With Concrete countertops now a standard material in kitchens and outdoor living spaces, once you’ve decided to use them for your next project the decision becomes what concrete countertop mixes work best?
Requirements for Countertop Mixes
Along with a superior-quality cement component, countertop mixes must have the appropriate amount of aggregate, polymer, anti foaming agents and various other ingredients. In addition, the best concrete countertop mixes allow for a range of water inclusion that creates different consistencies. All of these factors play an important role in both the strength and performance of the finished product. With a proper formula and when mixed correctly, concrete countertop mixes prevent micro-cracks; protects against temperature and humidity change; and resists chemicals, abrasions, impacts, and stains.
