Beadcrete in Oz

Postby Nawty » Sat Dec 29, 2007 7:21 pm

Anybody in Oz able to find out how much this beadcrete stuff is.

If possible, size of container and coverage area per container and cost of course.

Thanks.

Beadcrete is expensive and starts at around 1,500 baht per m2. It's very nice. It's tricky to apply. Your pool consultant has all the info on this stuff and some samples.
It is beginning to catch the attention of architects and pool owners
alike. They've done 10 pools in 2007 (1,800m2), in Bangkok, Pattaya, Samui and Phuket, and this year theyre hoping to get some prestigious resort pools to boost the product image.
Unfortunately, in line with most construction materials, their supplier has
raised prices 10 per cent.
The product is quite unique, and if you see one of the pools on a nice sunny day, you will love it, and the higher price will become much less of an obstacle. When you're talking about domestic pool of 100m2, or more with luxury tiles, an extra 50K - 100K Baht for a sparkling pool which is non slip and doesn't need re-grouting every few years, it's not such a big decision.

What I am wanting to know is how much is it in Oz to buy and do yourself for example. Does not look like a complicated procedure to apply and wondering what the material cost is in Oz to buy...not here.

Google came up with these:
http://www.beadcrete.com/
http://www.designerconcrete.com.au/pool/pool_beadcrete.asp

Probably the second one is your best bet. Try contacting them by email.

Any pool construction contractor sources in Thailand, Pattaya area, that are certified in the use of beadcrete or have some experience and can do it without messing things up?
