CUPS Yogurt

Cups, a self-serve yogurt store chose Bomanite Micro-Top for its ability to provide custom colors and graphics that matched the cool vibe of the store. Bomanite Licensee, Beyond Concrete, had to first remove the extensive existing glue and surface and do some much needed crack patching. Once the Bomanite Micro-Top overlay was in place Bomanite Hydrocoat sealer and Bomanite Interior Floor Finish were applied to provide the low-maintenance and protection needed for the day to day foot traffic.

Micro-Top by Bomanite is a cutting-edge technology, that uses a paper-thin concrete medium, that provides a coloration system like no other. Utilizing a troweled-on cementitious topping that tenaciously bonds to virtually any substrate, including concrete, wood, metal, plastic or asphalt, Micro-Top succeeds where other coloring methods have failed. Micro-Top provides a canvas where works of art are graphically produced, utilizing custom logos, unlimited graphics, swirls of color or marbleized hues to reach the perfect color combination.

Micro-Top can transform damaged concrete or an expanse of plain, gray concrete into a distinctive and dynamic area, bringing bold colors and designs where they’ve never been before. Micro-Top is an ideal replacement for carpeting or laminate flooring-no costly blasting is necessary before application-resulting in significant savings of time and money and making it perfect for that retail makeover.

University of Missouri – Brady Commons

PROJECT SPECIFICATIONS/INFORMATION

Description:

The nickname for the University of Missouri in Columbia is “Mizzou”. When drawing up the plans to renovate and expand the Brady Student Commons into a new Student Center, the school naturally wanted to incorporate the beloved “Mizzou” name into the design. They decided to accomplish this using Micro-Top on a 10’ – 4” wide circular band spanning 340’ of the main walk area. The lettering template was created based on the font information provided by the University. Layout of the color separations and placement of the logos was difficult because interior walls were constructed before the layout was complete. After grinding the floor and applying the base coat, finish coats were applied in three colors, followed by a wax coat. Edges had to be cut to keep the layout after grinding, and for outside carpet lines.

Due to a tight schedule, multiple crafts were working in the same area. Foot bridges were built across the Micro-Top in a number of places to provide access from one side to the other. In order to protect the work in progress, the Micro-Top had to be covered with Masonite every day after work, and then covered in craft paper and Masonite after completion, until all construction was complete. The result of all this hard work and attention to detail is a meeting place sure to instill “Mizzou” pride in all its visitors
