A surface sealer is then applied to prevent staining.

This surface is not as durable as the polished surfaces and requires regular maintenance.

Beton Cire finish

This product is used to replicate waxed trowelled concrete, traditionally used mainly in domestic situations in France.

It is a thin overlay material with outstanding durability.

A very attractive material, with a slightly uneven finish.

Patern Imprinted finish

Silicone Rubber Mats which are manufactured as an inverted mould of stone, slate, brick, timber, cobble and many others, can be pressed into the surface of fresh concrete usually with a colour hardener applied, to replicate the desired finish.

Cast (Board Marked) finish

The surface is a basic cast finish with timber boards used to give a board marked texture.

Many variations of this can be used.
