Microcement – an investor-friendly technology

Microcement –  floors made of polymer concrete

Every day architects, designers and interior designers try to surprise their clients with ideas and new solutions. The use of natural materials such as concrete, glass, steel and wood has become a permanent trend in modern architecture. Also when decorating the interior you can observe the willingness of investors to use them. Thanks to the combination of natural materials, the interiors take on a unique character.

Until recently, the use of concrete in contemporary architecture was very complicated. Each concrete use was associated with careful planning of investments at very early stages (e.g. through appropriate strengthening of the construction of walls on which concrete slabs were to hang), and the final effect did not always satisfy architects and investors. This is due to the nature of the concrete, the structure of which is different each time and the effects planned during the preparation of the investment often differed from what the contractors performed.

Fortunately, the dynamic development of building materials technology, and in particular the use of the latest generation of polymers, allowed to develop a material that solves most of the problems faced by contractors and investors during concrete projects.

 

Microcement – an investor-friendly technology

The microcement was invented for the needs of those people who would like to use in their interiors material with a concrete finish. This material allows for the creation of homogeneous surfaces without expansion joints, which are an indispensable part of old type concrete floors. The use of high quality polymers strengthens the entire material structure and ensures very high adhesion to the substrate and guarantees a very high resistance to abrasion. In addition, the microcement protected with polyurethane varnish is easy to clean. Most often, the microcement is used in kitchens and rooms that are to refer to the Scandinavian style.

Water tightness is another feature that distinguishes the microcement on the building materials market. Until recently, the only solution for finishing bathrooms and other wet rooms was practically only ceramic tiles. However, with tiles limiting it is always their size and the need to cut them so that they fit into the bathroom space, which usually deviates from what the architect dreamed of. It is also worth mentioning that tiles are not the most valuable material when it comes to keeping them clean. Everyone who has tried to clean up bright joints between tiles knows this.

In turn, traditional concrete floors and previously known decorative plasters could not guarantee complete waterproofness, which practically excluded them from use in such places.

The microcement, having a crosslinked structure, provides complete protection against the passage of water. Thanks to this, it can be used with no fear in the shower or in other places temporarily or permanently exposed to contact with water. It is resistant to liquids, shampoos and soaps and other substances that may appear in the bathroom.

It is also worth mentioning that the microcement is increasingly replacing traditional pool foils with which the bottoms of home water bodies are taught. Microcement allows you to make a rough surface, which makes it safe when walking and prevents accidental slipping.

The unique set of features in one material, which is a microcement, allows for a completely new approach to concrete when finishing floors and walls when designing and finishing interiors.

The price  of products included in the microcement system is so attractive that anyone who wants to give their interior a raw and natural look can afford it.
