Microcement quickly became very popular, with its uses in most areas like kitchen, bathroom, living room, foyer, basement or swimming pool, it beats tiles or other traditional products. We receive quite a lot of enquires, about kitchen worktops covered with microcement. Mainly customers want to know, whether it is safe, fire retardant or hygienic. Yes it is. It also looks exceptionally good in contemporary kitchen. No special maintenance is required, as oppose to wooden worktops, which require constant oiling etc.
Microcement is surprisingly tough, it's flexibility allows for absorbing most impacts. When tiles break and granite worktop cracks, microcement worktop is usually still standing, usually - because it has to be installed absolutely correct. No layer should be omitted, depending on used system it would be from 6 different layers up to 10 layers - where for example 3 coats of microcement base is needed. Applying microcement is a labour intensive and time consuming task, so it is very important not to abandon any of the steps and layers. Each layer is as important as the whole system.
