Terrazzi finish at CRG Gallery New York

On my recent trip to visit Paul Huneck at Hudson Concrete, an unexpected opportunity came up to show our latest Cast-on technique over Arapido to create a Terrazzi finish.

Conclusion : Cast-on adds an interesting dimension to the surface matrix and improves the polishing results.

The Terrazzi surface was applied over a new self- leveled concrete floor that was showing up unwanted curing lines due to protection cardboard. 

Those important concrete details;

Polishing the Terrazzi edges with a 4 inch variable hand polisher and dry diamond pads.

We place these pads also under the larger 17' floor machine to polish the field areas.

So Important:
Always spray apply the first coat of sealer. This eliminates the possibility of roller or applicator lines.Second coat can be applied with applicator.

Keep the pressure up and apply a very thin coat.

 With a closer look:
The polished concrete micro topping creates subtle depth and character on a very smooth floor surface without detracting form the wall art.

No rivalries here!

the Terrazzi floor acts as a perfect backdrop for objects of art.
After the floor was sealed with Deco Seal Supreme two coats of a flat wax floor finish were applied to assist for easy maintenance.

Special thanks to the owners of CRG Gallery:
Carla, Richard and Glenn for their trusting support.
Making quick decisions allowed the installation to proceed very rapidly.
