Title: Self-Smoothing Floors Based on Polymer-Cement Concrete
Author(s): Johan Alexanderson
Publication: Concrete International
Appears on pages(s): 49-51
Keywords: floors; polymer-cement concrete; pumped concrete; smoothing; surface roughness; Construction
Abstract:Since the late 1970s, the development of self-smoothing floors has been intensive in Scandinavia. The finish surfaces are normally 1/4 to 1/2 in. thick and are made of polymer-cement concrete. The mixes are sufficiently fluid so that they can be pumped and flow by themselves onto an uneven concrete surface to form a smooth surface without any kind of manual treatment. This labor-saving technique makes it possible to cover 3000 ftý per hr, giving great time savings compared to conventional methods.
