CEMEX is a well-known and respected producer of cement, aggregates and ready-mixed concrete. In addition to standard structural concretes, the company offers unusual DECO STONE decorative concretes.
DECO STONE are surface concretes with exposed aggregate. They are also sometimes referred to as washed concretes, due to the technology of their manufacture.
DECO STONE can be designed in a wide range of colors and textures. To choose - the color of the concrete matrix - from natural gray to the color obtained through the use of pigments. Another element that determines the appearance is the type and fraction of aggregate - natural fine- or coarse-grained gravels or broken aggregates with a fixed color scheme, such as light gray granites, black basalts or dark Devonian dolomites. The final factor determining the appearance of the pavement is the depth of washout - there are several variations that can be used depending on the fraction of aggregate used.
DECO STONE products are pavement concretes of strength class C30/37 and exposure class XF3 or XF4, that is, fully resistant to frost, as well as to de-icing agents.
They are not overgrown with greenery and are easy to keep clean. They are made using monolithic technology, that is, they are poured directly on site. Expansion joints are necessary, which can be achieved either by proper planning of working fields or by cutting the expansion joints with a concrete saw. Instead of cut expansion joints, lines can be made from small-size elements, such as stone or pavers.
