Our in-house developed high-performance concrete dade-roc lines up with the list of modern UHPC concretes. (Ultra high-performance – fibre glass reinforced – concrete)
For our dade-roc, we use 6/8mm gravel from the Altstätten area and sand from the Rhine delta. Together with high-performance cement, some chemical additives and fibre glass, a concrete with a perfect surface and material characteristics is created which exceeds traditional concrete by a factor of 3-4.

Our production has been CO2 neutral since 2016. (More information)
The dade-roc basic mixture can be coloured by adding pigments. If no grain is added, the concrete can be used to produce very thin material thicknesses from 8 mm upwards. (See our dade FRONT). For terrazzo surfaces, we use different chips according to your specifications, e.g. Guber chips or Valser stone.
Concrete surfaces & maintenance
Concrete is a natural material and subject to corresponding variations. Therefore, colours cannot be produced using an RAL table. (More info on the characteristics of concrete). We thus restrict our standard colours to natural grey, anthracite, beige (based on white cement) and pink. We are happy to provide samples for individual colour requests.
We cast our concrete in moulds – this is how we can work with various formworks and achieve interesting surfaces. The smooth version – in particular for concrete kitchens – is our standard. Other common frame types are:
– Board formwork
– OSB formwork
– Herringbone look
Wax & diamond – new surfaces:
In addition to various framework materials, we can also set accents in the surface finish. In addition to the finish with dade coating or impregnation we also offer diamond terrazzo (see below) and wax look. For the latter, the surfaces are waterproofed, polished and then waxed.
In modern buildings, the trend is currently pointing at terrazzo surfaces. With this process, the cement surface is polished in 6-7 work processes to make the particles visible. As a result of the polishing process, the surface is closed/sealed at the same time and does not require any other surface treatment.
