What is a floppy?
A flex is produced with a more pliable urethane that can be bent to a 90* angle. The flex has no handles and is thinner. This allows you to fill in the areas that the concrete stamps do not, confining situations such as formed edges or next to a wall etc. which will minimize your final touch up. Flexes are available in all patterns.
How many concrete stamps will I need for my job?
The general rule is that you will need enough concrete stamps to completely go across the width of the area to be stamped plus 1 to 2 additional concrete stamps to start the next row. You will also need at least one flex, a tamper tool and miscellaneous hand tools. Grout wheels are also available. IMPORTANT: Always remember to know the dimensions of the tool of choice since sizes vary from pattern to pattern. Always take into consideration your normal job factors such as wind, sun exposure, and general climate. You do not want to lose your stamping window due to an inadequate number of concrete stamps.
Do I have to purchase a minimum number of stamps?
No. The Concrete Supply House does not require you to purchase a minimum or set. We understand that this is an investment and some small jobs such as a walkway or small patio may only require a few stamps.
Are your concrete stamps warranted?
Yes. Matcrete Concrete Texturing stamps are lifetime warranted when used under proper conditions with the appropriate decorative concrete products.
Why do some mat patterns have a choice of different colors?
There is a slight variation in the pattern from color to color to create a more natural look as they interlock correctly. We use color coding to make it more convenient for you. There is no set color order when placing on your concrete, just donÆt put the same colors next to each other. When a pattern has more than one color we recommend that an equal amount of each color is purchased to assure the more natural look.
What type of care is needed for your concrete stamps?
The care is simple. Just hose, wipe down and your concrete stamps are ready for your next job.
How many inches of concrete is required in order to use concrete stamps?
A minimum of 2 inches of concrete is needed.
Why can't I use all floppies rather than regular concrete stamps?
In order to stamp properly you need the rigidity of the actual regular concrete stamps. The concrete stamps are made with handles, a more durable material and allows you to get on the concrete sooner. Flex are manufactured for the fill in and tight areas only and not designed to support the weight of a worker.
