POLISHED CONCRETE GUIDLEINES

This product is unique, hence has properties that make it different from man made items. Concrete is a blend of natural stone and sand, making each product individual and will not necessarily mirror samples provided. You will have imperfections in your concrete slab. It is concrete; it can and probably will crack. Large cracks can be filled to eliminate dust traps, and the appearance can be minimized, but they will never disappear.

 Premix Concrete, as a concrete supplier takes no responsibility for the following:

  • Iron staining, colour change, inconsistency with aggregate colour and foreign materials. Aggregates are a natural product and therefore aesthetic and chemical consistency of this material cannot be guaranteed.
  • Colour change due to cement, ie Brightonlite can give a greenish tint due to a change in the raw materials used in the manufacturing of cement, which Premix Concrete S.A  have no control over.
  • Aesthetic suitability of the mix and the structural integrity of the mix, if water, chemicals or powders are added to the mix on site at the request of the concreter or pump operator or any other agent representing the owner of the property.
  • Aesthetic suitability of the mix, and, the structural integrity of the mix if the concrete is not cured in accordance with applicable Australian Standards.
  • Aesthetic suitability of the mix if inappropriate / poor standards of workmanship by the grinders or polishes including the sealers if they are incorrectly applied or are of the wrong colour/consistency etc
  • Inappropriate / poor standards of workmanship by the concrete pump operator, concreter placer eg over/under vibration, Segregation

We advise that all concrete shrinks as it hardens and this can result in cracking. In order to minimise the amount and severity of cracking in floor slabs, it is advised that you contact your structural engineers, so that they are able to assess and take into account soil conditions, slab design thickness, reinforcement and jointing details to ensure the design reflects the expected outcome. Weather conditions play a major part in the development of early cracks.

IMPORTANT NOTES

  • Please give significant lead time when booking  jobs
  • Please make sure balance load is ordered without delay, this will help prevent cold joints and ensure even setting and finishing times.
  • Ensure placement of concrete is in accordance with AS3600 using methods which minimise plastic shrinkage and shrinkage cracking, do not pour if very hot and /or windy – speak to your engineer/architect or builder to confirm this.
  • If using Premix “Vanilla, Diamond, Blizzard or Platinum “products be aware they use Brightonlite cement, which is a HES cement and will have quicker set and drying times.
  • Ensure proper curing practises take place.
