What kind of material is microcement? Microcement or microbeton is one of the new types of decorative coating, very similar in appearance to concrete and consists of a mineral based and polymeric additives, which give it special qualities. It is based on the conversion of the chemical structure of the concrete. Thus, thanks to the additives, microcement can be applied on any surface or base in a very thin layer (up to 3 mm). Despite this, it does not crack, does not crumble and has a high degree of flexibility.
Minirasex microcement and Rasex microbeton are undoubtedly the most innovative coatings, that do not require the special preparation of the underlying surface. Their adherence is so high, that you can apply it directly to the properly prepared old floor or ceramics. Furthermore, the load on the underlying surface is minimal, this makes microcement a serious competitor to ceramics, granite or marble.
The advantages of microcement.
- Versatile material. This innovative coating can be applied to any base, it spreads and adheres perfectly to the following surfaces: concrete, cement, metal, tile, plastic, and even to asphalt! It is used to decorate walls, ceilings and as a base for the complex mosaic floors.
- High adhesion to any base. As mentioned in the previous paragraph, microcement is easily applied on any surface. Thanks to the polymers and other components, it does not flake and does not detach from the glass. For the application, the surface should polished and successively cleaned and vacuumed.
- The uniqueness of the structure: Microcement is applied in three layers; The first is a primer that is fixed firmly to the base; The second layer is decorative and is constituted by the finishing elements; The third one is the protective layer that prevents the penetration of moisture and improves the abrasion.
- The high strength of the material. Microcement easily tolerates mechanical stress and is often used as a finish for any surface. We can choose the microcement for any apartment, office or public space.
- A variety of colour and texture solutions. We offer our customers the widest choice of pigments from the Italian manufacturer with more than 40 colours. The surface may be smooth, rough, shiny or matte. Everything depends on the interior design and your creativity.
- Example of a thin layer of plaster. Minirasex microcement is applied in layers of not more than three or four millimetres. Its consumption is very cheap and the load on the surface of the coating is minimal.
- Rapidity of application. The thin thickness of the coating gives also an advantage of the rapidity in finish. This way in a single day you can apply up to a hundred square meters of coating.
- Waterproof / water repellent. This type of coating has been defined MICRO because the thickness of its particles is 2-3 times thinner than a human hair.
Thus, the steam or moisture can not penetrate this barrier, and for this reason microcement coatings are used in humid environments such as bathrooms, kitchens, swimming pools etc.
- Flameproof. Microcement tolerates well high temperatures, it is fireproof and does not contribute to the spread of fire.
- Comfortable and pleasant surface. With the use of microcement, unlike the tiles, the walls feel warm to the touch and retain the heat. This quality of microcement will be an additional advantage for the coatings in the bathrooms.
