The Broadcast Aggregate System was an excellent choice because of low maintenance, high durability, high slip-resistance, and a color choice that complimented the exterior finish.

Paddock Square, a town square where residents congregate for nightly entertainment with plenty of food and retail opportunities, features water towers, silos, barn and log-cabin structures. The style is designed back to an era when cowboys drove cattle through the state. Bomanite Licensee, Edwards Concrete Company took the ideas of the architect, Michael Pape & Associates, and made them come alive with their talented crew of concrete artist and even added a few of their own designs to make the theme really stand out and create a WOW factor.

At Paddock Square, Edwards Concrete placed integrally colored concrete in an earthy brown shade. Bomanite Color Hardeners and Release Agents were utilized with the Dried Earth Texture stamp to provide an illusion of sun-baked mud and dirt.

The sidewalks to the entrance of Brownwood at paddock Square had to be poured while overhead cranes set the Bronze statues in place. Once the cows, horse and dog were in place the Edwards crew had to pour concrete up to and around the animal feet then stamped the concrete to make it look like the animals were traveling through an old west town on a dried cracked mud path. The cow and horse stamps had to be made to match the size of the animals and scale of the statues. Creative stamping techniques were utilized, for horseshoes, “cowboy” footprints and tracks of wagon wheels. Installers strapped horse stamps onto their own feet and even hired a white dog to strut across the wet concrete. The
Bomacron Dried Earth Texture imprinting tool from Bomanite was employed to weather the faux dirt.

Bomanite of Tulsa worked with architects PDG Incorporated to create a unique and one of a kind design for Jackson Park located in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. Micro-Top XT by Bomanite in several custom colors were chosen to create a vibrant and fun playground.

Micro-Top XT by Bomanite is a two-part, polymer-modified cementitious coating consisting of a unique rubber-like polymer liquid and a cement-aggregate blend. It can be applied over almost any clean, sound surface including concrete, cement block, tile, metal and wood in a wide range of colors and graphics. Micro-Top XT has extraordinary adhesion and ability to withstand prolonged pedestrian and vehicular traffic. In these respects, the material is far superior to conventional cementitious coatings. Micro-Top XT provides a tough, water-retardant coating that substantially reduces water penetration, freeze-thaw scaling and concrete carbonation. It is a “breathable” coating that releases normal entrapped vapor without loosening or blistering. Typical uses include concrete exterior restoration, parking structure protection, sidewalk resurfacing, wall refinishing and installation coating, stadium renovation, swimming pool walkways and balcony deck surfacing.
