Polymer concrete is an artificial concrete made with synthetic polymers instead of lime cement. It can be reinforced with fibreglass. Polymer concrete can be used for facade cladding, tiles and floor covering. Because of its non capillary properties it will not attract water or dirt. Luminous concrete has glass beads in the surface that has been treated with photoluminescent and fluorrescent materials. These photos show the variation with glassbeads which will glow up when exposed to blacklight. Without this light, the bright colours are hidden. In the dark, only the photoluminescent materials will glow.
