Diversified Services. Uncompromising Quality

POLISHED CONCRETE is the one of the fastest growing market segments in decorative concrete today. Over the last decade, it has become one of the most viable flooring solutions for commercial, industrial and also the residential flooring. If you are an architect, designer, builder or contractor, polished concrete toppings are the smart alternative for renovations or new construction projects that require a durable, fast-track, cost effective, eco-friendly, low maintenance flooring option.

At Old Stone Restoration, we can always grind and polish nearly any existing structurally sound concrete floors. However, any projects that requires a high-performance flooring with customizable uniform seamless finish across their floor surface, the answer is Self-Leveling Overlays. There are many good Self-Leveling Concrete Overlay Products on the market today. However among them all as an installing contractor at Old Stone Restoration we like to work with CTS Rapid-Set Products.

The TRU PC Self-Leveling Overlay Products from CTS Rapid-Set are able to give us the controlling-edge that we need at Pouring and finishing stage. Longer flow-time, fast curing, highly customizable uniform finish with ease of achieving high clarity and reflectivity are some of the benefits that we get with using TUE PC Self-Leveling Overlays on our projects.

HERE ARE THE PROCESS

OF SELF-LEVELING POLISHED OVERLAY

5. SEALER: Surface will be sealed with using appropriate sealer to help prevent true stains.

4. GRIND and POLISH: In 24 hour’s surface can be grind wet or dry with using combinations of metal, ceramic and resin bond diamond abrasives to achieve a desired finish.

3. MIX AND PLACEMENT: Mixing and installing one of the Rapid Set® TRU® products at a minimum depth of 3/8". All joints will be honored and optional; colorants and aggregates will be added at this stage with using appropriate mixing equipment and placement tools.

2. PRIME: Surface will be primed with using alkali-resistant fast-track Rapid Set® TXPTM Epoxy Primers. Our alkali-resistant TXP Epoxy Primer with full broadcast of 20 to 30 mesh dry silica sand. Suitable for substrates exhibiting an RH of up to 100% Cure time: Rapid Set® TXP SuperFast = 2-1⁄2 to 3 hours Rapid Set® TXP Fast = 4 to 6 hours

1. PROFILE SUBSTRATE: Existing concrete floors will be mechanically prepare by shot blasting to obtain an ICRI CSP 3 to 5 profile. All joints will be honored and all loose, unsound, contaminated material will be removed. Suitable substrates require a minimum 3,000 psi (20.7 MPa) and a minimum density of 100 pcf (pounds per cubic foot) all cracks will be filled with the appropriate crack repair material.

ADVANCED

CEMENT TECHNOLOGY

CTS offers a complete line of fast-track high-strength decorative toppings, underlayments and repair materials, all formulated with our durable Rapid Set® BCSA cement technology that is built to last. TRU polished toppings are available in three (3) different high- quality aggregate appearances, in a variety of colors and aggregate exposures that can achieve both design and performance goals.

TRU toppings are designed to be very dense and produce a high-quality polished finish that meets the slip coefficient of the polished community. Due to their high surface hardness, our polished toppings are capable of producing polished finishes with high reflectivity and excellent clarity like traditional concrete. When the level of flatness that can be gained is combined with our dense self-leveling concrete, the finished polished flooring is capable of reflecting images like a mirror, without waves or distortion. Reflections will look sharp and clear without a haze.

All TRU toppings are engineered for excellent adhesion to new (28 day old) or existing concrete substrates with long term durability. Our fast- track TRU toppings can be ground wet or dry to easily produce a uniform aggregate exposure.

TRU® SC

SELF-LEVELING

(1)TRU PC Self-Leveling is a high-performance topping with a specialized aggregate that simulates the appearance of polished concrete.

TRU®

SELF-LEVELING

(3)TRU Self-Leveling is a high-performance, professional-grade, hydraulic cement-based, architectural topping engineered for polishing. It is durable in wet or dry conditions. TRU Self-Leveling grinds and polishes much like concrete. It can achieve high clarity and reflectivity due to its high density and excellent surface hardness.

Since TRU has more of a cream polished appearance, it has been widely used as the matrix for custom aggregate flooring. Many flooring contractors are creative with the the way they use TRU to simulate terrazzo flooring by mixing marble, stone and glass chips with TRU. The chips can vary in size and color, and by adding integral coloring with the TRU, there are numerous design possibilities.

APPEARANCE

When polished, the TRU has a uniform cream polished appearance, with slight visible aggregate exposure, like a mirror, without waves or distortion. Reflections will look sharp and clear without a haze. Available in Natural or Gray base.
