Continuous surfaces: which to choose and why
In the last decade, continuous surfaces have attracted the attention of many architects and Interior Designers for their great aesthetic impact, their practicality and their versatility.
With continuous surfaces, a new way of conceiving the furnishing of homes, offices and commercial premises emerges: these surfaces, in fact, without any joint, allow to achieve a final result capable of combining classic, modern, industrial and rustic creating contrasts of much loved trend in contemporary design.
Among the main advantages for the user who decides to use continuous surfaces as a type of coating we have: resistance to wear, minimum thickness, which makes it possible to renovate the premises avoiding radical and expensive interventions, and reduced maintenance.
There are different types of continuous surfaces with different peculiarities and when we think of continuous surfaces we tend to speak only of resins, but by far the most requested is the continuous surface with marble aggregates, also called “Venetian Terrace”.
Among the products with the best technical characteristics, Sib Extreme Style corresponds to the modern reinterpretation of a classic and prestigious material such as Venetian Terrace: it offers the same aesthetic effect but improves its technical characteristics: no joints, no cracks, infinite possibilities chromatic, low thickness (about 1 cm) and reduced application times.
Sib Extreme Style adapts perfectly to any style of furniture thanks to the infinite combinations of stones and aggregates that can be inserted into the mixture.
In addition to continuous surfaces, other realizations can also be performed with:
Cocciopesto: a material that is made with ground terracotta fragments mixed with natural lime. Used as a coating for walls, floors and decorative elements thanks to its durability and resistance, it is also quite successful also from an aesthetic point of view.
Microcement: it is an innovative material (it represents a valid alternative to resin) composed of cement, water-based resins, additives and mineral pigments. Born as a system to obtain continuous surface flooring for minimal environments, it has spread for its resistance to water (perfect for both indoors and outdoors), its anti-slip properties and high adhesion.
Resins: the most used are those based on epoxy or polyurethane. They can be applied directly pure or mixed with pigments, cement, minerals, talcs, etc. Extremely resistant to scratches and bumps, the resin can be worked in monochrome to obtain a sober and contemporary effect or in light two-colors for patinated and more scenographic effects.
Troweled concrete: a mineral base product of high purity cements. The ideal choice for obtaining continuous flooring with high resistance to atmospheric agents and water penetration.
Natural lime: the ideal choice for those wishing to renovate and renovate old floors or walls. The raw material is given by natural white lime but the various chromatic effects can be obtained by mixing it with natural vegetable and mineral products: it is resistant, durable, easy to clean and undoubtedly eco-friendly.
Do not forget that it is also possible to use Grit for a modern floor.
