Duraamen Engineered Products (New York, N.Y.) introduced a polymer-modified concrete-resurfacing system, Terrazzi Concrete Refinishing System, billed as an “ideal” flooring option for architectural concrete applications where cost, durability and aesthetic concerns are crucial.
The system produces a “very attractive polished concrete finish on floors and walls,” and is formulated with arapido, the company says. Arapido is a resurfacing compound that can be sprayed onto any hard surface, and while it is still wet is “impregnated” with a proprietary blend of fine aggregates, including recycled glass and crushed marble called “Cast-On.”
When subsequently polished to accentuate the nuances of the cement-aggregate matrix, the coating gives the concrete surface a distinct, attractive appearance and also protects it against damage from corrosion and abrasion, the company says.
The company adds that the system consists of zero-VOC materials and can accept integral color pigments, dyes, and chemical- and water-based stains to achieve a wide range of color options.
The resurfacing system can also be sprayed over gypcrete, enabling it to be stained or dyed, the company says.
