Laying waxed concrete over kitchen tiles

Waxed concrete can be applied to floor or wall tiles.

Marius Aurenti waxed concrete can be used to cover old tiles in a thickness of just 2 to 3 mm. This technical feat was perfected almost 20 years ago, making Marius Aurenti the world pioneer of millimetric waxed concrete.

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

We’ll need to diagnose the substrate, whether slab or screed, and determine the condition 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.

Preparing tiles for a waxed concrete application generally requires two extra working days. This type of application is often undertaken when demolishing partitions and remodeling rooms.

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.
