Having a beautiful home aesthetically and having a strong structure is a dream for everyone. Therefore, nowadays many who decided to build their dream home from scratch rather than buying a ready-made home.

Building a house from scratch gives a lot advantages for the owner, including the design of the house according to taste and the selection of quality materials that can be controlled. Unfortunately, until now there are still many who make mistakes of building a house.

One of the fundamental mistakes that still occur is the use of cement and its application. Cement is an important material in the building process and consists of several types for each different function.

Incorrect application of cement often occurs in the process of making walls. Not a few people who use ordinary cement used to stick the brick walls are also to perform the process of plaster and aci. In fact, the use of such cement for the plaster and aci (wall coverings with a mixture of cement and water) process can reduce the quality of building walls.

According to Mr. Joni, GM Product Management of PT Mortar Cipta Utama, the process of plaster and aci should use special made cement, such as Mortar Utama Weber MU-200 SkimWall. In addition to the basic materials of cement, the latest product from Mortar Utama Weber also contains additives that have been mixed perfectly.

One of the important additives contained in the MU-200 SkimWall product is water retention. These substance can hold water on the cement mixture in order not to evaporate too quickly, thus facilitating the process of application and also avoiding cracks in the walls.

Another advantage of this product is the resulting wall will have a low porosity (small cavites on a surface), so it will not absorb paint materials. Low porosity levels allow the walls to be painted without going through the plamir (base paint to flatten the walls to be painted) process first and can save paint materials up to 33%.

Besides to the various advantages already mentioned above, Mr. Joni added that the use of MU-200 SkimWall cement makes the walls can be painted within seven days and produce maximum paint color.
