Knife River Prestress is your official producer of Graphic Concrete patented technology. Graphic Concrete utilizes special retarder printed casting paper to transfer images onto the precast concrete.  Sky’s the limit on what can be designed into the concrete.  Graphic concrete offers everything from off the shelve genetic patterns to custom user defined patterns.  These patterns can add depth, surface interesting dimensions and even 3D effects while still casting on flat surfaces.  This eliminates the need to add or subtract from the precast panels to create depth.  The result is 100% concrete, and is as durable and maintenance-free as concrete itself.  Visit Graphic Concrete for additional information.
