Flowcrete UK has unveiled a new polished concrete system to the construction industry, Monodec Grande Lux.
Suitable for commercial, industrial, new build and refurbishment projects, Monodec Grande Lux is ideal for transforming existing concrete slabs into a visually appealing, durable surface.
A Monodec Grande Lux floor is created by using diamond-grinding techniques to remove the surface laitance and expose the natural aggregates in the concrete mix. The slab is then treated to strengthen the concrete and ensure a uniform finish, designers can even choose between a coloured stain or patterned visual effect.
Once treated the floor is polished down to a super flat, super glossy surface that will not only achieve a high-end appearance but which will maintain an easy to clean, wear resistant finish. Additionally, Monodec Grande Lux has a lifecycle cost that is typically 60 per cent lower than traditional floor coverings.
Architects interested in finding out more can book onto a RIBA approved CPD seminar, which explores polished concrete, compares it to alternative materials and provides attendees with the practical info required to evaluate the available options and make an informed decision.
