Hydraulic Effect

A version of the hydraulic tile which combines a classic design with modern style.

IngreMic provides a novel ornamental and continuous pavement for both indoor and outdoor, which is made high quality pigmented microcement, aggregates and fibers. Through new printing techniques it offers elegant and rustic finish, imitating traditional tiled floors. The application is simple, manually and artisan without very traumatic reforms.

More Information

Data Sheet


The hydraulic effect is an innovative decorative coating consisting of a special microcemento for floors and walls with polymer additives 1 to 2 mm thick. Layers applied by trowel and spatula. It has a very fine and special finish for interior walls and floors of little foot traffic.


  • By developing new techniques it provides an elegant, rustic and vintage finish.
  • No need to lift the existing surface, being very practical, cost-effective and relatively atraumatic reforms.
  • Its huge variety of colors allows adaptation and harmony with the desired atmosphere.
  • The approximate 1 to 2 millimeters thick shall not establish a visual impact on the coated surfaces or technical problems with frames and cover plates for doors and windows.
  • The print design hydraulic tiles can be with forms or figures standards or custom designs for your unique coating.


The physical characteristics of the hydraulic effect as adhesion and impermeability allows it to be applied:

  • Interior walls.
  • Flooring little foot traffic as toilets, shower trays and bathtubs.
  • Walls of kitchens, furniture, islands, sinks, doors and work tables or DM repellent.
  • False ceilings.

Performance: Approximately 1.9 to 2.2 m² / kg by layer depending on the type of base and irregularity.

Preparation of the base:

  • The base to be coated must be clean, dry and free of dust and grease.
  • The base must be level or smoothed.
  • The foundations of concrete or mortar must be completely cured.
  • In very porous base primer liquid prior microcement recommended in the ratio 1 part of component A and 1 part of component B, applied by roller.
  • The base tile with a minimum of movement must be pre-treated glass fiber mats or in some cases with resins and aggregates to minimize movements. If the move is significant it is recommended to take the piece and fill flush with elastic mortar.

Product preparation:

  • Make a mixture of component “A” dust from 2.8 to 3.0 parts and component “B” liquid to 1 part, always adding to the vessel liquid first and then slowly pouring the powder go without while mixing with propeller until a homogeneous paste is manageable with level becomes.


  • If the device is to point trowel and spatula on the surface to be coated.
  • The application of 2 layers Concrete Plates Effects required.
  • Should be sanded between coats and vacuum the dust before an upcoming issue.
  • After the last layer applied Concrete Plates Effects should allow between 12 and 16 hours to proceed to the final cut, then fine should aim reviewing the entire surface with sandpaper defects previously unseen.
  • To proceed with the sealing is essential to respect the drying times are Concrete Plates Effects 24 hours.
  • Apply the first coat of sealer with sponge talocha diluting with water at a ratio of 1×1, the following layers of sealant are applied pure, with short nap roller finally wax is applied with a sponge trowel. The type and amount of sealant layers of sealant and wax applied depend spaces or areas to be coated and if zone in contact with water. This information is provided by the skilled artisan or by the Technical Instructions.
