Microcement
Striking, Versatile and Durable

The Only Limitation is Your Imagination…

Microcement can be used for Interior and Exterior Surfaces

When installing microcement (or microcemento as commonly known in Europe), experience really is everything, which is why we would encourage you to let us – a team of skilled microcement applicators – take the job on for you. Microcement, also known as microtopping or polished concrete, is a luxurious decorative coating made up of marble dust, quartz, water-based resins, additives, and mineral pigments and is perfect for application on both interior and exterior surfaces. It is versatile, meaning it can be applied to almost any base material, and some common uses are on floors, walls, stairs, ceilings, swimming pools, kitchens, bathrooms, terraces. Due to its striking finish, it is increasingly being used in both the private and commercial sectors and can be seen in many high-end restaurants, bars, offices, and galleries.

Why is microcement becoming a favourite for property owners, architects, and designers alike?

  • It can be adapted to have various finishes, meaning that we can create a bespoke aesthetic just for you. This material can be coloured in a range of shades, can be matte, satin, or gloss, and can be applied in thick, medium, or fine depth. Using our fine trowel skills, we can craft polished, ragged, brushed, pitted, raked, and many other finishes. 
  • The maintenance required is low and easy. Due to its seamless composition and lack of any grout, microcement is easy to clean – day-to-day, water and a mild detergent should be sufficient. 
  • Microcement is a durable and long-lasting material. Despite the thin layer, it has impressive resistance to use, impacts, scratches, and chemical products, and is waterproof. 
  • In this day and age, a material’s environmental impact is significant to consider. Microcement involves a relatively waste-free application, has a lower carbon footprint, does not emit volatile emissions, and lasts almost indefinitely. Therefore, not only is microcement a good choice for you, but also the planet. 
  • Due to its flexibility, microcement can be used over underfloor heating and is more effective than alternatives as it is applied in a thin layer. These thin layers allow heat from the pipes to pass through with little resistance.
  • There is no need to break up existing floors; instead, it can be applied straight on top thanks to its adhesion power.

Does microcement crack?

If applied carefully by professionals like ourselves, microcement will not ordinarily crack unless there is significant movement of the substrate that it is applied to (this is similar for most siding materials).
