Flowscreed is a three-component coloured epoxy resin mortar for application to industrial floors which are subject to heavy traffic and light chemical attack. Flowscreed is trowel applied at 4 - 6 mm or above and can therefore be used to repair badly damaged concrete floors.

Flowscreed is ideal for floors where a high level of abrasion resistance is required such as production and packaging areas, industrial manufacturing and storage areas, engineering workshops, warehouses and aerospace and automotive industries.

Appearance

Lightly textured coloured finish with a speckled appearance (unsealed)

Components in the system:

  • Resin
  • Hardener
  • Aggregate component

Substrates

Concrete and polymer-modified sand/cement screeds.

Thickness

Typically 4 - 6 mm.

Specification Detail

1. Flowprime T.C. 200-300g/m² depending on porosity.

2. Flowscreed 2kg/m² per 1mm thickness.

3. Flowgrout 250g/m²

4. Topcoat (a choice from the Virtus range of coatings)

Coverage

Approximately 2 kg/ is required per 1 mm thickness. For example, at 4 mm thickness of 8 kg/m² is required plus wastage.

Curing Times

Overcoating time for seal coats is 12 hours. Foot traffic is 24 hours, heavy traffic is 72 hours and full cure is 7 days.

Priming

Flowscreed should be applied into tacky Flowprime TC (typically 45 - 60 minutes after application). If prior to the application of Flowscreed, there are dry patches, a further primer coat is required. If the primer has been left to cure for >48 hours then the primer surface should be mechanically abraded and the area re-primed. If the substrate relative humidity exceeds 75%, Flowprime DPM should be used and allowed to cure prior to the use of Flowprime TC.

Sealing

Flowscreed requires sealing, especially when used in wet environments. Apply Flowgrout SF to the cured Flowscreed mortar to fully grout and seal the surface. When cured, overcoat with the appropriate finish coat. A choice of seal coats from the Virtus range can be applied as the final finish.

Surface Preparation:

Inadequate preparation will lead to loss of adhesion and failure. Substrates should be clean, dry, sound and free of surface laitance. See the Virtus Guide to Surface Preparation for further information.

Priming:

Flowscreed should be applied into tacky Flowprime TC (typically 45 - 60 minutes after application). If, prior to application of Flowscreed, there are dry patches, a further primer coat is required. If the primer has been left to cure for >48 hours then the primer surface should be mechanically abraded and the area re-primed. If the substrate relative humidity exceeds 75%, Flowprime DPM should be used and allowed to cure prior to the use of Flowprime TC. See separate data sheet.

Mixing & Application:

Pre-mix the coloured resin component before use. Add the hardener component to the coloured resin component and mix using a low speed electric mixer (200 - 500 rpm) for 1 - 2 minutes until homogeneous. Decant the mixture into a rotary drum mixer and add the aggregate component in stages, mixing for a minimum of 3 minutes until a uniform coloured, lump-free mix is obtained. Spread the mixture to the required thickness, compact and trowel smooth using a steel float. Avoid excessive tooling which may lead to ‘trowel burn’ or resin rich spots.

Sealing:

Flowscreed requires sealing, especially when used in wet environments. Apply Flowgrout to the cured Flowscreed mortar to fully grout and seal the surface. When cured, over-coat with the appropriate finish coat. A choice of sealcoats from the Virtus range can be applied as the final finish.

Certain colours can be made to order subject to availability.
