When making photographic concrete, the patented "GraphicConcrete" technology relies on a surface retarder that is applied to the surface of a special membrane. The photographic foil is positioned in the shuttering and concrete poured over it. The binder retarder causes the concrete to harden at different speeds at various points. As a result, rough and smooth surfaces arise, as do dark/light transitions. Using this method, manufacturers of concrete products can create different types of…
