RESISTONE MICROCEMENT APPLICATION PROCESS
The application process depends on the chosen system and the characteristics and status of the support. For this reason, we have systems from 2 layers to 9 layers.
According to these variables we will define the application process that provides a solid and at the same time elastic base. In addition, this base will prevent the transmission of cracks to the microcement. To do this, we will apply fiber mesh or elastic mortars. In this way, we manage to separate the support from the microcement, and provide the system with dimensional stability.
In cases where it is necessary to improve the planimetry of the base of the industrial floor, we will apply self-leveling mortars.
The microcement works are carried out at the end of the work. Before or after painting, and before or after kickboard installation.
The traditional microcement application process consists of:
- First: Surface preparation.
The surface must be clean, dry and free of contaminants, and must not have moving elements such as loose tiles.
- Second place: Application of primer or bonding bridge and fiberglass mesh.
On plaster, wood, concrete and mortar, a bonding bridge will be applied. In the case of stoneware, porcelain, marble and stone, a primer will be applied.
In turn, on floors we apply a fiberglass mesh.
- Third place: Installation of thick microcement (1-2 layers)
Two layers of thick microcement will be applied. In supports with compromised stability, a fiberglass mesh will be applied with the first layer of microcement.
- Fourth place: Application of fine Microcement (2 layers).
Layers of fine microcement will be applied to the surface. In addition to sanding and vacuuming between layers.
- Fifth place: Sealant application (2-3 coats)
On floors, the maximum resistance two-component polyurethane sealant will be applied to the surface.
- Finally: Release to transit
The surface can be gently stepped on the day after the application of the last coat. However, to support heavy furniture, you should wait 1 week in summer and 2 weeks in winter.
Finally, the maximum hardness will be reached after 28 days.
The impermeability of the finishing varnishes allows the use in humid areas. In addition, Resistone®, due to its low absorption, resists even moderate rising humidity by capillarity, without changing its appearance. Resistone Aqua is the version for swimming pools and exterior floors with total waterproofing in the mass, before the sealing layers.
