hallo tom, i did polished concrete floors at the start then we found some people wanted us to do matching countertops and islands.we did a few nice jobs using the wet cast and exposing the aggregate to different degrees we added coloured glass to some units i was involved with another lad and he wanted to push on much faster than i did, so we parted company he is still busy however he is finding it difficult to survive. some people wont pay and others cant i think if you could produce some nice benches maybe outdoor barbeque countetops  or tables , street furniture ,i will check and see what sealers we used  i normally left the buying to the other lad so i didnt take a lot of interest in the brand we used Paddy

Hi Tom,  Last time I bought some I paid £22.00/ 25kg from (though they said it was going up to £25 next time) . I weigh it into zipper-lock bags of 1kg, lasts for ages that way.

Hey Tom,


Xylexin is still our finish of choice for a client. It has proven (in an anecdotal manner) to be very tough and stain resistant. I just purchased a depth gauge so can't speak about thickness yet, but next application. I also plan on making several samples for stain testing trials.


What I've found in the field is that it will scratch, but they can be buffed out or recoated easily. It hasn't allowed a stain yet, more deliberate testing is on the way however.


Privately, I have developed a preference for a penetrating sealer and wax. It just looks sharper to me.


Good Luck
