Impera Italia’s Advice™
If you sand the coats and apply this finish with a plastic trowel you can eliminate most of the movement and can actually achieve a microcement finish with no or little movement!
Béton ciré comes from French and can be translated as ‘waxed concrete’.
A: No, this finish is for features. For shower cubicles use our Micro cement wall kit.
Q: Can Beton Cire be put on floors?
A: No, this is not a coating that can endure walking on it, if you need a durable flooring solution then please see our page Microcement Floor and Wall kit.
Q: How durable is this finish? Can it be scratched?
A: Even though this coating is way more durable than most wall finishes on the market, it can be scratched by metal and sharp, hard objects.
Q: How accurate are your colours?
A: They were developed to show real, hand applied colours based on the most specified and liked colour selections from large manufacturers so they are extremely accurate.
Q: Do I really need to put on a primer or a protector?
A: Yes, make sure not to leave out any parts of the system.
Q: How can I re-do the wall?
A: Sand and prime it before applying a new paint or plaster.
Q: Do I need a specialist to apply your Beton Cire?

Q: What’s the shelf life of this plaster?
A: Two plus years.
