Architectural Concrete with a depth effect: Light-independent visualization of photos and graphics in the concrete surface. For unlimited freedom of design.
The façade is the external appearance of an object. It can tell a story and arouse curiosity, make the hidden visible and emphasize the purpose of a building. It can excite or shock, inspire and fascinate.
artico® neo complements the creative freedom for architectural concrete with an essential component. Photos, images, custom designs and graphics can be made visible with this procedure. The influence of light and shadow is irrelevant. That is why artico® neo is also excellently suited for use in the interior.
The process is simple:is a plastic foil on which graphics or photos are printed with a high-quality concrete activator. The concrete activator causes the concrete to set at a different time so that it can be washed out on the surface after demolding. The uppermost cement skin is partially removed. The contrast between the washed out and smooth surfaces makes the graphics or photos visible. The foils are intended for single use.
With our artico® neo design collection we present you motifs which are available as a standard. With a maximum size of the plastic foil of 3.15m × 25m (printable area 3,10 m x 25m) we deliver these designs in rolls. The foil can easily be cut to the desired size on site. The designs are horizontally and vertically repeatable.
Your custom design or photo is printed in the max. dimension of 3.10m x 25m on a plastic foil (foil dimension 3,15m x 25m) and cut to the desired size. We take care of the preparation of the files and send a visualization on request. Photos are fragmented into halftone dots just like in newspaper printing. Their size depends on the image template and the viewing distance and is defined project-specifically. Designs that have been produced once can be re-ordered at any time. Thanks to the special production process, no setup costs arise.
