Directions for Use

  • Thoroughly clean substrate, if necessary by grinding with course grit diamonds. Surface must be clean, dry and sound and be ICRI CSP 3 to 5. If FC sheet over timber, caulk joints to ensure no leakage. Generally ensure compliance to the Australian Tiling Standards.

  • Shoot levels (if required) and place edge strips. Maximum panel size 6m x 6m interior, 4.5m x 4.5m exterior with perimeter edge joints.

  • Pre-fil any trenches to ensure maximum depth 30mm.

  • Using a thick paint roller prime with CC Primer (1kg + 1L = 8 sqm) the day prior and again just before pouring.

  • Using a high-shear concrete mixer empty 20kg bags and mix dry for 1 minute. Evenly and gradually add clean water, pre-blended with CC Conditioner at the noted doses and mix for a minimum of 2 minutes. Stop mixer and see if mix consistency is such that it starts to self-level after air expulsion. Add additional water in 100ml increments. Try not to mix longer than 6 minutes. Don't clean mixer between batches.


  • Discharge and spread evenly (can use CC Screed Box), roll with spiked roller, check flatness and thickness.

  • Spray CC Film evaporation retarder immediately after placement of each panel (1l = 8 sqm).

  • After initial set (when able to walk on, usually next morning) spray CC Curehard curing compound and let cure a minimum of 5 days, preferably 10 days minimum.

  • Coarse grind until aggregate is exposed to desired level (approx. 1.5 - 2 mm) and re-apply CC Curehard using a spray and microfibre applicator, let dry. Complete medium grind, re-apply and fine grind. Run 100 resins.

  • Grout - dampen substrate with coloured CC Primer sprinkle CC Coloured Nano-Cement and run with grouting plates or 100 resins. Manually check for any remaining visible airholes and rub with a 100 block. Do only 3 - 4 sqm at a time.

  • Remove surface grout with 100 resins. Spray CC Lithium Super Hardener and spread with a microfibre applicator. Keep wet for 10 minutes, wet mop off.

  • Continue to complete the honing/polishing process to the desired look or P rating. It is important to remove all dust continually through the process.

  • Clean - wash the floor using CC Maintain cleaner and, if honed, buff with a white twister pad (white 3M if polished).

  • Protect - Spray CC Protector and distribute thinly with a microfibre applicator.  Allow  60 minutes to dry and repeat. Next day, buff with a 3M white polishing pad.

  • Maintain - With CC Maintain cleaner.
