Features & Benefits


}}Toughness High compressive strength resists heavy-duty movements of heavily loaded trolleys.
}}Impact resistance High impact strength prevents denting and point loading.
}}Abrasion resistance High abrasion resistance make suitable for movements of heavily loaded vehicular traffic.
}}Chemical resistance Resistant to wide range of industrial chemicals, prevents erosion of concrete floors.
}}Water resistance Resistant to all types of water, soap & detergent solutions.
}}Thermal shock resistance Resistant to thermal shock, enables floor to be hygienically steam cleaned without
cracking.
}}Anti skid property - Provides safe, textured slip-resistant surface for pedestrian and vehicular traffic even
when wet.
}}Workability Suitable to build up thickness up to 1.5 5 mm in one application.
}}Durability It is highly durable when applied over internal floors unless otherwise damaged by mechanical
means & highly aggressive chemicals.
}}Over coatability over coating of epoxy / polyurethane based coatings are possible.

}}Coving - Can be used in preparation of perimeter edge coving up to a height of 225mm.

Joint Design
}}Expansion & moving joints are to be brought over through subsequent flooring system & sealed with properly
selected sealants.
}}All other stable joints (dummy joints, etc.) are to be filled up prior to lay the screed as per the designed thickness.
}}Joints should be cleaned and prepared as per the instruction of technical team.

membrane should be installed during construction.


}}Substrates should not have a relative humidity greater than 80% at the time of installation.

2 PRIMING
}}Apply one coat of Dr. Fixit Pidipoxy EP primer with a brush or roller over prepared surface. Allow the primer to
reach tacky condition (3 - 4 hours)
3 MIXING
}}Mix resin base with hardener using a static blade rotary drum mixer for 2 - 3 minutes. Then start addition of
aggregates component slowly slowly & mix for another 3 minutes to produce uniform & homogeneous plaster
consistency material.
4 A P P L I C AT I O N
Dr. Fixit Epoxy Floor Screed should be installed by specialist applicators that must follow the product
application procedure as per the technical data sheet.
}}Overlay mixed Dr. Fixit Epoxy Floor Screed over the primed surface when it is in tacky condition.
}}It is ideal to work in lanes of 2 to 3 ft. width for effective leveling & toweling.
}}Spread it uniformly to the desired thickness.

5 FINISHING
}}Use a wooden float to compact the material fully. Smooth & level the compacted material by using steel trowel.
}}Use proper templates to maintain the desired compacted thickness at all areas.
}}Dr. Fixit Epoxy Floor Screed should be over-coated with either coating or topping to prevent it from dust
accumulation.
}}It is recommended that Dr. Fixit Epoxy Floor Screed be cured for 7 days @ 35C or 12 days @ 20C prior to being
subject to in service conditions or any final coat on top.
6 C L E A N I N G
}}Clean tools and equipment with solvent like toluene / xylene / thinner immediately after use.
}}Hardened material can be removed only mechanically.

Precautions & Limitations


}}Ensure that proper vapour barrier is placed below concrete substrate.
}}Surface moisture content of the concrete substrate should be less than 5%.
}}Substrate temperature should be 5C above the measured due point.
}}In case of acid cleaning, neutralize the substrate with plenty of water (litmus paper test) & then check the
moisture level when it is dry.
}}It is essential & suggested that clean the spillage of chemicals over the coating surface immediately to increase
the life of the coating.
}}Material should be mixed and laid within pot life at 30OC
}}Part mixing of material is not recommended
