Suitable for use in schools, hospitals, public buildings, factories, on fire escapes, stairways, entrances, loading ramps, machine surrounds, etc. Durafloor Anti-Slip Grains give a pleasant black speckling and glittering sparkle on the finished surface. Durafloor Anti-Slip Grains are specifically designed for sprinkle on applications to suitably prepared concrete floor surfaces, either monolithically (on a new concrete slab), or with a suitable floor screed. Advantages „ Maximum slip resistance compared to many other floor hardener aggregates „ Non-staining „ Chemically resistant „ Suitable for use on wet surfaces „ Slip resistance increases with use „ Gives an aesthetically pleasing surface finish „ Reduces maintenance Description Durafloor Anti-Slip Grains are high purity, chemically treated, silicon carbide grains which have been ground and milled to give a specific shape and screen grading to ensure thorough bonding with the Portland Cement concrete surface mix. Durafloor Anti-Slip Grains are shaped as such that they are not liable to break up under traffic conditions and become detached from the cement surface. Technical Support Parchem offers a comprehensive range of high performance, high quality flooring, jointing and repair products for both new and existing floor surfaces. In addition, the company offers a technical support package to specifiers, end-users and contractors, as well as on-site technical assistance. Design Criteria Durafloor Anti-slip Grains are applied as a single dry shake application in the aggregate form (as received), to a compacted, screeded and floated concrete base prepared by either the monolithic or topping method. Properties Aggregate Virgin Silicon Carbide graded and acid washed. Hardness (modified): 13 Moh’s Scale November 2013 Page 1 2480 Knoop 100 Chemical analysis SiC: >92% Colour: Black Grain shape: Angular Crystallography: Alpha Sizing (normal): 0.5 mm (– 5% max.) to 1.4 mm (– 5% max.) Specification Clauses Anti-slip floor finish The floor finish shall be Durafloor Anti-Slip Grains applied at a rate not less than 0.5 kg/m². Application Instructions Refer to Durafloor Anti-Slip Grains Application Guidelines for details on how to use, and for essential precautions. Limitations Refer to Durafloor Anti-Slip Grains Application Instructions for limitations of this product. Estimating Supply 412020 - Durafloor Anti-Slip Grains: 20 kg bag Coverage Durafloor Anti-slip Grains: 0.5 kg/m² The coverage figures given are theoretical - due to wastage factors and the variety and nature of possible substrates, practical coverage figures will be reduced. Storage Shelf life If kept in original, undamaged, packaging the shelf life of Durafloor Anti-Slip Grains should be at least 12 months. November 2013
