3. Initial Curing: It will then be covered with a thin plastic film and left to cure for 10 days. No underfloor heating or heaters can be used during the curing stages within the surrounding area of the concrete project.
4. Striking Formwork: After 10 days the formwork (mould) and the plastic film will be taken off and blankets will be provided to protect from dust and to keep the worktop warm and cosy. At this stage the concrete is very vulnerable to moisture and staining until it is sealed.
5. Final Curing: It is left cure for a further 10-18 days; this is dependent on the ambient temperature and cannot be rushed.
6. Polishing & Sealing: The worktops will then be polished and sealed. This process takes approx. 2 days. We will apply up to three coats of our sealer, leaving enough time in between each coat for full effectiveness.
Our concrete worktops cost from £1,000 per square metre fully installed. If you would like more information on our concrete kitchen work surfaces or would like an immediate quote, please get in touch.
