Microscreed (a type of microcement) gives a very industrial modern look to any working environment. Imitating polished concrete, each floor has its own individual character, with no two surfaces looking the same. Microscreed is a natural mineral material, but is water, rather then chemical based and combines cement with polymers, to give a tough but flexible surface. The final finish can be gloss, satin or matte.

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.
