Concrete Dry Shake Topping

For an extra level of resilience or colouring in your finished concrete floor, you may want to consider a Dry Shake topping concrete.

Dry shake topping concrete is used when a powder coating is applied to the surface concrete after its been poured and before it has completely dried. It reacts with the concrete mix to create an extra hard surface that can withstand greater impact and wear & tear than your typical concrete floor. Dry Shake Toppings can also offer other properties like colour and reflectivity. 


This is one of the most difficult installation procedures in concrete flooring. Timing and ensuring correct coverage are vital to give an even and consistent finish.  With our machines and the experience of our operators, CBS Concreting offer some of the best in the industry. Our expert installers deliver as near to perfection as possible as we know that an incorrect installation can be ugly and expensive to repair.
