Concrete Flooring: Overlays / Micro-toppings


Pentimento is a Portland cement based overlay when mixed with Cp1000 acrylic polymer produces a unique high strength cementitious floor covering. It is designed to resurface existing concrete and restore it back to original condition. It is applied at 1/8” thickness and usually re-trowelled and burnished two or three times to take on the appearance of newly steel trowelled polished concrete. Pentimento is designed for resurfacing high traffic commercial interior floors, as well as residential concrete surfaces.


  • Only re-trowellabe cementitious overlay available in the market
  • Creates a real concrete look and feel (does not look plastic!)
  • Applied at only 1/8” thick – adds very little weight to the structure
  • Can be integrally colored with Colorfast
  • Achieves excellent results with chemicals stains (acid stains), dyes or water based stains
  • Superior compressive strength, 5200psi
Compressive Strength 5200psi
