                                            Benefits and Advantages
      delivered just-in-time on site as a redi-mix in concrete trucks by Lafarge with in-house/on-site DARO
    Quality Assurance
      LEED credits available under “Materials & Resources”: local/regional materials, recycled content and
    under “Indoor Environmental Quality: low emitting materials. The synthetic binder is a by-product of
    the cleaning process of smoke from brown coal plants, contains NO VOC’s and the installation in
    structures does not produce any off-gassing
       classified as a semi-lightweight material; approximately 16 - 18% lighter than conventional concrete
       with 3x the flexibility of concrete, DAROTopp™ provides the unique ability to be used on top of
    thermal or acoustic insulation (Type 1 and softer) without any reinforcement required, which ultimately
    provides the most economical and efficient method for leveling of depressions/uneven surfaces
       cost & time savings in renovations as existing floor coverings including vinyl flooring, ceramics,
    carpet or terrazzo do not need to be removed. No surface preparation (scarifying etc) is required, as a
    separation layer (polyethylene sheet) and edging strips around all perimeter walls/structures ensure
    topping is completely separated from base slab to prevent any cracks or control joints from transferring
    through topping while at the same time prevents any sound transfer between walls and floors
       as 96% of the water in the final mixture is used to crystallize binder, there is NO shrinking and NO
    curling, allowing large area pours up to 10,000 sq.ft. with absolutely NO control joints or saw cuts. This
    flexibility allows DARO to provide multi-year guarantees against any cracking

      being synthetic, DAROTopp™ is not affected by moisture issues typical to organic gypsum based
    toppings, and if topping becomes wet, it simply dries with no adverse effects, allowing for use in
    washroom/kitchen areas. There is also NO chance for the growth of mould.

       DAROTopp™ is available in numerous colors, integrally added into concrete trucks to provide a
    consistent look of fines/aggregates. With a clear coat of polyurethane or epoxy then applied, an
    aesthetically pleasing “natural exposed” look is created on a sustainable crack-free, joint-free surface
