What is microcement?
Learn all about this coating

Microcement is the decorative coating that has been designed to personalise all types of surfaces with luxury finishes. It provides a continuous surface that conveys distinction and sophistication in any living space.

The absence of joints maximises the spaciousness of the space and facilitates the maintenance of the cladding. With microcement, each surface is unique. It covers floors and walls to create an exclusive decorative style.

Its resistance to high temperatures, abrasion and the wear and tear caused by the passage of time make it the ideal covering for both interior and exterior surfaces. In addition, it does not crack or crack.

What is microcement made of?

Microcement is formulated with cement, resins, aggregates, additives and pigments. From the mixture of these elements, a uniform paste of only 3 millimeters is obtained, ideal for coating walls, floors and ceilings. The result of applying this coating is the creation of a beautiful, consistent, seamless and non-cracking surface. As a decorative coating it is a lightweight material, which does not require large equipment for its application. The necessary materials are transported in a more convenient way, compared to other decorative materials.

Advantages of microcement: a material of supreme quality

If the advantages described so far give a glimpse of what microcement is capable of, there are still more virtues to be discovered in an exclusive coating that combines aesthetics and functionality.

Synonymous with quality of life

With microcement, worries about cleaning and maintenance of spaces disappear. Thanks to its high technology and its "Easy to clean" property, the hygiene of walls and floors is child's play. The absence of joints facilitates the care of the coating, which means that it can even be applied on shower trays and achieve anti-slip and anti-bacterial surfaces. It is easy to clean and maintain.

One of the most important features is the fact that microcement can be mixed with colored pigments. This functionality allows two things to be done at the same time: coating and coloring the surface. Thanks to the variety of colors it allows, it is a material that guarantees unequalled beauty.

Allied to decorative styles

Microcement is a perfect ally for any decorative style. The continuity and elegance is the best argument to bet on this coating in minimalist, rustic, Nordic, industrial, vintage or classic environments.

Types of Luxury Concrete® microcement to create priceless spaces

The choice of microcement is not trivial. Each place has some characteristics that define it, has some needs to cover and is exposed to the conditions of the space. It is not only necessary to focus attention on achieving an overwhelming aesthetic that attracts all eyes. It is essential to choose a material with full guarantees that fits every situation.

An interior space is not subject to the climatic factors of the exterior, nor a room such as the living room to environmental humidity and water as the bathroom and kitchen are to a lesser degree. In the same way that to coat the area around a swimming pool it is essential to ensure a non-slip finish.

Therefore, in Luxury Concrete® we have developed specific microcement systems according to surface and space. So that you always get your decision right.

Two-component microcement

It is a coating composed of cement and resin. It offers high adhesion and a variety of textures to achieve unique finishes in any room. Our range of bicomponents consists of one for preparation (Concrete Base) and three for finishing to achieve luxury finishes on walls (Concrete Wall), floors (Concrete Floor), stone (Concrete Stone) and swimming pools (Concrete Pool).

Ready-to-use microcement

It is the coating that offers the fastest application. It is ideal for simple renovations in record time. This collection has products with different grain sizes that provide different finishes depending on the vertical or horizontal arrangement of the surface. For fine-grained walls Easycret Thin and coarse-grained Easycret Basic. Meanwhile, for floors with continuous and homogeneous finishes Easycret Medium, and for floors with more rocky finishes, Easycret Extra.


It is the microcement that contains the resin powder and only needs to be mixed with water. It is the product designed to facilitate storage and preparation. Our series of single-component microcements is composed of the Monocrete Base preparation coating, the Monocrete Wall finishing coating for walls and the Monocrete Floor finishing coating for floors.

Epoxy microcement

The microcement that combines aggregates and epoxy resin to offer an impeccable aesthetic finish and superior performance in demanding interior spaces. Concrete Pox is the ideal solution for covering walls and floors in factories, warehouses, commercial buildings, offices, restaurants and bathrooms. More resistant to abrasion, high traffic and water. Concrete Pox Extra, Concrete Pox Basic, Concrete Pox Medium and Concrete Pox Thin are the four available granulometries.

Lime-based microcement

Two-component and lime-based, Limecrete has everything one aspires to when decorating a space. A more sustainable composition for the planet, a handcrafted finish that allows you to play with aesthetics to unsuspected levels and a greater hardness to create crack-free surfaces. Tradition and future go hand in hand in its four highly decorative granulometries: Limecrete Extra, Limecrete Basic, Limecrete Medium and Limecrete Thin.

Where to apply microcement?

Any space can be the perfect place to show personality and status. Microcement as a luxury coating is the dream material to create privileged corners and convey the essence of housing or commercial premises taking care of all the details and joining the different surfaces with the same material.

Its versatility as a decorative cladding increases the design possibilities exponentially. Beyond the meters, any place that breathes luxury meets three premises: good distribution, quality finishes and brightness. Microcement is the common nexus of all three and lays the foundations for creating stylish spaces, whether on the floor, walls, kitchen, bathroom or outdoors, where visual limits do not exist.

Microcement floors

Microcement flooring is one of the most common applications due to its high resistance to foot traffic. Coating the pavement in this way is to create a surface that is easy to clean, since the absence of joints prevents dirt from becoming embedded in areas that are difficult to access.

As a luxury decorative coating, it can be applied in interiors and exteriors on any type of support, except parquet, since it contracts and expands, which could cause cracks. It is the best ally to enhance the luminosity of any room.

Microcement in walls

Betting on this coating on vertical surfaces is to do so for a silky finish that enhances the decorative style. It is the maximum expression of beauty that can be achieved with microcement. This coating gives greater durability, elasticity and resistance to the vertical surfaces on which it is placed and achieves finishes of high aesthetic value without eliminating the existing surface. Pure elegance on a non-trafficable surface.

With the application of the sealing varnish, the final finish is embellished and a coating impermeable to running water is achieved. It is the perfect solution for application in wet areas. The cementitious finish on the walls gives even more amplitude to each room and conveys an exquisite elegance.

Microcements in kitchens

Microcement in kitchens transforms and covers this part of the house so exposed to wear and tear without the need to remove the old tiles. Its extraordinary adhesion to all types of substrates and its high resistance are the best letter of introduction to renovate the kitchen with this luxury decorative coating. It is a stain-proof material.

Kitchens in which this material has been used to cover the floor or wall are resistant to the impact of everyday objects. They conquer the light and transmit a feeling of spaciousness superior to that offered by any other covering. It combines perfectly with metallic or stone finishes.

Microcement bathrooms

Microcement bathrooms have conquered the interiors and have become a source of inspiration. The time has come to cover the walls, floor, sink, shower or bathtub with the same material. The sealing varnish completes a dream application for a bathroom that is resistant to moisture. It is the ideal decorative coating for an anti-slip finish, a very important feature in a room where slips and falls are frequent.

The cherry on top of the renovated bathroom with this coating comes with the colors. If gray seems a cold tone, you can always choose a glossy finish or white for a warmer feeling. The options for this material are many and making a bathroom with your own style, is one of them. Custom bathroom designs

Microcement pools

Microcement pools are one of the latest trends in the decorative use of this coating. Renovating or creating a pool from scratch is a challenge that requires quality materials if you want to achieve unique finishes. Resistance to impacts and scratches is guaranteed. It offers continuity in design and total integration with the environment surrounding the pool.

The microcement in the pool neither expands nor contracts with temperature changes. Its application allows you to give a complete change to the pool with just a few millimeters thick. Create a dream pool to immerse yourself in elegance and luxury.

Microcement in exteriors

Is there anything more inviting to rest than a corner made to your specifications? Spaces such as terraces are perfect scenarios to enhance outdoor microcement. Its excellent durability and decorative finishes create unique spaces to relax.

The landscapes, the environment and the natural colors that surround the microcement in exteriors make it unmatched. If we add to this the elegance that a good choice of colors brings, it has no comparison with other decorative coatings.

We always like outdoor spaces, regardless of the time of year. And even more so if it is a large terrace, surrounded by a garden and with an impeccable continuous surface.

How is microcement applied?

p>Exclusivity is a property that makes something unique and singular. Totally different from the rest. Microcement coatings are so, in part, because of their handcrafted application. An installation that cannot be delegated to just anyone, but only to experts in the field who control from a to z of this art.

Trusting only experts to remodel a home or business is the only way to achieve successful results and guarantees, and thus meet the expectations of the most demanding customers.

As for the process of applying microcement itself, reserved only for expert workmanship, it should be noted that the method may vary depending on the microcement system. But also by the special treatment that may require the support on which the material will be placed. As for example those that present previous problems of capillary dampness.

Even so, and by way of summary, we present below a general overview of how to apply microcement in six quick and easy steps.

  1. Cleaning the substrate: The preparation of the substrate is essential and it is essential to ensure that it is free of dust, moisture and grease. The base of the support must be consolidated and in perfect conditions of planimetry.
  2. Application of primer or bonding bridge and placing a fibreglass mesh: The primer facilitates the adhesion of the microcement base with the surface.
  3. Microcement base or preparation: Two layers of microcement base will be applied, which offers a coarser grain. It offers high mechanical strength and strong adhesion on any type of support.
  4. Finishing microcement: Two layers of finishing microcement will be applied to the surface, whose texture will depend on the desired finish. Depending on the movements of the trowel, different aesthetic effects will also be achieved.
  5. Once the surface is dry and 24-48 hours after the application of the second layer of microcement finish, the surface will be sanded.
  6. Application of the sealing varnish: It is advisable to apply two layers of the finishing varnish.

Microcement colors: Luxury Concrete® range for any decorative style

When we think of microcement, most people associate this decorative coating with the color gray. But the truth is that it admits a wide variety of colors, textures and finishes. Its pigmentation system allows custom colors to be achieved.

Is microcement waterproof? Yes, it is

At Luxury Concrete® we know that there are certain elements that can threaten people's quality of life. For this reason, we manufacture products that can be definitive when it comes to creating spaces that breathe wellbeing.

In this way, our microcements resist in an original way to running water and its derivatives, such as humidity. This makes it the best option for covering areas such as kitchens or bathrooms where temperature variations and contact with water can be permanent.

Even so, this resistance can be greatly increased by applying our Primacrete Finish varnish, which creates a protective film that helps in the conservation and maintenance of such areas in great condition making them waterproof.

Is microcement anti-slip? Affirmative

In the pursuit of excellence, Luxury Concrete® never stops innovating to improve our products. For this reason, we have added one more quality to the list of our microcements: it is anti-slip.

Thus, among our range of systems, there are some such as Concrete Stone, which are naturally slip-resistant. In addition, we create varnishes with which any microcement support can become so.

Because we know that if a place is safe, it is more beautiful and that increases the desire to enjoy it. Thanks to this property, kitchens, bathrooms, swimming pools, increase their anti-slip performance with a roughness in their finishes never seen before, which helps to reduce the maximum number of slips that may occur.

Can microcement be applied to underfloor heating? Yes, it is possible

Luxury Concrete® understands luxury as a way of life, one that allows you to enjoy all the comforts of home. That is why we design microcements that are compatible with radiant floors (except Concrete Pox).

In addition to the best material, we also have the best team of professional applicators required for the application of this material on this type of flooring with integrated heating system, due to the complications that may arise during its application and implementation.

What is the price of microcement per m2?

All the elegance and distinction that Luxury Concrete® brings to any space does not influence its price. To determine the cost of microcement per square meter, it is necessary to take into account different external aspects such as how many meters you want to cover in total, how many professional applicators are needed to carry it out, in what state is the area to be covered and if it is necessary to repair it, etc. These variables are the ones that will determine the total price of an application with Luxury Concrete® in which luxury finishes are guaranteed.

Microcement or liquid porcelain tile: which is better?

Like microcement, liquid porcelain tile is also a material that is in great demand because of the qualities it offers, its excellent finish and its price. But which is better? The answer is simple: it depends on the finish you are looking for, the surface to be renovated and the execution process.

If we focus on the surface, while microcement can be applied on walls and floors and even furniture, liquid porcelain tile is only recommended for its viscosity on floors and other horizontal surfaces. As for the finish, there are also notable differences. The first is smooth and uniform and can range from matte to satin. The second, with a much more glossy and transparent appearance, can incorporate 3D elements and create very powerful visual effects.

Differences are also visible in the application process. Liquid porcelain tile is exclusively for interiors, as the epoxy resin it contains can yellow outdoors. It also requires the application of a self-leveling agent. The microcement on the other hand can be placed outdoors, and in fact it is done and much on facades, terrace pavements, swimming pools, etc.. We finish with the price. The cost of a liquid porcelain tile covering is much higher than that of microcement.

What is polished microcement?

Polished microcement as such does not exist. The correct name is polished cement. Two terms that are confused and a lot. Polished cement, which is also called polished concrete, is not a coating, but a decorative finish. Applicable only to interior floors, it is characterized by its luminous and shiny appearance resulting from the use of a rotary polisher that polishes the surface. It also requires expansion joints

What about smoothed microcement, what is it?

Smoothed microcement is another way of calling microcement. A material that incorporates the most advanced technology to replace the cement finish in a faster and more economical way.

A pigmented coating and formed by mixing cement powder, polymers, quartz and resins. The sum of its layers creates a thickness between 2 and 3 millimeters. It is applied without removing or removing the existing coating and without joints.

Which microcement to choose?

There are no better or worse microcements. There are only types of microcement more valid than others depending on the use and field of application. Trust an expert and let him advise you to avoid inconveniences in the future.

Is it necessary to use a mesh to apply microcement?

As a general rule, specialists recommend the use of a mesh when applying microcement, especially in the case of pavements. Although there are also cases of walls, such as tile walls, where it is also very convenient to use the mesh. The reason? For greater stability of the new substrate and to avoid stresses that can cause cracks to appear.

However it is not a mathematical rule, there are exceptions. There are some microcements for which the use of the mesh is not strictly mandatory. This is the case, for example, of our ready-to-use Easycret microcement, Concrete Pool for swimming pools or Concrete Pox epoxy. Always consult your expert.

Can microcement be applied outdoors?

Of course. Microcement resists UV rays, rain, high traffic and abrasive wear. Concrete Stone is our system par excellence for exteriors

Living room with beige microcement walls

Can microcement be applied over a parquet floor?

We recommend removing the parquet flooring as well as the wood as they are materials whose boards can undergo expansions and movements that could generate cracks in the microcement.

Most common problems with microcement

  • Not respecting the ambient and substrate temperature: excesses are never good, and the application of microcement is no exception. At too low temperatures, the coating can take a long time to reach the expected hardness and mechanical strength. And at too high temperatures, the opposite is true.
  • Not respecting the application process. Methods are there for a purpose: to comply with them. If the drying times are not respected, the primer used is not the correct one, the substrate is not well sealed and even if it is not repaired if it has imperfections prior to the application of microcement... problems will arise.
  • Cheap is expensive: microcement does not crack or crack, unless a poor quality product is used, the joints are not filled if applied for example on concrete or the substrate is in poor condition and is not repaired.
