Waxed Concrete Flooring

My most recent project has involved the installation of a 10mm self levelling decorative concrete floor at The National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, London.

The material was supplied by a French company, ‘waxed concrete’ is much more widely used on the continent and after this project, I must admit that I am quite a fan.

The mineral composition of the material gives a very natural finish and the use of modern sealers and wax allow a choice of aspects; gloss, satin or matt.

The finished floor is flat, smooth and dense, the sealers and wax ensure that it will stay that way and unlike polished concrete it is not going to crack or deteriorate over time.
