Applied by the shake-on method it is ideally suited for all industrial areas subject to the heaviest traffic, e.g. loading bays, trucking lanes, car parks, warehouse floors, repair workshops, machine shops, etc. Advantages „ Provides an extremely strong, hard wearing, abrasion „ Resistant to oils and greases „ Non-metallic chemically inert aggregate „ Easy and economical to apply „ Does not rust Description Nitoflor Sicaltop is a quality controlled, factory blended powder which is ready to use on-site. It consists of selected and graded silicon carbide and alumina based aggregates, Portland cement and special additives to improve workability. The formulation provides a flooring compound which is easy to trowel into the surface of a fresh, wet concrete slab. When applied at the recommended application rate Nitoflor Sicaltop provides a hard wearing, abrasion resistant surface. Silicon carbide and alumina based aggregates are extremely hard, chemically inert aggregates which resists polishing, therefore providing a non-slip, skid resistant surface even when wet. Also, being non-metallic, Nitoflor Sicaltop will not rust. Use of workability additives reduces placing time by up to 20% compared to site batched material and ensures full hydration and compaction of the shake-on wearing course.

Other colours may be produced on request for orders of sufficient quantities. Contact Parchem for further details. Care has been taken to ensure that colours manufactured under modern processes are as close as possible to samples available. However, it should be noted that no guarantee can be given of exact colour matching. Technical Support Parchem offers a technical support package to specifiers, end-users and contractors, as well as on-site technical assistance. Design Criteria Refer to ‘Nitoflor Sicaltop application guide’ when applying the integral floor hardener’ for details of concrete mix design and other factors to ensure the successful application of Nitoflor Sicaltop. Properties Compressive strength Compressive strength tests to BS 1881 part 4-1970 (Clause 2) indicate that Nitoflor Sicaltop has a compressive strength at 28 days of approximately 95 MPa. Abrasion resistance Tests on abrasion resistance have been performed by the Australian Mineral Development Laboratories. These tests, described in Report No. MT 2802/72 indicate that concrete floors treated with Nitoflor Sicaltop gave a greater than 200% improvement in abrasion resistance over the recommended dosage range compared to untreated floors. Permeability to water Simulated permeability tests under pressures of up to 340 kPa demonstrated a reduction in water permeation.
