Cemcrete, one of the leading manufacturers of cement-based decorative coatings, says it has the latest cement technologies with the means to create innovative products that can be featured and incorporated in modern house design. The sheer variety of products within their range and functionality adapts to modern housing while maintaining sustainable and reliable finishes.
Regarding wall coatings, Cemcrete offers a diverse range of colours and applications to achieve various looks. Custom design is essential in modern housing, as the needs for specific finishes vary from space to space.
Cemcrete’s most popular wall products are SatinCrete, CemWash and CemCote, which can all be used for interior and exterior surfaces (with the exception of SatinCrete, which is for interior use only).
Desired textures can be achieved through the selection of the different products. To achieve a neutral pallet, which is modern, sleek, and timeless, each of these products has an extensive colour range that spans from greys, whites, warm browns and reds, as well as muted greens.
Achieving a predominantly neutral surface then allows for feature walls and accessories to pop. These can be interchanged on a more regular basis to maintain a current trend or fluctuate with your changing style.
Cemcrete has put products to the test to ensure that they are not only aesthetically pleasing, but that the claim to durability and longevity rings true. For instance, Cemcrete’s brush-on application, CemWash, an extremely textured coating, has an SABS rate penetration certification and can withstand up to 1 000mm of water at a time.
It is also UV stable, making its performance phenomenal on exterior surfaces faced by excessive sun and weather abrasion. Similarly, Cemcrete’s other brush-on application, CemCote, delivers a smoother continuous surface while maintaining durability and fade resistance.
SatinCrete, which is Cemcrete’s extremely popular interior coating, is a skim-on application where its thickness does not exceed 2-3mm. This coloured, waterproof, decorative element eliminates the need for tiling or painting wall surfaces.
It performs extremely well in bathroom areas, including the inside of the shower, due to its smoothness which makes it easy to wipe and wash. Once sealed, this coating is stain-resistant and does not allow for mildew or rot to take place.
These cement-based coatings are superior alternatives to generic wall coverings, particularly as their lifespan exceeds that of acrylic-based coatings.
They provide interesting and beautiful colour variations once applied due to their cement nature, and with the use of sealers, the colours of these products can be enhanced or muted. With each product comes a different mode of application, creating once-off effects.
Modern housing calls for unique design as well as economic and eco-friendly functionality, and Cemcrete serves for both.
