DECORATIVE SEAMLESS MICROCMENT COATING SYSTEM
PLACO® is an ideal seamless coating system for turning existing mundane surfaces into elegant yet simple continuous surfaces between walls and floors. With only 3mm in thickness, this weather, chemical and impact-resistance material can be applied on many surfaces without removing them.
Perfect for covering any existing vertical or horizontal surfaces such as plasterboard, concrete, wood, masory walls, tiles, metal, acrylic or polycarbonate, wall-paper, epoxy, glass, vinyl flooring and laminate flooring.
Superb adhesion strength and weather resistance makes it a perfect resurfacing material for existing buildings. Waterproofing and slip-resistant features allows it to be installed in both residential and
commercial areas including bathrooms without any visible joints. High in flexural strength makes PLACO® ideal for covering existing joint-based surfaces such as tile, wood, vinyl and laminate flooring and stone without cracking.
Placo® can be installed over many of the existing surface without removing them. Thereby saving the demolition cost as well as shortening the construction duration. This makes placo® very environmentally friendly and cost-effective compare to traditional building materials.
Quick-drying characteristic of placo® allows applicators to install more than one coat of placo® per day. The usual drying time between each coat is around 3 to 4 hours. Depending on the size of a jobsite and number of applicators, entire installing process can be finished in 1 to 2 days.
Placo® is easy to maintain due to having no surface joints. When placo® is completely sealed using marblecoating® wbp/pu, the surface is no longer porous and resists fungal and bacterial growth.
Whether it be a complete renovation or partial installation, placo® is perfect for those who want to achieve sleek modern design by redefining vintage modern style by eliminating surface joints between ceilings, walls and floors.

Using different plaster tools allows the applicator to create a natural concrete texture or smooth microcement finish that offers both a modern and vintage aesthetic appearance without any joints or interruption lines.
Placo® base is the primary application of the 3-step application. It contains coarse aggregate [between 0.6~0.8mm] as a gauge to determine the initial installation thickness. Also, this step creates a strong base surface for the following installation.
Placo® max is the secondary application of the 3-step application. It contains medium aggregate [between 0.3~0.5mm] to provide extra structural strength. This application is recommended for industrial flooring areas or high foot traffic areas such as hotel lobbies, lounges, cafes, or retail shops. This application provides increased resistance to stains or cracks.
Placo® top is the final step of the 3-step application. It contains very fine aggregate [0.1~0.3mm] to provide a smooth finish. To achieve an extra smooth finish, two coats of placo® top can be applied. *placo® surface is then sealed and protected by applying a coat of marblecoating® wbp.

Personalize your very own colorful surface using one of 20 different prime colors. Simply add a container of placo® colorant into a bucket of placo®. Each container is specifically weighed to display the final color listed in the color chart.
If desired, less than a full container can be added to each placo® bucket to achieve lighter color shade. Also, our color mix matching system can create over 1,000 custom finish colors
