Graphical Concrete Surface
With Artico Neo, Reckli enables the visualisation of photos and graphics in concrete surfaces, which remain visible regardless of the influence of light and shadow. The technology can be used on facades or interior walls made of exposed concrete and offers creative freedom with a high degree of individualisation. The process is executed by means of a plastic film on which graphics or photos are printed with a concrete activator. This delays the setting of the concrete so that it can be washed out at the surface after the structural matrix has been stripped of its formwork. The uppermost cement skin of the concrete is partially removed. The contrast between the washed-out and smooth surfaces makes the graphics or photos on the wall visible.
