Solvent Free Epoxy Screed
Hydroscreed TG is a solvent free epoxy screed for application to new and existing concrete floors. It provides a smooth easily cleaned surface which is resistant to inorganic acids, alkalis, salt solutions, oils, fats, and many aggressive chemical environments.
The system consists of a primer, screed and sealer that provides a continuous seamless flooring, designed for areas subject to heavy duty industrial use. For specific chemical resistance and product information contact RJR Technical Services on 0121-520-0888
Hydroscreed TG has good chemical resistance properties and can be used for many applications in those industries where corrosive chemical attack is a problem. The material is particularly suited where conventional cementitious material cannot be used. It is widely specified in food processing areas, bakeries, breweries, manufacturing plants, pharmaceutical, chemical and heavy engineering facilities.

Surfaces must be free from dirt, laitence and any contaminants. Mechanical abrasion, such as grit blasting or scarification can be used where necessary to prepare the substrate. Note Hydroscreed TG is not suitable for application to standard sand and cement screeds as it relies on a strong, stable and sound substrate such as concrete.
Any movement joints in the base screed must be reflected in the Hydroscreed TG, including their perimeter areas and floor upstands.
It is advisable to repair any damage to substrate or rectify any incorrect falls using a polymer modified screed, such as Hydrotop, available from RONJON RESINS LTD.
Primer – Pour the primer hardener unit into the contents of the primer base and mix with a suitable paddle. Allow the mixed primer to stand for 10 minutes before application.
Screed – Mix the unit of the Hydroscreed TG base thoroughly using a slow speed electric drill to disperse the coloured pigment. Add one unit of Hydroscreed hardener and again mix with a slow speed electric drill and pour the mixture into a mechanical mixer (Rotary Drum/Static blade) and add one bag of Hydroscreed powder, mixing for around 3 to 5 minutes.
Sealer – Thoroughly mix the Urematt sealer base unit with the sealer hardener using a slow speed electric drill and suitable paddle. The Urematt sealer should be stirred well before use.
Summary – The primer layer can be applied by suitable brush or roller and the screed by rake and trowel. The sealer can be applied by trowel and squeegee or brush and roller, depending on the grade used.
Primer – Apply an even coating over the surface area. For vertical surfaces higher than skirtings use a vertical primer.
Screed – The screed layer should be applied immediately the area has been primed, while the primer is still tacky, however application must be carried out within 4 or 5 hours.
To gauge the screed thickness, 6 mm battens can be used when applying the well mixed screed, spreading evenly using metal rakes. Level off with an aluminium straight edge and finish with a trowel float. It is important that the screed is compressed using the trowel to produce a well compacted screed, but avoid over trowelling.
Sealer – Thoroughly mix the Urematt sealer base and hardener components together and apply using a brush or roller to give an even thickness. The Ureseal should be applied thinly and evenly by brush or roller, avoiding high film thickness. Any excess should be removed by using a white rubber squeegee.
Note – If the system is to be used as a liquor retentive lining, a pigmented sealer coat comprising of screed resins should be applied by brush or roller
Health and Safety
Refer to the Hydroscreed TG Health and Safety datasheet before using the product. It is advisable to wear impervious gloves when handling or applying Hydroscreed TG. Any splashes on the skin must be immediately removed by washing with soap and warm water. Do not use solvents for this purpose. Ensure adequate ventilation is available at all times, and avoid breathing vapour, using respirators in confined spaces.
It is the purchasers responsibility to ensure that the materials are stored and handled within the meaning of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
