HOW TO APPLY MICROCEMENT? BASIC STEPS

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

1 Prepare the surface

It is of vital importance to prepare the floors or walls that are going to be coated. To do this, it is necessary to clean the base leaving it free of dust and grease and repair any imperfections that may occur. 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, it is necessary to apply the primer to help the microcement adhere faster and more easily 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 preparatory microcement

The next step to follow is to apply the preparatory microcement layers 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 final layer that is applied later. To achieve excellent finishes, each of them must have its corresponding drying and sanding time.

4 Apply final microcement

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

5 Protect the floor or wall coated with microcement

To achieve impeccable finishes and much longer lasting ones, it is necessary to apply a varnish that seals the coating and protects it from wear due to abrasion, impacts, ambient humidity, etc.

MICROCEMENT COLORS: MYREVEST RANGE

MICROCEMENT FINISHES AND TEXTURES

The textures of microcement and the application of sealant varnishes determine the style of the finishes. Depending on the style that is wanted 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 fine grain to achieve silky and soft finishes that enhance the aesthetic value of the coating. The medium texture is associated with indoor floors, which it gives greater resistance. The coarse grain provides a higher roughness and is perfect for applying to exterior pavements achieving a rustic style.

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

  • Gloss: is the finish that enhances the color of the microcement and gives strength to the coating termination.
  • Matte: ideal for achieving a natural-looking finish and does not reflect light. It handles wear and dirt well.
  • Satin: it is the finish that is halfway between glossy and matte. It is used to enhance finishes with a soft shine.
  • Super matte: provides a simple look with less shine than the matte finish

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT MICROCEMENT

PRODUCT

The absence of joints makes micro-cement an ideal material for creating avant-garde environments with an unparalleled sensation of spaciousness. The creation of continuous spaces is combined with its great adherence to any type of surface. This functionality makes it perfect for renovations since it can also be applied over the existing material without the need to remove it. Covering 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.

Micro-cement has non-slip properties depending on the roughness given to the surface or with the application of a final layer of varnish. The rougher the final texture of the surface, the safer it is.

Micro-cement is a material very resistant to environmental moisture and direct contact with water, making it the ideal material to apply in bathrooms and kitchens. Depending on the composition of the micro-cement that the professional uses, it can be more or less waterproof.

To increase this waterproofness, 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.

Micro-cement has a high chemical and mechanical resistance, which translates into a material resistant to impacts. It withstands temperature changes, abrasion, and sun rays. It is also totally non-combustible, providing high fire resistance.

The durability of MyRevest microcement is high. With simple maintenance, we guarantee that it is capable of withstanding the passage of time without hardly deteriorating. To keep it as new and extend its durability, we recommend the use of protective waxes.

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

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

In estimating a microcement renovation budget, professionals take several factors into account. The final price of this coating depends on factors such as the type of microcement to be used, the surfaces where it will be applied and the travel of the professionals.

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

Some of the problems that microcement-coated surfaces may have are scratches, cracks, or even lack of impermeability. If a good quality microcement system is used, the application process is done by expert hands and a sealer is used on the final layers, these problems should not appear.

The MyRevest microcement systems do not present these problems, they have unmatched quality. In our catalog, you can find products to protect the supports coated with this material, so they keep looking like the first day.

What is mistakenly called polished microcement is actually polished cement. Two concepts that are often confused and have nothing to do with each other, although at first glance it may seem like they do. Polished cement or polished concrete, as it is also known, is actually a decorative finish. A material whose field of application is limited to floors, and it is neither good thermal nor acoustic insulation. Its name refers to a rotary polisher used to achieve its characteristic gloss finish. Other drawbacks are that it requires mesh and dilation joints, it can lose shine over time and cracks may appear.

Liquid porcelain is a material that also has a high demand for its many virtues and finishes. Which one is better?, you might be wondering. Well, the answer is that it depends on the finish that the customer is looking for, the surface that is going to be renovated as well as the time frame available to carry out the work.

For example, liquid porcelain can only be placed on floors due to its viscosity. Something that does not happen with a microcement whose field of use also extends to walls, ceilings and furniture. These circumstances are also noticeable in terms of finish. While the former can implement 3D elements and visual effects that increase its price, microcement provides a uniform finish.

The step by step also differs. Liquid porcelain serves only for interiors, microcement is suitable for outdoors. Just as porcelain requires a self-leveling in its application and, added to the factors described above, its price is much more expensive than microcement.

APPLICATION

It is a perfect coating to achieve an elegant surface. The absence of joints translates into a greater spaciousness and a feeling of continuity. It is an ideal material to achieve an aesthetic result and adaptable to different rooms and styles.

As a general rule, microcement cannot be applied to surfaces with humidity, as it can affect the adhesion of the coating and its finish. But, in some cases the origin of the humidity can be repaired or the surface can be treated with epoxy resin, which blocks the humidity or the water vapor coming from the support.

Microcement can be applied over a radiant floor, but previously 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. It is key that the support is in good condition before its application. It is necessary to check that there are no detached parts, poorly conditioned paint, or poorly placed tiles.

Having the bases in good condition is basic to avoid the appearance of future cracks and fractures on the surface where the microcement is applied.

Parquet and wood are materials composed of moveable boards. Boards 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 deck.

Yes, microcement can be applied if the surface is in good condition, leveled, and free of grease. In this case, it is not necessary to remove the existing surface, and the entire application process can be carried out without a problem.

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

The recommendation of professionals, among whom we include ourselves, is very clear in this regard. It is advisable to use 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, some nuances should be highlighted. There are types of microcement for which it is not necessary to use mesh, such as our ready-to-use microcement, MyReady Go! This is why you should always ask a trusted professional.

Before applying microcement, you must ensure that the surface is level, free of moisture, completely healed and clean. With the clean support, a layer of primer must be applied to consolidate the support and then put the mesh to give an extra strength to the coating.

Microcement can be applied over any surface, except for live wood. In the case of tiles, you must first level the base and cover the joints. This material adheres without problems on the existing surface and you will not notice the previous joints.

It is best to apply microcement at the end of construction work and with specialized personnel in the use of this material. It is a decorative coating that requires expert and professional hands to achieve quality finishes.

Plaster or plasterboard supports are the most recommended for applying microcement, since they are absorbent surfaces. Before starting with the coating, make sure that the plaster or plasterboard has set.

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

Microcement is a porous material, but for added safety a final layer of varnish is applied that makes it totally waterproof to water, making it a perfect coating to apply in the bathroom, the sink, the shower tray or the bathtub. The sense of unity and resistance to pressure are guaranteed.

It's important and necessary to seal the microcement, as it provides greater hardness and facilitates the maintenance of the coating. The polyurethane protection layer prevents stains from appearing and provides 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 anti-slip and waterproof finish that is so highly 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 support 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 benefits of microcement allow it to be a very versatile coating that can be applied indistinctly indoors and outdoors. In fact, the use of microcement in outdoor spaces such as terraces, facades or swimming pools is increasingly popular due to its exceptional performance. It resists UV light and rain, as well as abrasion and high traffic wear. It's only necessary to choose the most suitable type of microcement for this field of application.

MAINTENANCE

To clean microcement, you only need water and neutral PH soap, you should never use aggressive products. Products like bleach, chlorine, ammonia, soaps and detergents in general must be avoided, as they damage the protective films of the microcement. At MyRevest, we have developed specific products to ensure a deeper clean and keep the microcement coating looking shiny and in perfect condition every 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 borne in mind that after daily exposure to sunlight, colors may fade slightly.

Preserving the microcement coating in good condition over time depends on how much attention is paid to care and maintenance. It is advisable to occasionally apply diluted wax for the maintenance of the seal coat.

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

Microcement resists high traffic of people very well. However, if the wear of the floor is greater, we recommend applying a layer of one of our waxes (MyWax or MyWax Plus) approximately every six months. This ensures even higher protection especially of pavements coated with microcement, because it contributes to its hardness.
