About the event

About the technology:

Exposed aggregate surfaces belong to the concrete with unique aesthetic characteristics. Thanks to the stone chips exposed on the surface, they are a practical and durable solution, ideal for creating elegant outdoor surfaces with a stunning effect and at a reasonable price. By polishing this surface, you can get an effect that is almost identical to the "terrazzo", and creates a beautiful, new look.

Fields of application of exposed aggregate concrete:

  • outdoor furniture
  • facade elements
  • road surfaces
  • decoration of squares
  • sidewalks or paths
  • public spaces
  • streets
  • porticos and historical centers.

Practical part of the course includes:

Work with moulds for outdoor furniture and decor in wetcast and hand pressed techniques using deactivators, acid gels and  pigments. While master class we discuss issues related to the arrangement of production: requirements to raw materials and aggregates, tools and equipment used, techniques and concrete mix designs, secrets of optimizing the production process and available application fields.
