Polished Overlays (also referred as polished toppings) are cementitious self-leveling materials that are poured over a floor and then polished like standard concrete. Polished Overlays are ideal for covering up floors with poor existing concrete conditions such as unevenness, large holes, cracks and other variations. This will provide a more even and consistent finish relative to polishing existing concrete. Customers can add colors/dyes, aggregate and saw cuts to achieve a more decorative or terrazzo like finish.
The Loft Concrete topping system is a specialty self-leveling concrete topping that outranks other self-drying formulas for smoothing concrete floors. NYC businesses take advantage of the powerful drying power of the modified polymer blend, which is commonly referred to as designer or polymer concrete. Loft has been engineered for rapid indoor resurfacing, leveling, and smoothing.
The quick-dry formula can be installed from ¼” to 2” in a single application, upwards of 5” with additional aggregates and used as underlayment for other flooring surfaces. Just 2 hours after concrete flooring installation, the water-borne concrete sealer can be applied. Once the sealant has fully dried, the area can be opened to traffic, making the Loft Architectural Concrete system an ideal solution for high traffic areas and operations that cannot close for extended periods of time. As an underlayment, another floor surface, such as vct or tile can be applied 12 hours after the concrete installation.
Loft concrete topping can be stained with various concrete dyes or acid stains, depending on the formula of self-leveling concrete used. Certain Loft formulas can also be polished or incorporate specific color pigments, recycled glass, and other aggregates to create a truly unique floor.
