Concrete toppings can receive pigmented color dyes, stains, saw cuts or mechanical polishing to produce a decorative concrete finished wear surface. Self-leveling concrete toppings comes in either white or grey, which makes for a beautiful floor. If color is desired, pigments are mixed into each batch thoroughly to obtain consistency providing for an integrally colored surface. Mixing aggregates can be applied to the uncured topping to provide a terrazzo type of finish.
Often times, concrete toppings, such as SIKA FLOOR, TRU PC are used as the basis for designer flooring solutions. Many of the projects we have completed include retail stores, office spaces, and restaurants. Many of our clients prefer the look of designer concrete toppings over polished surfaces due to our ability to create a consistent finish rather than taking a chance with an unpredictable outcome with concrete polishing.
Concrete topping systems offer high strength (up to 6,100 PSI compressive & 1,200 PSI flexural) with a fast turnaround. TRU topping systems such as PC can accept light foot-traffic in less than 4 hours after the initial pour, and can be polished after only 24-hours. The ease and cost-effective manner of maintenance, and the fast turn-around, make concrete toppings an ideal flooring solution for just about any application.
