Exposed Aggregate Concrete
The concrete paste on the surface of the concrete is washed off before the concrete is fully set to “expose” the coarse aggregate on the surface.
Decorative aggregates, such as Basalt, Marangaroo Quartz, Rhyloite and round river gravel can be used either straight or in combination to achieve the desired effect.
Coloured oxide can be added to the mix to pigment the concrete paste to create different effects.
Some exposed aggregate concretes, particularly those using crushed rock, are used to improve slip resistance, particularly in driveways and paths.
