About High Performance Concrete
Concrete is a vivid and natural material that changes over time.
Hi-Con products are made of high performance concrete, which as regular concrete, must be expected to change over time. The color and texture change during the lifetime of the concrete and this variation is the aesthetic strength of concrete and contributes to a vivid and varied expression.
The concrete patinates over time and changes its appearance. This change is a part of the aesthetic expression of the concrete. The patina concerns only the outer few milimeters of the surface and has no effect on the construction or durability of the concrete. It is only an aesthetic issue.
Products from Hi-Con will also patinate, but often slower and less than regular concrete.
