HOW IS CONCRETE COLORED?

Color is integral to the concrete - meaning that pigment is added into the concrete mix and thoroughly dispersed. This enables the finished product to display a coherent, uniform color profile that is consistent throughout the cured, cast piece. The color is further enhanced once the surface is sealed, as all the subtle nuances and gradations that are the hallmark of concrete are revealed. No other stone is this dynamic, making GFRC unparalleled in its ability to deliver precisely the colors and finishes specified in your project.

Specialty effects

DEBOSSING & EMBOSSING

Debossing and embossing are methods of casting liquid concrete against a shape or form so that it cures bearing the signature of that shape. Words, letters, logos, images and even other objects can be used to deboss/emboss concrete.

Concrete wood edge
Texturing

A popular choice for wall panels, sink aprons, fireplace cladding & other vertical surfaces, this finish is achieved by casting liquid concrete against wooden boards. Results vary based on the species, texture, size, and spacing of the wood that is utilized.

STENCILING

A cured concrete surface can be chemically etched to make it more susceptible to staining or painting. Stenciling is the process of treating the surface with a specific graphic in order to create images, logos, words, symbols, etc. The entire surface is then sealed to capture and preserve the graphic.

 

CASE STUDIES

PROJECT: VINO VOLO / DULLES INTL. AIRPORT
ARCHITECT: FIELD PAOLI
IMAGES: MARK WICKENS

This project called for branded GFRC cladding to wrap the seating area for a popular dining & drinking area. Multiple techniques and methods were employed simultaneously to achieve the specified results, including knockouts for the brand mark and casting against distressed wood planks to achieve the wood-grain texture.
 

PROJECT: CANYON SINK
ARCHITECT: DUNSMUIR INSTITUTE ARCHITECTS
IMAGES: MEGHAN BOB PHOTOGRAPHY / TRUEFORM CONCRETE

The “Canyon Sink” is an example of how architects and designers can partner with Trueform Concrete to create pieces that are distinct, functional art objects. In this case, the Dunsmuir Institute Architects approached us with a novel idea: fabricate a concrete sink in the shape of the canyon in which the client’s home was being built. Trueform was provided with a topographic map of Mandeville Canyon (located in southern California) which we used in conjunction with a few technologies in order to achieve the end result. For the final touch, a tiny, 3D-printed brass Monopoly house was affixed in the exact location of the client’s home. The Canyon Sink project was one of our more rewarding collaborations. and both our partner and their client feel a deep sense of connection to the final product.
