Beton- oder Mikrozementeffekte sind heutzutage für viele moderne Innenambiancen gefragt, insbesondere für Küchen, Bade- und Wohnzimmer.
Modern mineral ready-made wall covering for any interior ambiance. Only for walls and ceilings. It is not a cement-based mortar and therefore not suitable for use on floors or exterior surfaces. For high-transit areas such as kitchens, bathrooms (not humid area), corridors, stairways, etc. we recommend protecting with a varnish. Neutral base which can be teinted with our Esencia pigment pastes or with any water-based colourant. Easy and quick application on most surfaces. Any kind of smooth Microcement-type finishes or textured finishes can be obtained, such as marble-type veinings, rustic finishes or concrete imitations. Does not contain limestone. It is therefore more flexible than limestone stuccos and can cover microfissures. Available formats in 8 Kg for aprox. 8 to 12 m2 and 24 Kg for aprox. 24 to 36 m2.

Preparation Nanometric sealant in case of absorbent or loose surfaces. It can be applied directly on smooth or irregular surfaces, with or without primer, as long as the wall is free of dust, oil, nicotine and dirt. The product yield is higher on smooth and well prepared surfaces.
Primer We recommend our Natural blanco, an acrylic paint with high coverage and washability, moderately sealant in order to grant the precise adherence, increase the yield and ensure the best technical behaviour of the finish. Apply one coat as is or 2 coats diluted with a maximum of 20% water. Let it dry 8 hours between coats.
Tinting Manually with our Esencia water-based colourants. May also be tinted with tinting machine if desired. Esencia are concentrated pigment pastes made up of various pigments, yielding very bright colours which are resistant to alkaline media up to PH 13. They are highly recommended in case of application on alkaline surfaces such as cement, concrete or limestone mortars. The product has a neutral PH. It can therefore be tinted with water-based colourants. Add a maximum of 10% colourant in weight or volume. Ideally less than 5% in order not to dilute in excess and maintain its technical properties.

Application Apply the first coat directly by inox-steel or plastic trowel. It is also possible to put the material on the surface by roller and smoothen by trowel while fresh. Do not spread the material too much in order to avoid dragging along the mica mineral particles contained in the product mass. This first coat can be either smoothed out or textured using different tools and techniques in order to obtain veined, ridged, rustic and travertino-style finishes. In case the first coat is not finished smooth, the edges, ridges and veins will be enhanced and darkened when polishing the second coat, resulting in a bigger contrast. Allow to dry at least 24 hours between coats. Apply a second coat and smooth it out with the steel trowel. Polish the surface in order to friction the mineral mica particles and obtain sparkling effects which contrast with the colour and the texture of the product. In case of textured first coats the darkened ridges will contrast in addition. A thinner third coat might be necessary on rough or irregular surfaces if a very smooth final finish is desired.
Protection Let the last coat of Efecto Microcemento dry for at least 24 hours before applying a water-based protector. Acrylic or monocomponent polyurethane varnishes can be used. We recommend Protector Universal as a matt finish for interiors, Hidrofugante (silicon-based; breathable) for exterior façades and Barniz Alto Brillo (directly on any surface) if high gloss and washability are required.
