The design and construction industry are starting to take notice of the significant benefits realized when using precast concrete that has been transformed by using formliners and coloured stains. Owners and builders are enjoying significant cost savings as well as increased turnaround time, when prefabricated precast panels with architectural finishes can be supplied considered faster than the traditional alternatives such as masonry or cast in place concrete. Architects and designers prefer the increased flexibility, vivid colour’s, and higher level of quality control which can be achieved. In many cases, budgets for these projects include a required amount for artistic impression, a requirement that can be more easily accommodated with new innovative formliner technologies and coloured stains. High – end building owners/ developers as well as others are seeing the many benefits of using stains and formliners to enhance the aesthetic appeal of precast concrete. From opaque to translucent results, to even metallic finishes, a myriad of effects and colour’s can be achieved when using a combination of formliners and coloured stains.
