Hydrobond Screed



Hydrobond Screed is a polymer based, cementitious screed, comprising primer and trowel applied topping which is designed for areas subject to heavy duty industrial use.

Hydrobond Screed  provides a highly durable continuous floor surface which can be efficiently laid over suitably prepared new or existing floors.  A standard and fast set grade is available.  For specific advice and product information contact Technical Services  0121-520-0888

Typical Uses

Hydrobond Screed is suitable for use in areas subject to regular foot traffic, heavy wheeled traffic and frequent heavy impact.

As Hydrobond Screed is waterproof, it can be used on suspended floors and in basements to prevent water passage.  It has proved very effective for applications in garages, pub cellars, maintenance depots, light industrial factories, engineering workshops, aircraft hangers and locations where lubrication oils and greases are often spilled.

Benefits of Hydrobond Screed

  • Hardwearing, Heavy Duty Screed

Application Instructions

Protect all components from frost during shipment and storage and discard damaged or open containers.  Information on the  Water Dispersible (WD) Epoxy Primer is available on a separate technical datasheet.


The concrete surfaces must be thoroughly clean and laitance free when the topping is applied. Very old, badly contaminated floors can be prepared by mechanical scabbling, removing the top 1.5 mm to 3.0 mm of the surface.  Alternatively degreasing crystals, followed by etching with hydrochloric acid solution will often be adequate.  With new concrete, the flooring can be applied as soon as the surface is sufficiently cured to withstand foot traffic, provided all laitance has been removed.

Note: Hydrobond Screed is not suitable for application onto sand/cement screeds, which have no integral strength.


Standard Primer Measures are available for the correct proportion of bulk materials on site. One measure (5.0 Kg) of Primer Powder is mixed with one measure (2.5 Kg) of Primer Syrup using a slow speed electric drill and paddle.

Screed – The only measure required is a Syrup measure (5.0 Kg) Syrup should be placed into a suitable mechanical mixer and 2 x 25.0 Kg bags of Powder slowly added to it. The two components are to be mixed for 2 – 3 minutes after the addition of the Powder.   DO NOT OVERMIX.


Standard Primer – Approximately 12 hours before the system is to be applied the substrate should be thoroughly soaked with clean, fresh water. Before priming again soak the substrate with clean, fresh water and remove any standing water.  Apply a generous coating of the mixed primer using either a stiff broom, tar brush or suitable alternative.

Screed – The mixed screed should be applied to the freshly primed surface using 12 mm battens to gauge the thickness and trowelled to the required finish. Trowelling should be carried out with a steel float, kept damp (NOT WET) by dipping in water as screeding progresses.  The finished surface should not be highly polished but possess a degree of slip resistance.  Avoid tearing the surface skin which forms after initial trowelling.

NOTE:  Hydrobond screed must not be applied at temperatures below 5 oC.
