Versatile Building Products (formerly Versatile Deck Coatings) has introduced the Banco-Cast High Performance Counter Top System. Banco-Cast, designed for use in decorative concrete countertops and castings, is a specially formulated blend of fastsetting, shrinkage-compensated portland cement, additives, aggregate and polymer. Installations are significantly faster than with other concrete blends, due to the use of a specially proportioned cement blend that rapidly hydrates mixing water. This eliminates the need for curing while providing an accelerated strength development that allows the installer to seal, grind or polish the surface within four hours of pouring. Installations of Banco-Cast range from 1.5" to 4" in thickness. The product is supplied in a white base that can be tinted with 16 standard colors or custom blends. It readily accepts most stains, dyes and other topical treatments.
