Blue Line Release Max

Blue Line Release Max

PRECISION COLOR RELEASE - Blue Line Color Release is a custom blend of color pigments (ASTM-C7979), dry hydrophobic powder, and other proprietary ingredients.  They're made with Blue Line's Precision Pack pure, light fast, weather proof pigments.  Manufacturing quality and consistency is assured by strict control of blending the components in their proper proportions.  Blue Line Release Max adds color variations and highlights to the textured surface, providing an attractive two-color antiqued look that very closely resembles natural materials such as cobblestone, brick, tile and slate. 

The release powder is the highlighter not the primary colorant in the concrete; coloring of the concrete may be achieved by using integral pigments or color hardeners.  Which procedure to use should be determined by the final desired effect, conditions at the job site and preference of the designer.  Integral colored produces a color through matrix while color hardener is a surface application.  The advantage of integral color is that it colors through the thickness of the slab, saves time and labor and it makes for a cleaner finishing process.  Color hardener on the other hand required more time and labor to finish but it provides with a greater color selection including light hues and pastel colors not possible to achieve with integral color, the resulting finish was a harder more wear resistant surface for higher traffic areas and the material cost is slightly lower. 


  • Allows a clean bond break between fresh concrete and stamping tools or mats.
  • Adds color variation-antiquing affect for stamped services
  • Easy removal process allows for controlled removal to achieve desired shading effect.


  • It is helpful to also coat the stamps with release powder before placing on wet, concrete for the first time. 
  • Never drag anything on the service or trowel over release powder.  Discoloration will occur.
  • If the stamps have been recently washed, they must be fully dry before starting to stamp. Any moisture still left on the mats will decrease the release powder efficiency resulting on concrete adhering to the stamp. 
  • Always cover walls, columns and plants with 1 mill plastic liner to avoid excessive clean up labor.
  • Before pressure washing the concrete, broom off the release powder or pick up with a wet/dry vacuum.
  • If after pressure washing and cleaning there is still too much release on the surface a very mild water/muratic acid solution may be used to complete the removal.  Use this process with caution.
