This Kit offers a belt and braces solution for boarded or problem floors. It is your best chance at eliminating the transfer of movement in concrete floors (e.g. cracks that develop after microcement has been laid) and from movement in the joins between composite timber and cement boarded floors being transferred through from the substrate to the microcement. The chance of movement must still be eliminated in advance.
Aquasell will bond the High Performance Fibre Glass Mesh to your substrate adding strength to the substrate and creating a strong, impenetrable base for your microcement.
It will also ensure a uniform drying rate across the microcement surface and block stains in the sub-floor transferring through to you microcement.
Quartz sand is included in the kit. This will be used to “sand blind” the epoxy in order to give it a key.
You will find a step by step which is specific to this kit and an installation guide in your delivery.

With 40 colours to choose from, it’s worth taking some time to make sure you have chosen the right colour.
We’ve tried to represent the colour as accurately as possible by providing images of each colour and an image of it in situ. You can view large versions of the swatches and images on Colour Options. Please be aware, however that colours can vary quite dramatically from screen to screen. So to make sure you’ve found the right colour for your project, we’d highly recommend that you buy a Colour Swatch or Swatch Book so that you can see it for yourself.
It’s also a good idea to take it into the room and place it against the wall and floor to see how the colour is affected by the light in the room. As with paints, different lighting can give a very different impression of the colour.
All the products are made up in batches of 10m2. So we can give you a different colour for each 10m2 but we won’t be able to break them down any further than that. If you would more than 1 colour and can split them into 10m2, then just select one of the colours and leave us a note at the checkout to tell us which other colour you would like and how many m2 of each.
If you require more than one colour but not in 10m2 batches, then you can choose one of the colours for your kit and buy the second colour separately. You will then need to weigh the colours out for yourself – you can work out how much colour to weigh for each 1kg of product by dividing the no. grams colour per 10kg by 10. The no. grams per 10kg will be shown on the colour pigment bottle. It’s important that colours are weighed accurately using scales that go down to 0.01g, failure to do so will result in colour variation across batches.
To ensure the best price and freshest products, this kit is only available in 25m2 batches – we can’t offer different amounts at present. However you can by all the products individually so get in touch to discuss your specific needs.
Microcement is a cement-based render that can be applied to a wide range of surfaces to give a seamless, durable finish with an appearance that is similar to polished concrete. It is applied in four very thin coats giving a finished depth of just 3-4mm – and can be done by homeowners with the help of a DIY kit and some basic guidance.
It can be used to completely transform the look of existing surfaces (including plaster board, composite timber and painted walls) or as an alternative to tiles and other finishes across floors, walls, wet rooms or worktops. Because microcement is applied to surfaces in situ, it can be applied seamlessly without the need for joins or grout lines – making it easier to keep clean.
You’ll be reinforcing the base with AquaSell Epoxy and High Performance mesh, then scattering sand into the wet Aquasell to give it a key.
For a more detailed breakdown of the steps involved, please see the installation guide and step by steps:
We wouldn’t normally recommend that you use the High Performance Kits without some experience or training. Please get in touch to discuss your specific requirements and we will advise how we can help you transition into using these products.
You can microcement onto almost any surface as long as it is smooth and free from movement. You may need to prepare the surface for microcement before you start.
Some of the more common surfaces that you can microcement onto, are listed here:
Cement Board, Composite Timber Boards, Plaster Boards, Painted Walls, Plastered Walls, Concretes, Screeds, Self Leveller, Tiles, Plastics, Metals, Marble.
