DIRECTIONS FOR USE
SURFACE PREPARATION : Surface to receive Permacem screed should be sound, clean and free from any deleterious matter. It should be primed with water or SBR-OPC bonding slurry depending on whether it is an un-bonded or bonded screed
MIXING AND LAYING : Mix Permacem with graded sand of size 0-8 mm in the proportion of 1 : 6 by weight and add water at a dosage of about 35% by weight of Permacem in a mixer and immediately lay the screed mortar on the prepared surface and spread, level and compact it. For laying bonded screeds, first apply boning slurry prepared by mixing PERMA BOND SBR and OPC in the proportion of 1:1 by volume on the surface immediately before laying Permacem screed.
Do not use Permacem on surfaces subjected to rising dampness, In such cases waterproof the substrate first.
