mcs floors and walls
it is a perfect solution both for new and old objects, giving great possibilities for applications in creating new floors or decorating walls. The material gives the opportunity to renew old, damaged surfaces without expensive and rather arduous renovation work. After applying to the surface, it gives the effect of slightly rustic, raw architectural concrete with the possibility of shaping any texture and color.
recommended especially for surfaces in contact with water, ie for sinks, shower trays, fountains, swimming pools, elements of small and medium garden architecture, floor panels or elements of concrete accessories. It is a coating ideal for finishing shower enclosures, shower trays, swimming pools and everywhere where the elements are exposed to the constant water.
examples of applications
The MCS microcement can be purchased in white – and dye it with the desired shade yourself, or you can order a ready shade or color. MCS is the only microcement on the market that always guarantees the same shade of the ordered color. Our ready-to-use masses are prepared with machine precision, so that always the same amount of dye goes to the product, and is always perfectly stirred. Forget about uneven shades when you have to mix the microcement with many components, use the only ready-made MCS masses on the market.
The microcement allows for dyeing in mass after pigmentation with black or graphite dye. Thanks to this solution, individual shades are obtained by the appropriate dosage of pigment. Therefore, you can strengthen the color yourself, but then we can not guarantee the same shade on the entire surface.
In addition to shades of concrete, we also offer MCS microcement in standard colors below. In addition to the colors given, we can prepare a different color for individual orders. In order to check whether the chosen shade can be obtained, please contact us.

It is not necessary to use heavy construction equipment to make a microcement coating. However, you must prepare the basic tools necessary for the correct application. They are: oscillating or eccentric sander, and in the case of floors – polishers (so-called scrubbers) for floors. The industrial vacuum cleaner is very useful. You should also remember about basic tools, such as steel trowels, stucco rolls, etc.
However, the tools are not everything. Experience is also important. In this case, the bigger it is, the more interesting effects you can get.
A very important element in the application of the system is the proper preparation of the substrate. We must remember that the final microcement layer usually does not exceed 3 mm, therefore it is impossible to eliminate the wrong preparation of the substrate. All cracks, defects, etc. must be removed beforehand in such a way that the substrate is perfectly even. Proper preparation of the substrate is an equally important element of the system – almost as important as the microcement layer.
PREPARATION OF THE SUBSTRATE
PREPARATION OF CONCRETE SUBSTRATE
The concrete substrate should be stable and adequately bearable.
Permissible humidity of the substrate should not exceed 4%.
It should be removed mechanically by grinding or grinding all kinds of dirt and old protective coatings. Add cavities to the epoxy resin. For weaker substrates, use a deeply penetrating epoxy resin.
To avoid the problem of microcement adhesion to the substrate, it is recommended to use the MCS Quartz Contact strainer.
ATTENTION: Cracks and voids should be repaired before making the main floor.
PREPARATION OF SUBSTRATE FROM OSB BOARDS AND WOOD-BASED MATERIALS
Furniture boards, OSB, floor panels and other furniture materials should be prepared by primed surfaces in a similar way as during the preparation of a concrete substrate. In this case, we simply omit the application of deep penetrating resin. OSB boards should be sanded in order to remove the top impregnating layer on their surface. Floor panels should be sanded using 16-24 grit sandpaper to increase substrate adhesion.
PREPARATION OF WALLS AND OTHER VERTICAL AREAS
The surface should be thoroughly vacuumed from all kinds of dust, dirt and debris.
To avoid the problem of microcement adhesion to the substrate, it is recommended to use the MCS Quartz Contact bonding layer.
MCS Quartz Contact is a ready-to-use product. Before use, mix the contents of the package until a homogeneous mass is obtained. Apply MCS Quartz Contact application using a brush or roller. Depending on the ambient temperature, let it dry for 4-7 hours.
NOTE: the ambient temperature during the work should be less than + 5 ° C and greater than + 30 ° C.
PREPARATION OF MCS MIX
We prepare the mixture by adding water to the dry matter in a ratio of 0.18-0.2 l of water for each kilogram of dry matter. Mixing with a slow speed mixer for about 3 minutes until a homogeneous mass is obtained.
ATTENTION: Do not prepare the entire microcement package due to fast mass binding.
Priming the substrate. We use MCS Quartz Kontact.
Depending on how even surfaces are equal, one or two microcement layers should be used. If microcement is applied to surfaces such as tiles or with large defects, two layers should be used. The microcement is manually applied, with steel trowels of various widths and lengths. It should be applied with fast, strong movements – circular or longitudinal. This layer should be left for about 4 hours (depending on the temperature and humidity inside the room) to dry. After this time, it is possible to sand.
Intermediate grinding We use for this purpose mechanically slow grinders or make them by hand, We use abrasive papers with gradations from 60 to 80 or diamond pads.
After polishing the surface and if necessary, it is possible to position the final microcement layer. It is applied in the same way as the first layer. This layer should be left for about 4 hours (depending on the temperature and humidity inside the room) to dry. After this time, it is possible to sand.
Final grinding of the microstructure We use for this purpose mechanically slow grinders or make them by hand, We use abrasive papers with gradations from 60 to 80 or diamond pads.
