Task at Hand

The American University of Beirut (AUB) was established in 1866 and is a private, non-sectarian, and independent university chartered in New York with its campus in Beirut, Lebanon. AUB campus is made up of 64 buildings, including the AUB Medical Center, four libraries, three museums, and seven dorms. AUB has an operating budget of $423 million and an endowment of approximately $768 million. The campus at AUB was in need of renovation and refurbishment of its existing walkways and floors, and this client requested a stamped overlay system offering all the aesthetic benefits of conventional stamped concrete that is applied over the existing material.


Stamped concrete overlay is the perfect balance between price and aesthetic in terms of decorative concrete. Advances in this system make it preferable to other options such as chemical staining, interlocking tiles and polished concrete. Stamped concrete also allows for duplication of the beauty and texture of natural stone or brick. PROJECT REQUIREMENT DCP SOLUTION DCP provided a special stamped concrete overlay system comprising five main components; Cempatch SBR 100 Liquid polymer additive, PP Fiber monofilament polypropylene fibers added to the concrete mix, Monotop a dry shake hardener to be spread over the concrete surface, Monorelease a powder release agent to facilitate matts’ release from the concrete, and Monoseal a sealer coat.
