This year marks the first time that the award-winning decorative cement coating line called CimentArt will have distribution in the USA. The Spanish product line is from originator Juan Aranda. It has grown in distribution to 37 countries around the world with more countries each year. An architect named Ketty Miles had seen the product in her home country of Venezuela several years ago. She finally introduced it to the US market
CimentArt first won National awards in Spain for both quality and for being ecologically friendly. Their products have certification with both ISO 14000 and ISO 9001. Additionally, just last month, the company received an award for the best microcement solutions manufacturer 2019 in all Europe.
“You can apply our products on any support (tiles, showers, kitchen countertops, wood, plasterboard, cement, plaster, ceramic and porcelain) and never crack creating a continuous coating with marbling effects, without joints and a maximum thickness of 2 mm” says Ketty Miles. Miles is CEO of the distribution and training center/showroom called CimentArt Florida in Clearwater, Florida. “We are very excited to bring this to the USA!”
Focus on training
The company’s focus on training is another reason the product is taking a hold on the market. Each distributor in charge of training local artisans and plasterers so the application can be as standard as possible. Amazingly the various layers of the base, topcoat, sealer and two-part varnish are strongest the thinner they are. Thus training is important to minimize wasted product as well as generate a strong, beautiful and waterproof wall or floor that is a work of art.
“We have plasterers, painting companies, builders and flooring companies continually booking with us for our training classes and to find out about the product” says Miles. “But if you are a renovator, you may be very impressed with this specifically since this product line will allow covering over old bathroom tile, old countertops or floors with an impermeable beauty that has no grout.”
CimentArt Florida is a central distribution facility. The company distributes the CimentArt product to distributors in the US. They also train artisans in application. CimentArt creates designer finishes for floors, walls, countertops and showers that are beautiful, grout-less finishes without the need to pour structural concrete or demolish old tile and floors. They are located at 418 Laura St. Clearwater, FL 33755, or www.cimentartusa.com
