What is TOPCRET (BAXAB)?
Does the price of the product and its application vary according to the material on which it is placed?
The cost of the applying micro-cement coating is the same on any surface. There will only be an additional cost in cases where there has been extreme deterioration or where the surface to be coated is irregular and it is necessary to apply a self-levelling agent or an extra micro-cement base layer. Topcret offers surface preparation to our clients or you can opt to have it done separately.
Can I customize any Topcret product?
Topcret can customize your coating with drawings, logos, texts, ornaments and combinations of colours. If you do not find the colour you want in our catalogue, Topcret can create custom colours that meet the requirements of your project. With Topcret there are no limits to bringing any design or colour to a surface.
To what types of surfaces can BAXAB be applied?
Due to the great adhesive qualities of BAXAB, it is possible to apply it to almost any type of stable surface: ceramic, porcelain, cement, mortar, tiles, plaster, or marble. As it is not necessary to remove the existing material, installation is quick, time and cost saving. In addition, it is not necessary to apply for a building permit so hassles are kept to the minimum.
Is it possible to apply BAXAB on wood or parquet floors?
Due to the inherent instability of wood or parquet floor, it is necessary to remove them prior to the application of BAXAB.
Can there be imperfections in the product?
The application of all Topcret products is done by hand. The coating is applied manually by trowel, so the variations in texture are unique and characteristic of the individual application.
Is your product waterproof?
All Topcret products are waterproof, which makes them suitable for wet areas, such as kitchens, bathrooms, showers or bathtubs. However, the base where the coating is applied must be completely dry and free from moisture at the time of application.
In case of new construction, what is the most appropriate base material?
Due to the high adhesion capacity of all Topcret products, they can be applied to any surface except wood or parquet floors. A rigid base with a smooth surface that is free of cracks is required. The base can be mortar, cement, polished concrete, anhydrite or self levelling mortar, and in some cases, low-cost ceramic coating.
Because your products don’t have joints, is there a greater risk of cracking?
Absolutely not! Due to their great adhesive capacity and because only a very thin layer of the products needs to be applied, Topcret products do not crack under most circumstances. The only way cracks may occur is if the base on which the coating is applied undergoes some significant movement, settlement or expansion. The incorporation of a fiberglass mesh minimizes the risks of cracks.
