BeadCrete is a factory blended ready to use aggregate render for use on reinforced concrete pool interiors. Beadcrete produces a significantly superior aesthetic appearance leaving the pool with a stunning sparkle. The finish is not coarse so there is a low risk of skin abrasions. It is easily applied to new or renovated pool interiors by competent tradespersons.
BeadCrete can be used as a cost-competitive replacement for traditional exposed pebble finishes. The beads enhance the aesthetics of the pool water appearance with a modern twist. The beads’ strength and durability result in a low maintenance finish.
BeadCrete’s main purpose is for the application onto concrete pool shell interiors. It is engineered from silica-free pure glass beads, blended aggregates and polymer modified cement technology that produces excellent durability and minimal maintenance of the finished product under normal in-service pool conditions.
Beadcrete is available in the following colours: Maldives, Maldives Flash, Le Meridian, Le Meridian Flash and Bora Bora, and is manufactured by Cemcrete.
To ensure durable and uniform coverage, BeadCrete must be applied at a consistent thickness of 8mm. One 20kg bag of BeadCrete mixed with the recommended maximum water content of 3 – 4 litres of clean water will cover approximately 0.9m² per 20kg. An average-sized pool (9m x 4m x 1.5m) might normally require 45 – 50 (20kg) bags of product to ensure sufficient and uniform coverage.
Note that coverage estimate is a guide only. Variation may or will occur subject to preferred water mix design, application method and finishing techniques of tradespersons, waste factors and scope of the works.
Beadcrete is packaged in 20kg bags and must be stored undercover, above ground and protected from water damage. Shelf life is 6 – 12 months from date of manufacture subject to climatic conditions.
