Choosing Concrete Countertop Mixes


If you work in construction and you build residential homes for your clients, then one very important area to focus on is the kitchen. People love a dream kitchen that allows them to spend time with their family, cook delicious meals, and entertain guests. Of course, one important element in the kitchen is the countertop. These days, more people are choosing concrete because it is durable, beautiful, and extremely hard to damage. You probably already know that it is also cost effective.

When you begin offering concrete countertops, then you will want to find a mix that works well for your clients and is versatile enough to use in almost any situation whether you use concrete countertop forms or not.

According to some, you could choose to make your own concrete mix, but that takes a lot of time and patience. And, if you don't have a really good recipe, then it wont work out well and your clients will not be happy. An engineered concrete mix is the better option, but you have to choose a high-grade type that will look good and work well in many situations.

Thats why you should consider options by Concrete Countertop Solutions including our White Countertop Mix. This high quality mix is designed specifically for countertops and it offers many advantages. These include:

  • A white mix that can work well with stains and integral colors of your choice, making it versatile for any home construction project

  • A quick cure mixture that will be ready for polishing in just 24 hours

  • A reactive fiber system that is designed to ensure the countertops are durable, strong, and long lasting

  • A mixture that doesn't curl or shrink

  • High strength 9700 psi @ 28 days

  • Can be cast as thin as 1" for countertop applications (this requires our Euro-form)

In addition to our own White Countertop Mix, we carry a selection of additives that strengthen particular store bought mixes. Our most popular, Z Liquicrete, contains a proprietary blend of specially formulated additives and ultra fine acrylic fibers that will transform a 60 lb. bag of standard concrete sand mix into a high strength flowable concrete mix that easily flows through the 1"x1" FG50 Fiberglass mesh grid. The mix is easily troweled smooth and yields a high strength fiber reinforced countertop.

Our second additive, Counter Pack, is a multi-component ad-mixture kit for converting a standard 60 lb bag of concrete mix into a high performance, easy to finish concrete countertop mix. This is primarily used if you plan on using welded wire or rebar as your reinforcement, as the mix is a bit thicker.

Concrete countertops are now more popular than ever, certainly something DIY'ers are getting into, along with contractors offering their customers. Consider our White Countertop Mix or one of our additives. They will offer the versatility, strength and style that you want for much less!
