Advantages of ready to use microcement showers

The microcement is a continuous and decorative coating that adheres to different surfaces without the need to carry out works or generating debris and achieving high-quality aesthetic changes, in any type of interior housing renovation (bathrooms, kitchens, bedrooms, etc.), exteriors (facades, gardens, etc.) as well as in office areas or large surfaces.

Specifically, and going into depth, microcement is a smooth, polished, extremely durable and waterproof coating, which is available in a wide variety of colours, textures and finishes. Something that makes it the best option to cover a shower tray capable of adapting to any decorative style.

Next, we will tell you what are the main advantages of implementing a microcement shower tray in your home or business and the benefits that will lead you to opt for this material in your renovation.

Easy cleaning and with no bacteria Easy

Everything is easy! The surfaces covered with this material have a series of components that facilitate quick cleaning. Indeed, these continuous and smooth areas favour the non-accumulation of dirt, the non-appearance of humidity and, above all, the reduction in the probabilities of the appearance of bacteria.

However, the use of the Cementec Limp product is recommended when cleaning the coating, in order to avoid wear or stains.

Waterproof features

Wet areas? Nothing resists the ready-to-use microcement. Its resistance to wet areas or direct contact with water make it the material par excellence for covering showers.

Don’t worry if you are one of those who likes taking a nice hot shower and delight it for as long as it takes. Cementec Water Resistant finish incorporates extra protection for this type of surface, in the same way that it confers non-slip properties to the area.

Get ready, because your shower tray will be on another level.

Durability and resistance to hits of microcement shower

The bathroom, and especially the shower, is an area that is very prone to receiving impacts because on many occasions, we are wet due to the personal hygiene and we proceed to pick up any object. Don’t worry about it. The ready-to-use microcement is a very durable and resistant coating against external abrasions (as long as they are not with sharp or extremely heavy objects).

The durability of this material compared to others is due in part to its acrylic components, which give it a unique combination of hardness and elasticity. In addition, you can add Cementec Finish Forte Plus, a 100% waterproof high-solid polyurethane varnish that is resistant to many uses. Do it and you will get extraordinary results.

Versatility for floors and walls

Watch out! The best of all is that microcement as a decorative coating can be adhered to surfaces with different textures in the same way that it can be applied on walls or floors of your shower. Did you know that?

However, when it is applied on a shower tray, it is also recommended to do it on the adjoining walls, because in this way there is no possibility of leaks and a watertight area is achieved and prepared to withstand water without any problem.

Customization limitless

What if we told you that you could recreate the bathroom of your dreams by installing microcement showers, would you believe us? Customised your renovation according to your tastes, necessities and appreciations. Choose, as we have previously commented, between different textures and colours, and design a long-lasting bathroom.

However, after discussing on all these benefits, remember that, despite the fact that microcement is easy to apply, its installation is always recommended by professionals who know the subject or certified applicators.

They have the ability to achieve the desired finishes, the technique to achieve full adherence, as well as knowing the application process perfectly, make them even capable of reducing renovation times.
