  1. Surface preparation - bonded application

    ▪ Ensure that surfaces are not subjected to rising damp
    ▪ Surfaces must be clean and free of dust, release agent, fungi. All unsound areas, flaky or peeling layers must be removed
    ▪ Primed with MEP®. PRIM PLUS and allowed to dry 1 to 4h (“touch dry”). Very porous surfaces may need to be primed twice. If the screed is applied in more than one layer, each layer must be primed

    Surface preparation – floating application (in accordance with DTU 26.2)
    ▪ For floating application MEP®. CHAPE FLUID must be laid on an isolating film made up of polythene sheets or a similar material in order to allow for movement between the screed and the existing surface
    ▪ Fix the isolating film so that the strips overlap by at least 15 cm and are joined by an adhesive tape
    ▪ Arrange the level marks
    Notes: New floors must be allowed to cure for minimum periods to ensure that movement due to shrinkage does not affect the screed

  2. Product Application

    Mixing ratio: 3.75 lts water per 25 kg bag
    Manual application
    ▪ Gradually add the powder into the required water quantity while mixing to avoid lumps forming
    ▪ Mix thoroughly using a low speed mixer to a creamy/liquid consistency
    ▪ Allow mix to gel for 2 min and then remix before use
    ▪ Perform a flow test
    ▪ Pour the fresh screed onto the primed surface taking care that wet edges are in contact
    ▪ Once level, use a “de-airing” bar to help the migration of air and to assist the self-smoothing process

  3. Pumped application

    ▪ Use mortar pumps - refer to the manufacturer’s instructions
    ▪ Gradually add the powder into the required water quantity and mix to a creamy/liquid consistency
    ▪ Perform a flow test
    ▪ Pump the fresh screed taking care that wet edges are in contact
    ▪ Once level, use a “de-airing” bar to help the migration of air and to assist the self-smoothing process

  4. NB: Never add more water to the mix. Should the mortar stiffen up due to delays in application then discard the product and mix a fresh batch.
    It is important to add only the specified amount of water as excess water will reduce strength, increase shrinkage and encourage segregation

  5. Allowance of movement

    ▪ 5mm perimeter joints are compulsory - Walls and any upstands (pillars, columns etc) should be isolated
    ▪ Movement joints should be incorporated to allow for slight movements as indicated by DTU 26.2

  6. LIMITATION

    ▪ Do not use as a floor finish - not to be left without a suitable floor covering
    ▪ Do not use on surface subject to rising damp
    ▪ Do not use on areas that do not allow the flow of rainwater
    ▪ Not design for industrial application

  7. RECOMMANDATIONS

    ▪ Saw cut joint – must comply with DTU 26.2
    ▪ All movement joints – must be extend in the screed
    ▪ The fresh screed must be protected from direct sunlight and drafts

  8. PRACTICAL INFORMATIONS

    ▪ Packaging: 25kg triple-ply paper bags
    ▪ Handling and storage: 6 months if kept in a dry cool place in the original packaging
    In more extreme conditions this period might be shortened
    ▪ Tools: Mortar pump, Low speed mixer, trowel, spiked roller, “de-airing” bar
