Micro-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

Preparation of the Concrete

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.
