Perma-Colours' Flocrete is a decorative thinset (3-5mm) resurfacing material for renovating old or new concrete surfaces. Flocrete is a polymer modified cementitious single pack mix (simply add water) designed to give excellent protective durability, while decorating existing concrete in an unlimited combination of textures, colours and patterns - limited only by the imagination: therefore a great designers product.

Flocrete is a `cohesive'polymer modified cement, chemically structured to grow into the concrete matrix. It is not adhesive or merely `glued' to the concrete surface like other similar products.

How is it done?
  1. The concrete surface is cleaned of all contaminents and then acid etched and waterblasted to clear and activate the concrete pores to accept the flocrete material.

  2. Flocrete is mixed with water and applied by a hopper gun operated by compressed air to the patterned (stencil or filament tape) concrete surface.

  3. Flocrete is allowed to dry, stencil or tape removed, swept or blown clean and then sealed.

Benefits
  • huge cost savings over replacing `tired looking' concrete
  • flocrete provides superior compressive, tensile and flexural strengths giving extra life to concrete
  • installation is applicable to both commercial and residential situations, interior or exterior, horizontal or vertical
  • flocrete will bind to any cementitious product
  • textures can be varied to suit different applications ie. Smooth indoor textures or anti-slip textures for steep driveways or pool surrounds
  • shear bond test - apparatus tinius olsen grade "A" universal testing machine
    Sample condition dry -> 3.25 MPA bond stress average
    Sample condition wet -> 3.27 MPA bond stress average
  • skid resistance - test method AS/NZS 3661.1
    Sample: sealed flocrete -> av. skid resistance value of 67
  • surface hardness - between 7 & 8 on MOHS scale (Note 7 = quartz)
  • abrasion resistance test - BDRI test method B6 - Appendix C
    Average abraded volume = 1.75cm3
    Comparitive results:
    20 MPA concrete pavers: average abraded volume = 9.6
    60 MPA concrete pavers: average abraded volume = 1.2
