Metro Mix Concrete specialises in manufacturing and distributing customisable Polished Concrete mixes throughout Melbourne.
The days when concrete came in a single finish are long gone no more unappealing, grey, flat matt concrete that tended to streak when exposed to weather. Back then, great strength and durability of concrete was its only desirable attribute and we put up with a lot of extremely unattractive buildings in deference to that key virtue.
Nowadays though, architects, designers and DIY builders are increasingly turning to Polished Concrete for stylish and attractive solutions in new buildings and refurbishment projects.
The options are almost endless now when it comes to creating new polished concrete mixes, from using standard grey cement and basic aggregates all the way through to blending white and grey cement, adding colour pigments and using a large variety of quality aggregates sourced throughout Victoria.
Additives have also become a big part of a quality mix helping with strength and shrinkage characteristics of Polished Concrete mixes.
Not only used for flooring applications, polished concrete is now being used to create stunning fireplace hearths, BBQ benchtops, basins and so much more!
Other choices to be made with Polished Concrete is your desired level of exposure which in basic terms relates to how much aggregate you want to see.
Options begin at Nil Exposure (little to no aggregate seen) Minimal Exposure (very little aggregate seen) Random Exposure (also know as Salt & Pepper or 50/50 aggregate seen) Full Exposure (100% aggregate seen)
Finally before your concrete is finished you will need to select your desired sheen level, choices of a matt/satin finish or fully polished to 3000 grit leaving you with that mirror finish.
As well as its visual appeal, Polished Concrete is extremely easy to maintain and keep clean. A simple dust and mop with warm water and it’s looking as good as the day it was polished.
With our large selection of Polished Concrete mixes and abundant choice of aggregates allows our customers imagination to run riot.
While retaining its matchless durability and resistance to wear for which Polished Concrete is so highly prized, it can be easily sculpted to create shapes and structures that would be impossible to achieve with any other material.
