Microcement
Swimming pools

The MicroPool is a decorative coating of 2-4 mm thick, with a special rustic finish for pools and ponds.

Made a mixture of polymer additives, water-repellent components, quality cement, aggregates and fibers. Thanks to its properties it becomes the most recommendable in the coating pool. It does not require any joints, so it generates sensations of space and aesthetics; it is also very easy to clean and creates an atmosphere of modernity.

It is not necessary to raise the existing surface, which facilitates reform by making it convenient and more profitable.
