If caulk or any other fillers used on the mould; it must be fully hard and dry before Countertop Mix pour. Picks up the finish of the mould. Can polish with diamond pad to expose the aggregate. Add any stones that are dense enough to polish and when using glass, it should be tumbled otherwise the glass might not bond sufficiently with the cement.

Use Colour Hardener Stone counter and floor in the kitchen. If cracks appear, reminder that hairline cracking is normal, by nature cement is not flexible, so movement and temperature variances causing expansion and contraction and shrinkage may cause fine hairline cracks. This is part of the natural element of a cement finish and adds to the unique look and feel. However the correct preparation and application processes are vital to avoid bigger cracks from appearing. Also adding expansion joints, dividing your cement floor into big blocks, can help to allow for movement and could prevent larger cracks from appearing.

It is a two coat system that produces a 1.6mm smooth decorative finish ideal for internal domestic renovations. Comes complete with powder and catalyst as a twin-pack.

CreteCote applied over tiles is possible 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 slate 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.
