Popular Marble Concrete Paint
Very popular now, marble concrete paint and resin cover (almost) all surfaces, both horizontally and vertically. Price, implementation, maintenance…. We show you their differences and their benefits. Originally intended for industrial floors, resin is a two-component system (resin and hardener). It is a rigid material, very resistant to wear, which adheres on different media: concrete, tiles, metal, wood…
It allows to obtain a perfectly smooth floor but also to renovate vertical surfaces (kitchen cupboards, tiles of bathroom …). Well closed and without joints, it is very hygienic. Acrylic resin, especially used on vertical surfaces, is applied to the roller like a paint. The thicker epoxy or polyurethane resin is poured on the floor and spread with a spatula or trowel.
The actual concrete, which is used for the floor of industrial buildings, is implemented in the form of a screed about 7 cm thick on which is projected colored quartz. After smoothing with the helicopter, a polishing finish is applied. For individuals, it is mainly products for decorative use that are proposed: also called mill metric concretes, they are thin and imitate the appearance of polished concrete. To these mortars produced from sand or silica, and cement or lime, are added pigments or dyes. A wax or a finishing varnish is then applied to protect their surface.
