GEV = Association for the Control of Emissions in Products for Flooring Installation. EMICODE = Emission Code EC1 = Very Low Emission EC2 = Low Emission EC3 = Not Low Emission


For smoothing and levelling 0.5 - 5 mm in one application
especially for smoothing and levelling concrete and cement/sand screeds low dust generation during mixing free-flowing pumpable comply with DIN 18354 & JC/T 985-2005 standard

Thomsit DD is a standard smoothing and levelling compound for mineral based subfloors, especially cement/sand screed and concrete. Can be applied 0.5 - 5 mm in one application. Especially suitable for pump application. Roller castor resistant >1mm. Suitable for use over underfloor heating. Thomsit DD is not recommended as a wearing surface. For interior use only.

Special cement with selected additives. Very low emission GEV EMICODE EC1 certified product. Set to foot traffic in approximately 5 hours.

The substrate must be free from structural defects, sound i.e. of adequate compressive and tensile strength, permanently dry and free from laitance, dust, surface treatments or contamination, which would impair the bond of the Thomsit product(s). It may be necessary to mechanically prepare the surface of the substrate. Substrate requirements: Strength C15; surface hardness > 1.2MPa; humidity of subfloor 4% Ensure the correct Thomsit primer is selected prior to the application of this product if in doubt please contact Thomsit Technical Services.

Thomsit DD must be mixed in a clean container with clean water (6.0 ltrs to 25 kg bag of powder). Mix with a drill and suitable attachment. Mix to a lump-free consistency. Wait for 2-3 minutes and mix again for 1 minute. Apply the product to the required thickness using a suitable finishing trowel. Alternatively, Thomsit DD can be applied with a proprietary continuous feed mixer pump. . Avoid drafts and direct sunlight. Warm ambient conditions, warm powder and/or mixing water will reduce the working and setting times; conversely, in cold conditions working and setting times will be extended. When applying above 5 mm (in one application), substitute with either Thomsit DX (0.5 10 mm), or Thomsit DE 95 (3 40 mm).
