Clear, Thin-Mil Floor Coatings

The Look of Polished Concrete without the Hassle

  • Use the natural beauty of your concrete floor
  • Go with high sheen or matte finish
  • May include high-wear, tabular aluminum for extreme scratch resistance
  • Low maintenance
  • Common choice for commercial and industrial floor coatings

Clear, thin-mil coatings are often referred to as “nude floors”, since the underlying concrete shows completely.   The coatings can be combined with other flooring choices to create stunning results, such as:

  • Dyes – translucent color to the existing cement paste
  • Integral color – color is added to the concrete before installation
  • Acid staining – concrete is permanently changed using special acids
  • Colored aggregate – add colored stones or other materials to the concrete during final flatwork
