It is a highly decorative, thin, continuous coating that can be applied to any type of surfaces, both indoors and outdoors.
It is composed of a cementitious base, selected minerals, acrylic resins, pigments and other components to obtain more resistance and impermeability.
The advantage of jointless finishes make microcement an ideal material for creating avant-garde ambiences with an unequalled feeling of spaciousness. The continuous spaces along with its great adherence to any type of surface present a perfect creation. The functionality makes it very stuitable for renovations, because it can be applied over the existing material without the need to remove it, covering floors and walls without rubble and debrit .
It is the perfect cladding to achieve finishes similar to smooth cement, but with distinction similar to some marbles.
Microcement has non-slip properties depending on the roughness of the surface or the final coat of varnish applied. The rougher the final texture of the surface, the safer it will be.
Microcement has a high chemical and mechanical resistance. It is a resistant material to impacts. It withstands temperature changes, abrasion and sunlight, completely non-flammable and therefore highly resistant to fire.
It is the perfect cladding for an elegant surface. The jointless finish displays broadness and a sense of continuity. It is an ideal material for achieving an aesthetic result that can fit to different rooms and styles.
Microcement should not be applied on damp surfaces, because this may weaken the adhesion of the coating and its finish. Moisture vapour can cause stains problems on the surface.
Microcement can be applied on underfloor heating, but it is necessary to carry out the heating protocol beforehand to avoid cracks caused by temperature changes.
Microcement is a coating that does not crack by itself due to its elasticity. It is essential that, before applying it, the substrate is in good condition. It is necessary to check if there are peeling parts, paint in poor condition or loosely tiles.
Having the substrates in good conditions is crucial to avoid the future cracks and fissures where the microcement is applied.
Yes, microcement can be applied if the surface is clean, level 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 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 stone finish and it is non-slip.
Before applying the microcement, make sure that the surface is level, free of damp, completely clean. Once the substrate is clean, apply a coat of primer to consolidate the substrate and then place the mesh to reinforce the coating.
Microcement can be applied on any surfaces, except natural wood. In the case of tiles, first of all the substrate must be levelled and the joints should be filled. Microcement adheres to the existing surfaces without problem and the the joints will not be noticeable.
It is better to apply microcement at the end of the construccion process and by professionals specialized in this material. It is a decorative coating that requires experts hands to achieve quality finishes.
Plaster or plasterboard substrates are the most recommended for applying microcement, because they are absorbent surfaces. Before starting the coating, make sure that the plaster or plasterboard is hard enought.
The average time for a microcement application is about 4 to 5 days.
Microcement is a porous material, but for greater safety, a final coat of varnish is applied to make it totally waterproof, therefore microcement is a perfect covering for bathrooms, washbasins, shower plates or bathtubs. The feeling of unity and resistance to pressure are reached.
It is important and necessary to seal the microcement, because it presents greater hardness and facilitates the maintenance of the cladding. The polyurethane protective layer prevents stains and gives it a final touch that enhances the design. A matt, satin or gloss result can be achieved, depending on the desired finish.
To clean microcement you only need water and neutral PH soap, never use aggressive products. Products such as bleach, chlorine, ammonia, soaps and detergents in general should be avoided, because they damage the protective cover of the microcement.
Microcement colours do not fade because it is a material made with mineral pigments that do not lose colours. However we should bear in mind that after daily exposure to sunlight, the colours may fade slightly.
Keeping microcement in good condition over time depends on the care and maintenance. It is advisable to apply a diluted wax every now and then to protect the sealing layer.
Spilled chemicals or falling sharp objects can damage the coating, leaving a visible mark on the surface.
