First Coat was created for dealing with problem substates such as rough and uneven floors where the use of a self levelling compound may not be practical or convenient. This product is also recommended as ideal for creating a very strong and robust base coat for any high traffic environments.
MicroFloor First Coat allows you quickly cover a primed surface with a microcement product that incorporates much large grains of glass. We often use this product fresh on fresh to take out some of the roughness and imperfections of less than optimal floor surfaces.
CARRcrete MicroFloor First Coat is essentially an uprated version of our Second Coat but instead of using 0.5mm glass particles, 1.5mm grains are used. This increased grain size not only allows rougher surfaces to be prepared ready for a standard base layer, but also increases the overall compressive strength of the overlay.
In applications where applying a self levelling compound may be problematic, MicroFloor First Coat can be applied in multiple layers to build up floors, patch low spots and to form part the ultimate in hard wearing micro overlay system.
Mixed with water and applied in the same fashion as our Second Coat layers. This product naturally boasts a superb ease of application with great rheology and flow, plus it is rapid hardening to enable the contractor to apply and get ready for the next process more quickly.
MicroFloor First Coat is also suitable for a textured non-slip finish when correctly abraded.
MicroFloor First Coat like all CARRcrete microcement products is supplied in 20 Kg recycleable plastic bags.
