Topciment offers a colour chart with a selection of 40 basic choices. This is merely the basic range of the most demanded colours.
If there is anything that typifies us, it is that we can achieve almost any colour tonality. So, if the colour you want is not among our basic range, it is not a problem, you may choose à la carte (from 100m2). Customising your rooms has never been so easy, we make it possible; just leave it to us.
There are several textures (see Types of Microcement) and varnishes that distinguish the final appearance and finish of our microcement.
Since microcement is a porous material, a sealant must be applied to make it impermeable and protect it from dirt.
Topciment offers 3 types of finishes in sealants:
It gives a very natural appearance to the coating, which lightly softens the colour tone.
It gives a medium appearance between a matt and gloss finish. It is the most popular one and gives a modern look.
Brightens and enhances the colour, giving a marble-like effect.
Arcocem Metal is our metallic paint par excellence which achieves natural and aged oxide effects in the decorative finish. It is made of fine metal particles.
Please believe us, the results will surprise anyone! Enjoy rooms and spaces of an original aspect with an industrial appearance.
We have a range of 4 metallic paints:
Within the Arcomen Metal products range, there are alternative finishes, such as metal glazes or patina.
These are pigments with a metallic effect, which do not need to be oxidised as with metal paints. They are an extra for the decoration of surfaces and achieve a homogeneous effect of metallic reflections.
We have different glaze colours:
There are no limits when it comes to generating a colour, but it should be kept in mind that microcement is a craft product. Consequently, there are variables that can change the tone of the finish, such as with the application of the sealer; according to the finish chosen (matte, satin or gloss) the colour will either get duller or more vivid. The tone requested by a customer can be made as close as possible to any on the colour chart, although perhaps without perfect accuracy.
The pigments used to make our colours are of a mineral origin. It is possible to distinguish those of mineral origin and those of organic origin. The pigments of mineral origin, behave best when faced with the cement´s alkalinity. Organic pigments (molecules containing carbon), are less stable and when weathered end up being transformed into other compounds without a pigmentary attribute, or they migrate to the surface; consequently, over time initial tones disappear almost completely. Inorganic pigments generally maintain stability in mortars and concretes.
