Non-monolithic Cement Concrete Flooring is a form of cement concrete floor in which the topping is not set monolithically with the base concrete. This type of cement concrete flooring is also known as bonded floor finish concrete.
Method of Construction:
The ground is first solidified.
A layer of clean m-sand minimum 10cm thick.
Base concrete is formed by laying 10cm thick Lime Concrete or Lean Cement Concrete with ratios (1: 4 : 8 ) and (1:8:16) likewise.
After three days, a 4cm thick topping with Cement Concrete (1:2:4) is laid.
The top 4cms layer is sometimes done in two layers of the same thickness. With top layer consisting of 1.5 cms Cement Concrete in (1:2:3), over a base layer having a thickness of 2.5 cms of Cement Concrete in a 1:3:6 ratio.
