A micro-topping is a cementitious polymer mixture applied in very low thicknesses starting from 1mm to 3mm coat used to either achieve a completely new seamless look or repair old cracked concrete. It achieves a superb compressive strength and is ideally suitable for resurfacing and providing an ornamental, rustic top surface. It can be polished to provide a dense, satin-finish surface. With virtually unlimited design options and quick installation time, micro cement floors can turn any space into a vibrant and beautifully designed area. It is applied on floors as well as walls to provide a uniform space with light, depth and harmony. Neocrete UTM is formulated to offer a Micro Topping cement flooring solution that can be applied over concrete, tile, wood or any stone flooring without the need to remove the substrate.
