ShapeCrete is a collaborative innovation between designer and founder of CHENG Concrete, Fu-Tung Cheng, providing a high-performance, versatile concrete mix that can be shaped, sculpted, molded or cast to make concrete projects.

Using concrete as his signature medium, Cheng has created architectural designs and forms for a variety of interior and exterior applications spanning concrete water features, sculptural countertops and complete, custom homes. Cheng and SAKRETE recently teamed up with a mutual vision to inspire the maker community—everyone from concrete artisans and crafters, to artists and DIY homeowners—to change the way they think about and work with concrete.

The innovative result of their collaboration is ShapeCrete: an easy-to-use, just-add-water, shape-able concrete that can be poured, rolled, pushed or molded into an array of custom concrete designs.

As a durable, professional-grade concrete product, ShapeCrete allows makers, crafters, DIYers and contractors to stretch the limits of their creative potential through concrete designs that require no oven-baking or kiln-firing. Since ShapeCrete is designed for simple workability in both thick and thin applications, users can simply add water, mix and sculpt the clay-like substance into limitless shapes or forms, such as custom planters, vases, bowls, address tiles, garden sculptures, furniture and more.

Additionally, ShapeCrete provides 30 to 60 minutes of working time and can be colored with concrete colors during mixing or painted once hardened after 24 hours. The end result is a durable concrete structure with a beautiful finish that can include a smooth or glass-like appearance, a refined texture or even detailed impressions of other objects.

ShapeCrete also doubles as a quick, easy-to-use material for small everyday concrete repairs such as patching and repair for driveways, patios and walkways.

The launch of ShapeCrete builds upon the companies’ established partnership in which SAKRETE 5000-Plus bagged concrete has been the core product used with CHENG Countertop Pro-Formula and Outdoor Pro-Formula admixtures for more than a decade. ShapeCrete will soon be available at arts and crafts, home improvement and hardware retailers throughout the U.S.
