With Toptint Exposed, Lafarge Tarmac were able to offer a concrete that was suitable for purpose, aesthetically pleasing and in addition, as the original specification would have been extremely expensive to produce (due to lack of materials that could be locally sourced), Lafarge Tarmac were able to further value engineer the project by offering a cost saving to the customer with Toptint Exposed using locally sourced aggregate which helped to reach project sustainability targets as well.
The ultimate creative concrete
Lafarge Tarmac offer a wide choice of specialist colours. However, if your project requires a specific colour that you cannot find, our team will work with you to ensure we match it, depending on size of the application.
Architects, designers and engineers around the world are constantly looking for fresh materials that will enable them to create structures in new and different ways. The beauty of concrete is that as well as being extremely strong and durable, it is also highly versatile. There’s no better example of this than Toptint, the ultimate range of creative concretes
Choice of finishes
Toptint is available in an array of colours, patterns and textures helping you achieve everything from the natural look to highly polished aesthetics and prints simulating the look of brick, wood and stone.
Wide range of colours
Toptint Colour contains an integral colour pigment which is UV stable meaning that the colour will not degrade from natural sunlight. Also because we use a liquid pigment, the colour is evenly mixed throughout the concrete.
As we design your mix to suit the application we can ensure that the right solution is used. Depending on the application Toptint can prove to be an easier and quicker to lay product.
Easy to lay
Toptint concrete is as simple to lay as conventional concrete.
As Toptint colour is integral to the mix it is a long lasting and frost-resistant solution, requiring little on-going maintenance making it a more sustainable long term solution.
