Micro-cement & polished concrete
Industrial chic is very much of the ‘now’ and at Earthcoat we offer two very distinct products and finishes that give any interior that perfect, smooth edged industrial feel.
On one hand we have Micro-cement which is a 5-6mm topping coat that works on any surface that you have in your home. The cement looking finish is as hard wearing as it beautiful, it’s smooth to touch and is available in whatever colour you desire, although we have to say, grey is a classic colour for this product.
On the other hand, we have Polished-concrete which is a much thicker finish at 75mm. Containing a specific mix of perfectly suited aggregate, this product is predominantly for floors and worktops in new build property. Once polished, this finish delivers real impact, where the aggregates ‘pop’ visually as part of this wonderfully tactile, hard wearing surface… almost too good to put anything on top of.
Its functionality continues as its completely waterproof and of course hard wearing, which makes it perfect for kitchens, bathrooms and even wet rooms. There’s also no grout lines as there would be with kitchen and bathroom tiles, which means that it’s easier to clean and keep hygienic.
As surface finishes, Micro-cement and Polished-concrete about as versatile as they comes and can be used as most surfaces including walls, floors, wet rooms and even table tops and certain furniture. These products are genuinely a perfect way of creating something bespoke in your home and of course are available in a full range of colours.
The durability of the products is undoubted and can boast both anti-scratch and anti-stain properties which means that anything using Micro-cement or Polished-concrete require little or no maintenance. As an additional benefit, Micro-cement and Polished-concrete have non-slip properties which also make them perfect for bathrooms, wet rooms, spas and even swimming pool areas.
Micro-cement and Polished-concrete are two of the most ‘on trend’ products available on the market today with an ever increasing demand from architects, professional interior designers and general interior aficionados. These product transforms spaces like no other to create the sort of finishes that you usually only see in high end retail and restaurants. So, when it comes to Micro-cement and Polished-concrete, our advice is simple, be a leader and not a follower because this is set to a be a classic trend that will last for years to come.
