Micro screed is a decorative screed with a waxed finish, imitating polished concrete. Microscreed is Flexfloorings alternative to polished concrete, a cheaper flooring solution which still enables customers to achieve the same finish – you can see how much polished concrete costs per m2 here.
Microscreed or Microcement flooring is a decorative finish, giving you an industrial polished concrete effect. These floors are seamless and grout free making them easy to maintain. The applications of the finishing products, different sealers and the final sand offer several visually different finishes, both matt and satin.
As a natural mineral, these interiors give you a clean and hypoallergenic environment. Furthermore, if in time you wish to change the colour of your finish, it only needs sanding and applying a different coloured coat of the finishing product.

MatrickCement is a Microcement system developed by Matthew Bentley, an experienced installer who spent over ten years installing a multitude of different microcement products across Europe, for the major brands.
The Matrick cement system is put together from various suppliers around Europe to ensure more control over the finished look and a system that is designed to be laid easily over screed, concretes etc.
Given Matthew’s experience of the many components that make up a microcement system, he has been able to hand pick manufacturers across Europe to provide a system to rival the bigger brands, whats more, Matrickcement understand their product from the installers perspective.
There are a number of different brands of Microcement on the market today, many manufactured in Europe and each have there own idiosyncrasies and slightly different finishes. At Flexflooring we we have tried many of them and believe that Matrickcement is one of the better products.
