Nuvolato Architop®. The urban industrial look of concrete in 3mm.
Overcome the thickness, weight and programming limitations of traditional concrete with Ideal Work’s innovative Nuvolato Architop® system. Comprising a blend of cementitious powder and catalyst with a power trowelled finish, Nuvolato Architop® emulates the aesthetic of deep laid power floated concrete. The enhanced robustness of the Nuvolato Architop® system makes it a popular choice for restaurants, bars, shops and offices as well as residential environments where the style accommodates the industrial aesthetic.
Why choose Nuvolato Architop®
Ideal Work’s Nuvolato Architop® is a cementitious overlay system which, both in terms of aesthetic and performance, produces the effect of deep laid power floated concrete. Due to its similarities to power floated concrete and the significant advantages it offers with regard to programming and colour choice, Nuvolato Architop® is a popular addition to the portfolio of a high quality professional concrete installer. Nuvolato Architop® will not crack when installed over a suitable substrate, typically concrete, sand and cement screed, tiles and any other rigid, integral substrate possessing a minimum of 25N/mm2 of surface strength and minimum 1.5N/mm2 pull off strength. Assessment of the substrate is always an essential aspect of the Nuvolato Architop® specification, and our sales and technical teams are always on hand to advise you.
The Nuvolato Architop® system is applied manually but finished with a power trowel, producing the cloudiness and burnishing of a concrete floor. Due to this industrial application method and the substrate restrictions, it is installed exclusively on floors and steps. Unique special effects can be achieved using metal trims as well as acid staining.
Nuvolato Architop® will enhance the aesthetic of your project providing seamless floors with an authentic, urban industrial aesthetic.
