Decorative Concrete Solutions This brochure presents a range of solutions developed by CHRYSO in order to showcase for the decorative potential of concrete. Fashionable and versatile, concrete creates unique natural atmospheres. Used primarily for mechanical properties, it is also a material of choice for its aesthetic qualities. A comprehensive range of solutions for new projects or renovations, for residential, tertiary, or urban developments.
CreteCote is a thin skim-on floor coating. A coloured, thin-film cement-based floor covering which is versatile and durable. It is a two coat system which produces a 1.6mm smooth decorative finish ideal for internal domestic renovations. Comes complete with powder and catalyst as a twin pack.
CreteStain Wall Finish – An acid-based mixture containing special chemicals which reacts with the OPC in cement/concrete and permanently colours the surface.
DecoCrete Datasheet A coloured, cement-based material specifically formulated to be plastered to excessive thicknesses but does not slide or shrink and dries rock-hard. Slow setting gives plenty of time to work and manipulate the material in-situ.
TAL X-Tech CrystalClear is a clear high performance, solvent free, epoxy coating/sealer and is also suitable for use as a binder and sealer for decorative floor systems.
abe® CEM-blanc is a general purpose white Portland cement, specially manufactured to provide superior early strength with the added advantage of providing a wide range of aesthetic and decorative opportunities due to its key features of whiteness, high strength and durability. In addition to affording great design and colour versatility, abe® CEM-blanc complies fully with the requirements specified in SANS 50197-1 for type CEM II 42.SN cement.
DecoCrete Shapeable textured plaster. A coloured, cement-based material formulated to be plastered to excessive thicknesses but does not slide or shrink and dries rock-hard. A textured shaping system for the creation of artistic finishes, such as rock features, imitation brick walls and pool copings.
EIFS BaseCoat is a special mixture of various admixtures and Ordinary Portland Cement for repair of concrete and masonry, adhering and surfacing of EIFS Insulation boards prior to applying Cemcrete’s decorative coatings.
TAL’s X-Tech SuperFlow is suitably designed for application onto concrete substrates. Allow all new concrete work and screeds to cure for at least 6 weeks and 4 weeks respectively before proceeding. The substrate must be structurally sound, clean and dry and free from all traces of surface laitance and contamination such as dust, dirt, waxes, oils, bitumen, old adhesives, paint, grease, weak cement screeds, shutter release and curing agents, sealing compounds, etc. All damaged, defective, deteriorated, friable (powdery) and hollow sounding areas must be removed until a solid background is achieved. These areas must be made good before proceeding. The surface must be prepared, by captive blasting or grinding, to ensure that the aggregate in the concrete is fully exposed and open, ie to achieve a Concrete Surface Profile (CSP) of 5 or 6 (Medium Scarification).
Concrete primer is a modified latex liquid primer for concrete floors. To be used on wood floated (rough) and porous surfaces, ensuring a good bond onto the substrate. Dense, impervious surfaces should be ground to expose the surface pores and to create a relatively flat and level surface.
A finely ground mixture of white Portland cement, pigments and chemicals. It is supplied in powder form requiring mixing with water onsite to produce a smooth, flowing coating which sets rock hard.
TexCrete is a fibre-cement casting mix A thixotropic, quick setting, enhanced fibre-cement blend. Mixed with a solution of FlexBond for the saturation and impregnation of CemForce to form a reinforced product that can be cast into latex or silicone moulds. Produces castings of about 4 to 8 mm in thickness.
Chryso FiniSafe concrete finishing aid lubricates concrete surface for a faster, easier and better finish. Extends workability of concrete surface.
Chryso Decorative Concrete Fashionable and versatile, concrete creates natural atmospheres. Used primarily for its mechanical properties, it is also a material of choice for its aesthetic qualities.
CemCote Skimmed datasheet is a pigmented, thin film cement- based decorative wall covering which is versatile and durable. It is a two coat system which produces a 1.5mm smooth decorative finish suitable for application onto new plastered walls that have been sponge, wood or steel floated, or previously painted walls. It is ideal for internal and external domestic or commercial applications. CemCote can also be brush applied if a different finish is required. See CemCote (Brushed) datasheet.
TAL x-tech superflow general use and the method on how to apply it
