Stucco Grano Floor Screed
Stucco Grano Floor Screed is a self leveling cement based floor coating manufactured in many UV stable natural earthy colours used on floors, walls, counter tops, shower surrounds, facades,etc. Applied onto new or old concrete floors which are 100% sound and clean. Hard wearing, mottled, natural homogenous wall or floor coating.
Stucco Grano Floor Screed requires an optimum bond to concrete floor substrates to occur, therefore concrete floor substrate must be cleaned thoroughly free of floor tiles, ceramic tiles, paint, wood floor, vinyl tiles, sealers, grime, bitumen, dust, dirt, fungal growth, oil and mould to name a few.
In the case of application onto polished smooth steel troweled floors and walls, the surface must be acid washed or scarified or a slurry applied containing bonding agents to it, prior to application in order to promote adhesion.
In the case of its use as wall coating ensure its applied in shaded, windless areas so that the product has a chance to set/cure without drying prematurely or alternatively keep it lightly moisten to aid correct curing.
Stucco Grano Floor Screed is mixed 4 or 5 parts of powder to 1 part clean water by volume, in a clean bucket with a flat paddle or stirrer on low speed , as a guide, resulting in a thick caramel/honey like slurry.
Apply the entire mixed product within 1 hour of mixing.
Trowel/polish smooth before drying as with any screed or lightly moisten to aid doing so.
Do not add more water or powder to the mix after mixing is completed.
Stucco Grano Floor Screed is leveled and spread using a plastic\steel trowel.
A thin scratch coat by brush or by scraping trowel onto substrate with Stucco Grano Floor Screed may be applied and left to dry prior to application to prevent aeration during application.
Apply to a moistened but not wet floor or wall, to promote adhesion and ensure mixture is not dehydrated by substrate on application.
Always apply from edge to edge per panel at a time working with a wet edge to continue work so as not to have any dry joints in panel occurring.
Allow +/- 3 to 6 hours to set, depending on thickness, optionally re-moisten periodically to promote curing and achieve higher mpa hardness.
Stucco Grano Floor Screed may be applied as a dry shake but this will affect the resulting colour, due to it mixing with freshly poured concrete base its applied onto.
If applied in direct sunlight or windy conditions lightly moisten to aid and ensure proper curing. Seal bone dry Stucco Grano Floor Screed with two coats of Stucco Grano Sealer matt/gloss for floors and walls to achieve the desired finish or Stucco Acrylic Sealer matt for wall applications.
Do not apply in temperatures of less than 5C or over 30C as well as if frost or rain is eminent for exterior applications
Store only in a cool dry area, 10cms away from walls and floors on wooden slates to prevent condensation occurring within the sealed package.
Stucco Grano Floor Screed covers +_ 8 square meters per 25kg bag depending on spread at a thickness of 2mm. Thicker applications would use more product.
As with all trully natural products, shade and tone colour variations may occur .Test product on sample area prior to use as we will not accept any liability in any shape or form for any damages whatsoever as product is used outside of our control.
