Our Microcement Floor plaster is developed with the latest in polymer admixture technologies all blended with high quality white cement, silica flour and graded silicas. This line of plaster comes as a basecoat 50 mesh for embedding mesh and smoothing over tiles and subfloors, as well as a 75 mesh fine grade that is useful in creating polished or medium textured finishes and comes in a light grey meant to mimic the natural look of concrete, and a white base that can be colored with our powder tints. Our Microcement can be used on interior floors, exterior driveways, walkways, pool decks, countertops etc Microcement Floor 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 very strong, highly modified, and comes in a dry bag mix that does not require any additives other than water. Microcement naturally has heat reduction characteristics that make it great for outdoor areas where you will be walking barefoot. This product is great for new build floors or for going over existing tiled floors etc.
CAUTION: Kerdi Foam board is not compatible with our Microcement system. Theese boards are generally too flexible for larger walls and have limited impact resistance for thin veneer coatings. We recommend Densglass, Blue Aqua Board, and Hardi Backer board as the three best options for backing. We recommend the use of Ardex 8 + 9 waterproofing due to its strength and crack prevention and limited risk of delamination. Always prime your walls with our leplex primer prior to installing Ardex 8 + 9 to ensure a clean cohesive bond without any dust acting as a bond breaker. DO NOT use kerdi sheet membranes on floors or walls as they delaminate easily and have bubbles and other risks that are not compatible with our Microcement System.
Do not use Kerdi foam for any benches or shower curbs. The floor in the shower should be made with speed slope with the grate finished into the speed slope and or you can use a kerdi pan and apply a small tile to finish to the grate and to provide added structural support prior to adding Microcement. Do not add grout to the tiles and only prime with our extreme primer plus.
Recommended for areas that are stable, sound and not flexible with moving joints.
