Creative Ways to Use Microcement in Your Home

Microcement is a lightweight, high-performance concrete made with Portland cement, sodium silicate, silica sand and water. It has a low shrinkage rate, high compressive strength, and good resistance to alkali salts and weathering. 

The material can resist frost action up to -30°C (-22°F). Microcement can cover surfaces on all structures, whether for industrial uses or building construction. Our team here at Stucco have supplied microcement options for several years; during this time, we have become the number one supplier in the UK. 

If you would like to place an order, get in touch with one of our team members today, we are always more than happy to help. If you would like to find out more information on how you can use microcement in your home, continue reading! 


Lightweight

The material is lightweight and easy to handle. It can be laid easily using trowels or rollers because it does not require special equipment or workers' tools. In addition, it does not require any special mixing equipment for use as a rendering material; you simply need to add water.


Good performance

Microcement has good thermal conductivity properties that allow it to retain heat from the sun during the day but prevent it from escaping at night when the temperature drops below 0°C (32°F). This means that your building will not quickly lose heat overnight, even if there are no windows in your room.


Low cost

Microcement is much less expensive than traditional concrete. It costs only a fraction of the price of traditional concrete, and it can be used in situations where traditional concrete is not possible or practical. For example, it can be used in areas where there is not enough time to make a traditional mixture and pour the mixture into a form before it hardens. In addition, if you are building a temporary structure that will be removed at some point, microcement may be your best option because it will not require removal or maintenance after its use.


High strength

Microcement has excellent strength and quality. The strength is exceptionally high and can be used in indoor and outdoor construction projects. It can be used to make steel structures, bridges, roads, etc.


Good heat resistance

Microcement has high thermal stability and low thermal expansion coefficient, which will make it resistant to heat in different climatic conditions. It can resist high temperatures for a long time without cracking or breaking down under heat stress; it also has good corrosion resistance in a salty and acid environment.


High fire resistance

Microcement has high fire resistance property, it can resist fire for a long time without melting or breaking down due to the enormous specific gravity of microcement particles; if it falls into the fire, then there is no worry about being burned alive because of its large specific gravity!

Here are some creative ways you can use microcement in your home:


Concrete countertops

Use microcement as a way to create decorative countertops in your kitchen. The material looks stone and can be painted any colour you like so that it will stand out from the rest of your kitchen surfaces. It's also easy to clean after cooking because food doesn't stick as much as it does on other surfaces.


Window sills

If you have used off-the-shelf window sills before, you know how difficult it is to remove them when they have become scratched over time. Microcement provides an easy solution for covering scratches on interior windowsills without sacrificing their durability or strength.


Spray paint

Microcement can be used as an alternative to spraying paint, giving you the same results. Mix equal parts water, microcement and paint together and apply as usual with a brush or roller. You'll need about ten minutes for each coat and only need one coat per colour tone.


Wallpaper

If you don't want wallpaper but still want something colourful on your walls, try using microcement instead of regular wallpaper. The result will be similar but more in-depth than if you used standard wallpaper alone. You can apply this product exactly like regular wallpaper or mix it with regular wallpaper if desired!


Wall finish

You can use microcement to create a wall finish that will last for years. Wall cladding. If you have a large wall area that needs to be covered with something more substantial, try using microcement as your cladding material.


Flooring tiles

Microcement floor tiles come in many different colours and patterns, so you can choose the one that suits you best. They are easy to install and look great when finished!


Table tops and chairs' backs

If you have small children who like to eat at the table, give them something more substantial than plastic cutlery and plates! Use microcement table tops or chair backs instead of plastic ones for an added touch of style!


To preserve the moisture of your garden plants.

Take some microcement and mix it with water. Place the mixture on top of the soil to prevent it from drying.


To repel mosquitoes and flies.

Mix some microcement with water and spray it around your house or garden to repel mosquitoes and flies away from your house or garden area.
