The seamless resin terrazzo system Mondéco Crystal will be launched to Africa’s construction industry at this year’s Totally Concrete Expo. Designed to create large expanses of eye-catching flooring, Mondéco Crystal (//www.flowcretesa.co.za/our-products/mond%C3%A9co/mond%C3%A9co-crystal/) incorporates light reflective glass aggregates into the system’s resin material to produce a glittering lustre across the floor finish.
Flowcrete South Africa (//www.flowcretesa.co.za/) will be unveiling the system to Africa’s architects, developers and builders on stand 1115 at the
Totally Concrete Expo (//www.totallyconcrete.co.za/visiting/about-totally-concrete) from the 13th-14thMay.
Mondéco Crystal adds to the resin flooring specialist’s premier decorative flooring collection Mondéco (//www.flowcretesa.co.za/our-products/mond%C3%A9co/), which has been developed to provide attractive and bespoke floor finishes that can maintain an impressive visual impact despite extensive use.
Managing Director of Flowcrete South Africa, Craig Blitenthall, said: “Mondéco Crystal gives architects the creative flexibility to install floors in intricate and colourful configurations that are tailored to a site’s specific interior design desires.
“Adding glass particles into the system creates an elegant, glistening effect, ideal for fashioning a luxurious ambience that evokes a sophisticated
“Not only do they create a stylish surface, but these glass aggregates can also boost a construction project’s green credentials! As all of the glass used in a Mondéco Crystal floor, which amounts to 40% of the entire system, is recycled, it makes it a highly sustainable flooring option.”
Mondéco’s innovative application technique offers a myriad of artistic possibilities. Precision cut forms using brass or aluminium trims are laid on the surface of the floor in a matrix that designates each area of the
client’s design. The Mondéco material is then applied into the blocks in a paint-by-numbers style and ground to reveal a smooth, colourful and shining finished surface.
The aesthetic advantages of Mondéco Crystal has seen it installed in a long list of prestigious leisure developments around the world, including in one of Beijing’s latest landmarks, the Galaxy Soho shopping centre.
The world renowned architect Zaha Hadid chose Mondéco Crystal for the Galaxy Soho project, as its design flexibility and high quality finish was ideal for
creating fluid patterns of eye-catching colour across the floor that mirrored the building’s flowing architectural lines.
Flowcrete South Africa will also be unveiling a reformulated version of its Mondéco Earth (//www.flowcretesa.co.za/our-products/mond%C3%A9co/mond%C3%A9co-earth/) system. This solution integrates flint and granite aggregates into brightly coloured epoxy to create vibrant floors with an attractively patterned finish. The silver-ion based antimicrobial agent Polygiene® can be distributed throughout a Mondéco Earth floor, empowering it with the ability to eliminate up to 99.9% of bacteria.
The robust nature of Mondéco means that it will retain its visual appeal despite the challenging everyday conditions within large commercial facilities, which typically includes heavy foot traffic, food and drink spillages, hot water washes and impacts. Its durability also makes it cost effective, as the initial outlay can be divided into many years of reliable service.
Mondéco floors create a seamless surface, making it easy to clean and maintain.
This attribute lends itself to highly trafficked public environments, as dirt and contaminants can be quickly removed from an area, ensuring that the visual
impact of the floor remains at its most impressive.
