Polymer cement overlay is a combination of cement, various aggregates and proprietary hybrid polymer resins. The purpose of adding polymer resins to the cement and aggregate is to greatly increase the performance characteristics and versatility of conventional cement and concrete materials.

Unlike conventional cement and concrete mixes, polymer cement overlays can be applied as thins as a single grain of sand or up to several inches thick without fear of delamin- ation or typical product failure. In addition, polymer cement overlays are much more resistant to damage from salt, petrochemicals, UV, harsh weather conditions and traffic wearing.

Polymer cement overlays were originally intended for use as a thin surface restoration material for concrete substrates. With years of successful applications, polymer cement overlays were introduced into the architectural concrete and commercial flooring industry in the early 80s where its use has become an industry norm. Polymer cement overlays are used for interior and exterior applications ranging from:


Designed to restore and protect damaged, pitted, flaking and stained concrete back to the look of a new concrete surface. This application can even be “broom finished.”


Offers the ability to repair and level concrete surfaces that have settled and become unsafe trip hazards. Regrading from several inches thick down to a feathered edge is possible.


Similar to conventional stamped concrete, but only ¼” to ½” thick applied over existing concrete or wood substrate of any condition and at a fraction of hassle, cost and application time. The finished look is that of truly authentic tile, brick, slate, stone, wood plank and more.


Quickly becoming the commercial flooring industries most demanded and specidied finish. A thin layer of polymer cement is applied over existing concrete or wood substrates and chemically stained with single or multiple translucent colors for a natural looking, elegant and durable flooring system. Optional patterns installed with cover type strips, look similar to those used in terrazzo flooring.


The standard for commercial and residential pool deck finishes. Polymer cement is applied to the existing concrete substrate in a moderately textured finish (average of 1/8” thickness) in various patterns. Often the texture is knocked down with a trowel to slightly modify the appearance and feel of the finished application.
