For the Art Institute of Houston, the contractor shotblasted and prepped the existing concrete before priming and pouring a 1/2-inch average depth of Ardex SDT-White portland-based cementitious topping. A decorative scored pattern spanned 1/4 feet wide and 1/4 inch deep. Three colors of Smith Stain water-based stain in gray, red, and black were used. Then the contractor cut and filled all control joints with EXBond custom tintable chalk and applied an AI Flooring Sealer LS UVR epoxy primer coat with AI Flooring polyurea topcoat.
