The winners of this year’s World of Concrete Most Innovative Product awards have been announced. Held annually at World of Concrete, the MIP Award Program showcases many of the new products exhibited at the trade show.
The following are the winners in the Decorative Concrete Materials category.
Receiving the Expert’s Choice award is Stonetec for the Deva Lex 100, a portable floor-engraving three-axis CNC (computer numerical control) machine. When mounted on its frame, the machine becomes a table CNC machine, but it can also be used on existing concrete or stone floors. There were two winners in the Editor’s Choice category. SPD Protector, by Lythic Solutions Inc., is a hybrid product that increases concrete’s resistance to stains, acid etching and liquid penetration. It features a formulation with two advanced technologies — a two-part water-based modified polymer is blended into colloidal silica. Also receiving an Editor’s Choice award was Super Dye by Clemons Concrete Coatings. Super Dye can be reduced with either water or acetone. After a quick stir, the mixture is ready to be applied. There is no need to wait for the dye to sweat in.
Winning this year’s Attendee’s Choice award was Sink Crete, a line of sink molds from Something Better Co.
The MIP Program allows attendees and readers of Hanley Wood publications a chance to vote for the products they judge as innovative.
