Fundamentals of GFRC

Posted on 11 July 2014 by cradmin

This video, produced by ModaCrete and Mike Cook (a well known member of the concrete countertop industry), covers the “Fundamentals of GFRC” and was put together so that individuals can get an idea of the complexities of producing high performance concrete countertops with GFRC technologies. It is not all encompassing but will deliver the basics. Cook said the next step is “developing the necessary, physical skill sets required to be successful with GFRC.” And for that, he suggests hands-on training.

There are some good insights here for those exploring GFRC and the world of concrete countertops – give it a look. Or check out these other videos related to concrete countertops.

And, as always, let us know if you have other videos you think we should share on the subject, or any countertop-related subject.

ModaCrete Introduces Pamako Concrete Countertop Sealer

Posted on 05 March 2014 by cradmin

pamako-bottleModaCrete introduced Pamako CCS (Concrete Countertop Sealer), which was specifically designed for high performance concrete countertops. The sealer may also be used on other types of concrete as long as a high performance admixtures are used, in conjunction with common practices of concrete densification, if needed. It has not been tested for other masonry or stone type uses. According to the company, the sealer penetrates easily and deeply into the surface and remains until cured, rather than concentrating on the surface. This allows it to form a thick crust, but at the same time harden the surface sufficiently in order to resist erosion from wear and use, as well as densify the surface well enough to resist chemical attack. It also prevents penetration of moisture, while at the same time allowing moisture to escape. It also expands and contracts uniformly with the concrete so as not to cause flaking or delamination. The sealer is also reportedly non-corrosive, easy to use and apply, economical in material and labor of application and retains its performance effect indefinitely. It also delivers spot repairability, if necessary, and is UV-stable.
