Microscreed Training

Last week I was delighted to help bring about the first Solacir Interiors training workshop using Microscreed in the UK. Along with Floored Genius (UK) Ltd and Grace Construction Products Limited we trained six delegates from four companies in the application of this modern mineral material.

As well as practical workshops focusing on the mixing of the microscreed and the application of the product by trowel there were also theory sessions covering, surface preparation and the application of protective sealer coats and wax.

Additional tips and techniques were provided by an expert from Grace who came over from France specifically for the training.

The day was hugely successful, giving the delegates a new appreciation of the versatility of this modern mineral material and resulting in a fantasic new microscreed floor in the workshop for the hosts Floored Genius (UK) Ltd.

Waxed Concrete Flooring

My most recent project has involved the installation of a 10mm self levelling decorative concrete floor at The National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, London.

The material was supplied by a French company, ‘waxed concrete’ is much more widely used on the continent and after this project, I must admit that I am quite a fan.

The mineral composition of the material gives a very natural finish and the use of modern sealers and wax allow a choice of aspects; gloss, satin or matt.

The finished floor is flat, smooth and dense, the sealers and wax ensure that it will stay that way and unlike polished concrete it is not going to crack or deteriorate over time.
