What the regulations require of a soil will depend on the type of activity to be carried out on it, its slope and its location. the slope and the location of the land.
In order to offer our customers the safest solutions, Topciment has carried out slipperiness tests in Topciment has carried out slipperiness tests at Wessex, the only testing laboratory in the only testing laboratory in Spain specialised in this field. Being as application of microcement is a process with many variables, we have tested different alternatives for different application and finish alternatives have been tested to achieve compliance with current national to achieve compliance with current national and international regulations on the slipperiness.
With these results, technicians will be able to choose, depending on the slipperiness needs, the system to meet the requirements of the the system to meet the requirements of the standards. Having said That said, it should be borne in mind that the Microcement is applied in situ, the hand of the hand of the applicator influences the final result, so the results we give can only be understood as reference values. can only be understood as reference values.
