What is a Microcement coating?

What is a Microcement coating? 1

Many ask the question, what material should be the Microcement substructure? Many people think that Microcement is the same as cementing !!!

It should be noted that Microcement can be applied as a decorative coating on any bed that can be worked with a trowel. To bring it to mind, Microcement is like tile or ceramic glaze and its substructure is like ceramic and tile biscuits. The difference is that this substructure can be curved or with any shape and icon and the Microcement can be applied on it as a final coating.

Since the decorative coating of Microcement has an approximate thickness of 2 to 3 mm, the surface under the Microcement work should be smooth and without waves. It is repeated that the work form is not created in the Microcement coating and it is the Microcement subwork that creates the form.

Suitable materials for interior wall and service wall substructure:

Soft gypsum – Softened cement – Tile or ceramic – Knauf – Raw or coated MDF – Cement board – Fiber cement board – Aquaponel or other smooth materials. In terms of adhesion, these materials are so sticky that they also stick to glass.

Suitable materials for floor substructure:

Mosaic, softened cement, ceramic, tile, stone, concrete, trowel, or any hard material with a smooth surface

Suitable materials for infrastructure in exterior:

Cement board, fiber cement board, softened cementing, aqua panel, stone and ceramic (for reconstruction projects)

Some common questions about Microcement sub-work:

If it is under the work of tile or ceramic Microcement, do the joints of the tile or ceramic disappear with the application of Microcement?

In 99% of cases, tile joints are removed by applying Microcement, unless the quality of the old tile is very poor and there is a very high post in the joints between the tiles. The thickness of about 3 mm Microcement has the ability to completely cover the surface of old tiles or ceramics.

If the Microcement substructure is cementing, should the procedure be applied or is the primer cement sufficient alone?

Cement sand mortar sub-work is one of the suitable options for Microcement work bed and must be softened and lining cement alone is not enough. But the surface of the trowel and ingot is sufficient and there is no need to apply the watering surface.

Between cement plaster and gypsum plaster, which is a more suitable option for Microcement substructure?

Both options are good if they provide a good surface in terms of smoothness and no wave. Consequently, plastering is not a suitable option for infrastructure in the project facade and cementing option is offered in outdoor spaces.

 What points should be considered if cement-lined substructure (plaster and surface) is used as Microcement substructure?

If the substructure is cement-lined Microcement, the work surface should be covered with cement mortar. It does not matter whether the soft is stretched with white cement or black cement, and due to the thickness of 2 to 3 mm of the Microcement coating, the underlying paint will not affect the paint on the work. Another point is that the work surface should be as free as possible from waves, ups and downs, and on vertical surfaces the work should be plumb and ingot.

If ready-made panels such as cement board, gypsum board or fiber cement board are used as a micro-cement substructure, what points should be observed in their implementation?

The important point in using this type of material as a micro-cement substructure is that the structure of their substructure must be suitable and not allow the joints and other parts to play the role of these materials. If this type of material shakes sharply in the joints, there is a possibility of cracking of the Microcement coating in those areas.

If you use leaf gypsum (knauf), it is better to apply knauf putty, but if this putty is not applied, there will be no problem and the Microcement paste will practically take on the role of knauf putty. But the consumption of Microcement materials and its rent will be so high that it will naturally affect the cost.
