Concrete Countertop Solutions Inc., creators of the Z Counterform and Z Poolform Systems have released two new revolutionary products. First up is their new White Countertop Mix, which will replace the one they are currently selling. This new mix is formulated to be even whiter, stronger, and easier to use than before. It now uses 50% crushed marble aggregate and is able to achieve over a 9800 psi compression strength. It is highly flowable and works incredibly well with their FG50 Fiberglass Mesh and Z Clip system. It’s nearly self-leveling for cast-in-place or pre-cast pours. This mix also has an extremely high flexural strength that allows it to be cast under 1” thick.
Because this mix is able to be cast as thin as 7/8” for a countertop application, its release is coinciding with the launch of their new thinner edge form: the EuroForm. It is a similar design to our popular Square Edge Form, however the front edge is only 1-1/4” thick. “This thinner edge profile has become very popular in the European market and we see it catching on here as well,” said Ed Baldoni, owner of CCS.
“Our European distributor has been asking us to come out with this thinner form for quite some time, but our biggest hiccup was the mix. We needed something strong enough that could be poured at 7/8” and not sag or crack under the stress of the spans and overhangs of a standard countertop. Today we are proud to announce that this product finally exists and it is by far the nicest and easiest mix I have ever used for concrete countertops.”
Z-Clip and Faucet Knockout
In addition, CCS is releasing a new Z Clip and Faucet Knockout. These which will work with both the EuroFrom and a Bright White Color-Pack. You can add this Color-Pack to the White Countertop Mix to make it even whiter. This is ideal for customers looking for the whitest possible solution or who will be polishing the concrete, which will make the concrete appear less white.
Starting today all of these products are available on the Concrete Countertop Solutions website www.concretecountertopsolutions.com. If you have any questions, please reach out to them at [email protected]

Concrete Countertop Solutions began in 2009 from a simple idea. Above all, the idea was “There must be an easier way to build beautiful concrete countertops.”
Ed Baldoni, owner and president, was in the residential construction business for 30 years. It was a growing interest from his customers that lead him into the world of concrete countertops. After many headaches, and a few years, then, the Z Counterform system was born.

With the Z Counterform system at its core, CCS strives to live up to its mission statement and make concrete countertops as simple as possible. In 2014 CCS added the Z Poolform System to its product line. This line brings the same level of innovation to concrete pool coping industry. Subsequently, it is now possible to get an amazing level of detail in a wide range of profiles and textures on concrete pool coping. All this with a reuseable form also that eliminates blowouts, tie wires and many other issues associated with competitors products.
