What is non-slip exterior microcement?
Non-slip exterior microcement is a coating specially designed for surfaces that need water resistance and to face adverse climatic factors. An excellent example of this type of coating is the Cementec Water Resistant product.
The Water-Resistant range is ideal for those areas where water is in constant contact with the surface. For example, in interior spaces, it is applied to shower trays, built-in bathtubs and sinks integrated into countertops. Furthermore, this microcement is also designed with outdoor spaces in mind (such as outdoor terraces), since such areas frequently face humidity, rain and temperature fluctuations.
This, what distinguishes this product is its slightly rough aesthetics and uniform colour. This particular texture not only provides a unique visual appeal, but also provides non-slip properties, making this microcement a safe option for floors, avoiding possible slips and falls.
How durable is non-slip exterior microcement?
Accordingly, if you want to know how to maximize the durability of ready-to-use microcement and keep its properties intact over the years, it is essential to give it proper care.
Above all, the application of Finish Forte Plus varnish is a crucial and essential step in this process.

Likewise, its chemical robustness ensures that the coating is resistant to a variety of corrosive agents and substances that could compromise its integrity.
Therefore, with the right combination of products and proper maintenance, non-slip exterior microcement not only promises to be an attractive solution, but also stands as a long-term investment for your outdoor spaces.
