Black-coated cement floor paint is becoming a staple for cement workers in the United States, with many workers calling it “just the best” choice.
Cement workers at construction sites are now using the paint to protect their floors against the weather, say the National Association of Concrete Finishers (NACFP), a trade group.
“They’re saving money and it’s also a more eco-friendly option for the cement workers,” said John Coughlin, president of the NACFP, in a phone interview.
“The paint lasts for decades and it really reduces the amount of waste in the ground.”
Coughlin says it costs about $1.5 million to coat a cement floor, and it is used on more than 30 million construction sites in the U.S.
Cements and concrete have become increasingly expensive in recent years, due to a combination of poor economy and a surge in demand.
The United States has been hit hard by record heat and record rainfall, and the U.”s population is growing.”
The NACDFP estimates that nearly half of all cement manufacturing jobs are in the country, but more than half of the country’s jobs are concentrated in the Northeast, Midwest, and South. “
It is the reason for the growth of cement production.”

“There’s a lot of demand for cement in those areas,” Croughlins said, adding that demand is also increasing among the young and middle class.
The NACEP estimates cement manufacturing employs around 2.5 percent of the U’s workforce, and Coughliners comments on the trend reflect the importance of the industry to the economy.
“The demand for concrete has been very strong and the demand for black cement is definitely increasing,” he said.
The U.s. is the world’s largest importer of cement, and a growing number of countries are starting to export their products.
“When you look at cement demand in the world, Mexico is the number one importer, and China is number two,” Caughlins said of the two countries.
Coughlins and his fellow NACDP members believe black cement will be a “game changer” for cement production in the future.
He said cement has a “softness” to it that is hard to replicate on a regular basis, and he expects it to be a key ingredient in the manufacturing of the next generation of concrete floors.
“I think it will help in the long term to make concrete a really high-quality product,” Couchlin said.
