The Lucem Star ® Terrazzo system is a mineral concrete coating developed by Ad Lucem made of its microcement with various aggregates which are not exceeding 6 mm. Thanks to its fine aggregates, the Lucem Star ® offers a very cost effective alternative to the Lucem Stone.
It also offers an aesthetical alternative, in between the regular microcement Lucem Choc and the Lucem stone with fine exposed aggregates
The advantages of using the LUCEM Star ® System :
The properties of the micro-terrazzo Lucem Star ® are similar to the ones of the Lucem Stone ® in terms of adhesion and hardness but thiner.
Thanks to an extended working time, it allows a very good workability.Then, when it starts to set, the very quick increase of hardness and adhesion allows the grinding of the surface 72 hours after the application of the material.
The adhesion properties and the low thickness makes it possible to avoid splitting joints or expansion gaps for a totally seamless finish ! Only the junctions already present on the substrate will have to be brought back to the surface.
The system comes in standard pre-coloured bags with premixed aggregates. The preparation only consists in mixing the resin provided with the material which is then already coloured and already dosed for you.
Surface protection :
The surface protection is ensured by the stages during when the grouting and densifier are applied, allowing the surface to be perfectly closed. A specially designed water and oil repellent completes the protection against stains.
Creativity under control :
Its industrial production allows the perfect control of the composition of the aggregates and the colours of the mortar bases. The reliability for both colours and calibration of the aggregates gives you consistent results on construction sites.
Unmatched sustainability :
Because it is made of multiple hard aggregates, the micro-terrazzo can easily be restored even many years after its installation. The grinding, sanding and grouting operations allows spectacular renovations.Terrazzo is one of the most ancient types of floors originally made during the antique Greece era. At the time lime was used instead of cement but like the old terrazzo floors of Venice, once renovated they will look like new again.
