Low bleed
Excellent penetration and waterproofing, particularly in tight fissures and low porosity soils
Controlled setting
High ultimate strength
Good long-term durability
Compatible with most admixture types
Can replace chemical grouts in some situations
Can be used with standard cement injection equipment
No hazardous fumes leading to a safer working environment

Microcem® 550


Fine cement, combining high fineness with good early strength development. Suitable for use in cement-based adhesives, repair compounds, flowing screeds and grouts.

Microcem® 650


Superfine cement (finer than MICROCEM®550) suitable for injection into joints, cracks, fissures and soils to produce a water-tight mass of grouted rock or soil.

Microcem® 650 SR


Superfine cement suitable for injection into joints, cracks, fissures and soils to produce a water-tight mass of grouted rock or soil. Similar fineness to MICROCEM® 650, but slower setting. Particularly suited for use in hot climates.

Microcem® 900


An ultrafine product (finer than MICROCEM® 650), suitable for injection into hard rock, tight joints and fissures.

Controlled setting and low bleed

Excellent penetration and waterproofing, particularly in tight fissures and low porosity soils

High ultimate strength and good long-term durability

Compatible with most admixture types

Can replace chemical grouts in some situations

Can be used with standard cement injection equipment

No hazardous fumes leading to a safer working environment
