SunCanvas Overview

The SunCanvas product is an incredibly thin, polymer modified cement overlay veneer. Its application provides a clean, smooth cement surface that is able to be stained and decorated, the same as pouring a new, fresh and clean concrete slab.  The SunCanvas application can also be used in combination with stencils, integral coloration, decorative score lines, stains and dyes to allow for complete control over the look and design of the concrete.  As well, with proper surface preparation, SunCanvas bonds tenaciously to a variety of previously installed floor coverings, including marble, ceramic tile, concrete, terrazzo, and more.

Features and benefits: The choice of a SunCanvas system will give you a floor that is smooth, seamless, and easy to clean and maintain. It is not only functional, but also very healthy.  This is due to the fact that the SunCanvas smooth surface reduces dust, dirt and allergens that would normally get trapped in other flooring systems like carpet, tile grout and wood floor seams.  Easy maintenance makes the SunCanvas system a popular choice.  Cleaning and maintenance usually consist only of dust mopping or sweeping, and occasionally damp floor mopping.  Many commercial and retail spaces are making it their floor of choice due to the overall low cost of ownership of a stained concrete floor.

Once the material has dried, the artisan installer uses stains, dyes, acrylic colors, cut patterns and more to provide a finished look.

There isn’t an easier way to rejuvenate an old, tired concrete slab and make it look great for only a fraction of the cost of complete removal and re-pouring.

Where to use it: SunCanvas is perfect for:

  • Restaurants, Bars and Nightclubs
  • Retail Stores
  • Showrooms
  • Art Galleries and Museums
  • Theme Parks
  • Basements
  • Interior Floors
  • Exterior surfaces
  • Entryways
  • Residential Floors
  • Commercial Spaces

How it’s done:  SunCanvas is a very thin, cement-based polymer modified coating system. In fact, it is less than 1/8th of an inch. It is ideal to use to resurface old concrete floors and provide a new canvas to be decorated.  When an old concrete slab becomes chipped, stained, coated or just looks terrible, SunCanvas can be used to provide a new surface that can be decorated using cut patterns, stencils, and stains and dyes.  After application, SunCanvas should always be sealed with a high quality Sundek clear sealer. This ensures long lasting finishes that are easy to clean and maintain.
