Why use CimentArt microcement?
Why Microcemento CimentArt?
The answer is easy and obvious and we do not say it, but the testimonies of satisfaction from thousands of people who have already used our product today. With more than 10 millions of square meters applied, CimentArt is present in the five continents, having delegations, representatives and works carried out in more than 35 countries at present. This growth has been due to two different factors: the quality of the products and the human team that makes up CimentArt. Without a product of great quality this growth would have been impossible and obviously without our technical, administrative and financial staff pushing all in the same direction we would not have achieved it. CimentArt is solely dedicated to the development, manufacture and distribution of microcements and micromorteros, which means that all our effort in R & D & I is focused on this type of products, which is reflected in a constant increase in the quality and variety of all our materials. Due to all this our company has been recognized with the seal of Innovative Pyme by the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness In summary, use CimentArt products It is a guarantee of beauty, quality and safety.
Yes, perfectly the microcement can be applied on floors with radiant heating.
In fact it is the best coatings that can be placed on a floor with radiant heating, since having a maximum thickness of 3 mm, it is perfect so that the floor does not lose calorific power.
A pavement of tiles, parquet or floating flooring can be more than 1 cm thick and obviously the radiant heating needs much more time and much more energy consumption to reach the desired temperature.
Once the installation of pipes for radiant heating has been done, it is usually covered with a minimum layer of 4 cms of cement mortar, a self-leveling mortar or a dry mortar.
Before pouring said mortars, it is necessary to install a perimeter expansion joint (it is necessary to have from 5 to 8 mm) on all the walls and door frames of the house, so that said mortars do not come into contact with Wall. The reason for this perimeter expansion joint is because when the radiant heating is turned on, the floor expands (almost 1 mm for each m2). If this board is not there, the pavement will be split safely.
It is also recommended to make a thin expansion joint under each door or in critical areas such as corridor encounters with rooms to prevent the floor from splitting in those areas.
Finally, before starting the application of the microcement you have to turn on the radiant heating and reach its maximum temperature for several hours and turn it off again. This operation has to be done for two or three days to see how the radiant floor behaves before applying microcement.
The microcement is not a complicated product to apply but it is a multilayer system and this is a very precise process when it comes to doing it.
Therefore we recommend that the application is always made by a professional who has done Microcemento training courses with us to be able to guarantee that your microcement will be correctly applied and to your satisfaction.

CimentArt Microcemento conducts training courses every week in its facilities for any individual or professional who wants to learn their application techniques. For more information about our training courses, click on this link.
We also have a ready-to-use microcement called iCem CimentArt, which is much easier to apply than the traditional microcement, since it does not need special tools nor is it necessary to make any type of mix, it is ready and ready to use.
iCem CimentArt is a perfect product for adventurous people who dare and want to make themselves the application, even if they are not professionals of the sector.
Yes, microcement is the perfect material to coat and / or reform a staircase.
The stairs are one of the most problematic elements to reform in a house since to remove all the old steps is a very laborious work and if it is overlaid with other ceramic material, marble or wood, there will always be a small and uncomfortable "step" in the upper floor with respect to the ground of the mezzanine.
Also, if you have some kind of wooden or metal railing, this makes it very difficult to coat it, whether the old coating is removed or not.
The microcement to have a maximum thickness of 2 to 3 millimeters is perfect for covering stairs and that meeting that is on the ground of the mezzanine, being so thin is practically imperceptible when stepping.
Stands like an old granite or marble are perfect supports to apply microcement, since they are very hard and have a corner that will not deform or break with the passage of time.
If the application is made in a new construction we recommend always placing hidden metal corners for greater durability and avoiding that the corners of the base where the microcement has been applied can be split with time (normally the tread of that type of stairs in work new is made with bricks and plastered with cement mortar or concrete steps are plastered with cement mortar). In these cases it is always recommended to place these hidden corners to get a better finish and durability of the corner on the step.
In all cases, we recommend that the edge of the step never be at an angle of 90 ° and that the edges should be slightly rounded.
Perfectly any of the CimentArt products can be applied outdoors, both on walls, ceilings and floors.
The exception is pavements in areas with very low temperatures, in winter and especially where snow can be stored for several days (for example terraces that are outdoors and do not have any type of roof or roof) we do not recommend it for two reasons: supports where the microcement is applied, with those changes of temperature dilate and contract a lot and can get to fracture and notice that crack in the microcement and the second reason is because it can be affected and even damaged the final layer of protection of polyurethane varnish , if it is for several days under snow or water.
Yes, perfectly for its high degree of adherence on any support and its fine finish, you can use the CimentArt micro-cement to cover furniture, washbasins, tables, kitchen countertops and any piece or object that the client wishes.
Yes, the CimenArt micro-cement is a decorative and durable material. It is a very aesthetic material and of great beauty.
The microcement is very easy to maintain and has a wide range of colors and finishes.
The tiles and the tiles of the pavements, when having joints, these together with time get dirty, blacken and it is a focus of molds and bacteria.
The CimentArt microcement, being a continuous and without joints, does not have these problems and is a product of very easy cleaning and does not require any special maintenance.
The CimentArt micro-cement can be cleaned with any chemical product that is normally used in a home.
We recommend soap and non-aggressive products for cleaning the micro-cement, such as those used to clean a wood or marble floor. For a very stained floor you can use some detergent with degreaser.
We recommend the use of acrylics from time to time as they help to maintain microcement pavements.
We do not recommend aggressive products such as acids, solvents, etc.
It is not necessary, the microcement is a thin decorative coating that
applied on walls and floors and therefore it is not necessary to ask for a gun
type of work permit or license.
The microcement is always finished with a protective layer called polyurethane varnish.
There are two different types of polyurethane varnish on the market: made with water base and with solvent bases.
Cimentart only uses water-based polyurethane varnish in its systems, for different reasons:
- it slides much less if it is wet or has water than solvent-based polyurethane.
- Leaves more layer (has more thickness than solvent based polyurethane) and therefore has greater covering power and protection.
- it does not release vapors and gases that are so annoying and harmful to the environment and to the applicator and his final client.
- it is easier to transport it since it is not a flammable material, the solvent based polyurethane is.
Currently the most commonly sold materials for example for shower areas are porcelain showers or enameled bathtubs. These are very smooth materials that slide a lot and need some non-slip plastic "carpet" or similar materials.
The water-based bi-component polyurethane used by CimentArt for the finishing of its flooring slides much less than any shower or bathtub that is currently sold on the market.
Anyway, we have Anti-Slip Microspheres. This product is a very fine mineral and crystal powder that added to the polyurethane varnish CimentArt creates anti-slip pavements and with it will get a C3 certificate, which is the maximum in the slip certificate.
Cimentart Microcement puts at your disposal for those who request this certificate by clicking on the following link.
The microcement is a high decoration coating. Its purpose is to create a continuous lining without joints and decorate in turn.
Each material has its precise use and like no one would place asphalt on the floor of your bathroom, we do not recommend the application of microcement in industrial buildings, parking lots, shopping centers, roads, etc., since they are areas with a large traffic of cars, heavy machinery and where pallets move that can hit and scratch the microcement.
For these areas there are own materials for this, such as epoxy, polished cement, asphalt, etc.
The micro cement is perfect for interiors of homes, shops, offices, etc.
If you want more information you can click on the following link microcemento technical sheets.
The microcemento is ideal for making quick reforms, practically without dust and without debris, since one of its main characteristics is that it can be applied on any support.
We give some examples:
If you want to reform the walls of your kitchen or bathroom because the tiles went out of style, you can apply microcement on them without having to remove them and have to remove all the rubble.
Another example would be if you are tired of your old floor but do not dare to go into work, since normally the new floor is placed on top of the existing one and you have to remove all the skirting board of the house and cut all the doors of your home , with the microcement does not have that problem since it only has a thickness of 2 to 3 mm and you can even cover the existing skirting.
Another very common use of microcement reform is in your kitchen counter, changing it is very expensive, especially if you decide to place granite, Italian or Brazilian marble or some material such as Silestone or Corian. With microcemento you can coat your old countertop without needing to change it.
One more serious example is the typical reform of removing the bathtub and building a shower tray, but you do not want to reform the entire bathroom, you just want to change that area of the shower. The microcemento is perfect for that, and since there is a great variety of colors, you will find the most similar or favorite tone for that area and you will not need to change all the tiles in the bathroom or the floor if you do not want to.
Yes, we have a product called CimentArt Solid Color for it.
A CimentArt micro cement wall is for life. When painting a wall with paint normally every two to five years at the most you have to repaint it because it is chipped dirty or worn.
The CimentArt micro-cement is a completely waterproof product which allows you to even scrub the walls with scouring pads and soap and to have the walls always as the first day.
Of course we know that the paint is a cheaper product than the microcement but it is not eternal and unlike the microcement will give a much longer result over time and without any maintenance.
If you do not like the effect of stains or marbling of the traditional microcement on the wall use CimentArt Solid Color, which is a coating without any stain and with a completely uniform color like paint, but which, as we have said before, You can clean it whenever you want with any chemical product normally used in a home and it does not have any kind of maintenance so it makes it a product for life.
CimentArt, with its extensive range of products, offers different finishes so that any client can choose depending on the home and personal tastes a finish and custom color according to their preferences.
If you want a completely smooth finish with marmoreal effects, choose the micro cement cimentart. It has 35 different colors.
If you want a more rustic effect or more like a cement that does not have such a fine finish, choose Cimentart Rústic. We also have in this 35 product colors to choose the most suitable for you.
If you prefer a cement finish but with fewer stains or marbles than the traditional microcement you can choose cimentart Nature, also available in 35 colors.
If on the contrary you would like to have a coating that imitates a natural stone without joints your product is Cimentart Stone. This product is also available with 35 colors.
If you do not like stains or marbled and prefer a completely smooth and uniform color you can decant by Solid Color CimentArt. We have this product available for you in more than 1000 colors.
If you want to have a completely different wall or floor, we have highly decorative effects such as natural oxide or 12 different metallics.
If you are not a professional and you would still like to apply microcement in your home we have Microcemento ready to use, where you do not have to make any type of mixture and are very easy to apply. The name of this product is iCem Quartz CimentArt and with this product you can make very aesthetic applications with effects and "stains" similar to traditional microcement and is available in 12 colors.
In the range of ready to use we also have the iCem Miroconcrete, a finish with fewer stains or marbles than the iCem Quartz, also available in 12 colors.
All our products can be finished with a gloss, matt or satin finish, both indoors and outdoors.
We are at your disposal to advise you on which product / s and color / s are most suited to your home.
Of course you can apply microcement on a kitchen counter, the important thing is that the base, if you use wood or DMF as support for the microcement are completely waterproof. Also if you use more than 1 boards (because the length of the countertop is too long) it will exist and a joint between them. This union or board of the two boards can not have any kind of movement between them.
You can also use as a support marble, stone or granite or a countertop built with bricks and cement.
Once finished the microcement coating on the countertop, the only precautions that should be are the same as it would have on a wooden worktop: do not support a hot pot or pan and do not cut food with a knife directly on the microcement.
For more information you can write an email and attach photographs firstname.lastname@example.org we will be happy to advise you.
The microcement and Venetian stucco are products that have their similarities when viewed from a distance, but really are very different between them.
Venetian stucco is a product made from putty (calcium carbonate) and mixed with water. And because of the hardness of this material, it is only applied to walls, it can never be applied on pavements. Venetian stucco is not an ideal product to apply in kitchens, bathrooms, showers or outdoors; because it is not waterproof.
Microcement is a product that due to its hardness (is composed of cement and selected minerals and mixed with resin, not water) can be applied both in walls and floors and in areas that receive water such as bathrooms, kitchens and outdoor terraces. This makes them very different products that can not be compared.
The polished cement is a layer of 4 to 8 centimeters of cement and sand that are normally placed in shopping malls and parking lots. If this mixture of cement and sand is added, the record becomes polished concrete. Once the application is completed, a device called a helicopter is used to completely smoothen the layer of cement. Once dry, cuts are made every X square meters to make an expansion joint and prevent the cement or polished concrete from splitting. Due to its thickness and complexity, it is not an ideal product for the interior of homes.
The microcement is a decorative coating that is applied on any support and has a maximum thickness of 3 mm. It does not need any type of joints since the microcement never fissures due to its formulation. Due to its low thickness and its ease of application, it makes it an ideal product for the interior of homes, offices, shops, etc.
CARE OF THE APPLIED APPLIED MICROCEMENTO:
The possible danger of scratching, loss of brightness of the Microcemento flooring always occurs in its first weeks. A floor, already hardened to 100%, has superior mechanical qualities that allow it to maintain an unbeatable appearance over time. Our cementitious pavements require around 4 weeks to achieve maximum hardness.
A newly finished micro cement pavement should not be stepped on in 3 days. It is vital to place protectors on the legs or supports of furniture, chairs or tables. Totally avoid the dragging of furniture or appliances on a Microcemento pavement.
In the first 48 hours these pavements reach an approximate half of their resistance. The cold, with temperatures below 10ºC can paralyze or slow down the hardening process
CARE OF THE FIRST 72 HOURS
Maintain the temperature of the rooms between 17ºC to 25ºC. It is also not recommended to rise above this temperature.
Do not step on the pavement or perform work in the treated premises.
Totally avoid leaks, spills of liquids and humidity in this period. The moisture and water whiten the polyurethane resins when it is not completely dry (the polyurethane varnish needs 10 days to expel all its internal moisture and reach its maximum hardness).
Do not wash, wet, clean or attack the pavement under any circumstances.
Do not protect the pavement with cardboard or paper.
CARE BEFORE THE 10 DAYS OF THE APPLICATION OF THE LAST LAYER OF BI-COMPONENT POLYURETHANE
Do not carry out painting, construction or similar works in the treated premises. If they are done, completely protect the floor with double cardboard and never use ladders without leg protections.
Clean only with water and without mechanical abrasive efforts or detergents of any kind. In cases of cleaning, do not leave puddles of water accumulated.
In no case can paint, glue or liquids fall, as they can be amalgamated with our polyurethane and it will be almost impossible to clean them later.
Avoid hitting or falling objects on the pavement.
Use the pavement carefully.
Do not use acids or bases to clean the floor, only neutral detergents (similar to those used for marbles or wooden floors) and rinse well.
CARE FROM THE FIRST MONTH
It is recommended to apply an acrylic wax every month to help protect it.
Always avoid contact with strong solvents, turpentine, salfumant or any type of acids or corrosive products.
In the case of loss of gloss due to use in smooth floors, a cleaning and polishing operation can be carried out consisting of: vigorous cleaning with specific descaler and rotary polishing machines (with a polishing sponge disk), rinsing and application of a wax acrylic
In the case of kitchen countertops, do not place pots or hot pans on the Microcemento. Always place protectors on legs or furniture supports, chairs or tables. Totally avoid the dragging of furniture or appliances on a Microcemento pavement.
- base microcement: it serves for the regularization of supports and coverings of joints in pavements and tiles and as a preparation for the subsequent application of fine microcement.
- Two-component polyurethane: it is the final protector. With its application you will achieve that Microcement coatings are completely waterproof. It is also responsible for the fact that any cleaning product normally used in a home can be used in the microcement and finally this product is responsible for the final finish that the client has chosen: gloss, satin or matt.
For more information you can consult the technical specifications and application methods by clicking on the following link
Microcement application system since it is not a single product but an application system. Which is composed of a set of products that have to be applied in an order to obtain the best result.
The microcement application system are the following steps:
- Union bridge
- Fiberglass mesh.
- Base microcement: two layers (in some cases a third layer is necessary)
- Fine microcement: two layers.
- Sealer: one layer.
- Bi-component polyurethane: two layers
In areas with direct contact with water, such as: showers, outdoor terraces, toilets, kitchen or bathroom countertops, etc. an extra layer of sealant and bi-component polyurethane is recommended.
The CimentArt micro-cement and all its system must be applied on temperatures of minimum 5 ° up to a maximum of 30 °.
Lower or higher temperatures will result in a very expensive application and incorrect drying of the products and both the final result and its durability will not be adequate.
It is also not recommended to apply the microcement system with strong direct sunlight or large air currents, as this will accelerate drying time and make application difficult.

Do you have capillary moisture and want to apply microcemento?
Do you have capillary moisture? Microcement should never be applied to substrates that have capillary moisture, since it is finished with a polyurethane varnish that makes it waterproof, but also non-breathable.
If the micro-cement is applied on cement or gypsum supports that have this problem, darker spots may appear due to that rising humidity and with time that the micro-cement deteriorates.
If you apply microcement on walls covered with tiles or pavements with ceramic tiles that have capillary moisture, over time the joints can be marked on these tiles.
Our advice if you want to make a CimentArt microcement application and have this problem on the floor or on the walls is that previously apply CimentArt Dry with a minimum thickness of half a centimeter. CimentArt Dry is a waterproofing mortar that is used to cut capillary moisture and also for the plastering of water tanks or planters. After the application of Cimentart Dry the application of the microcement can begin and that humidity by capillarity does not pass through.
We know of some cases of some applicators that on pavements with tiles that had capillary moisture, first they covered or well filled all the joints between tiles and then applied two layers of two-component epoxy and that helped to stop the rising humidity and once completely dry These layers applied our microcement following our work methods with good results.
If you need technical assistance, Contact our technical support.
The microcement crack? Because of its composition, it does not crack by itself in any case.
If a crack appears on the microcement it is because the support where it has been applied to cracking and this crack has a thickness normally of half a millimeter minimum.
The small micro fissures that can appear in a plaster or in a cement plaster perfectly the CimentArt microcement supports them and they are not visible.
That is why it is very important that the support where the microcement is applied is strong and healthy, does not have detached or crumbling parts, badly placed tiles or paintings in poor condition, since that can give a false appearance that the microcement crack, when it is not like that in any case and it is always the support that cracks.
The support where microcement is applied, whether absorbent or non-absorbent, whether in a new construction or in renovation, must be in perfect condition, dry, hard, without movement or expansion and without parts that are detached or damaged.
On a plaster of cement, concrete or plaster should have been at least three weeks before the application of microcement, so that the support has set and completely expelled its internal moisture.
If you are going to apply microcemento on tiles or ceramic tiles, you must be completely glued. If when touching them it sounds hollow they must be removed and apply the microcement on the support below. If any tile is badly placed, it must be removed and filled with cement mortar.
If you are applying microcement on paint, it must be perfect in perfect condition, without chipping or easily removed parts.
If the microcement is to be applied there is capillary moisture, this has to be previously treated with the CimentArt Dry waterproofing mortar. For more information on this product see here.
For any doubt or clarification or query do not hesitate to call us by phone or send us an email email@example.com
Where can the microcement be applied?The microcement It can be applied on any support or surface that is normally used in the construction of houses, either indoors or outdoors.
Examples of absorbent supports where microcement can be applied:
- Cement plaster
- Monolayer of facades.
Examples of non-absorbent substrates or those with low degree of absorption where microcement can be applied:
- Glazed stoneware
- Clay pottery
- Porcelain stoneware
Microcemento serves for any support?
Yes, however, it is thanks to the application of a primer layer that is key to getting a good microcement job:
- Leaves a more aesthetic finish
- It is much more durable
- It ensures and guarantees that it does not detach from the support.
- Facilitate the application
The union bridge helps the microcement to adhere more easily.

What is the microcemento?
What is needed when applying microcement?
A microcement reform, many things are not necessary.
Union Bridge - Fiberglass mesh - Microcement Base - Fine Microcement - Mixing Resin - Sealant - Polyurethane (Matte, Satin and Gloss).
Bodybuilder tape - Sandpaper from 40 to 60 (for microcement base) - Sandpaper from 140 to 200 (for fine microcement) - Sander - Blender - Flat steel - Spatula - Short hair rollers - Vacuum cleaner.
What does microcemento mean?
The Microcemento, is not a single product, but a type of finish. It is a decorative coating without joints, applicable on any surface and waterproof.
Regarding the field of application, it is very large, because for its performance of impermeability, hardness, non-cracking, etc., and its minimum thickness, it can be applied on any surface (floor, walls, shower trays, countertops ...) and support (terrazzo, marble, plaster, cement, wood, tile, etc.) both indoors and outdoors.
Today there is a large number of specialized professional applicators, so specialists with the necessary training will have a broad market.
To obtain qualified professionals in the application of Microcemento, Due to the current demand in the current market and the growth rate, CimentArt Group conducts free and professional courses, regularly in its facilities in El Campello (Alicante) and in our different Delegations.
