These figures are theoretical and do not allow for any additional material due to surface porosity, surface profile, variations in level and wastage etc.
Prior to mixing, stir part A mechanically. When all of part B has been added to part A, mix continuously for 3 minutes until a uniform mix has been achieved. When parts A and B have been mixed, add the quartz sand and if required the Extender T and mix for a further 2 minutes until a uniform mix has been achieved. To ensure thorough mixing pour materials into another container and mix again to achieve a consistent mix. Over mixing must be avoided to minimise air entrainment.
Sikafloor®-263 SL HC must be thoroughly mixed using a low speed stirrer (300 – 400 rpm) or other suitable equipment.
Prior to application, confirm substrate moisture content, r.h. and dew point. If > 4% pbw moisture content, Sikafloor® EpoCem® may be applied as a T.M.B. (temporary moisture barrier) system.
Primer Make sure that a continuous, pore free coat covers the substrate. If necessary, apply two priming coats. Apply Sikafloor®-161/160 HC by brush, roller or squeegee. Preferred application is by using a squeegee and then backrolling crosswise.
Levelling: Rough surfaces need to be levelled first. Therefore use e.g. Sikafloor®-161 HC levelling mortar (see PDS).
Wearing course smooth: Sikafloor®-263 SL HC is poured, spread evenly by means of a serrated trowel. After spreading the material evenly, turn the serrated trowel and smooth the surface in order to achieve an aesthetically higher grade of finish. Roll immediately in two directions with a spiked roller to ensure even thickness. Broadcast system: Sikafloor®-263 SL HC is poured, spread evenly by means of a serrated trowel. Then, level and remove any entrapped air with a spiked roller and after about 5 minutes (at +30 °C) but before 10 minutes (at +30 °C), broadcast with quartz sand, at first lightly and then to excess.
CLEANING OF EQUIPMENT
Clean all tools and application equipment with Thinner C immediately after use. Hardened and/or cured material can only be removed mechanically.
To maintain the appearance of the floor after application, Sikafloor®-263 SL HC must have all spillages removed immediately and must be regularly cleaned using rotary brush, mechanical scrubbers, scrubber dryer, high pressure washer, wash and vacuum techniques etc using suitable detergents and waxes.
