Handling precautions

Health and safety standards must always be respected.

Wear protective gloves to avoid staining basins.

Remove dust from basins before installation.

Avoid prolonged or permanent contact with aggressive chemicals such as acids, alkalis, vinegar, solvents, bleach, hydroalcoholic gel…

Handcrafted, our basins are unique products.

The care taken in their manufacture does not prevent variations in appearance and color.

The basins feature surface protection. Despite the high performance and qualifications of this protection, it is not immune to long and repeated exposure, which can damage them.

Waxed concrete for worktops, washbasins and sinks

What is waxed concrete?

Waxed concrete is actually a mixture of cement, sand and pigment, which is then protected with a coat of
varnish
or
wax
.

This protection makes the material waterproof, water-repellent and oil-repellent (i.e. resistant to both water and oil).

The pigment is used to color the material in the mass. As it is more expensive, it is generally only used for top coats.

Several finishes are available: matte, gloss or satin.

Waxed concrete in the kitchen and bathroom

Mineral and therefore natural, warm and authentic, waxed concrete is ideal for wet rooms such as kitchens and bathrooms.

In fact, it helps to harmonize the soils, the walls and elements furniture, such as
work plans
the sinks washbasins washbasins, ensuring total visual continuity; you may also prefer to play with contrasts, and create them in different shades of waxed concrete, or by combining waxed concrete with other materials such as wood, marble, ceramic or metal (stainless steel, brass…).

FAQ

To make a sink, washbasin or basin in cement or waxed concrete, you obviously need to choose the right material.

Cement or concrete must be particularly resistant to its own weight, to impact, to moisture and to greasy stains caused by cosmetics.

This is why Marius Aurenti recommends using high-performance fiber-reinforced concrete – a mortar into which fibers have been added to increase the strength of a block – and covering it with a varnish.

You don’t like your old sink, your antique washbasin, or even your kitchen countertop? Cover it with waxed concrete!

Here’s how to do it:

  • Thoroughly clean surfaces to be coated – wood, concrete, stone, tiles, ceramics – with a degreasing product; allow to dry.
  • Apply a coat of epoxy primer to tiled or ceramic parts
  • Prepare your concrete mix
  • Apply a thin layer of concrete to the surfaces to be covered
  • Allow to dry completely or partially
  • Apply a second coat
  • Rub with a sponge to smooth the surface
  • Apply a protective varnish

Protected by a varnish or wax, the concrete of a basin, washbasin, sink or kitchen or bathroom worktop requires a little care andmaintenance.

For daily maintenance, surfaces can be cleaned with soapy water.

Avoid using any detergent, acid, basic or corrosive product that could damage the varnish or wax coating, as well as abrasive instruments such as hard brushes.

Marius Aurenti offers a range of special waxed concrete maintenance products with anti-bacterial and anti-scaling properties.
