It is a continuous high-decoration, thin coating that can be applied to any type of surface, both indoors and outdoors.
It is composed of a cementitious base, selected minerals, acrylic resins, pigments and other components to obtain more resistance and waterproofing.
The absence of joints makes microcement an ideal material to create avant-garde environments with an unmatched feeling of spaciousness. The creation of continuous spaces is joined by its great adherence to any type of surface. This functionality makes it perfect for remodels, as it can also be applied to the existing material without the need to remove it. Covering floors and walls without debris is a reality.
It is the perfect covering to achieve finishes similar to smooth cement, but with nuances similar to some marbles.
Microcement has anti-slip properties depending on the roughness with which the surface is endowed or with the application of a final coat of varnish. The more rough the final texture of the surface, the more safety it will have.
Microcement 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 completely fireproof, so it provides high fire resistance.
It is a perfect covering to achieve an elegant surface. The absence of joints translates into a greater sense of space and continuity. It is an ideal material to achieve an aesthetic result and adaptable to different rooms and styles.
Microcement cannot be applied on surfaces with humidity, as it can affect the adhesion of the coating and its finish. The steam from the humidity can create problems of stains on the surface.
Microcement can be applied over radiant floor heating, 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. It is key, before its application, that the support is healthy. It is necessary to check that there are no detached parts, poorly applied paints or poorly placed tiles.
Having the bases in good condition is essential to avoid the appearance of future cracks and fissures in the surface where the microcement is applied.
Yes, the microcement can be applied if the surface is healthy, level and free of greases. In this case, it is not necessary to remove the existing surface and the entire application process can be performed without 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 slip-resistant floor.
Before applying the microcement, make sure 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 on any surface, except living wood. In the case of tiles, the support must first be leveled and the joints covered. This material adheres without problems on the existing surface and the previous joints will not be noticeable.
It is most advisable to apply microcement at the end of the works and with personnel specialized in the use of this material. It is a decorative coating that needs expert and professional hands to achieve quality finishes.
Plaster or plasterboard supports are the most recommended for applying microcement, as they are absorbent surfaces. Before starting the coating, make sure that the plaster or plasterboard has set.
The average time for a microcement application is 4 to 5 days.
Microcement is a porous material, but for greater safety a final layer of varnish is applied making it completely waterproof to water, making it a perfect coating to apply in the bathroom, sink, shower tray or bathtub. The sense of unity and resistance to pressure are guaranteed.
It's important and necessary to seal the microcement, as it provides increased hardness and facilitates the maintenance of the coating. The layer of polyurethane protection 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.

To clean microcement only water and PH neutral soap are needed, aggressive products should never be used. It's necessary to avoid products such as bleach, chlorine, ammonia, soaps and detergents in general, as they damage the protective films of the microcement.
Microcement does not fade because it is a material made with mineral pigments that prevent color loss. It's also important to note that after daily exposure to sunlight, it's possible that the colors may fade slightly.
Keeping the microcement coating in good condition over time depends on the attention paid to care and maintenance. It's advisable that a diluted wax application for maintaining the sealing layer is performed periodically.
The spillage of chemicals or the fall of sharp objects can damage the coating leaving a visible mark on the surface.
