Concrete flooring designed to mimic Diato is an old way, that’s making a come-back, of laying a seamless flooring to resemble Mediterranean flooring. It’s made of polymerized clay, and EMC cement, blended in a template box screed (much like concrete floor screeds) and used for a wide range of applications. Applications include light weight decking, industrial flooring, faux tile, office flooring, and residential flooring. It’s especially valuable in hard-to-work areas like stairs and curving floor patters. 21st century applied science makes possible a return of artistic diato using natural “greener” faux alternatives for magnesite repair in California and other states where it was popular. Reztech Industrial Services out of Fresno, California is pleased to offer beginning in 2017 Composition flooring restoration adding MetaCrete™ to their existing line for industrial seamless floors. Lightweight, durable and able to meet a class A fire-rating naturally is MetaCrete™.
Diato, or magnesite flooring, was very popular in the 1930’s to 1950’s. One of the great benefits of magnesite floors is the fact that it is easy to work with and easy to sculpt and mold for use on stairs and around hard-to-tile areas.
Faux Diato New MetaCrete™ Mineral Clay Flooring Creating the right color to give the custom floor that you desire is another bonus. It is widely seen in homes of Mediterranean-, Spanish- and Art Deco-style homes. It can mimic many different flooring types by being etched or stamped in MetaCrete™ marble or tile designs. This is why it is sometimes difficult to ascertain what kind of flooring it is.
What is MetaCrete™? A mineral composite flooring composed of nano amorphous silica oxides along with other materials, and was first used to form many of the casing stones on the Pyramids of ancient Egypt. It easily mimics magnesite mostly seen in older Spanish style homes and in many cases, the homeowners are even unaware of what kind of flooring it is until they call in a flooring professional for repair or maintenance of the floor. Diato repair in California is very common, as many of the older homes have beautiful magnesite floors hidden under linoleum and carpet.
MetaCrete™ flooring differs from other types of flooring in many ways. One of the most obvious ways is the installation. MetaCrete™ is a poured flooring, much as concrete is poured, rather than being manufactured in strips, sheets, or tiles that need to be installed. It offers a seamless floor, which many people will find to be a great benefit. The pouring of the MetaCrete™ floor also makes it much easier to install on steps and other difficult areas. Lines or designs can be etched or stamped directly into the MetaCrete™ floor, which many times will make the floor appear to look like marble or tile flooring even though it is not. The colors range from a white base to reddish terra cotta color to greens and golds and the whole pallet of bright pastels, along with industrial safety colors. MetaCrete™ is also used as industrial flooring. Its durability and ease of maintenance makes it a wonderful choice for Spanish or Mediterranean style restaurants or other businesses. The water, chemical and fire resistant qualities, as well as unparalleled durability, make it a feasible choice for industrial, retail, and residential use. The ease of maintenance is also another great benefit to this seamless flooring.
Faux Diato, or magnesite flooring, is set to make a comeback using advanced science in a product trade named MetaCrete™. The durability and ease of maintenance of this wonderful flooring causes many homeowners to consider installing flooring in their own home or business. The downside has been that it would have to be installed by a not readily available professional installer. Beginning in 2017 problem solved as Reztech Industrial Services makes available their highly trained artisans. The durability of MetaCrete™ flooring will ensure that your investment is worthwhile, and the ease of care will help you to enjoy your flooring for years to come.
