Flowcrete UK Unveils New Polished Concrete Floor – Monodec Grande Lux
07 Jul 2017
- New polished concrete system introduced to the UK market.
- Monodec combines attractive visuals with easy cleanability and durability.
- System designed to bring out the natural aesthetic of the cement matrix and its aggregates.
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 an existing concrete slab into a visually appealing surface that provides both easy cleanability and durability. Flowcrete UK has developed this new system by bringing together specialist grinding and polishing techniques with high performance sealers, densifiers, coatings and dyes.
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 then 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 for the long term. Additionally, Monodec Grande Lux has a lifecycle cost that is typically 60% lower than traditional floor coverings.
Monodec Grande Lux involves several steps of grinding and polishing the existing concrete slab in order to bring out the natural beauty and aesthetics of the cement matrix and its aggregates.
Each Monodec Grande Lux floor is unique, as the final result depends on the existing slab’s specific make up. Thanks to its hardwearing nature, the floor’s super glossy, light-reflective finish won’t be spoiled by factors such as rubber-wheeled traffic.
Flowcrete UK has added a polished concrete flooring system to its extensive collection of resin flooring solutions to ensure that construction industry professionals have as wide a spectrum of flooring solutions as possible available from a single source.
