecrete Exposed decorative concrete, with its natural-stone look, can fit in – and bring the outdoors in. (It also adds texture, that all important ingredient of industrial chic.)
For instance, when you use Imagecrete Exposed in the al fresco, courtyard or pool surround, it helps these areas become an extension of the house. Use it in external entrances and they can seamlessly transition to ground-floor foyers and living areas, especially when they’re using Imagecrete Polished decorative concrete.
Plus with an array of exposure depths, a variety of customisable coloured aggregates and a limitless range of colours, whatever your design idea; Hanson’s experienced Imagecrete team can create a look to meet your project needs.
One of the big drawbacks of other surfaces – like tiles and timber decking for example – is that they’re more expensive than installing Imagecrete Exposed. Part of the reason is that installing Imagecrete Exposed takes only one trade.
The finish is achieved by your concrete contractor working on the concrete while it’s still wet or within a few days of concrete placement.
From the leaders in decorative concrete
Imagecrete Exposed comes to you from one of Australia’s leading building materials companies:
Hanson’s Imagecrete Exposed is the decorative concrete that gives you limitless natural looks with enduring performance.
Hanson Imagecrete Exposed Concrete
If you’d like to have that indoor-outdoor connection and a natural look in a hardwearing material, then Imagecrete Exposed Concrete is a perfect choice for your driveway, al fresco, path, or pool surround. It will also never look like your neighbour’s! It will also contrast well with normal concrete and other decorative treatments like stenciling, stamping and coloured concrete.
When it comes to colour, Hanson uses LiquidColour™ liquid pigments, based on iron oxides, to add the colour to Imagecrete Exposed decorative concrete. This means that the colour completely permeates the concrete, so that even if your surfaces are damaged, it won’t be as obvious.
In addition, Imagecrete colours are added using Hanson’s fully automated liquid pigment system, which improves accuracy and is traceable through autographic batch records.
Hanson’s limitless range of colours can be enhanced even further, using different finish. For example, heavy exposure increases slip resistance, which makes it even more suitable for high traffic areas.
Low maintenance Unlike timber decks, there’s no re-oiling needed with Imagecrete. Nor is there any need to clean discoloured grout, as there is with tiles. Colours are fade-resistant and even uncoloured Imagecrete Exposed, just needs a hose and a broom every now and again.
