Key aspects of Microtopping
Microtopping is suitable for renovations or new-builds and, with a thickness of only 2mm, Microtopping® is often the only practical solution for existing floors or situations requiring underfloor heating. Its slip-resistance properties make it suitable for wet areas such as bathrooms and it is commonly used as an elegant alternative to tiles whether walls or floors. Resistant to impact and abrasion, it suitable for heavy traffic uses including retail spaces, restaurants, walkways and stairs.
You will be working with water-based polymers which are entirely free from volatile organic compounds (VOC), mixed together with cement-based components. The processes include a Microtopping® Base Coat (which contains larger granules for strength and for creating different aesthetics), followed by a choice of two versions of the Microtopping® Finish Coat containing finer particules for a semi-smooth or perfectly smooth finish. Sealed with one of our Ideal Work high quality sealers, the result is a protective, highly resistant material, providing an easy-to-maintain, seamless surface. Your professional expertise will be required to assess the number of coats for each process, based on the desired aesthetic and the intended use. We will always be on hand to help you with these choices.
