Highlight its Stone finish beauty
Cemher is inspired by the purest nature to create microcement and achieve its unique stone design. This is the main raison d’être of our brand claim: “the origin”.
Since 1940, we have been remembering the role of nature in the origin of life. When the rock formations, from which we now draw our supplies, bore witness to the evolution of the first humans.
That was the origin of life and Cemher, with its microcement, manages to extrapolate it to today’s interior design. We make it possible to feel the origin of life in your own home. In a way, microcement gives nature to the environment that surrounds it.
CEMHER® MICROCEMENT IS COMPOSED OF HIGH QUALITY MINERALS, CEMENT, RESINS, ADDITIVES AND MINERAL PIGMENTS.
"Open your senses so you don't miss anything around you"
HOW DOES CEMHER MICROCEMENT DIFFER FROM OTHER COATINGS?
Use: it can be applied on both vertical and horizontal surfaces, thanks to its great adhesion. As well as in wet areas such as bathrooms or swimming pools.
Main advantage: it can be laid over existing material (tiles, plasterboard, marble, terrazzo, glass, etc) without the need to remove the previous floor or wall covering. This is possible thanks to its minimum thickness (3mm). A room can be renovated with hardly any building work or debris.
Really different from the rest: if there is something that differentiates microcement from the rest of the alternatives, it is the absence of joints. Forget about the unsightly joints of porcelain tiles and floating floorboards. Microcement is a continuous cladding, so it gives rooms a unique feeling of continuity and spaciousness.
It blends in perfectly with its surroundings, without detracting from the decoration that complements it.
ADVANTAGES OF CEMHER MICROCEMENT

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is Cemher Microcement Cemher certified?
In addition to being a CE certified product, cemher Microcement has been subjected to multiple tests.
Is a microcement safe for health?
Yes, strict tests show that, after the application and drying phases, Microcement does not release substances into the air that are harmful to adults and children.
Are the surfaces resistant to foot traffic and impact?
Tests show the high resistance of Microcement to various stresses. The surface resistance is higher than that of wood. It is advisable to observe some tips on surface maintenance. See the frequently asked questions: “How to maintain a perfect appearance over time”.
What can the resistance of Microcement be compared to?
Microcement has specifications similar to those of a high-end wood flooring. This material has excellent strength and is suitable for use as a coating of floors and walls, however the traditional microcement is not comparable to ceramics, but our microcement microrock is the only one that is comparable to ceramic surfaces.
Can microcement surfaces be scratched?
All surfaces, even the toughest, can be scratched. Think of steel (the body of cars) which scratches easily when subjected to stress with sharp objects. As with all surfaces, these scratches will be more evident on very shiny surfaces and soft on more matte surfaces. For this reason, we recommend a dull finish and a more material effect. If scratches need to be removed, extraordinary maintenance can be performed, as with wood surfaces.
What colors are available?
Thanks to the special toners, it is possible to obtain many color combinations. The intensity and shade of the color will vary, depending on the amount of dye used. In fact, the color chart only offers a rough guide: it will be the applicator’s task to provide samples based on the customer’s requests. It is also possible to create effects such as polished, silky, cloudy and acid dyes, as well as to provide shades and decorative inserts to form unique and customized finishes with great aesthetic impact and elegance.
Take a look at the color page.
On average, how long does it take to create a Microcement surface?
As a guide, it would take about a week to create 100 m2. But application times depend on the complexity and type of installation. In the case of an existing surface, it may require a few more days, necessary for the evaluation and preparation of the base.
Can the color and appearance of a microcement surface change over time?
The colors used have maximum resistance to UV rays and the protective treatments do not yellow. As with all types of materials, after constant exposure to sunlight and moonlight, the colors may fade slightly, which cannot be considered a defect.
Can accidental dropping of heavy objects ruin the coating?
Yes, heavy and sharp objects can mark microcement surfaces.
If water, oil or other substances are spilled, will the microcement stain?
Cemher offers a wide range of sealers and types of microcements. The choice of the appropriate protection and type of microcement depends on the requirements of the end customer. There are solvent and water-based products. Depending on the chosen sealer will fully protect from liquid substances, especially the most used in the domestic environment, such as wine, oils, vinegar and coffee, must be removed quickly from the surface of microcement before they can penetrate to any depth, if used in combination of waterproof microcements mass and the most resistant sealer will get a surface completely impervious to stains, water etc.
How can you maintain a perfect appearance over time?
Certain effective precautions are recommended: a) provide a doormat at the entrance of the house that can retain dust, sand and abrasive particles b) sweep or vacuum regularly c) use protective felt under furniture, especially under furniture that is moved often, such as chairs d) in case it is necessary to move heavy furniture, e) before painting, electrical, plumbing, moving and handling furniture, protect the floor with cardboard, wool blankets and nylon sheeting.
How do you keep a microcement surface clean?
Cleaning a microcement floor is very simple. A damp cloth is enough to clean the surfaces, with the addition of a little neutral detergent for floors. It is recommended to periodically treat the floor with a specific protective product that does not contain waxes, so it does not scratch with footsteps and does not disappear in a short space of time, this product is FLOOR PROTECT (Visit the maintenance page). Detergents based on acid, ammonia, chlorine or any abrasive detergent product are absolutely forbidden. It is recommended to use only neutral detergents that are not aggressive.
Is microcement a resin?
Cemher brand does not manufacture paints, but cement and polymer coatings for use as a decorative finish (thickness 2-4 mm) for interior and exterior surfaces. Considered as an example of a coating with great architectural and aesthetic value, microcement was formulated to coat, restore and recreate vertical and horizontal surfaces, while offering the much sought-after effect of “cement finish” floors.
Can I change the color of the surfaces once they have been created?
Yes, simply sand/scrape the surface and reapply Microcement. This procedure is especially useful for the restoration and renovation of surfaces such as, for example, change of use of commercial premises.
I have underfloor heating: Can I use Microcement?
Microcement has a perfect adhesion even on surfaces with underfloor heating systems. It is essential to choose a suitable substrate for the installed heating system. Cemher microcement has a heat conductivity value of λ = 0.46.
Can kitchen countertops and bar counters be made in Microcement?
Yes, it can be used on any type of surface provided it is treated properly. However, it is not recommended to expose the product to continuous contact with a heat source, or place hot pots, the special microcement microrock if that can withstand high temperatures and waterproof, but it is always advisable not to overexpose long periods at high temperatures as a precaution, although the product withstands more than 200 º temperature.
I would like to coat a fireplace and a kitchen countertop: Is microcement heat resistant?
Heat resistance tests performed on the material obtained excellent results. Microcement was heated to a temperature of 200°C without showing any defects. However, it is not advisable to place boiling objects directly on the surface, so suitable heat-resistant mats should be used. In addition, in the case of kitchen countertops, it is recommended to use a suitable cutting board, microrock withstands high temperatures and hardnesses similar to ceramics, but a sharp knife could damage the surface as with marble, ceramics, etc.
With a thickness of only 3 mm, can Microcement be used on exterior surfaces that support cars and heavy vehicles?
Absolutely yes. Microcement has a high resistance to abrasion and is also recommended for the construction of access ramps, parking lots and driveways. In these cases, only the base coat version of Microcement is applied, which also ensures that the material has slip resistance. Also, remember that resistance to vehicular traffic is determined by the thickness of the substrate. When restoring old floors, it will be convenient to verify the conditions and find out the thickness of the support, the best microcement for these surfaces is the microrock.
