ARMADUR S is pre-blended cementitious fireproof powder mixture, containing selected mineral hard aggregates, sulphate resistant cements and compatible admixtures.
ARMADUR S is used to create very durable topping of monolithic concrete floors. Immediately after usual fitting of the concrete slab ARMADUR S is sprinkled on the fresh wet concrete. Repeated power trowelling forms durable, smooth and non–slip surface. ARMADUR S topping provides increased resistance to the penetration of oil and grease.
Industrial floors with ARMADUR S dry shake topping are extensively used in areas where salt and sulphate resistance is required, in warehouses, factories, etc. and generally everywhere, where durable and abrasion resistant surface is required.

METHOD OF USE
ARMADUR S should be spread and screeded evenly onto the freshly laid concrete slab in one or two stages, the total amount of the material being 5 kg/m2. For an area of lighter loads reduction of the ARMADUR S amount to 3 kg/m2 is possible. After removing or evaporating bleed water from the fresh wet and fully compacted concrete the first adequate part of the powder (2.5 kg/m2, or 1.5 kg/m2) should be shake-applied evenly onto the screeded slab. The first stage should be worked into the substrate followed immediately with shaking of the second portion (2.5 kg/m2). To achieve final mechanical properties of the topping using powered trowel machines is essential. Repeated powerfloating should follow the gradual hardening of concrete. Finished floor should be cured and sealed with FLOORSEAL in the typical amount of 0.10 - 0.15 l/m2. This clear solution gives the surface additional hardening, prevents dusting and rapidly reduces liquid absorption. In accordance with the specification of slab design, joints should be created in 24 hours after completion of the floor. All joints always reach through the entire topping layer.
As a common phenomenon of repeated power trowelling, which brings tension into the surface, some very fine cracks may appear on the floor surface. This observable fact is typical for all power trowelled concrete surfaces and bears no influence on beneficial properties of the floor.
