The existing slabs were showing shrinkage cracks from a previous installation, therefore the client needed a product that wouldn’t crack, require little maintenance, and add an updated look to the residential complex as well as be weather resistant.
Bomanite Toppings Systems, Broadcast Aggregate with Bomanite Florspartic 100 was chosen to replace the flooring on the existing breezeways. This product can be installed in cold temperatures, has a short dry time, high durability, and low maintenance. A great solution for a high-traffic residential complex. The entire courtyard flowed with harmonizing colors and textures inherent in each feature.
This product had to be installed while tenants were occupying the building, but due to the short dry time it was easier to work around the tenants. This product was an excellent choice because of low maintenance, high durability, high slip-resistance, and a color choice that complimented the exterior finish.
Bomanite Broadcast Aggregate System is a multi-layered architectural and protective flooring system with a non-skid decorative or functional aggregate surface locked in place with two component high performance binders. Bomanite Broadcast Aggregate uses a multitude of surface seeded fine aggregates such as colored quartz, silica carbide or other hard minerals to create a highly durable, low maintenance surface that, dependant on binders used, is easy to clean and maintain in a wide variety of environments.
A standard Bomanite Broadcast application utilizes Bomanite Florspartic 100 as the primer, binder and top-coat. This zero VOC fast track flooring system can be applied over prepared concrete and suitable cementitious toppings to form a seamless surface ideal for residential, industrial and commercial applications such as garage floors, indoor swimming pool decks, commercial kitchens, light manufacturing and chemical processing etc. Standard Broadcast Aggregate Systems are 1/8” in thickness, can be applied with a seamless cove, will bridge minor non-working cracks and are highly resistant to most chemicals.
For information on the use of other Bomanite high performance primers, binders and coatings as part of the Broadcast Aggregate system, please consult with Bomanite Technical Services for product selection and application information. Consult the Bomanite Florspartic 100 Technical Bulletin for information concerning chemical resistance and finished coating properties for a standard Bomanite Broadcast Aggregate installation.
