HOW TO APPLY MICROCEMENT? BASIC STEPS

The microcement application process requires specialized labor and following a series of steps that will be influenced by the conditions and characteristics of the substrate to be coated. We explain how to do it.

1 Prepare the surface

It is vital to prepare the floors or walls to be coated. For this, it is necessary to clean the support, free it from dust and grease and repair any imperfections that may have. The more uniform the surface is, the better the microcement will adhere and the appearance of possible cracks will be avoided.

2 Apply the adherence promoter on the floor or wall

Once the surface is prepared, you have to proceed to apply the primer to help the microcement adhere faster and easier to the existing material. Depending on the type of surface and the conditions of the space, one type of primer or another will be applied.

3 Apply base or preparation microcement

The next step is to apply the layers of preparation microcement on the surface. The specific number of layers will be determined by the system used by each professional. These will serve as a base for the finishing layer that is applied later. To achieve excellent finishes, each of them must have their corresponding drying and sanding time.

4 Apply finishing microcement

Once the previous layers have been allowed to dry, it is necessary to apply the layers of the finishing microcement. Again, depending on the system used by the professional, a determined number of layers will be applied. The finishes that can be seen in the result of the remodel are determined by these layers as they are the most visible of the entire process.

5 Protect the floor or wall coated with microcement

To achieve impeccable and much more durable finishes, it is necessary to apply a varnish that seals the coating and protects it from wear by abrasion, impacts, environmental humidity, etc.

MICROCEMENT FINISHES AND TEXTURES

The textures of the microcement and the application of the sealing varnishes determine the style of the finishes. Depending on the style you want to achieve or the surface where the microcement will be applied, we find different types of textures.

Bathroom with outside view and microcement floor

The walls are associated with a fine grain to achieve silky and soft finishes that enhance the aesthetic value of the coating. The medium texture is associated with interior floors, which it endows with a higher resistance. The coarse grain provides a greater roughness and is perfect for applying on exterior pavements achieving a rustic style.

The porosity of the microcement requires the application of a sealing varnish in the last layer to protect and waterproof the coating. The sealers can have three types of finishes:

  • Gloss: it is the finish that enhances the color of the microcement and gives strength to the end of the coating.
  • Matte: ideal for achieving a finish with a natural aspect and does not reflect light. It withstands wear and dirt well.
  • Satin: is the finish that is halfway between shiny and matte. It is used to enhance finishes with a soft shine.
  • Supermatte: offers a simple look with less brilliance than the matte finish.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT MICROCEMENT

PRODUCT

The absence of joints makes microcement an ideal material to create avant-garde environments with an unparalleled sensation of spaciousness. The creation of continuous spaces is combined with its great adhesion on any type of surface. This functionality makes it perfect for renovations, as it can also be applied over the existing material without the need to remove it. Cladding floors and walls without debris is a reality.

It is the perfect coating to achieve finishes similar to smooth cement, but with nuances similar to some marbles.

Microcement has anti-slip properties depending on the roughness given to the surface or the application of a final varnish layer. The rougher the final texture of the surface, the safer it will be.

Microcement is a material very resistant to ambient moisture and direct contact with water, it positions as the ideal material to apply in bathrooms and kitchens. Depending on the composition of the microcement used by the professional, it can be more or less waterproof.

To increase this impermeability, we recommend sealing the coating in the final layer of the application process with the use of varnishes that you can find in our product catalog.

Microcement has high chemical and mechanical resistance, which translates into a material resistant to impacts. It supports temperature changes, abrasion, and sun rays. Additionally, it is totally fire-proof which means it offers high fire resistance.

The durability of the MyRevest microcement is high. With the help of simple maintenance, we guarantee that it is able to withstand the passage of time with hardly any deterioration. To keep it as new and extend its durability, we recommend the use of protective waxes.

In our product catalog, you can find the maintenance waxes MyWax and MyWax Plus, the first is made for domestic use and the second for professional use.

Yes, you can create the color combination you want to achieve a unique and personalized finish.

When making a quote for a renovation with microcement, professionals take into account a series of factors. To determine the final price of this coating, it is important to take into account factors such as the type of microcement to be used, the surfaces where it will be applied, and the displacement of professionals.

Approximately, the price of microcement ranges between 70 and 110 euros per square meter. If you want to receive more information or advice from our professionals, contact us without obligation.

Some of the problems that surfaces coated with microcement can present are scratches, cracks, and even the absence of waterproofing. If a good quality microcement system is used, the application process is done by expert hands, and a sealer is used in the final layers, these problems should not appear.

The MyRevest microcement systems do not have these drawbacks, they are endowed with unmatched quality. In our catalog, you can find products to protect the supports covered with this material and keep them as good as new.

What is erroneously called polished microcement is actually polished cement. Two concepts that are confused and that have nothing to do, although it may seem so at first sight. Polished cement or polished concrete, also known as this, is really a decorative finish. A material whose field of application is limited to floors and, moreover, is neither a good thermal nor acoustic insulator. Its name refers to a rotating polisher that is used to achieve that characteristic shiny finish. Other drawbacks are that it requires mesh and expansion joints, it can lose shine over time and cracks may appear.

Liquid porcelain is a material also in high demand due to its many virtues and finishes. Which one is better? You might be asking. Well, the answer is that it depends on the finish the client is looking for, the surface to be renovated, and the time available to carry out the work.

For example, liquid porcelain can only be applied to floors due to its viscosity. This is not the case with microcement, whose field of application also extends to walls, ceilings, and furniture. These circumstances are also evident when it comes to the finish. While the former can incorporate 3D elements and visual effects that increase its price, microcement provides a uniform finish.

The step-by-step process also differs. Liquid porcelain is only suitable for interiors, microcement can be used outdoors. Similarly, porcelain requires a self-leveling application and, combined with the factors previously described, its price is much higher than microcement's.

APPLICATION

It's a perfect coating to achieve an elegant surface. The absence of joints translates into a greater sense of space and continuity. It's an ideal material to achieve an aesthetic result and adaptable to different rooms and styles.

As a general rule, microcement cannot be applied on damp surfaces, as it may harm the adherence of the coating and its finish. But, in some cases, the source of the dampness can be repaired or the surface treated with epoxy resin, which blocks the moisture or water vapor that comes from the base.

The microcement can be applied over radiant flooring, but beforehand it is necessary to carry out the ignition protocol to prevent cracks caused by temperature changes.

Microcement is a coating that does not crack on its own due to its elasticity. The key is that, before its application, the support is healthy. It is necessary to check that there are no detached parts, poorly maintained paints or badly placed tiles.

Having the bases in good condition is essential to prevent the appearance of future cracks and fissures on the surface where the microcement is applied.

Parquet and wood are materials made up of movable plates. Plates that can suffer expansions and movements that cause cracks in the new microcement pavement. Therefore, we advise against applying microcement on a parquet floor directly. The ideal would be to remove the wooden floor.

Yes, microcement can be applied if the surface is healthy, level and free of grease. In this case, it is not necessary to remove the existing surface and the whole application process can be carried out without any problem.

For outdoor floors, it is necessary to apply a microcement with maximum resistance to abrasion and temperature changes. MyRock offers a natural and stony finish for a non-slip floor.

The professionals' recommendation, which includes us, is very clear in this regard. It is advisable to use a mesh when applying microcement, especially in the case of floors and walls covered with tiles. But this does not mean that it is 100% mandatory in all works, we have to stress some nuances. There are types of microcement for which it is not necessary to use mesh, such as our ready-to-use micro-cement MyReady Go! That's why always, always, ask a trusted professional.

Before applying microcement, it is necessary to ensure that the surface is level, moisture-free, completely rehabilitated and clean. Once the surface is cleaned, a priming layer should be applied to consolidate the surface, followed by a mesh layer for additional strength to the coating.

Microcement can be applied to any surface, except live wood. In the case of tiles, the surface needs to be leveled and the joints covered first. This material adheres seamlessly to the existing surface and former joints will not be noticeable.

It is most advisable to apply microcement at the end of the construction and by professionals specialized in the use of this material. It is a decorative coating that requires the hands of experts for high-quality finishes.

Gypsum or drywall surfaces are the most recommended to apply microcement on, as these are absorptive surfaces. Before beginning with the coating, it is necessary to ensure that the plaster or drywall has set.

The average time for a microcement application is from 4 to 5 days.

Microcement is a porous material, but for greater security a final layer of varnish is applied, making it completely waterproof. This makes it a perfect coating to apply in the bathroom, sink, shower tray or bathtub. The sensation of unity and resistance to pressure are guaranteed.

It is important and necessary to seal the microcement, as it gives it greater hardness and facilitates the maintenance of the coating. The polyurethane protective layer prevents the appearance of stains and gives it a final touch that enhances the design. A matte, satin or glossy finish can be achieved, depending on the desired finish. The varnishes are also responsible for the non-slip and waterproof finish that is so valued in microcement finishes.

Microcement is a material that adapts to any surface and stairs are no exception. The most important thing is to ensure that the base is consolidated and stable. Attention should also be paid to the corners of the steps, where we recommend installing a hidden aluminum profile in the base mortar to prevent wear problems.

The virtues of microcement allow it to be a very versatile coating that can be applied indiscriminately indoors and outdoors. In fact, the use of microcement in outdoor spaces such as terraces, facades or swimming pools is proliferating lately due to its exceptional performance. It stands up to UV light and rain, as well as to wear from abrasion and high traffic. You just need to know how to choose the most suitable type of microcement for this application field.

MAINTENANCE

To clean the microcement, all you need is water and PH neutral soap, aggressive products should never be used. It is necessary to avoid products such as bleach, chlorine, ammonia, soaps and general detergents, as they damage the protective films of the microcement. At MyRevest we have developed specific products to ensure a deeper cleaning and assure that the microcement coating is shiny and in perfect condition day by day: MyCleaner and MyCleaner Plus.

Microcement does not fade because it is a material made with mineral pigments that prevent it from losing color. It should also be noted that after daily exposure to sunlight, it is possible that colors may slightly fade.

Keeping the microcement coating in good condition over time depends on the attention paid to care and maintenance. It is advisable to apply a diluted wax application from time to time for the maintenance of the sealing layer.

The spillage of chemicals or the fall of sharp objects can damage the coating, leaving a visible mark on the surface. That is why it is important to take the same care as with a parquet floor, for example.

Microcement resists and handles high pedestrian traffic very well. However, if the wear and tear on the floor increases, we recommend applying a coat of our waxes (MyWax or MyWax Plus) about every six months. This ensures even higher protection, especially for floors covered with microcement, as it provides greater hardness.
