Project Overview:

During the refurbishment of the western foyers at the the Sydney Opera House, the need arose for a suitable coating for the application onto concrete columns. The brief for the coating was as follows;

A coating that matched the colour of the existing concrete that would provide a homodgenous appearance to the surface, evening out some of the more noticable blemishes of the concrete whilst maintaining the natural appearance of the concrete.


This was achieved by the application of 2 coats of Keim Concretal Lasur at 25 % strength.
