DIVISION 11 SECTION 11600 FLOOR TREAMENT AND SURFACING

A.

Placing of Base Concrete The base concrete should have a minimum cement content of 320 Kg/M3. Free water to cement ratio of 0.50 (Max) and 0.40 (Min) is required and the ideal slump of 75 mm to 100 mm is required to minimize segregation and bleeding of concrete. The base concrete should be levelled and vibrated. The surface shall be floated with a wooden float ensuring that it is closed. Any bleed water shall be removed. MASTERTOP 300 is ideally applied to the surface which is not too wet nor too dry.

B.

Surfacing by MASTERTOP 300 B.1 Description MASTERTOP 300 is a ready to use blend of a synthetic mineral aggregates and cement which is applied as a dryshakes to the surface of fresh concrete slabs. MASTERTOP 300 is consist of non-metallic, inert high quality synthetic mineral aggregates, proprietary chemical, pigments and cement. B.2 Advantages 1. 2. Wear, abrasion and impact resistance are superior. Applied monolithically to fresh concrete and will form an integral part of the floor surface and will not delaminate or peel. Available in a range of colors (Light grey, dark grey, red, ivory). Easy and economical to apply. Non-oxidizing, and slip resistant finish can be obtained. Curing work can be done by application of Masterkure 121 or either covering by polythylene sheets.

B.3

Application of Mastertop 300 Using a raised trestle which spans the slabs, the Mastertop 300 is broadcast by hand on to the wet concrete surface. The application is carried out in 2 stages. 1. The first application is made using 2 / 3 of the required material to the concrete surface ensuring uniform distribution. When the materials become uniformly dark by the absorption moisture from the concrete surface, the first application can be floated, ensuring materials becomes integral part of the surface. The remaining materials is thrown evely on the surface. Again, wait until materials had obtained a darker color before floating with a wooded float. If the surface is sufficiently firm enough to take the weight of the foot traffic, Mastertop 300 should be finished off by means of a power float.

2.

B.4

Coverage The coverage of the materials depend on the use of the flooring. Application rate should comply with the coverage as recommended. Light and medium duty Heavy duty Joints (Expansion) 5 to 6 Kg / M2 7 to 9 Kg / M2 1.5 Kg/ Lenear meter in 8 cm strips

B.5

Packing MASTERTOP 300 is supplied in a sealed 25 Kg bag.

B.6

Precaution (During Application) 1. Dry shake application should not take place in direct sunlight or when hot winds are blowing. This will avoid "bread crusting" occurring on top 5 - 10 mm of surface dries while concrete beneath is still wet. This often result in tearing of the surface when travelling. As any concrete slab or bay, curing is of paramount importance and should take place immediately upon completion of finishing.
