Abstract (en)

[origin: FR2824087A1] The method comprises delimiting the surface of the ground (5) to be covered and moistening it. The surface is then covered with a uniform layer (C) of a mixture of cement, sand, latex and water. A transparent plastic film (3) is then applied on top of the layer so that it prevents the escape to atmosphere of gas bubbles resulting from the chemical reaction of the mixture constituents. The film is removed from the layer before the mixture has finished setting. An Independent claim is included for a matrix for implementing the method.

Abstract (fr)

L'invention concerne un procédé de réalisation d'un revêtement de sol ayant l'aspect d'un dallage vieilli. Ce procédé comprend au moins les étapes suivantes qui consistent à : a) délimiter la surface du sol (5) à recouvrir et humidifier celle-ci, ou inversement ; b) recouvrir ladite surface d'une couche (C) uniforme d'un mélange de ciment, de sable, de latex et d'eau ; c) appliquer sur le dessus de la couche ainsi déposée, un film (3) de matière plastique, de préférence translucide ou transparent, de manière à ce qu'il empêche l'échappement à l'air libre des bulles de gaz résultant de la réaction chimique des constituants du mélange ; d) enlever le film (3) de ladite couche, avant que ledit mélange ait fini sa prise. <IMAGE>
