    The appearance of bare concrete can be significantly enhanced with etched decorative designs. Ultra-high pressure water jetting cuts through the concrete laitance to expose the aggregate and create a much darker, textured surface. By using a stencil, very accurate and crisp designs can be applied. We can also create a polychromatic effect by etching to variable depths.

    The process can be conducted in-situ on standard panels. Unlike moulded relief, the panel does not need to be thickened to retain design strength. Our low-flow rate equipment is dust-free and creates minimal mess which we easily contain and vacuum away.
