Bomanite Micro Top

TECHNICAL BULLETIN:

Micro-Top by Bomanite is a unique two part cementitious material that will tenaciously bond to virtually any substrate including concrete, asphalt, wood, metal, and plastic. Micro-Top is a combination of a liquid polymer and a colored powder mixture. The material can be applied with a squeegee or troweled onto the surface at a thickness of approximately 20 mils (less than the thickness of a credit card). A wide range of colors can be applied to create uniformity or blended to create variegation in the finish. In many cases, Micro-Top can eliminate costly abrasive blasting required by other materials, as well as reduce costly forming and coloring in outdoor treatments. Limitless color combinations and graphic designs can be used to transform damaged existing concrete or other materials into cementitious art forms, without affecting surrounding materials and fixtures.

    FEATHERS TO A ZERO EDGE

COVERAGE GUIDELINES:

All Colors: Under normal conditions, 1 gallon (3.8 L) of Micro-Top Liquid when mixed with 2 gallons (7.6 L) of Micro-Top Powder will provide approximately 100 square feet of two coat coverage. Three or more coats may be necessary on spalled, badly damaged or textured surfaces.

PACKAGING:

Standard Package: Standard package consists of three units – one 5 gallon (18.9 L) container of Micro-Top Liquid and two 5 gallon (18.9 L) moisture-resistant containers of Micro-Top Powder.

Pony Pack: Pony Pack is packaged as one unit – 1 gallon (3.8 L) of Micro-Top Liquid surrounded by 2 gallons (7.6 L) of Micro-Top Powder, all shipped within a 5 gallon (18.9 L) moisture-resistant container.

Sample Kit: Sample Kit is packaged as one unit – 1 quart (0.95 L) of Micro-Top Liquid surrounded by 2 quarts (1.9 L) of Micro-Top Powder, all shipped within a 1 gallon (3.8 L) moisture-resistant container.

GENERAL INFORMATION:

Colors

25 standard colors – Refer to the Bomanite Color Hardener/Release Agent Color Chart for color selections and names. Custom colors available upon request.

Shelf Life

Approximately 18 months. Keep Micro-Top Liquid stored indoors and above freezing temperatures. Micro-Top Powder should also be kept indoors and away from moisture.

Suggested Sealers

Bomanite Aquaseal, Bomanite Hydrocoat, Bomanite Interior Floor Seal

Maintenance

All installations should be professionally maintained on a routine basis to assure the preservation of a high-quality, long-lasting surface. This will vary depending on a number of factors including volume and intensity of traffic, UV exposure, geographical location and weather conditions. The use of a qualified flooring maintenance contractor is recommended, especially in commercial applications. Resealing will be required periodically, depending on the amount of foot traffic. Consult a qualified floor maintenance contractor for specific maintenance procedures.

Limitations

Certain aggressive stains, such as animal waste, proteins and hydraulic fluids, may produce “shadowing” in the finished flooring. Any of these materials found on the substrate should be cleaned with an appropriate cleaner and then sealed with a water-based epoxy.

Micro-Top will bond tenaciously to foreign materials that are bonded to the substrate, but the ultimate bond strength of Micro-Top is dependent on the bond strength of the foreign material.

Cautions

Keep out of the reach of children. Contains Portland Cement and free silica. See Material Safety Data Sheet for complete information.

Bay Area Concretes has a 52-year long history of residential installations and welcomes homeowner inquiries.

Due to the volume of requests for estimates, Bay Area Concretes charges an estimation service fee of $450 for residential estimates that are not conducted through a licensed general contractor or architect. The estimation service includes a site visit from one of our professional estimators who will provide an on-site inspection and a consultation with the homeowner to discuss all options and answer any questions related to the project. The estimator will then provide, within 48 hours, a written proposal detailing the scope of work and cost for Bay Area Concretes to perform the work. Should Bay Area Concretes be awarded the project, the $450 estimation fee will be refunded after the final invoice is paid.
