Concrete Micro-Topping Diy

 

4Micro-Topping is a thin, flexible layer that is designed to bond to concrete. But the cement-like material also works with wood, plastic or metal. MicroTopping can be used for interior or exterior projects, on vertical or horizontal surfaces, and provides a durable coating that protects the underlying material in wet conditions.A variety of color options and combinations allows unique designs that can be installed directly on bare, hardened concrete. The finished application is only as thin as a credit card. Micro-Top can be used on smooth concrete or printed on floors, walls and concrete countertops. Let us see how you can do concrete microtopping yourself.

Things you will need

  • Trowel or a 6-inch spatula
  • Rollers

Preparation of the Concrete

  • Clean the dust and debris from the concrete. Vacuum the surface completely to remove all loose material.
  • Use a degreasing detergent to remove all traces of grease and oil.
  • Wash away the residue and allow it to dry completely. 
  • Scrape, grind or sand any foreign material that protrudes from the floor to create a solid flat surface. 
  • Clean up any debris created in this process.
  • Fill the cracks and chips by installing evenly semi-rigid elastomeric crack filler with a wide squeegee.

Applying the Micro-Top Finish

  1. Mark any design or pattern you want to use on bare concrete with a marker. Label the color to use for each area, creating a paint-by-number pattern directly on the concrete surface.
  2. You can create any color or pattern design you want.
  3. Pour a small amount of micro-Top base coat onto a prepared floor section. It is spread over the coverage area in a thin sheet with a spatula or a spatula. Continue this process until all areas are covered. Wait until this coat is dry to the touch.
  4. Apply the acrylic sealant to the whole Micro-Top system with a brush or paint roller. Let this finish dry completely before allowing traffic to the surface.

Suggestions & Warnings

  • Use the Bomanite epoxy primer under the base layer if the original concrete is prone to water penetration from below.
  • Protect the application in a high layer of micro-top from water spray to prevent permanent white fading in the final finish.
  • Read the instructions of all manufacturers completely before the start project.
  • Sandblasting and grinding the entire surface is not necessary unless necessary to create a particular effect.
