Temafloor 3000 - Solvent-free epoxy screed

Temafloor 3000
DESCRIPTION A solvent-free epoxy-resin screed. The screed is prepared by adding sand to Temafloor P300 epoxy coating mixture.
PRODUCT FEATURES For new and old concrete floors exposed to heavy mechanical and chemical stress in industrial facilities, warehouses and repair shops; e.g. process or paper machine units, corridors and other floors subjected to high point loadings.
Recommended uses -

Features Excellent resistance to abrasion. Withstands water, oils, greases, chemicals and diluted solutions of non-oxidizing acids, alkali and salt solutions. Resists only temporary splashes of oxidizing acids and bleaching chemicals. Separate chemical resistance table available. Withstands +70ºC dry heat and +60ºC in immersion. Does not resist abrupt, great or repeated changes of temperature. Self-levelling. Can be used for floors with a max. slope of 5%. Temafloor Flex hardener makes the paint surface flexible and thus more resistant to cracking of concrete and improves the impact resistance. Reaction to fire: BFL-s1 according to EN 13501-1.
Colour Cards RAL, NCS, SSG, BS, MONICOLOR NOVA and SYMPHONY colour cards. TEMASPEED tinting.
Gloss groups Full-gloss

For a flat substrate:        1 mm layer: 1 litre ready for use screed / m2

                                     2 mm layer: 2 litres ready for use screed / m2

                                     4 mm layer: 4 litres ready for use screed / m2

Practical coverage depends on the  evenness of the substrate.
Mixing ratio Temafloor P 300 mixture:
Base 4 parts by volume 167 serie
Hardener 1 part by volume 008 4514

Temafloor P 300 Flex mixture:
Base 2 parts by volume 167 serie
Flex Hardener 1 part by volume 930 5002

Screed film thickness 1.5 - 3.0 mm
1 part by vol. Temafloor P 300 mixture
1 part by vol. sand grain size Ø 0.1 - 0.6 mm

Screed film thickness3.0 - 4.0 mm
1 part by vol. Temafloor P 300 mixture
1 part by vol. sand grain size Ø 0.1 - 0.6 mm
½ part by vol. sand grain size Ø 1.0 - 2.0 mm

25 litres of Temafloor P 300 filled with sand using the above mixing ratios give approx. 36 and 44 litres of Temafloor 3000 epoxy screed ready for use. Reduce the amount of sand, if the temperature of screed, sand and ambient air is below +20ºC.
Application method Adjustable or steel trowel or spiked roller.
Pot-life (+23°C) 20-30 minutes on substrate, approx. 15 minutes in the mixing container.
Drying time at 23°C and 50% relative air humidity

Dust dry after 6 hours

Light trucking after 24 hours

Fully cured after 7 days

At lower temperature the curing process will last longer. With Temafloor Flex hardener the curing times are a little longer than with standard hardener.
Solids volume Approx. 100 volume %
Density 1.8 - 2.0 kg / litre (mixture), depending on the grain size and amount of sand.
Product code 167 series

Application conditions The relative humidity of the concrete should not exceed 97%. The temperature of the ambient air, surface or coating should not fall below +15ºC during application or drying. Relative humidity of air should not exceed 80%.

Note! There is a natural tendency of epoxy coatings to chalk and discolor on exterior exposure.
Preparation New concrete
Remove laitance by power grinding, vacuum grit blasting or hydrochloric acid etching. Choose the method best suited for the premises. After grinding remove dust carefully with a vacuum cleaner. Hydrochloric acid etching is carried out with diluted hydrochloric acid (1 part concentrated hydrochloric acid, 4 parts water). Rinse with plenty of water. Dry the floor.

Old concrete
Remove all grease, oil, chemicals and other impurities by MAALIPESU detergent. Remove old peeling paint layer by grinding, milling or vacuum grit blasting. Choose the method best suited for the premises. Clean out pot-holes removing all loose friable material. Open cracks with e.g. an abrasive tool. Remove loose material and dust.

Cementitious levelling screed
Check compatibility with the levelling screed manufacturer.
Priming Prime using 30-50% with Thinner 1029 (or 1031) thinned Temafloor 200 Primer or 400 epoxy varnish. Pour the varnish onto the floor and apply as much as is needed to impregnate the concrete surface. If necessary, repeat priming to get a non-porous surface. Subsequent treatment can be carried out after 2 hours using "wet-on-wet" technique. A porous priming coat will result in holes and air bubbles in the finished screed.
Patching Patch pot-holes and cracks with a mixture of unthinned Temafloor 200 Primer epoxy varnish or Temafloor P 300 epoxy coating and dry, clean sand. Mixing ratio e.g. 1 part by volume of epoxy mixture and 1-2 parts by volume of sand of grain size 0.1-0.6 mm.
Diluting Do not thin Temafloor 3000 epoxy screed.
Screeding The screed may be applied not earlier than 6h (+23ºC) and not later than 24 h after priming and patching. If the primed surface is not overcoated within 24 hrs, it should be abraded. Pour the screed mixture onto the floor and spread it with an adjustable or a serrated trowel. When using a flat-bladed steel trowel, control that the thickness of layer is correct by observing screed consumption and by measuring the film thickness. Level the screed with a spiked roller approx. 10-15 min after application. Spiked roller helps removing air bubbles from the coating.
Note! Add the remaining mixture to the next batch of the screed, do not scrape it out of the container onto the floor.
Joint sealing When you apply screed on large areas, place working joints in line with pillars, expansion joints, gullies etc. Make working joints and trimmings by using a wide masking tape. Apply the screed on the masking tape and remove after levelling with a spiked roller. When continuing application mask the edge of the already hardened layer of screed and remove the tape after application and levelling with a spiked roller.
Mixing of components Mix the correct proportions of base and hardener thoroughly (approx. 2 minutes) by using a hand drill with a paddle. Add filler to the mixture mixing carefully at the same time. Use dry, clean natural or quarz sand as a filler. Wet sand will result in air bubbles and decreased gloss in the finished screed. The amount of mixture depends on the area to be coated and on the pot life of the mixture. Insufficient mixing or incorrect mixing ratio will result in uneven drying of the surface, weaken the properties of the screed and risk the success of the application.
Cleaning of tools Thinner 006 1029 or Thinner 006 1031.
