On the application of Microcemento®
How is MICROCEMENTO applied?

Microcemento® is applied in a traditional manner, by hand and trowel. Since it is not necessary to use heavy or large machinery, the product is suitable for application in any type of construction works, including inhabited homes and elevated work.

Are you the ones in charge of preparing the floor on which MICROCEMENTO will be applied?

Microcemento® is applied in a traditional manner, by hand and trowel. Since it is not necessary to use heavy or large machinery, the product is suitable for application in any type of construction works, including inhabited homes and elevated work.

What if the surface to be covered by MICROCEMENTO is moist?

Microcemento® is impermeable on the unexposed side, which makes it suitable for bathrooms and kitchens, even shower cubicles or bathtubs. It doesn’t have, however, impermeabilizing properties, so the surface on which it will be applied needs to be completely dry to prevent moisture from arising later.

Can MICROCEMENTO be applied on a deteriorated paved surface without removing it?

Yes. Microcemento® is especially suitable for this type of works and, therefore, there is no need to remove the base. Being just 2 mm thick, it does not alter floor height significantly or make it necessary to reduce door size.

As to remodeling works, what treatment must existing surfaces undergo before application of MICROCEMENTO ?

In general, proper cleaning before direct application is enough – no matter the surface. If holes have been made for installations, you will simple need to fill them up with cement mortar. In the latter case, it is advisable to use special expansive mortar for repairs.

In new construction works, what is the most suitable material to be used if MICROCEMENTO wants to be applied later on?

Since the product can adhere to any surface, it is only required that the surface be rigid, flat and free of cracks. Thus, the base might just as well be a screed mortar or one with a swirled texture. In many cases, for practical reasons, even a very low-cost ceramic covering can be used as the base.

How long should be allowed before opening to foot traffic?

One of the greatest advantages of Microcemento® is quick application: the surface covered can be opened to foot traffic one day after the work has been finished.

Doesn’t the fact that MICROCEMENTO does not require joints increase the risk of cracking

Absolutely not. Microcemento®’s thinness and high adhesion strength prevent it from cracking in any circumstance. Cracks may arise only if the base undergoes any settlement motion or significant dilatation.
