Why bet on microcement for outdoors.

It is a product designed for those areas where out of our control conditions can cause more impact or damage to the coatings, as its high mechanical performance makes it one of the best microcements. Rain and heat do not affect microcement too much, as well as cold or unstable weather. Logically, the 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 areas. This does not mean that it is a totally waterproof product (in case of humidity, a waterproofing product must always be applied beforehand). But 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 to withstand impacts, scratches, footwear and the action of chemical products (as long as we are talking about normal and domestic use). The exterior microcement floor is also non-slip, to achieve total safety in any area where there is a risk of slipping. You can also choose it during the time of work, because some glass microspheres must be added to provide this non-slip property, 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 without hardly noticing any visual change in the coating, but in touch, logically. It is durable, because as the years go by, it is enriched naturally. This results in a progressive strengthening of the surface. On the other hand, as it is protected with Finish Forte Plus, a high-solid content polyurethane varnish, it is guarantee for maximum efficiency and practicality. This finish is prepared to withstand and neutralize the stains, avoiding its mark and thus keeping the microcement in the best conditions.
