Concrete is a hardwearing and strong material, which has been used for years in, for example, the building industry. But being used in a kitchen work top, concrete works really well too. It gives a cool and rustic look in any kitchen, from modern to country chic. It creates a focal point in your kitchen because of the natural way of colour switching.
The composition of a concrete worktop could be compared to a concrete floor or bridge. It is just as strong and hard-wearing. It is the special after-care which makes the difference. It becomes smoother and less porous.
Concrete is a mixture of sand, stones and cement. We add some excipients and color of your choice.
The created substance gets mixed up with water and poured into a mold. The worktop gets taken out of the mold after hardening. It is time for the next process.
The last step of making a concrete worktop is the protection. We created an unique compaction method thanks to years of experience. This compaction method contains as little air as possible. This is the reason why our worktops are stronger, less porous and have less chance of staining than the traditional worktops.
Benefits of concrete:
- A solid, long-lasting, high quality product.
- It is able to withstand tempratures up to 400 ℃ (using coasters is recommended).
- Strong and fairly scratchproof.
- Unique characteristics like shrinkage cracks, craquelé and beautiful color changes.
- Easy to clean, hygienic.
- Available in any color of choice.
- Marks of use makes your worktop “alive”.
Concrete could contain a few air bubbles. This is inherent to the product and makes it unique.
Concrete gets poured into a mold whilst it’s wet, and warms up whilst it is setting. Little shrinking cracks could show when the concrete cools down again.
Concrete contains chalk and this makes your worktop stain-sensitive. Most people get to appreciate the marks of use.
Try not to spill any acids on your surface, if so remove them immediately. We recommend to poor acids in the sink as much as possible.
We also recommend to use a cutting board and coasters.
