Flocrete is an acrylic cement deck coating that has been used on selected CH projects since around 2004. Scope has predominantly been limited to the zero beach entry above the grating and down to the flat play structure area.
Flocrete has stood up extremely well in the outdoor municipal environment in Texas and is now starting to be used elsewhere.
Flocrete has a significant texture to it. It is basically as hard as concrete, so it does not provide any level of fall protection if that is desired.
Flocrete costs between $5 and $6 per square foot.
The surface can be periodically cleaned using a pressure washer, a citric based liquid cleaner, and or with a solution of a nonabrasive liquid soap and tap water.
Flocrete should last 5 years without re-staining. Longevity will likely depend on the color selections (brighter colors will likely fade quicker) and care as well.
The Sherwin Williams H&C sealer is not warranted for submerged duty so the installing contractor will need to bear the burden of warranty repairs.
The Division 13 Cementitious Finish Specification includes a 3 year warranty on all cementitious finishes, including FloCrete.
