A CYPRIOT ART FORM
cement colors of your preference
polybond glue (liquid adhesive)
You use 1 part white cement and 1 part marble powder
You put the amount of cement color(s) (powder) to meet your preference
Mix the water with polybond glue (1 part polybond : 5 parts water)
Then you mix the water mix with the powder mix.
* make sure your mix is not too watery
chopped fiberglass fibers for concrete (or plastic)
perlite for concrete constructions
Every 25 kg of cement we put 100 ml plasticiser which helps to mix the cement with less water.
Whatever the amount of the cement you use, you will use half the volume of water. In the water
you mix the plasticiser and the polybond (1 part polybond : 5 parts water). Then you add the fiberglass fibers. You put the mix in the concrete machine and allow it to blend. Then you add the cement and the perlite (1 part cement : 1 part perlite) and you allow the machine to blend it again for approx. 3 minutes. If it is too thick, we let the machine roll for another couple of minutes without adding water. If it is still to thick, then we add a little extra water.
