In a very short time, the microcement has gone from being a completely unknown material to being used indiscriminately as one of the most common coatings in our home and office. Its versatility allows it to adapt to any kind of surfaces, such as floor, walls or furniture, just to name a few applications.
What aesthetic possibilities does microconcrete offer?
It is usual to find this material with smooth finishes, although its composition allows to create more textured effects. In addition, the combination of different types of colour pigments gives us the possibility to create almost infinite colours for our finish.
Its thickness is much lower than that of smoothed cement. While the microconcrete is only applied in a thin layer of 2 to 3 millimetres thick, the smoothed cement requires 5 to 7 centimetres of surface area, which not only increases the structural weight of the resulting material, but also greatly reduces the decorative possibilities.
Is the microconcrete 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 non-slip, a feature of the floor and the walls of many bathrooms adapted for the elderly and disabled.
Its composition offers great adhesion to almost any kind of surfaces, such as concrete, plastic or wood, which means that it is not necessary to remove the previous material before coating the micro-cement surface. You can put on the microcement layer without fear, as it will not detach over time.
It is also a very resistant material against mechanical force, compression, bending and abrasion, and is even stable against ultraviolet rays.
What maintenance does microcement require?
It does not generate debris, so any work in which microcement will be used will be quick and clean, and its cleaning and maintenance is very easy. You only need water and neutral soap and occasionally apply a self-polishing wax diluted in water to keep its aesthetic properties intact year after year.
Finally, the micro cement is one of the best options for your budget in the current market, and the fact that it is so clean and does not require eliminating the previous material to be able to be applied reduces to a great extent the cost of the work.
