Multicoat Micro-Topping is a high quality, polymer modified, cement based, smooth finish coating, that when mixed with water, produces a tough, durable finish. The finish is then able to accept stains and sealers. An ideal system for interior or exterior applications. Withstands heavy commercial foot traffic.
The thickness, application method, number of coats applied, surface absorption, weather conditions, etc., will affect square foot coverage per bag. Typical coverage per bag will range from 100 to 300 sq. ft. per bag.
Application & Use:
MICRO-TOPPING is typically applied using a steel trowel or “Magic trowel” for a smooth finish. MICRO-TOPPING can also be applied using a hopper gun or squeegee. MICRO-TOPPING should be dry after approximately 6-8 hours depending on temperature and humidity. MULTICOAT MULTI-STAIN, ACRATHANE COLORSEAL or CLEARSEAL may be applied.
MIXING Pour 5 to 7 quarts of water into a clean pail. Do not deviate from this amount. Slowly add MICRO-TOPPING to the pail. To avoid lumps, add the powder slowly while mixing. Faster mixing can be achieved by using a drill and paddle mixer. Consistency should be that of pancake batter. Let mixture stand for 3-5 minutes (depending on weather) and then remix.
EXPANSION JOINTS The control and expansion joints are NECESSARY. Do not ﬁll expansion or control joints with MICRO-TOPPING. Structural cracks and cracks due to continuing movement of the substrate may telegraph through the MICRO-TOPPING. After application of MICRO-TOPPING ﬁll expansion or control joint with suitable caulking.
