Everything you need to know about microcement in exteriors
In addition, its application is not limited to spaces that combine interior and exterior, but its application radius is very varied, with applications also being made on facades, patios, areas around pools, or wherever it is intended to provide a special touch.
Our Cementec Ready-to-Use product line offers a special system for these outdoor areas, due to its waterproof properties and its high durability, thereby allowing a covering of high technical and aesthetic qualities to be enjoyed for a long time.
Advantages of microcement for outdoors.
Cementec Ready to Use microcement for outdoors is designed to provide decoration and design, as well as functionality and practicality.
Its low thickness makes it ideal for application without raising the existing support too much, and its waterproof properties make it highly recommended for areas where it may always be in contact with water.
In addition, by eliminating joins, we obtain a much cleaner and more practical covering, because the dirt affects outdoor areas much more, and a totally clean area is never enjoyed.
Why choose microcement for outdoors
It is highly resistant to traffic due to its impressive durability and surface hardness offered by the Cementec Ready to Use High Transit product. It is a product designed for areas where external conditions out of our control can cause more impact or damage to the coverings, as its high mechanical performance makes it one of the best microcements.
Rain and heat do not affect microcement too much, and nor do cold or unstable weather. Logically, durability in an exterior is somewhat less than the application in interiors, because the environmental impact is much more invasive, but the high resistance provides it the features required to keep its essence and elegance for a long time.
Microcement has waterproof properties, something very important for this type of area. This does not mean that it is a totally waterproof product (in case of humidity, a waterproofing product must always be applied beforehand). However, unlike many other microcements, its waterproof components ensure that it does not deteriorate due to water or other liquid products.
Therefore, Cementec High Transit is very resistant and durable, withstanding impacts, scratches, wear from use and the action of chemical products (as long as these are normal and domestic products).
The exterior microcement floor is also non-slip, to achieve total safety in any area where there is a risk of slipping. This option can also be chosen when work is carried out, because some glass microspheres must be added to provide this non-slip property, it being previously assessed whether or not this product is applied, depending on the use and where it is applied.
Its peculiarity is that the desired anti-slip level (C1, C2 or C3) is achieved with barely any noticeable visual change in the covering, but of course being different to the touch.
It is durable, because as the years go by, it is enriched naturally. This results in a progressive strengthening of the surface.
Additionally, as it is protected with Finish Forte Plus, a high-solid content polyurethane varnish, its maximum efficiency and practicality are guaranteed. This finish is prepared to withstand and neutralise stains, avoiding penetration and thus keeping the microcement in the best condition.
Therefore, Cementec High Transit is a very resistant and durable product for withstanding impacts, scratches, wear from use and the action of chemical products.
