How do I apply waxed concrete to kitchen tiles?

Waxed concrete can beapplied to old tiles, both on the floor and on the wall, in kitchens wherewaterproofing constraints are decisive.

Laying concrete over tiles requires professional know-how. Preparing the substrate is crucial to the success of waxed concrete over old tiles.

The first step is to diagnose the substrate, whether slab or screed, and to determine thecondition and insulation of basements.

Preparation is then required to ensure adhesion to the tile, block out any rising damp and perfectly level the floor at joints and outcrops. This preparation usually requires a further two days. This type of project is often undertaken when demolishing partitions and remodeling rooms.

Waxed concrete can be finished in a number of different ways: using finishing strips, leaving it unfinished or inserting an aesthetic pattern.

Application is then made to the prepared substrate in accordance with site rules and conditions.

Waxed concrete jobs generally take a week to complete, to which must be added the time required for the varnishes to dry before the site can be put back into service.

The protection of waxed concrete over old tiles is generally achieved using
varnishes
. The reputation of Marius Aurenti concrete varnishes has been built up over the years through their use in the public domain for the construction and protection of engineering structures. In the materials section, you’ll find the different preparation and finishing products, as well as the different types of concrete.

On old tiles, we generally use
Classic waxed concrete
which offers the greatest versatility: application on floors and walls in living rooms, bathrooms and kitchens.
