If you’ve been considering polished concrete for your next project, until now there have only been two choices available. Either grind the existing concrete floor or install a concrete screed in excess of 50mm thick over the existing floor.
There are significant limitations associated with polishing existing concrete; The contractor cannot guarantee what the finished product will look like until they have finished grinding, footprints and screed marks are almost always noticeable, inconsistent aggregate exposure, cracking, colour uncertainty and more. Because of its thickness, it is very difficult to install to existing properties. The screed will add large additional weight and will result in several issues with meeting existing door and window heights. The process is inefficient and can result in substandard finishes. The whole process is a messy one and will always crack.
Depending on the concreter’s experience, this type of finish will in all likelihood have inconsistent aggregate exposure.
Being a veneer, it can be finished at thicknesses from as little as 6mm-15mm. Typically 10mm is an average thickness which can adjoin other floor coverings such as tiles, timber and carpet enabling it to be unique and complementary to other floor finishes. The PCV can be installed on top of concrete, timber, stable tiles and other sound substrates. Pangæa PCV™is seamless and dimensionally stable, therefore no expansion joints or saw cuts are necessary unless there are existing saw cuts in the substrate or existing movement/construction joints (these must be honoured). This allows for minimal maintenance and most importantly means cleaning is as simple as a mop and neutral cleaner as there are no grout lines! Pangæa PCV™ has been designed and engineered to be consistent in colour and aggregate exposure so a Pangæa PCV™ floor installed in Melbourne can be made to replicate one in Perth. However, the Pangæa PCV™ is not limited to one look, another popular benefit of Pangæa PCV™ is the ability to control the gloss levels and to an extent, the aggregate exposure. Pangæa PCV™ comes in a range of colours, aggregates and finishes. The process of selecting your Pangæa PCV™ floor is easy;
1. Select one of our 11 colours on offer
2. Select from our range of aggregates (3 standard and for larger projects our specialty range)
3. Select satin or gloss finish in our full polish system or matte to gloss in our coated finish
With so many benefits, its not hard to see why the interest in Pangæa PCV™ is vastly expanding.
