The Leaders in DIY Concrete Countertops Announce Their New Liqui-Crete System that Guarantees Easiest Way to Pour Beautiful Concrete Countertops

-For Immediate Release-
Clarks Summit, PA September 6, 2013 - Concrete Countertop Solutions Inc., the leader in Do-It-Yourself concrete countertop products and the creators of Z Counterforms, announced the debut of their Liqui-Crete System. This new system features a heavy duty fiberglass mesh reinforcing held in place with the Z Clip and a new highly flowable fiber fortified concrete add mixture called Z Liqui-Crete.
Z Liqui-Crete contains a proprietary blend of specially formulated additives that will transform a 60 lb. bag of standard concrete sand mix into a high strength flowable mix that easily flows through the 1"x1" fiberglass mesh grid. The mix is easily troweled smooth and will give you a high strength countertop quality product.
Scrim has always been a popular reinforcement in concrete countertops, but Concrete Countertop Solutions has upped the ante with their more durable alkali resistant FG50 fiberglass mesh. The tightly woven glass strands are combined to to form a continuous 1"x1" grid achieving much higher strength then conventional scrim.
The issue in that past with using fiberglass mesh as a reinforcement in cast-in-place tops was there isn't any way to keep the mesh at the appropriate height. That is were the patented Z Clip comes in. Simply screw it down to your cement board substrate and clip the mesh into place. The clip is designed to hold the mesh at the optimal height when using Z Counterforms. "In tests the mesh has stopped nearly all cracks in the concrete from telegraphing through the surface," explained Ed Baldoni owner of Concrete Countertop Solutions.
Along with their new system, Concrete Countertop Solutions is also releasing a Roman Ogee Edge profile to add to their existing six decorative edge profiles. Because of the large horizontal surface on the ogee profile, it has been difficult in the past to pour such a profile without trapping too much air in the form. Now, thanks to the flowability of the Liqui-Crete mix, this profile can finally be poured without issues.
"We have always strived to make concrete countertops as easy and fool proof as possible, and I feel we have finally developed a system that allows even the most amateur DIYers to achieve professional results."
