Unlike the majority of resins that cannot be applied in exterior environments, Microtopping® is ideal for external applications such as terraces, footpaths, swimming pool decks, porches and walls. Microtopping® is provided with good protection from: water penetration, climatic stress, de-icing salts and UV rays.
Microtopping® is ideal both for creating new flooring and restoring existing surfaces. One special feature is its ability to be used over old wooden, ceramic and concrete floors without any need for removal.
After carefully assessing the base and with proper preparation, Microtopping® can be installed on any type of surface. Your Ideal Work installer will know how to advise you on the feasibility or otherwise of the operation and help you to choose the most suitable solution for your requirements.
At only 3-4 mm of thickness, with Microtopping® you can have a new floor without having to remove or modify the doors and windows already in the dwelling (unless the doors and windows are not perfectly aligned with the floor).
Microtopping® has perfect adhesion even on surfaces with underfloor heating systems. It is fundamental to choose a suitable support for the heating system installed. Microtopping® has a heat conductivity value of λ =0.46.
Microtopping® was created to respond to the needs of those who do not like joints. Applicable both vertically and horizontally, it bestows maximum continuity to these areas. The installer will, however, assess whether it would be appropriate to respect existing joints
