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:
