ASCOSCREED is a specially formulated non shrink, fast-setting, easy-spread, high strength and self-curing concentrated cement binder. ASCOSCREED is mixed proportionally with appropriate sand and water, provides a shrinkage-free mortar bed and oor underlayment leveling screed that can be easily poured or pumped. ASCOSCREED binder is to create high performance base of screed before any type of tile/stone ooring.

All surfaces must be clean, dry and free from any contaminates such as dust, oil, wax, grease, curing agents or other substances that may affect adhesion performance. If it is a large area, the surface should be treated by mechanical preparation by grinding or shot blasting. Building debris such as off cuts, sawdust, nails, screws, plaster, wood etc., must be thoroughly cleaned with the help of wire brush - vacuum cleaner - damp sponge.
Trials should always be carried out to optimize the mix design before work commences. The quality of river sand should be graded and approved. The screed is a blend of ASCOSCREED, sand, & water. The mix proportions depend on the availability of local sand. A typical screed mix would be 20/60 Kg of ASCOSCREED, 60/150 Kg of sand with added clean water to achieve the desired semi-dry consistency. All materials should be adequately mixed to ensure full dispersion of materials without lumps.
Do not over-water and protect from rain, weather and freezing until cured (24 hours). Protect from foot trafc for at least 3-6 hours at normal room temperature and humidity conditions. Protect from dirt, dust and damage from other trades until fully covered by a oor covering or tiling material. Note: Drying time may vary depending on prevailing temperature and humidity conditions.
Clean mixer, working tools and hands with water while product is still fresh.
