Simpler, smoother concrete floor finishing

Home Engineering Engineers, Consulting Engineers & Project Management Simpler, smoother concrete floor finishing

THE success of a durable and functional floor lies in the ability to produce a quality finish, typically characterised by a smooth and consistent surface, whether in an industrial or decorative setting.

That’s according to Chryso Southern Africa which said that finishing concrete floors by troweling or floating has never been easier using its FiniSafe product.

“Spraying Chryso FiniSafe on the surface just before the finishing operation commences, improves the finishability of the concrete surface. This makes it possible for the operator to finish the surface faster and with less effort, whether floating mechanically or manually,” the company said in a statement.

As this concrete aid allows the mechanical trowel to pass over the surface more efficiently, machine performance is optimised by reducing wear and tear on the blades.

The product is safe for application on all types of concrete surfaces that require troweling, including standard concrete and industrial flooring and precast products. It may be used safely on both indoor and outdoor concrete as it has no odour and contains no VOCs.

Chryso FiniSafe does not affect the colour or the appearance of the concrete and may be used with confidence on all decorative concrete surfaces.

When using this product, no water is added during floating or troweling, minimising the potential for unsightly efflorescence appearing on concrete elements or weakened surfaces which will tend to dust, when put into use. Other surface treatments may be applied to the floated surface, without any additional preparation.

“With the use of Chryso FiniSafe, a smoother finish is achieved with better surface densification; exactly what is expected by clients and designers, when specifying a concrete floor.”
