12 months in sealed containers.
7. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
7.1 Preparation: 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 ‘grit’ blasting or at the very least wire brushing. Best results can be obtained by the use of the appropriate Antel cleaner.
Due to the porosity of substrates having an effect on the structure of self smoothing systems, it is important to apply a primer to the substrate in order to seal it. Antel’s Self Smoothing Floor Screed Primer has been especially developed for this purpose.
7.2 Mixing: Stir the B Pack. Empty the entire contents of A Pack 1, A Pack 2 & B Pack into the bucket (as supplied) and mix with drill and paddle for 3 minutes. Slowly add powder C Pack 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 two coats of the Antel Self Smoothing 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 2 mm.
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.

Mr John S
I would like to thank Julian and the team at Antel for all their help and guidance enabling a total novice like myself to install the epoxy resin self levelling flooring. The instructions from Julian and recommendations in regards to tools and laying the flooring were invaluable and enabled me to achieve a showroom like finish which i am extremely pleased with. The level of support I received is something that you rarely see these days, be it by phone or email Julian was able to guide me through all my mini challenges and give me the confidence to achieve the results I did with just the help of my wife.
I can’t reinforce enough the guidance I received from Julian in being organised, prepared and follow the instructions fully !!
Thanks again Julian and Antel, great results and wouldn’t hesitate to use you again

Three years ago i bought some of your white floor resin for use in my house and it is fantastic, it was easy to apply and looks as good today as when it went down.
