1. Design versatility

Microtopping is as versatile as it is beautiful. Your imagination is the only limit as Microtopping offers a multitude of colours, textures and infinite designs. A selection of sealers provide slip and chemical resistance, easy maintenance, a variation of gloss levels, protection, and many other multipurpose uses.

2. Natural ingredients

Microtopping is made with natural ingredients. Liquid polymer and a special cement mixture are blended manually by a craftsperson to reflect the final outcome that the work requires. It is applied with a thickness of only 3mm, with different finishes that range from smooth and sleek to rustic and anti-slip. Microtopping is an innovative material, and the result is a protective and strong surface offering a wide variety of possible aesthetic characteristics.

3. Easy maintenance and cleaning

The maintenance of Microtopping in the first few days of application is essential to ensure the perfect finish, especially during the first month. In the first week, it is recommended to protect it as much as possible, taking care especially when moving pieces of furniture and avoid spilling liquids because the pours of the Microtopping have not yet closed. P Mac can help you with more information on how to take care of your new floor, so don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you drop anything or if there’s a stain on the surface!

In the long term, Microtopping maintenance is similar to a wooden floor. The floor can be cleaned with a mop and water without soap or detergents during the first month of application. After the first month, washing with water and neutral detergent is highly recommended.

4. Change colours anytime

A good advantage of Microtopping is that you can change colours, just sand and re-apply Microtopping and the surface is renewed. This provides a great opportunity for those who like to change colour schemes. In general, the colours used have high resistance to UV rays and the protective treatments are not subject to change over time. Microtopping is not prone to yellowing. However, as with all types of materials, after years of constant exposure to light or the elements it may show some slight fading.

5. Continuity

One of the greatest advantages of Microtopping is that it can be applied without a limit or joints. It can cover any type of surface due to its remarkable adhesive properties; even household objects can be covered with Microtopping. You’re limited only by your imagination. Delivering a blank canvas for decorative surfaces, Microtopping can transform or remodel almost any bases into a concrete masterpiece.

6. Unique application

Microtopping demands special knowledge and craftsmanship. There are numerous technical aspects to be taken into consideration that our craftspeople are taught through many hours of training.

7. It is bathroom friendly

As Microtopping provides good protection against water penetration, it is suitable for bathrooms, shower cubicles, bathtubs, etc. Even the sink can be covered because Microtopping has sufficient adhesion and it adjusts to the shape of the support. Of course, for the restoration of existing surfaces, an appropriate assessment needs to be carried out by a specialist in order to make sure that the surface is adequate for Microtopping.

8. Microtopping use in furniture

Microtopping accents furniture beautifully. You can coat a fireplace, a kitchen top, or even a bench outside as Microtopping is waterproof.

9. High resistance

Microtopping has great resistance to various stresses, similar to a top of the range wooden floor. Tests have shown the high level of resistance Microtopping has, for example, it has been heated to a temperature of 115 C without displaying any defects. It can be used in kitchen tops; however, it is recommended to use a suitable chopping board to avoid cutting or chopping directly on to the surface. It is also inadvisable to lay boiling objects on the surface. Instead, suitable heat resistant maps should be placed on the surface.

Microtopping has endured many rigorous laboratory tests to examine its performance. The resistance of Microtopping has been tested with mechanics, impact, wear, fire, cracking as well as corrosive matter. The outcome is that Microtopping has a significantly superior resistance compared to typical floor resin.

10. Interior and exterior

The use of Microtopping is not limited to the interior. Microtopping is an extremely durable and hard material. In environments where Microtopping is exposed to atmospheric agents, Microtopping delays the penetration of water and de-icing salts, as well as being resistant to UV rays and bad weather conditions. Consequently, the floor maintains a stable level of humidity so that the concrete doesn’t dry out and it conserves its characteristic strength for longer. Microtopping is ideal for external applications such as footpaths, walls and terraces. It can also be used in car parks, driveways and construction access ramps due to its high resistance to abrasion. A special coat is applied to ensure it is slip-resistant.

11. Environmentally friendly

Practical and innovative, it is also environmentally friendly and respects the modern requirements for adaptability, transformation and modification. Throughout its installation, it helps to reduce to a minimum any dust, plaster flakes, rubble and clutter compared to other flooring materials.

Microtopping is an ideal restoration solution for interiors and exteriors. It can stand out as the main attraction in contemporary design while also complementing a more rustic or vintage environment.
