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.
Our epoxy primer, with high solids content, ImpriPox 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.

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.
