Polished Concrete Flooring in Coffee Shop in NYC

Combination of self-leveling concrete overlay and microtopping was used in Coffee Beans outlet on broadway in NYC to create a polished concrete floor.

Decorative Concrete

The decorative concrete system used by Diversified Concrete Surfaces featured here was a combination of self leveling concrete, Skraffino, integral color, topical dyes, epoxy sealer with a urethane top coat. This system is a winner for retail stores and restaurants looking for a unique image and durability with low maintenance.

Our network of contractors have been applying this system throughout NYC and nationwide. It’s functional and innovative with unlimited decorative options.

Let’s break it down.

Param 5500 is our self leveling concrete overlay. It can applied at 1/4 – 1/2 inch thickness. This product solves height and uneven floors. When you need to adjust floor height to match door jams or floor vents, or if you need to solve a code issue relating to height of steps, this is a problem solver.

Skraffino is a concrete microtopping coating applied in very thin multiple layers. It produces a natural appearance especially with topical application of dyes. It comes in three different grades – Regular, Fine and Superfine. On a smooth surface like self leveling concrete, one coat of Fine and one coat of Superfine is recommended. The sames system is recommended when it is applied over vertical surfaces. If Skraffino is applied over a rough surface or exterior surfaces like pool deck, driveway, etc., then one or two coats of Regular Skraffino is recommended.

Our water based epoxy sealers provide a first level of protection with tremendous adhesion to Skraffino. Our polyurethane top coat tops it off with a sealer that is extremely durable while enhancing the appearance. We have three different types of Polyurethane available – gloss, satin and matte. The clients in New York City prefer matte Polyurethane top coat.

For additional protection the urethane is compatible with wax coats. For high traffic areas seeking customized and unique curb appeal this is a great system.
