Thermal conductivity

Thermal conductivity refers to a material’s ability to transfer heat efficiently. In the case of microcement, this property allows heat to be distributed evenly across the entire surface of the floor. When applied over radiant floor heating systems, microcement ensures that there are no cold spots or temperature inequalities in the room.

Microcement’s efficient heat transfer ensures uniform distribution across the floor surface, eliminating cold spots and temperature inconsistencies. This maximizes the heat generated by the system, leading to energy savings and reduced ecological impact.

Applying microcement in underfloor heating systems follows a straightforward process:

  1. Surface preparation: Ensure the surface is clean, dry, and free of dust, repairing any imperfections.
  2. Priming: Apply primer to enhance microcement adhesion and ensure a uniform surface.
  3. Microcement application: Evenly apply microcement using a trowel or spatula, following a consistent pattern.
  4. Drying and sanding: Allow proper drying, repeat application if needed, then sand to achieve a smooth surface.
  5. Sealing and protection: Apply sealant for surface protection, with additional coats for desired finishes.


In conclusion, ready-to-use microcement is an ideal choice for underfloor heating renovations, offering durability, energy efficiency, and environmental benefits.
