Vertical stamp is a revolutionary system that consists of a unique, lightweight, vertical mix along with specially designed tools and colorants. Vertical Mix bonds to most surfaces, is water resistant, and unequalled in flexural and compressive strength.
The System Unlike concrete overlays on slabs, the Vertical Mix is a custom, lightweight concrete material that can be applied up to three inches thick and stamped within minutes after it is laid on. By using Vertical Mix with vertical stamps, you can achieve the deep texture normally associated with decorative flatwork - on fences, interior or exterior walls, pillars, you name it.

Application Vertical Mix is best applied using a hawk and trowel. Unlike regular concrete, troweling the surface is not necessary or recommended. The mix is ready to stamp immediately after you lay it on. All necessary touch-up and detail work is performed later that day using carving tools.
