Preparing Surfaces for Microcement
Surface preparation is key to the success or failure of any system that involves microcement.
Since the products are relatively new in the UK, it’ll be down to you to explain to clients and other contractors on site, with confidence, why you’ll need the prep work completed in a specific way. And if you’re doing the prep yourself, you’ll need to be confident in taking full responsibility.
This is why, we spend as much time as needed to get everyone up to speed on the surface prep required for each type of substrate that you might be going on to.
We’ll cover off concrete & anhydrite screeds, a number of composite boards on both floors and walls.
Plus, we’ll explain what to do if there are cracks or gaps in the substrates as well as some other common issues that you might face.
We’ll introduce you to our range of primers, demonstrate how to apply them and explain how to choose between them.
Once everyone is up to speed on the prep work, we’ll move on to talking you through the mirocement process. We’ll talk you through the step-by-step document that forms part of your information pack.
We’ll take you through the process of applying microcement one layer at a time using visual aids that make this easier to understand. We’ll explain how long you need to leave each layer to dry and what sanding papers to use between each coat.
Hands On Training
Whilst all of the above is absolutely essential, nothing compares
to getting stuck in and having a go for yourself. Which is why the majority of the course
involves you working with the products for yourself.
Each attendee is given a trowel, wall area and sample board that is
theirs for the day.
Applying Microcement Base Coats
You’ll start by applying MicroDur Base onto a wall of at least 2m2 so that you can start to get a feel for the
material. We’ll talk you through the
techniques and trowel movements that work best.
Applying Microcement Top Coats
We’ll then move onto the top coats, this is a very similar process,
but the materials are finer.
We’ll start with a sample board, which will be yours to take away
with you at the end of the day, before moving on to a full floor. We believe it’s crucial that you have a go on
a floor so that you get used to working and moving across a larger area. The instructors will be on hand to offer help
After lunch, we’ll spend a bit of time showing you how to achieve
some different textures with microcement and other products in the Cemher range including oxidising iron paint to create a real life corten effect on any wall.
Full Product Range
We’ll run through the full range of products, including MicroRock, the strongest microcement in the world.
After going over the
sample boards and floor one more time, we’ll move on to a quick demonstration
of the sealing process & products, which completes our day.
