Microcement Worktop Kit with Anticrack

With the 10 square metre microcement worktop kit -which is a combined, high-quality multi-layer coating system– you can now a harder, more durable finish worktop surfaces. Our microcement is arguably the easiest to apply on the UK market, with an amazing cost/value ratio, that includes more material than any other similar system to make sure you have ample microcement to create a durable, waterproof and heatproof finish for worktops!

Our microcement worktop kit comes with the newly developed TOP ART, which is a harder coating designed to protect the surface against heat, making it perfect for kitchen worktops and splashbacks.  You won’t need to worry about maintenance as the resin will ensure that water will not penetrate and the coating will last.

If you’d like to see real, hand applied sample boards, check out our Microcement Mood Board Set, showing the stunning contemporary colours from our ‘Colours of Britain’ range.

Alternatively, for wall and floor kits see our our Micro Cement Wall and Floor Kit or to achieve the look only see Beton Cire Kit pages.

Microcement Colours

If you choose our microcement pack you can select from 19 colours which can be further modified and personalised to provide you with a wide aray of natural shades (for details contact our sales team). These microcement colours were developed in London and are based on the most requested and popular contemporary colours.

Unlike any other provider, the colours presented on our site are as close to the real ones as possible and show the look of the real finish.

Tools for Microcement

To create an outstanding look with our microcement kit you will need a plastic trowel and a Venetian plastering trowel.

With this microcement kit you’ll have a lightweight worktop solution on 2 to 3mm. You can further customise this system with satin or matt protectors, applied by roller, to create a long-lasting finish.

Why Use Microcement

The distinctive advantages of our microcement system:

  • You will purchase from the most established UK retailer of specialist finishes, based in London. This is not a cheap direct export product missing key components.
  • You will have the state-of-the-art, durable and easy to apply coating that lasts
  • You’ll have a FULL BUCKET of ready-mixed top (decorative) coat for every 10 msq with colourants already added (no measuring is needed, colour accuracy is high), with a very long shelf life
  • You’ll use an Industrial-level system from the largest specialist producer in Italy
  • You can complete projects in only three days
  • You can apply it on top of underfloor heating, cover furniture and create durable and waterproof bathroom finshes

Finally, beside enhancing modern homes and business environments with microcement finishes you can also renovate existing surfaces like ceramic surfaces, porcelain tiles, mosaic, natural and reconstructed stone, linoleum, parquet and other coatings like epoxy or polyurethane resins, just to name a few.

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!

 

Trivia

Microcement products derive their strength not only from the nature of the mineral-, micronised cement base and their compactness, but also from the reinforcing effect of the resins.
