    • Preparation
      • Substrate requirements

        The substrate must be firm, dimensionally stable, capable of bearing loads and free of loose constituents, dust, oil, grease, rubber marks and other substances that could interfere with adhesion.

        The tensile strength of the surface of the substrate must be at least 1.5 N/mm² on average (smallest individual value of at least 1.0 N/mm²), and the compressive strength must be at least 25 N/mm².

        The substrate can be slightly most but without liquid film on the surface and should not be exposed to major temperature swings (vapour pressure). In this case the primer must always be applied twice.

        Concretemax. 6 m% moisture

        Cement screedmax. 6 m% moisture

        The substrate must be protected from exposure to moisture from underneath during utilisation.

        The suitability of the coating on steel, stainless steel, aluminium, ceramic covers must be tested beforehand, if necessary trial surfaces must be set up.

      • Preparations

        Prepare the substrate by suitable means, e.g. steel ball jetting or diamond grinding, so that it meets the requirements specified above.

        Broken out or missing areas in the substrate should be filled flush with the surface using Remmers PCC systems or Remmers EP mortars.

        Bonded screed:

        Prime the surface with a suitable primer, such as Remmers Epoxy ST 100, and broadcast it generously with Quartz 07/12 (approx. 2 kg/m²).

        Alternatively, it is possible to work wet-on-wet.

        Pour the material onto the prepared surface and spread using a suitable tool, e.g. a notched trowel.

        Screed on separation layer/insulating layer:

        The separation layer/insulation layer must be suitable for the use in question. In this application case, no primer is needed.

        The current technical regulations must be observed.

    • Preparation
      • Combination container

        Add the entire quantity of the hardener (component B) to the base compound (component A).

        Mix thoroughly with a slow-speed electric mixer
        (approx. 300 - 400 rpm).

        Pour the mixture into a separate container and mix again thoroughly.

        Mix for at least 3 minutes.

        Insufficient mixing is indicated by streaks forming.

    • Application
      • Application requirements

        Temperature of material, surroundings and substrate: min. +8 °C - max. +30 °C.

      • As a general principle, higher temperatures will reduce and lower temperatures will increase the times stated.

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • Smoothing trowel, toothed trowel, toothed squeegee, rubber squeegee, epoxy roller, spiked roller, mixing equipment, if necessary a positive mixer.

      • More detailed information can be found in the Remmers Tool Programme.

        Clean tools, equipment and splashed material immediately while fresh with V 101 Thinner.

        Take suitable protective and waste disposal measures when cleaning.

    • Storage / shelf life
      • If stored unopened in its original container in a cool, dry place and protected against frost, the product will keep for at least 24 months.

    • Usage
      • See application examples

    • Application examples
      • Leveling layer / Roughness compensation

        The filled material (up to 1 : 1 parts by weight) is applied to the primed surface and distributed with a suitable trowel. If necessary, roll over with a spiked roller.

        Per mm of base layer thickness: approx. 0.85 kg/m² of binder and 0.85 kg/m² of Selectmix 01/03

      • Epoxy mortar

        The filled material (up to 1 : 10 parts by weight) is distributed with a smoothing trowel and smoothed.

        Bonded screed from 10 mm: After the material has been mixed with filler in a ratio of up to 1:20 parts per weight, distribute it and level it off, then compact and work the material by smoothing until an even surface is achieved.

        Screed on separation layer/insulation layer > 30 mm: After the material has been mixed with filler in a ratio of up to 1:25 parts per weight, distribute it and level it off, then compact and work the material by smoothing until an even surface is achieved.

        Per mm of layer thickness: approx. 0.2 kg/m² of binder and 2.0 kg/m² of Selectmix 25 Bonded screed from 10 mm: Per mm of layer thickness: approx. 0.1 kg/m² of binder and 2.0 kg/m² of suitable filler Screed on separation layer/insulating layer > 30 mm: Per mm of layer thickness: approx. 0.08 kg/m² of binder and approx. 2.0 kg/m² of suitable filler

      • Primer

        Apply the mixed resin generously to the surface. Distribute with a suitable tool, e.g. rubber blade, and work into the substrate with an epoxy roller so that pores in the surface of the substrate are completely filled.

        Approx. 0.30 - 0.50 kg/m² of binder (depending on the substrate)

      • Base layer for blinding layer

        The filled material (up to 1 : 1 parts by weight) is applied to the primed surface and distributed with a suitable toothed trowel or toothed rubber blade. If necessary, roll over with a spiked roller.

        Then liberally broadcast fire-dried quartz sand over the base layer while it is still fresh.

        Remove any loose, surplus sand after hardening.

        Per mm of base layer thickness: approx. 0.85 kg/m² of binder and 0.85 kg/m² of Selectmix 01/03

    • General information
      • Unless otherwise specified, all of the values and application rates given above have been determined under laboratory conditions (20 °C). Slight deviations from these values may arise if the product is worked with on site.

        Primers must always be applied so that all pores are filled; it may therefore be necessary to increase the application rate or to apply a second coat.

        When coating continuous surfaces, only use materials with the same batch number as slight differences in colour, gloss and texture may occur.

        Abrasive mechanical loads leave traces of wear.

        Epoxy resins are generally not colourfast when exposed to UV light or weather.

        Further notes on working, system construction and maintenance of the listed products can be found in the latest Technical Data Sheets and the Remmers system recommendations.

        The compressive and flexural strength of the screed on separation layers/insulating layers are highly dependent on the proportion of filler and binder used. Adapt these proportions according to the application at hand.

        The worksheet BEB KH 505 from the German Federal Association of Screed and Floor Covering must be observed.

        Covering the surface (e.g. with foil) significantly extends the time it takes for the material to be ready to be covered.

        When using screed sand, the working properties and the strengths that can be achieved are highly dependent on the specific composition of the local screed sand and must be tested in advance.
