Despite its lack of thickness, one of this material’s most significant properties is its high resistance and hardness; Microdeck and Microstone can even be used in areas of high traffic.
Microcement can be applied to almost any type of support: cement mortar, self-levelling, terrazzo, marble, tile, plasterboard-Pladur or plaster, on both vertical and horizontal surfaces in interior and exterior spaces. Never apply on natural wood or supports made of various sections which will distend differently. The support must be consolidated and stable. The surface must be dry and free of dust or grease. The planimetry of the support will determine the final result.
Yes, but before applying it, a heating protocol must be carried out in order to avoid the possibility that expansion, produced by the temperature changes in the floor, will crack the microcement itself.
Microcement in itself is not impermeable. The use of a sealer as a final coating, which will ensure a water-proof capability is absolutely essential. Therefor microcement may be applied to sinks, bathtubs or wet areas, but the surface must always be sealed with either Topsealer DSV (solvent-based polyurethane), or with Topsealer WT (water-based polyurethane) to ensure its impermeability.
Yes, depending on the type of microcement used and the texture achieved, any type of non-slip surface is obtainable.
Although the aesthetic finish may appear similar, it is not the same. With microcement one obtains greater advantages: Faster and easier application. No additional machinery or heavy tools required for its application. Less work. Less time. Lower Cost. Light and thus avoids structural load difficulties. For use in any room, not just on ground floors and basements. No joints involved, so no fissures appear following the drying process. Application possible on both vertical and horizontal surfaces.
An application of Microcement can be carried out over a period of between three to five days. To walk over the surface, one would normally have to wait a week.
No, it is not necessary. The microcement application creates an additional 1 to 3 mm of thickness over the surface. Usually the clearance with which the doors are placed is 5 mm from the ground, hence there is sufficient room and the doors require no planing.
To ensure the long and durable life of our microcements, we recommend the use of water and neutral soaps.
