Polymer cement overlay is a combination of cement, various aggregates and proprietary hybrid polymer resins. The purpose of adding polymer resin to cement and aggregate is to greatly increase the performance characteristics and versatility of conventional cement and concrete materials.
Unlike conventional cement and concrete mixes, polymer cement overlay is applied as thin as a single grain of sand or up to several inches thick without fear of delamination typical product failure. In addition, polymer cement overlays are much more resistant to damage from salt, petrochemicals, UV, harsh weather conditions and traffic wearing.
Concrete overlays were introduced over twenty years ago, intended for use as a thin surface restoration material for concrete substrates. With years of successful and permanent applications, concrete overlays were introduced into the architectural concrete and commercial flooring industry in the early 80’s where it’ use has become the norm. To this day, concrete overlays are used for interior and exterior applications ranging from:
Similar to conventional stamped concrete, but only ¼” to ½” thick applied over existing concrete. The finished look is that of truly authentic tile, brick, slate, flagstone, wood plank and more.
The standard for commercial and residential pool deck finishes. Provides a surface that won’t burn your feet in the sun making it perfect around the pool. Concrete overlay is applied to the existing concrete substrate in a moderately textured finish (average of 1/8″ thickness) in various patterns. Color choices are endless and can be matched in much the same way as paint. It can be highlighted with secondary colors. The texture is knocked down with a trowel or rolled with special texture rollers to slightly modify the appearance and feel of the finished application.
Designed to restore and protect damaged, pitted, flaking concrete and colored or stained to the look of a new concrete surface. This application can even be broom finished if desired.
Offers the ability to effectively repair and level concrete surfaces that have settled and become unsafe trip hazards. Re-grading from several inches thick down to a feathered edge is possible.
Quickly becoming the commercial flooring industries most demanded and specified finish. A thin layer of polymer cement is applied over existing concrete and chemically stained with a single or multiple translucent colors for a natural looking, elegant and durable flooring system.
