Waxed concrete: when boutique rhymes with chic

Marius Aurenti waxed concrete is particularly popular in fashion boutiques and other interior design stores.

Its ease of installation and ability to cover old, sound floors means that site times are short and clean.

In trendy design boutiques, its contemporary look sets the tone, in line with the collections on display.

The qualities of concrete on floors and walls

On floors in high-traffic areas, waxed concrete develops a patina over time, but is not damaged. Its mechanical strength enables it to retain its smooth appearance and unique texture despite repeated and sometimes careless use.

MA’s protective waxes and varnishes reinforce this resistance and enhance the material’s long-lasting beauty. Marius Aurenti smooth fine waxed concrete is guaranteed for 15 years without cracking.

On walls, waxed concrete creates smooth, clean surfaces in perfect visual continuity with floors, for a perfectly harmonious finish.
