The popularity of polished concrete has rapidly increased over the last few years, whether it be in retail, residential or public environments.
At Flowcrete we often receive enquires from designers, architects and developers who are looking to create an industrial urban aesthetic in their facility but have unsuccessfully tried and failed with polished concrete.
The most common issues that we hear about are that: polished concrete exposes cracks in the substrate, provides unattractive aggregates and can result in visible variances in the slab colour.
To help you and your company to learn more about the issues that can arise as a consequence of specifying polished concrete flooring, Flowcrete has created a highly informative SlideShare series. The three presentations also highlight how a resin flooring solution can provide the ideal fit-for-purpose alternative design solution.
Part one of our series looks at Urban Expressions as an alternative flooring solution. The polyurethane resin is installed using a specialist technique which creates a multi-dimensional finish, that is unique to each installation. The colour palette is natural and neutral and provides a seamless, understated finish.
