While at the Northeast Deco-Crete Conference we got to try out the new Proline reclaimed Timber table top mold. It is exceptional with the look of 200 year old barn wood and the durability of concrete. This mold is incredibly durable and reusable, the final product is very authentic and the mold comes directly from a true reclaimed timber table. Deco-Crete is based in Orrville Ohio and carry all the tools and materials needed to complete successful decorative concrete projects including stamps, molds, brushes, GFRC mixes, paints and stains, etc…
This project was made using the 3 Jet Downward Sprayer and reinforced by a layer of SpiderLath inlaid in the middle of the table. The SpiderLath helps to reduce the chance of shrinkage cracks and long-term cracking or breaking, it reinforces the entire table and gives it greater strength from edge to edge. The mix was evenly applied and allowed the the GFRC fibers in the mix to properly disperse throughout. Hand packing will often compact the fibers and prevent them from achieving adequate dispersion.
We shot the face coat with the Deco-Crete GFRC mix. It is the same as the backer mix but without the fiber.
Here is the mix formula:
2.5 pounds Duracast modifier
0.5 ounce Deco-Crete Superflow
6 pounds water
20 pounds Portland cement

He showed off the new single hole extrusion plate accessory available at MortarSprayer.com.

Interest has been growing for the new Concrete Countertop GFRC Sprayer and we’d like to share some videos we recently received from Lukeworks based in Baltimore MD. They’ve been busy completing an order for 30 GFRC concrete tables and have found the new sprayer incredibly helpful. Check out the two videos below.
