Creating a strong, durable and polished floor finish designed to last for years while requiring minimal maintenance.
Cemcrete proudly introduces their newest product, PolishCrete, which provides a floor or surface that is the perfect combination of beauty, durability and low maintenance.
PolishCrete is a thin, decorative, cement-based system that is designed to be polished to a glossy and hard wearing finish. This thin, cement-based product can be applied to existing counter tops and floors, making it ideal for renovations and new projects alike.
As the aspiration for “green” flooring continues to rise at a rapid rate, PolishCrete encompasses many ‘green’ factors as it is considered one of the most durable and sustainable flooring solutions on the market. Builders and contractors continue to search for alternative construction methods that offer long term solutions, which is why PolishCrete can be viewed as an ideal choice when evaluating finishes on a life-cycle basis.
As the name strongly suggests, the secret to PolishCrete lies in the polishing process after it has set. Polishing the surface serves two purposes; firstly to create a glossy, hard-wearing finish; and secondly to expose the aggregate that is blended with the cement. As a result, the visual impact is that of a granite counter or floor, but at a fraction of the cost.
PolishCrete is available in six, proudly South African colours to create any and every look; with the range of nature-inspired colours including Knysna Mussel, Bantry Bay Beige, Ballito Beach, Sea Point Silver, Sandy Bay Nude and Storms River Rock.
From a practical point of view, PolishCrete is extremely hard-wearing and durable, making it a perfect choice for both floors and counter tops. It can also be used in the kitchen and bathroom as it is both impact and abrasion resistant. Once installed, and a Lithium Densifier is applied to seal it off, PolishCrete is non-porous and does not support microbial growth or the accumulation of water, resulting in increased stain resistance that requires minimal cleaning and eliminating the need for harsh cleaning chemicals.
After using PolishCrete, a building is able to showcase a clean, well refined, reflective finish. Cemcrete therefore assists in achieving a beautiful, polished concrete that is perfect for any purpose.
