Exposee by Bomanite is a patented system that utilizes a proprietary mixture of powders to which decorative aggregates are added, Exposee by Bomanite creates an aggregate containing a cementitious layer that permanently secures the decorative aggregates, with a portion of the aggregate exposed. The resulting finish has a load bearing capacity of slab on grade concrete with a hardened wear layer comparable in durability to stone or terrazzo. Available in a multitude of colors with exposed fine stone, glass or other exotic aggregate blends, the design options are endless. This durable, single pour system allows for installation in highly decorative areas such as where marble or granite would be utilized. However, unlike natural stone or manufactured unit paving that requires a base slab to provide its load bearing capacity and resistance to settling or heaving, Exposee by Bomanite meets and exceeds these requirements in one application. With the aggregate mixed into the Exposee prior to pouring, a more even, consistent finish will result and increase the lifespan of the decorative surface.
Sandwash Texture™ by Bomanite is designed for outdoor applications where an alternative to a conventional concrete finish is required. Utilizing specialized mix designs, additives, topical treatments and advanced application procedures, Sandwash Texture™ by Bomanite resembles sand blasted concrete with consistency in fine sand exposure. Incorporating specialized colored sands and/or aggregates exceeding 3/8 â€³ diameter will allow for variation in texture and color. The finish is an economical alternative to other decorative concrete finishes while producing a monolithic concrete slab at low life-cycle cost due to the pre-aged nature of the surface. Used in combination with a variety of color and staining options, Sandwash Texture™ by Bomanite creates consistent texture and durable hardscapes ideal for plazas, walkways, shopping centers, schools and more.
