  • STEP: 1

    Preparation of substrate

    The substrate must be stable, free of oily stains and dust, without cracks and completely flat. If the substrate comprises two different materials or uneven surfaces, it is imperative to cover joints/uneven surfaces with a mash, ditra mat, a screed or ultrafibre.

    PRIMER: apply at a criss-cross. Allow to dry for at least 1 hour before applying the concrete.

    Tip: for non-flat substrates or tiles, the surface must first be evened out with coating (eg, tile glue, a levelling compound or ultrafibre) to make it flat.
  • STEP: 2

    Colouring and mixing the PIGMENT

    1. In a bucket, mix the colour pigments with 3 litres of water, using a mechanical mixer.
    2. Take a quantity of pigmented water, then add the micro concrete powder, mixing with the mixer to obtain a homogeneous mixture.

    The exact amount of pigmented water for 10kg of concrete is 2.7 litres. If your mixture is too hard, add more pigmented water.

    Remember to mix the water well before each use.

  • STEP: 3

    APPLICATION

    Apply a first layer using a trowel or a smoothing blade maximum 1mm thick.

    Then apply a second layer: this can be done when the surface is still wet or dry. Smooth out the second coat to give it a uniform appearance.

    Once dry (24 hours), to smooth the concrete, sand it down with a 120 grit sandpaper. It is advisable to use an orbital sander.

    (Before proceeding to the next step make sure the surface has been vacuumed and that it is dust-free and dry.)

  • STEP: 4

    TREATMENT (SEALER)

    Apply the sealer (satin) twice at a criss-cross. Total drying time: 24 hours.

    (Before proceeding to the next step make sure the surface has been vacuumed and that it is dust-free and dry.)

    High Protection Gloss Varnish: Apply two or three layers at a criss-cross. Total drying time: 48 hours.

    (or)

    Resine Matt Finish: Mix resin A with compound B. Apply the mixture at a criss-cross. Total drying time: 24 hours.
