Flowcrete UK introduces new polished concrete floor

  • 14 Aug 2017

Flowcrete UK has revealed its new polished concrete floor range, Monodec Grande Lux

Monodec has been designed to bring out the natural aesthetic of the cement matrix and its aggregates, is easy to clean and offers durability.

The new polished concrete system is suitable for commercial, industrial, new build and refurbishment projects. Flowcrete UK has developed this new system by bringing together specialist grinding and polishing techniques with high performance sealers, densifiers, coatings and dyes.

Diamond grinding techniques are used to remove the surface laitance and expose the natural aggregates in the concrete mix. The slabs are then treated to strengthen the concrete and ensure a uniform finish. The floor is then polished down to a flat, glossy surface that will not only achieve a high-end appearance but which will maintain an easy to clean, wear resistant finish for the long term.

Each Monodec Grande Lux floor is unique, as the final result depends on the existing slab’s specific make up. Due to its hardwearing nature, the floor’s glossy, light-reflective finish won’t be spoiled by factors such as rubber-wheeled traffic.

Monodec Grande Lux has a lifecycle cost that is typically 60% lower than traditional floor coverings.

Architects can also book onto an RIBA approved CPD seminar about specifying polished concrete that explores this type of flooring in depth, compares it to alternative materials and provides attendees with the practical info required to evaluate the available polished concrete options and make an informed decision.
