Microcement Touch Up Kit
Follow the directions complete small repairs to microcement surfaces.
Microne is pre-mixed to the colour of your choice.
Standard consumption for AquaMax Pro Walls is 1l Comp A + 100ml Comp B for 2 coats over 10m2.
You will need a bi flex trowel, medium pile microfibre roller and tray plus a clean mixing bucket and measuring jug.
Prepare the Area
Remove any loose material and make sure the area that you are going to touch up is clean, dry and free from dust and debris.
Tidy up rough edges using a gentle sand paper (around 120 grit).
Mixing the Microne
This is pre-mixed with the colour in the tub, all you need to do is give it a mix before you start to loosen it.
To loosen the mix, mix thoroughly with a microcement mixer head attachment on a cordless drill. If it still feels stiff, you can add up to 10% water to loosen & mix further. That’s a maximum of 100ml per 1kg.
Let the mixture rest for a few minutes before applying.
Applying the Microne
Less is more when it comes to touching up microcement.
It will be very difficult to completely hide the imperfection and the colour match is unlikely to be exact because of the natural minerals in the products.
So rather than making the chip or crack dissappear, you are aiming to make it stand out less.
With this in mind, dab or scrape small amounts of product to conceal the crack or chip. Remove as much of the excess as you can with a scraper or trowel before leaving it to dry.
The microne may occasionally sink into the crack or chip when dry, if this happens, you can apply more coats until you are happy with the appearance.
Mixing AquaMax Pro Walls
Mix the AquaMax Pro Comp A with the AquaMax Pro Walls Comp B in a mixing jug and stir gently with a paint stirrer for at least a minute. Do not whisk as it will put too much air in the mix. Leave to rest for a couple of minutes before applying.
The mixing ratio is 10 x AquaMax Pro Comp A : 1 x AquaMax Pro Walls Comp B.
The mixture will last for 45 minutes once combined.
Applying the 1st Coat AquaMax Pro Walls
Use a medium pile roller to apply the AquaMax Pro evenly over any exposed microne.
Dont put any pressure on the roller and try to feather it out around the edges to avoid leaving roller marks in the surface.
Leave to Dry
Leave for at least 48 hours. Light use only for the first 14 days.
IMPORTANT: Like all cementitious products, microcement takes 28 days to full harden. It’s at it’s softest for the first 14 days after laying. During this time it should only be subjected to light use and light foot traffic.
Any heavy work is not recommended, but if it does take place then we recommend that you cover the floor with a breathable material or only cover down whilst working & lift the protection off for the majority of the time. The surface needs to dry out and harden. If airflow is restricted, it will stain & not cure correctly.
