The latest global trend in floor and bathroom design is Microcement, which is thinner than a polished concrete overlay, and significantly lighter than most other options. Microcement appeared and became very popular in France when Dimitri Koubi began applying it in 2008 under the name “Beton Cire”, meaning waxed concrete.
Microcement is a strong and versatile option for Showers and Floors
Microcement is laid 2-4 mm thick, is waterproof, impact resistant, and easy to clean. As a continuous coating, there are no joint lines that can harbor debris (dirt, bacteria) like a tile grout line. A non-slip aggregate on the sealer coat may also be applied. This plaster can overlay tiles, so long as they are secured to their substrate. This provides an easy method of changing flooring or a bathroom area without demolition. The overlays are designed to be used on horizontal and vertical areas, both inside and outside, and can adhere to most existing substrates, as well as new wood, cement board, terrazzo, marble, concrete, stone, etc. Strong and versatile, we have used it in on floors, columns, feature walls, bathroom stalls, fireplaces, backsplashes, and other special features in businesses and homes. Using design patterns (tape, custom stencils, etc) we can create an impressive, durable and unique brand image in a floor or on a feature wall.
Our Microcement Wall and Shower plaster is developed with the latest in polymer admixture technologies all blended with high quality white cement, marble flour and graded silicas. This line of plaster comes in a white basecoat and a fine and x-fine topcoat grade that are useful in creating polished or medium texture finishes. These also come in a light gray meant to mimic the natural look of light concrete, and a white base that can be colored with our powder tints.
This line of plaster is more easy to work with and is applied more like our venetian plasters and does not have a liquid or more fluid consistency. In order to achieve this the plaster psi strength is decreased and should not be used on floors or countertops etc. Our Microcement wall can be used on interior walls and exterior walls and especially shower stalls or ceilings where a more workable plaster is required. Microcement should be applied in a minimum of 3 coats over our interior or exterior supplied quartz stone primer, ardex p82, or epoxy primers for exteriors etc. This product is strong, highly modified, and comes in a dry bag mix that does not require any additives other than water. Do not use on horizontal surfaces, only for vertical areas.
