Single Component Floor Overlay Bag Mixes
SureSpray is our flagship overlay used to resurface both interior and exterior concrete surfaces. It can be troweled, sprayed, and squeegeed. Used with tape and stencil patterns.
SureTex has incredible bond strength to the concrete surface with a specific aggregate formulation allowing it to stand tall and create a variety of slip resistant textures.
SureBroom is our strongest overlay, has the largest aggregate, and is suited for the highest wear surface including vehicular and foot traffic. Trowel or spray applications.
Over time, every concrete surface could use a slight face-lift. We’ve made sure we can provide you with the overlay products you’ll need to create any design, whether for a commercial or residential application. Thinner applications can be achieved beautifully with Micro Spray or Micro Topping, to create a nice blank canvas for staining or to mimic a thin ceramic tile pattern of your choosing.
For a slightly thicker texture depth, we’ve specially blended the very versatile SureTex and SureSpray mixes. Creating “slop-trowelled” or sprayed-on bubble textures commonly used in outdoor patio/entertainment areas, these mixes allow for easy application for your overlay needs. We also provide the SureBroom product for those that simply wish to recreate that brand-new, freshly-poured concrete look.
For creating those deep textures of carved stone or thick, custom-imprinted floors, SureStamp is the product that will best suit your needs. No matter what your design entails, we at SureCrete remain at the forefront of providing you easy access to project-specific overlay mixes to best suit your jobsite needs.
Which Concrete Overlay Do I Need?
Deep Texture Stamped Concrete – Stamp Overlay -SureStamp is a single component, (just add water) stampable cementitious coating, designed for beautifying both interior and exterior concrete surfaces. When stamped, it creates a texture that can resemble a whole array of stamp designs: tile, cut stone, slate, brick, cobblestone, etc. SureStamp offers concrete restoration, repair, resurfacing, architectural accenting and surface protection. SureStamp has Zero VOC’s and is designed to have excellent bond in freeze thaw climates.
Thin Overlay – SureSpray is a single component, (just add water) trowelable or sprayable, cementitious coating for texturing both interior and exterior concrete surfaces. SureSpray delivers a multitude of textures from: trowel down, wet bubble, stencil patterns, euro-stone, bubble texture, etc… Each design contributes to a non skid cementitious surface. Typical areas of application include pool decks, patios, walkways, and driveways for both residential and commercial projects. SureSpray is formulated to provide excellent bonding to new as well as existing concrete surfaces including freeze thaw climates.
Light Texture (Troweled Application) – Knockdown Overlay – SureTex is a single component, (just add water) trowelable or sprayable, cementitious coating for creating a knockdown texture for both interior and exterior concrete surfaces. The knockdown texture contributes to a non skid cementitious surface. Typical areas of application include pool decks, patios, walkways, and driveways for both residential and commercial projects. SureTex is formulated to provide excellent bonding to new as well as existing concrete surfaces including freeze thaw climates.
Broomed “New Concrete” Texture – Broom Finish Overlay – SureBroom is a single component (just add water) cementitious coating that can be applied via trowel, squeegee, or sprayed. SureBroom is designed for leveling and retexturing both interior and exterior concrete surfaces. When broomed, it creates a texture that resembles freshly poured and broomed concrete. Typical areas include parking decks, driveways, sidewalks, parking lots or any horizontal concrete surface requiring repair of spalled areas, low spots, etc. SureBroom is applied with a base coat using squeegees, and then broomed. When applied properly the newly broomed surface creates a slip resistant finish that is ready to be sealed to protect against staining. SureBroom is suitable for heavily trafficked areas and is formulated to provide excellent bonding to new as well as existing concrete surfaces including freeze thaw climates.
Concrete slabs are not installed with the mindset of it being a finished floor. These type of surfaces can include driveways, walkways, basements, patios and sunrooms. Regardless whether they are outside or inside the home or building, every concrete floor can be upgraded to a finished floor through the use of concrete overlays.
Decorative horizontal concrete overlays come in options such as: white or grey cement, self-bonding or dual component, and how thin or thick they can be applied. How should you choose which type to use is not complicated, start by choosing which cement color is best for your project. White concrete overlays allow for brighter and more vibrant color palates and grey will allow for richer and deeper color. Next you need to understand what kind of texture you need. Overlays have the ability to be as thin as a business card or thick enough to create an impression with 3-D visualization. Installing the appropriate texture is made easier when you choose the concrete overlay made with that purpose.
Single component versus dual component seems to be a personal preference rather than one better then another. Dual component overlays start by applying a primer acts as the bonder of the original concrete surface to the newly applied horizontal overlay. Through this process you have a strong chemical bond only. Single components are different in that they give a mechanical and chemical bond to the surface. This is accomplished through the use of dry polymers, activated by water during mixing, and a fine aggregate. This combination acts as hooks in the pores of the concrete surface giving the highest bond strength available.
Polymer cement overlays are used for interior and exterior applications ranging from:
•Skim coat/broom finish concrete resurfacing – Restore and protect damaged, pitted, flaking and stained concrete back to the look of a new concrete surface. See our Sure Broom product for more information.
•Concrete regrading & leveling – Repair and level concrete surfaces that have settled. Check out our Flash Patch and Deep Level products for these applications
•Existing substrate redecorating and renovating – Alter the appearance of existing concrete or wood substrates through applying “thin stamped” or “thin stained” overlays, creating new textures, colors and designs. For use on commercial or resident pool deck, this frequently takes the form of “splatter textures” or “knockdowns,” in which polymer cement is applied to the existing concrete substrate in a moderately textured finish (average of 1/8” thickness) in various patterns. Often, the texture is knocked down with a trowel to slightly modify the appearance and feel of the finished application.
