Antel Epoxy Primer is required in the application of this product. We also recommend Antel Epoxy Cleaning Solvent to clean any tools used during application.
Epoxy Self Smoothing Floor Screed / Self Levelling Compound
Antel Epoxy Self Smoothing Flooring Screed has been developed typically for areas where optimum chemical resistance combined with decorative effect is required. By using the most up to date in solvent free technology Antel self smoothing system will produce an easily cleaned, non toxic, chemically spill resistant floor with good colour and colour retention.
Commonly used in; laboratories, hospitals, chemical factories, dog kennels and garages to produce a decorative performance self levelling floor system.
Three pack system consisting of “A” “B” and “C”, aggregate, resin and hardener. It can be supplied in 10 kg. and 25 kg. packs.
Typically grey, although specific colours can be produced upon special request.
Note: When ordering quantities over 5, your order will be custom made for you, therefore we won't be able to accept returns because of a change of mind.
5. USAGE RATE
25kg laid at 2mm will cover approximately 6-7² metres.
6. SHELF LIFE
12 months in sealed containers.
7. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Surfaces must be dry and free from all foreign matter such as dust, grease and dirt etc. Weak laitance and loose or flaking material must be removed by wire brushing. In severe cases, grit blasting may be required. If oil/grease contamination is present, degrease with an industrial degreaser and wash the surface to remove. Allow to dry until the moisture content is below 5% - measured with a protometer.
The porosity of substrates have an effect on the structure of self smoothing systems. Air trapped in the substrate can migrate to the surface and then try to push through the finished screed in its semi-cured state. As a result, numerous small craters on the surface may become visible. It is important to apply a primer to the substrate in order to seal it and stop any air migrating. In highly porous substrates, it is recommended that two coats of primer are applied. Antel's Self Smoothing Floor Screed Primer has been especially developed for this purpose.
Stir the "B" Pack. Empty the entire contents of Pack "B" into Pack "A" and mix with drill and paddle for 3 minutes. Pour the combined mix in to the bucket (as supplied). Slowly add Pack "C" while mixing continuously. Finally. stir for a further 3 minutes to obtain a smooth free flowing mix. Pour immediately. Do not allow the aggregate to settle before pouring.
Once mixed Antel Self-Smoothing Floor Screed can generate a lot of heat. Storing the material in a cool place and applying in cooler conditions will reduce the amount of heat generated and result in the best possible finish.
Having allowed the previously applied Antel Self-levelling Floor Primer to cure, pour the compound on to the substrate and spread out using a squeegee/float before using a ‘spiked’ roller, which not only aids movement of the compound but aids de-aeration also. Apply at a thickness of between 2-3mm. Always add successive mixes to a wet edge.
IMPORTANT - We strongly recommend wearing spiked shoes so that a spiked roller can be used across the entire area while still wet. Failure to do this may result in a subpar finish.
Pot life 160g mix @ 25°C = 25 minutes
Thin film set time @ 25°C = 7 hours
@ 10°C = 23 hours
Full cure schedule 2 - 7 days at ambient temperature.
7.5 Overcoating: Further protection can be obtained by using one of a selection of Antel floor paints.
7.6 Cleaning tools: Immediately after use, tools should be cleaned with Antel cleaning solvent.
