Q: Can I use CreteCote as a wall finish?
A: No. For a similar look use Cemcrete’s CemCote Skimmed as your wall finish. However, CreteCote can used to coat a built-in vanity.
Q: Can CreteCote be applied over tiles?
A: Yes it can be applied over tiles as long as the necessary preparation steps are followed to ensure adhesion to the tiles. Any glazed tiles need to be sanded or ground to remove the glazed surface. Tiles such as slasto and clay should not be coated due to their friable and flaky nature. The first and best option is always to remove the tiles. NOTE: If the tiles were to come loose it will damage the CreteCote.

Q: How slippery is a CreteCote floor?
A: The finish in terms of slipperiness is very similar to a porcelain tile. A slip-resistant sealer, which contains a fine aggregate, can be used to give your CreteCote floor a bit more grip.

Q: How long after the CreteCote application can you walk on the floor?
A: After 24 hours light foot traffic is allowed for curing and sealing purposes only.

Q: Can I use underfloor heating with a CreteCote floor? 
A: No unfortunately not, underfloor heating can be used with Colour Hardener.

Q: Will my CreteCote floor crack and what measures can be taken to minimise the chances of it happening? 
A: Hairline cracking is normal, by nature cement is not flexible, so movement and temperatures causing expansion and contraction may cause fine hairline cracks. Proper application processes are vital to avoid bigger cracks from appearing.
