Purus Drainage Solutions for Micro Cement & Micro Concrete: Innovative New Floor Finishes

Floor Finishes - Floor Gullies - Wetroom Drainage - Channel Drains

Purus Resin Grate

Purus Limited, the Swedish manufacturers of floor gullies and drains for level-access bathroom areas, are very pleased to announce that they offer drainage solutions suitable for the increasingly popular floor finishes, micro cement and micro concrete. The two innovative design products can be applied very thinly to any hard surface and allow for an aesthetic similar to concrete but without the fuss of laying a thick, heavy screed. They are ideal solutions for a modern, minimalistic look in your bathroom or wetroom space which offers something a little different to the traditional tiled finish.

What are they?
Micro cement and micro concrete are modern and tasteful alternative floor finishes that cut out the dust and disruption of traditional construction whilst maintaining a safe and durable exterior to replicate the smoothness of concrete, without the normal thickness and weight. Both floor finishes can be applied very thinly to existing surfaces such as tiles, existing old cement or existing bathroom and wetroom surfaces including those suffering from moisture damage.

Micro cement vs. micro concrete
Micro cement is made of cement and quartz and can be applied to any existing hard surface at thicknesses of just 1-2mm. Micro concrete is ideal for more robust environments such as external areas and commercial settings. It is applied slightly more thickly at 2-3mm and is more slip-resistant than micro cement. Both surfaces are extremely simple to apply, easy to maintain and make a great lighter option for bathrooms and wetrooms.

Their ease of use and waterproof properties make micro cement and micro concrete great options for those looking to add an affordable, hardwearing and hygienic concrete aesthetic into a bathroom or wetroom area.
