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.
