cool-crete or cool-deck


I need to pour a 4" slab of decking around a pool and match it to the existing one with cool-crete (or cool-deck...is there a difference?)
Is cool-crete (cool-deck) a product one can buy, or is it a specific mix of cement, sand and other ingredients?
The existing slab has a knock-down texture which I plan to match by spraying cool-deck material from a sheetrock texture sprayer if it will flow, or by splashing the material from a stiff broom. Any suggestions are appreciated.
Thanks

appreciated.
Kool deck as it is known here, is the same as what your asking about.
Yep you can buy it. Pool/plaster wholesalers will sell to almost anyone. so walking in with cash will get your product loaded in the back of your vehicle. 75 pound bags if I remember correctly.
The finished product is expensive if you hire some one to do it. The materials are not cheap either. I did some patching of my kool deck before I sold it and a quart bottle was ~$20.
Do you deal with adhesion of concrete products often? I do not and would not consider what your trying to do. First I could never match or come close to the existing pattern. Second I do not own a mixer nor the amount of time it takes to do a good sized area. You have to prep the concrete and then install. If you do it in sections it will look like that when your done.
