Sikafloor 20 PurCem is a multi-component, resin rich, smooth trowel grade, coloured polyurethane modified, cement and aggregate screed suitable for floors subject to heavy loading, abrasion and chemical exposure. It has a textured aggregate surface providing medium to heavy profile slip resistance and is typically installed at 6 to 9mm thick.

Uses: In areas subject to heavy loading, abrasion and high chemical exposure, to provide a hard wearing surface, such as in:

  • Food processing plants, in wet or dry process areas, freezers and coolers, thermal shock areas
  • Chemical plants
  • Laboratories
  • Workshops
  • Suitable for concrete protection providing physical resistance (Principle 5, method 5.1 of EN 1504-9)
  • Suitable for concrete protection providing chemical resistance (Principle 6, method 6.1 of EN 1504-9)

Features and Benefits:

  • Fluid consistency requires less labour to install than conventional heavy duty modified PU trowel grade screeds
  • Excellent chemical resistance.  Resists a wide range of organic and inorganic acids, alkalis, amines, salts and solvents.
  • Similar coefficient of thermal expansion to concrete, allowing movement with the substrate through normal thermal cycling. It will perform and retain its physical characteristics through a wide temperature range from -40°C (-40°F) up to +160°C (320°F)
  • Steam cleanable at 9mm thick
  • Bond strength in excess of the tensile strength of concrete. Concrete will fail first
  • Non taint, odourless
  • VOC free
  • High mechanical resistance.
  • Slip resistance. Natural textured surface provides anti-slip traction
  • High abrasion resistance
  • Rapid one step application. Normally, no concrete primer or sealer required
  • Can be applied on to 7 to 10 day old concrete after adequate preparation and with a tensile bond strength in excess of 1.5 MPa (218 psi)
  • Seamless, no additional expansion joints are necessary; simply maintain and extend existing expansion joints up through the Sikafloor PurCem flooring system
  • Easily maintained
  • Wide range of application temperatures +10°C - +40°C
