So what is Micro Cement?
Micro cement is a cement based material that is used to seal and cover existing flooring, walls ceilings and other surfaces such as bar tops, work surfaces and tables. Its main benefits include the aesthetics, the longevity, variety of colours and its cleanliness.
Micro cement is chosen by interior designers and architects from all over the world because it has the edge on other screed and cement due to its modern and stylish looks.
Some of its main properties are the fact that it has a high resistance to abrasion (5 times higher than that of concrete), It is very resistant to weight, permanent footprints, friction, shock, high, anti-slip, temperatures, water, moisture and to ultraviolet.
Lots of examples see micro cement being used in high traffic areas since it bears weight so well. It also copes very well against fluctuating heat and water. Perfect for Saunas and Steam rooms.
Variety of colours
There are more than 1500 customised colours, and 50 standard colours available to choose from.
No debris is created during the application meaning no cleaning to do at the start or end. The application of the micro cement is a clean, quick process, one of the reasons people prefer it over normal cement or concrete.
It is very easy to maintain and keep clean. The cleaning is a simple process, just a mix of mild soap and water will work best for cleaning the floor on a daily basis, in high traffic areas you can weekly use the Easyfloor cleaner product that will help with degreasing, leaving the floors clean and shiny.
