Unfair Reputation

Microcement is right now the most designer cladding material on the market. It is widely used by decorators, interior designers and architects, both in new construction and renovations. It is being used indoors and outdoors, for walls, floors, stairs, furniture, toilets and even ceilings.

Here in this post we go into detail why construction people speak ill of microcement:

  • Ignorance: microcement is a material that has greatly improved its raw materials, resins and varnishes. It even applies to shower trays and sinks.
  • Not knowing how to apply it: microcement needs applicators who know the steps, waiting times and layers necessary to reach a perfect finish. Experience is necessary for a perfect application.
  • Bad applicators: in all professions there are professionals who do not do their job well. In our case, where the microcement is of a methodical and detailed application, the errors produced by these bad applicators are very visible.

Unprofessional Beginnings

  • Bad products: polyurethane varnish is a product that has evolved a lot since the beginning of microcement back in 2007. Today it achieves unbeatable hardness and waterproofing. As well as mortar, which has been increasing its hardness to reach levels for very high pedestrian traffic. Currently it can be used even in commercial premises, where the movement of people is intensive and requires high hardness.

  • Beginnings of microcement. As in all startups, the factories that began to produce it were testing products to try to achieve the effect of polished concrete and many of their startup products were of poor quality. I was starting a new coating and these early application errors led to the fame that followed.

    All these events have contributed to the bad reputation of microcement and that many people repeat their problems. At CimentStudio we have had to repair many defects due to misapplication by other professionals, and this has helped us to learn more about all the processes.

    Microcement is a continuous decorative coating that adds a touch of exclusivity to any room, and that well applied will not cause problems. It has been and is currently being used by the most renowned interior designers. We can safely say that it is a perfect material to create the desired space with all the colors to your imagination.
