  • Address Excess Moisture: If there's excess moisture present, it's important to address it before applying Smartcret microcement to ensure proper adhesion and performance.

Our Smart Varnish provides two finish options: matte and satin.

Our kits are meticulously designed to ensure that no detail is overlooked. If you lack extensive DIY knowledge and are unsure about what you need, we recommend purchasing the kit. This ensures that you have all the necessary materials to complete the job correctly. Our web selector can assist you in choosing the appropriate kit for your needs.

  • 1 polycarbonate and aluminum trowel
  • 2 WT rollers
  • 1 sanding glove
  • 1 roller handle
  • 1 spatula

Smartcret Microcement can be applied to two different types of surfaces: porous and non-porous. Each surface type requires different primers. Porous surfaces such as plaster, gypsum, and concrete require one of our absorbent microcement kits, while non-porous surfaces like tile, ceramic, and marble require an on-absorbent microcement kit.

Yes, all our products are available for individual purchase in our online store.

Unlike other microcements, Smartcret is sold pre-pigmented. This means that our Elegance Collection range offers 21 colors, encompassing various shades to ensure you can select the one that best complements your envisioned style.

Smartcret is incredibly easy to clean. A simple solution of water and pH-neutral soap is sufficient for regular cleaning. However, for a professional result and to preserve all the properties of the microcement, we offer Smart Cleaner and Smart Wax. These exclusive products are specifically designed for the care, maintenance, and cleaning of microcement.

Our ready-to-use microcement, in its original state, can withstand running water and humidity. However, when you apply the Smart Varnish polyurethane sealer, it further enhances this resistance, making it particularly suitable for kitchens and bathrooms. It's important to note that this resistance is designed for occasional contact with water; stagnant water should be avoided.

Smartcret Microcement Application

SMARTCRET Do It Yourself is designed for easy use, eliminating the need to mix multiple components. It's an ideal product for DIY enthusiasts. Additionally, our kit includes a step-by-step guide and there are video tutorials online, making the application process even simpler.

Before applying Smartcret, it's essential to prepare the surface with a primer.

Smartcret is applied in several layers using a roller and a trowel, suitable for indoor use on leveled and consolidated vertical and horizontal surfaces.

Thin coats are crucial to prevent cracks. It's important to adhere to the specified drying times outlined in the step-by-step instructions for each surface.

Once the product is dry, it should be sealed with Smartcret Varnish.

If the surface to be coated has grout joints, it is necessary to level the surface by filling them with our Smart Jointer.

No, the most crucial aspect is to apply the material in a thin layer and always adhere to the specified drying times. The addition of mesh or profiles necessitates a thicker layer to cover them, which in turn delays drying and affects hardness.

However, it's imperative to ensure that the substrate is in good condition before applying the product. If the substrate is damaged or in poor condition and microcement is applied on top, it will crack. This issue arises due to the poor condition of the substrate, not because the mesh is unnecessary.

There are several reasons why using mesh is not necessary when renovating with Smartcret ready-to-use microcement:

  1. Thin Layer Application: As previously discussed, Smartcret is applied in a very thin layer. The thicker the layer, the higher the likelihood of cracks. This is why microcements with thicker granulometries and larger grain sizes typically require mesh.
  2. Enhanced Flexibility: Smartcret is more flexible than other microcements, which is a distinct advantage of ready-to-use microcement systems. Other systems with more components may experience reduced flexibility.
  3. No Extra Strength Required: Mesh is typically used to reinforce microcement support and provide greater strength and stability. However, Smartcret ready-to-use microcement does not require it as its performance is assured. Additionally, not needing mesh reduces the installation process.
  4. Different Formulation: Smartcret's microcement has a unique formulation where the aggregate, resin, and quartz loads are more balanced compared to other ready-to-use microcements that may require mesh for reinforcement.

Yes, before starting the application, it is necessary to stir SMARTCRET Do It Yourself. Our products are available in 6 buckets to facilitate manual mixing by spatula, but if you have the possibility to use a mechanical mixer, it's even better.

If you need to temporarily stop applying the product and want to preserve its properties, simply cover the surface of the bucket with a plastic film to prevent the product from being exposed to air and drying out. Afterward, ensure the bucket is tightly closed and store it in a cool place away from direct light sources.

Smartcret offers many possibilities and can be applied on all types of surfaces and materials: tiles, terrazzo, plaster, cement, etc.

Yes, you can paint over microcement. It's important to note that the Smart Varnish sealer is designed to repel dirt and other materials to protect the microcement. However, you can easily paint over it without any issues by sanding the surface beforehand.

Smartcret should be applied to smooth and leveled surfaces. If you intend to apply the product over a stippled surface, it's necessary to level the surface or remove the stippling beforehand.

Each stage of the Smartcret application process has its own drying time. However, in general, Smartcret dries quickly, significantly reducing the time required for the entire renovation process compared to traditional methods. For specific drying times, refer to our step-by-step guide.

If you have DIY skills, you'll likely find the job easier. However, even without prior experience, you can successfully complete the project by following our step-by-step guide.

Smart Primer ABS is designed for absorbent surfaces like plaster or gypsum, whereas Smart Primer GRIP enhances grip on non-absorbent surfaces such as tile, metal, marble, terrazzo, etc.

If you're unsure which Smart Primer is suitable for your surface, please consult our technical service. We're here to assist you with your home renovation needs.

Problems with Microcement

One of the most common misconceptions about microcement is that it easily cracks, but this is not true. The issue of microcement cracking typically stems from the quality of the substrate and incorrect application methods. However, with high-quality materials and proper application techniques, cracking should not occur. Our product effectively addresses this concern, ensuring a crack-free result.

Microcement is not prone to scratching. Proper protection and care are essential. If applied to high-traffic surfaces like floors, extra attention and care are necessary, particularly regarding the application of varnishes. At Smartcret, our Smart Varnish helps safeguard against scratches and maintain the integrity of the microcement.

Microcement doesn't have to be prone to staining. It's essential to protect and take care of it. Like any other material, immediate cleaning is necessary for oil, coffee, or food residues. If applied to a high-traffic surface like the floor, extra consideration and care are required, particularly with the application of varnishes. At Smartcret, we offer our Smart Varnish sealer.
