Application

Floor

Designer Flooring

Designer flooring with White Cement makes your floor space a personal work of art. With marble powder, coarse aggregates and cast at site with a mixture of White Cement, you have the freedom to recreate anything you want, from paintings to unique patterns. The addition of glass, metal, stone/plastic dividing strips, coloured mortar mixes and colour pigments can further enhance the appeal of your floor. Once laid, the floor can be mirror-polished to get a perfect gloss. Just the perfect touch to elevate the ambience of your home.

Mosaic Tiles

Mosaic tiles create a rich tapestry of designs on the floor with small pieces of coloured enamel glasses or marble chips inlayed in cement. Manufactured in hydraulic presses under controlled conditions, these tiles are durable, dense and water-tight, and boast of a hard-to-wear surface. White Cement is the perfect base for making mosaic tiles, brightening the colours and imparting inherent strength. They are perfect for homes, hotels, swimming pools and any other place that could use a touch of style.

Paver Tiles

Exterior floors play just as important a role in creating an avant-garde look as interior floors. Paver tiles made with a White are perfect for such applications with a wide variety of colours and designs. What’s more, they are strong and durable; perfect for floor applications exposed to a lot of wear. Another significant advantage is that they can easily be repaired or replaced at a fractional cost of what you would incur in case of concrete floors.

Marble Flooring

Though marble stone is naturally white and elegant, it’s also translucent and porous in nature. If marble is laid on a grey cement base, it starts to look dull and grey, losing its aesthetic charm. An effective wayto prevent this is to lay it on a thin layer of White Cement in the form of slurry. This acts as a white separator reflecting 100% light and preventing the grey cement from penetrating through and ruining the look of your marble.

Walls

Stonecrete

The exterior walls of your home can get an elegant stone finish with White Stonecrete. This is a white cement plaster with an Ashlar stone finish, and offers a wide range of colours and textures to choose from. It’s a cost-effective option to natural stone cladding for exterior surfaces. It also offers the advantages of being weather-resistant, long-lasting and low on maintenance. All it takes to prepare a perfect mix is one part of White Cement and one part of coarse dolomite powder/quartz sand. Pigments could be added to get the desired shade. After applying on the walls, the surface should be levelled and cured for two days. In addition, the surface needs to be chiselled to give it the exquisite Ashlar stone finish.

Grit Wash

If you want a rough and tough finish, Grit Wash is the right choice for you. Better known as Exposed Aggregate Plaster,

this hardy decorative finish can easily withstand harsh weather conditions. A mortar of White Cement, dolomite powder and chips in a ratio of 2.5:1:6 is perfect for Grit Wash. Before the application, the surface should be levelled with a float. After an initial setting of 1-2 hours, the Grit Wash surface should be scrubbed gently with a nylon brush and water to remove the cement on top of the chips and to expose the aggregates.

Tyrolean

Tyrolean is a decorative finish, suitable for both interior and exterior walls. Available in various colours, its textured sand-face finish gives the wall an attractive look. Also, it’s an economical, long-lasting and maintenance-free plaster. For Tyrolean plastering, mix three parts of White Cement with one part of marble powder and one part of coarse white sand or fine grains of marble chips. Add colour to get the desired shade, and apply two coats. When the surface is completely dry, a coat of silicon should be applied to keep it dust-free.

Cement Wash

White Cement Wash imparts a durable lustrous matt finish to walls. It also acts as a primer coat for decorative paints, filling up minor cracks and crevices. Ideal for interior as well as exterior walls, it can be easily applied by using a brush or spray. That’s why, it’s the most preferred one amongst painters and masons. White Cement Wash is also economical as compared to other options, which makes it perfect for commercial complexes, government offices and educational institutions or any other place, where there’s a budget constraint.

Cement Paint

Cement Paint protects as well as beautifies exterior walls from harsh weather conditions. It is durable, economical and comes in a variety of shades. White enhances the cement paint’s lustre and brings out the pigment’s true colours. What’s more, its low alkaline content prevents fading. For a perfect composition, add one part of water to two parts of cement paint and stir well to get a consistent paste. Add one more portion of water of the same quantity. Stir and apply on the prepared surface. Cure the surface with water for 2-3 days to get a perfect finish.
