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: artico® neo 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.
