Flowcrete launches game-changing new Flowcrete Mondeco formulation
Flowcrete has transformed its Mondeco seamless terrazzo flooring, developing a high-performance formulation to give architects and specifiers long-lasting beauty underfoot.
Used the world over for floors that combine quality, beauty and performance, the new collection incorporates elements of the most specified designs in Flowcrete Mondeco’s 40 year history.
The new formulation offers superior UV stability, the option of larger aggregates for extra visual impact, and a choice of 12mm and 9mm options, as well as a more economical 6-7mm version.
With a focus on exclusivity and easy specification, the new range is centred around eight collections, which together offer 32 design options, using a variety of aggregates encapsulated in a choice of four RAL coloured resins.
In-keeping with the classic origins of terrazzo, the eight collections are inspired by Italian names that reflect the unique individual qualities of each aggregate and resin mix. These include Moderno, (modern look) featuring a new, contemporary style based on a darker aggregate, Scintilla (mirror) which features mirrored glass, and Solare (radiant) a stunning design featuring on-trend yellow and orange stones.
The new UV stability formulation also enables a stunning finish to be achieved with the whiter designs in the existing range, Mondeco Arctic, which sees a new design addition, with a much whiter marble, named ‘Snow’, completing a choice of three white shades in the collection.
Developed to stylishly stand the test of time, Flowcrete Mondeco offers exceptional strength and impact resistance, combined with low maintenance requirements. It also brings solid sustainability credentials, primarily due to the longevity of the finish, which can last the lifetime of a building.
It also has a low VOC formulation and depending on the design, up to 60 per cent of Flowcrete Mondeco’s composition can also be drawn from recycled clear, coloured mirror glass chippings.
Michelle Mendes, Flowcrete Market Manager, said: “With a rich variety of colourful and decorative aggregates, seamless terrazzo is the ideal choice to transform a simple entryway or corridor into a space of power and elegance.
“Mondeco can be installed in a variety of complicated patterns and precision cut forms using brass or aluminium trims, which are laid on the surface of the floor in a matrix that designates each area of the design.
“It is so adaptable, it can be pre-cast in different moulds and shapes to create stair treads and risers, allowing for a seamless transition between the floor and wall.”
“We’ve set out to launch an enhanced seamless terrazzo flooring offer, which has been simplified in terms of the specification experience and delivers new advances in creativity and performance.
“The launch represents years of research and development, to make this stunning floor finish better than ever. It’s also much easier to install, making sure the contractor can keep to tight deadlines and work better with other trades on site.”
The new Flowcrete Mondeco range is the ideal choice for a wide variety of locations with very high footfall, from shopping centres to stadiums, in fact anywhere that needs a high performance, attractive finish with reinforced UV resistance and colour stability over time.
It joins other systems in the Mondeco portfolio, completing a total of 12 collections to choose from, including a fast-curing version, Mondeco Rapide, and an electrostatic terrazzo option, Mondeco ESD TZ. It also offers a version with silver ion-based anti-microbial technology for the ultimate in hygiene performance, which is popular in operating theatres and pharma.
