Flow HS

Product description

Designed for low-strength and difficult bases, Fescon Flow HS is a fibre-reinforced, low-alkali (pH < 11), casein-free, pump-applied levelling compound with a special cement binding agent, that is easy to level and features excellent workability.

 

  • Easy to level
  • For layer thicknesses 8 - 50 mm (partial levelling 8-80 mm)
  • Dries through hydration
  • For floors with underfloor heating
  • Can be pump-applied

Applications

  • Suitable for levelling wooden floors, weak concrete floors, plasterboard floors, etc. in flats, offices, public buildings, schools, hospitals, and other such sites
  • Also suitable for solutions with floating floor structures
  • Tanker pumping is not recommended at temperatures < -25°C
The product is suitable for use on sites with a Nordic Swan Ecolabel.

Instructions

Base
  • Clean, solid and dust-free
  • Sufficient strength, load-bearing capacity and immobility
  • Relative humidity < 95% RH
  • Temperature > + 10 °C
  • Loose layers, cement paste and other impurities must be mechanically removed
  • If the adhesion strength of the base is < 0.5 MPa, the floor is constructed as a floating structure
Priming
  • Carry out the priming in accordance with Fescon Adhesive Primer instructions, depending on the base
  • The adhesive primer must be dry before levelling
Instructions for use
  • Mix a bag (20 kg) of the levelling compound in 4.0 litres of cold water
  • Do not use any more water because this decreases the surface strength
  • Mix the levelling compound carefully and long enough to make it a consistent paste
  • Apply the levelling compound with a steel trowel or pump it onto the levelled surface
  • Workable for about half an hour after adding water
  • Wash tools with water immediately after completing the work
  • When pumping, the relative humidity in the air must be >40%
Covering
  • Can be covered using ceramic tiles, plastic or textile mats, vinyl tiles, wood parquet or cork
  • The floor levelling compound (once it has dried) must not be left uncovered for a longer period than three months
After treatment
  • Once the base has dried sufficiently for the chosen flooring, the flooring is installed or the aftercare begun
  • In conditions with an RH of less than 40%, special attention should be paid to when to begin the aftercare
  • A floating structure should always be given aftercare within one day of the pumping
Introduction

Floor heating with water circulation may be started after seven days from applying the floor levelling compound. The water temperature is first set to +20°C. The final water temperature may be applied after the floor covering is installed. Higher water temperatures cause a major decrease in the strength characteristics of the floor levelling compound and an increase of it cracking, so they must be avoided at all costs.
