In a very short time, microcement has gone from being a completely unknown material to being used interchangeably as one of the most common coatings in our home and office. Its versatility allows it to adapt to all types of surfaces, be it floor, walls or furniture to name just a few applications.
What aesthetic possibilities does it offer?
The most normal thing is to find this material with smooth finishes, although its composition allows creating more textured effects. In addition, the combination of different types of color pigments gives us the possibility of creating almost infinite colors for our finish.
Its thickness is much less than that of smoothed cement. While microcement is only applied in a thin layer 2 to 3 millimeters thick, smoothed cement requires 5 to 7 centimeters of surface, which not only increases the structural weight of the resulting material, but also greatly reduces the decorative possibilities.
Is microcement a resistant material?
Its finish is completely waterproof, which means that it can also be applied without any problem in outdoor areas such as patios and terraces. It is also anti-slip, a characteristic characteristic of the floor and the walls of many bathrooms adapted for the elderly and disabled.
Its composition offers you a great adherence to almost all surfaces, whether it is concrete, cement, plastic or wood, which means that it is not necessary to remove the previous material before coating the microcement surface. You can put the micro-cement layer on top without fear of it peeling or peeling off over time.
It is a material too very resistant against mechanical force, compression, flexion and abrasion, and it is even stable against ultraviolet rays.
What type of maintenance does Microcemento® require?
Does not generate debris, so any work in which microcement is going to be used will be quick and clean, and its cleaning and maintenance is very easy. You only need neutral soap and water and occasionally apply a self-polishing wax diluted in water to keep its aesthetic properties intact year after year.
Finally, microcement is one of the best value for money options of the current market, and the fact that it is so clean and does not require removing the previous material in order to be applied greatly reduces the cost of the work.
