The Decorative Concrete Institute and Kemiko have teamed up to introduce a new skimcoat line, Terra Fresco Microtopping by Bob Harris.
Terra Fresco Microtopping is a high-performance cementitious topping that can be integrally colored using Terra Fresco “color paks” for color consistency. The toppings can also be acid-stained or dyed. This versatile product can be used for both interior and exterior applications and can transform worn and distressed concrete. When installed following Kemiko’s product technical guidelines, Terra Fresco Microtopping will provide a long-wearing, architecturally pleasing surface.
The dissolving color paks integrally color the microtopping without the need to weigh or measure pigment. Simply pop one bag of Terra Fresco color pak (bag and all) into the polymer and mix for roughly 30 seconds. Next add the Terra Fresco powder and mix for an additional 2 to 3 minutes, and you have an integrally colored microtopping that is consistent from batch to batch.
Training workshops for the new skimcoats, as well as a new line of dyes released by this partnership, are held at the Decorative Concrete Institute.
