Microcement (also called microcast) is a lightweight, reinforced concrete that can be cast in molds without pre-casting. It is similar to polymer modified asphalt (PMMA), but with fewer adhesives and sealants. Microcement is used for a variety of applications including foundations, slabs, roofing, and walkways.
Microcement is typically applied to existing concrete surfaces or precast concrete forms to create a castable surface. Microcement can also be used as an alternative to PMMA in certain situations where there are concerns about compatibility between the two materials.

The advantages of microcement over other types of concrete include:
- It has lower energy requirements than traditional concrete;
- It can be cast on virtually any surface;
- It offers limited shrinkage that causes minimal distortion during curing;
- It has excellent resistance to water penetration; and
- It can be used in cold weather conditions without causing frost heave or cracking.
Microcement is a very useful material in construction. It is used to make the concrete walls, floors and bridges. It is also used to make the roads, highways and other constructions. Microcement is also used in different industries such as cement, steel and plastic.
Microcement is used in many commercial and residential applications. It can be used to repair concrete slabs, as well as to reinforce concrete walls. It can also be used to make composite flooring materials that are more durable than traditional wood flooring.
Microcement can be used as a base for concrete floors because it holds up well under heavy traffic loads and heat expansion caused by temperature changes in the room. This makes it an excellent choice for commercial spaces where people often have their feet on the floor all day long!
The following are some of its applications:
Concrete blocks: It can be used as a substitute for conventional concrete blocks that are made of cement bricks or blocks. Microcement blocks are lightweight and do not require any reinforcing material like steel rods or bars inside them. They are durable and can withstand heavy loads without breaking down easily. They can also be washed away by water easily without leaving any residue behind on your surface after washing them off with water.
Roads: Microcement roads are thinner than regular asphalt roads which makes them suitable for rural areas where there may be no access to asphalt because of lack of fuel or funds needed for transporting it from far distances away. They do not require filling into the ground but get filled into place using concrete mixers instead of trucks which reduces traffic congestion tremendously in these areas.
