Thin Overlay Floor Coatings by SureCrete



Originally intended for use as a thin surface restoration material for concrete substrates, polymer cement overlays were introduced into the architectural concrete and commercial flooring industries in the early 80’s. Subsequently, its use in these industries has become standard. Polymer cement overlays are extremely economical in providing long term, durable renovation without the need for costly and continuous repairs that are typically associated with deteriorating concrete surfaces.




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.



Why Use An Overlay System?


SureCrete’s concrete overlays, consisting of a proprietary blend of Portland cements, various aggregates and polymer resins, have been leading the decorative concrete industry in design standards for nearly 15 years. SureCrete uses only the best quality cements and aggregates which greatly increases the performance characteristics and versatility of our overlay products. Unlike conventional cement and concrete mixes, our polymer-modified cement overlays can be applied thinly or thickly without fear of delamination or typical product failure. In addition, our polymer-modified cement overlays are much more resistant to damage from salt, petrochemicals, UV, harsh weather conditions and traffic wearing.
