Counter Resurfacing Kit
This kit includes one Deco-Poz kit, one gallon of SoyCrete (we'll contact you for your stain and cement mix choice), one gallon of Eco-Tuff Clear Coat (submersible/aqua formula), and one 12" magic trowel.
Over time, many counter surfaces are prone to stains, scratches, dents, and other damage. With this kit or your selections from the related items below, you can transform your existing countertops for a whole new look. You can do-it-yourself and resurface your counters over a weekend. And, the materials cost less than $300.
The steps for this project are summarized below. You can also visit DwellSmart's YouTube Channel to watch a video series showing each step of the project. To get started, you can either order this combination kit, or pick from the four items shown below. If you order the combination kit, we'll e-mail you after you place your order to get your color selection for the SoyCrete stain. You can also mix different stain colors together or use combinations of colors to create further depth and interest. And, don't be shy about calling us with any questions you might have.The 5 steps are:
- Prepare your surface - clean and sand your existing counters. If you have sharp edges (e.g. right angles), you might want to add cove molding or putty to soften sharp angles.
- Prime the surface by painting a thin layer of the Deco-Poz liquid polymer over your existing counter.
- Mix the Deco-Poz and trowel it on. Add additional coats as desired. A minimum of two coats is recommended. Let the Deco-Poz dry between coats.
- Stain the Deco-Poz using SoyCrete. One coat is sufficient, but you can add additional coats of stain to deepen the color.
- Seal using the Eco-Tuff Clear Coat. Apply thin layers and build up as desired. Let each coat dry between applications.
The Deco-Poz System is clearly the sustainable alternative to traditional resurfacing systems. It utilizes a recycled pozzolan material that reduces up to 25% portland cement content, while increasing compressive strength and durability. The aggressive bonding capability and workable cementitious material makes Deco-Poz a highly desirable design tool that creates more opportunities to re-use existing building materials.
Deco-Poz Decorative Concrete Pozzolan Resurfacing System is a high-performance cementitious eco-blend using a custom-engineered 100% post-industrial recycled white pozzolanic mineral additive that is combined with a proprietary non-hazardous polymer. This unique eco-friendly resurfacing system bonds to virtually any substrate delivering a durable new cementitious surface that is suitable for both interior or exterior decorative finishes. The aggressive bonding over existing substrates and difficult adhesives saves hours or even days of demolition, stripping, etching, or grinding and completely takes the guesswork out of evaluating proper porosity or color results.
Deco-Poz Cement Mix is available in a white mix for an optimum color neutral substrate that enables more true and brilliant colors. The unlimited and flexible uses provides more ways to add beautiful decorative design elements to your project.
The Deco-Poz surface is formulated for the SoyCrete Architectural Concrete Stain and is compatible with other concrete stains and coating systems that require a durable, porous cementitious substrate.
Benefits and Certifications
Unlike silica fume, coal fly ash, furnace slag and other by-products, the pozzolans are free of iron, manganese, and other undesirable color-inducing impurities making Deco-Poz the preferred decorative resurfacer.
