We are sad to share the passing of an icon in the concrete art world, Jerry C Karlik, friend, mentor and someone with the best stories of doing so many things with a cool Florida style.
We will miss you Jerry and the wealth of knowledge you always shared with us.

$10,000 CONCRETE COUNTERTOPS

We recently had the pleasure of working with Modustrial Maker on a countertop project that tuned out absolutely fantastic! We used HP50 High Performance Concrete Mix and supercharged it with Super-Six-Admix for the countertops and sealed with our U-Seal Concrete Countertop Sealer.
Check out the video and let us know what you think.

Stocking up with AR Fibers so you don't have too... Second 40' Ocean container showed up this morning loaded with NEG AR Glass Fiber. Fishstone has over 60 pallets or 64,000lbs in stock today. Did you know NEG fibers are the only fibers with a zirconia level over 17% (This batch tested in at 17.2%). In addition, our fibers have a unique binder which allows the fibers to blend better and stay soft(easier to work with). This binder also provides a much better bond to the concrete creating stronger concrete with fewer fibers. Give us a call to get a pallet quote.....

Working on color swatches for our pigment line. They are cast in our HP50 high performance bag mix for consistancy. Next we'll seal some with Useal to show what the colors will be sealed and unsealed. Then we can move on to blended colors. Stock only 9 pigments and get the rainbow.

Making concrete countertops doesn't need to be complicated or difficult

Loving Fishstones Standard-HP50 concrete mix!♥️ Late last night I decided to cast a quick counter for our laundryroom at home. Half hour to build form... 45 minutes to grab 2 bags of HP50 mix, three pounds Kong polymer...add water mix spray/cast....cover with plastic. This morning pulled out of mold and scrubbed with clean & etch. Now I just wait a day and seal with U-seal. All together it will be less than two hours working time & less than $70 materials. Making concrete countertops doesn't have to be complicated or difficult.
