Product Features

About this Product

weberfloor 4360 base flow rapid is a pump or hand applied, self-smoothing, thick base or renovation screed for floors, which gives a extra strong base layer for receiving tiles, thin topping screeds or industrial screeds. The product is formulated from special cements, aggregates, supplementary binders and chemical admixtures.

weberfloor 4360 base flow rapid is designed for the use in residential, commercial and industrial areas allowing a much earlier overlay compared to traditional sand/ cement, concrete or anhydrite screeds. It is ideal for the renovation of existing floors and floating floor constructions. Particular where there are large irregularities in the substrate.

Features and Benefits

• For application depths between 20-80mm

• Pump or hand applied

• Rapid drying

• Foot traffic after 2-3 hours

• Tile after 12 hours

• Final floor covering installed after 1-7 days in normal conditions

• Ideal for correcting highly irregular substrates

• Low alkalinity

• Casein-free

• Low emissions

Preparation & Application

Preparation

The surface strength of the substrate must be greater than 1N/mm2 in residential or commercial areas and 1.5N/ mm2 in industrial areas.

It is essential the substrate is suitably prepared and primed with weberfloor 4716 primer prior to installing the Weber floor screed.

The substrate should be clean, free from dust, grease and other impurities that might prevent adhesion.

Walls and any upstands (pillars, columns etc) should be isolated with 10 x 100mm foam.

For large irregularities in the substrate (>80m) two applications of weberfloor 4360 base flow rapid can be used. The first layer should be allowed to harden and then primed before the second application can begin.

Holes and leaks in the substrate should be sealed. The substrate should be vacuum cleaned, prepared and primed with weberfloor 4716 primer according to the instructions on the data sheet.

Priming improves the screed's adhesion to the substrate and prevents the formation of air bubbles and dewatering of the screed. Priming also improves the flow properties of the screed. Dry and very porous substrates (cast-in-situ concrete floors) may need to be treated twice. If the screed is applied in more than one layer, each layer must be primed.

Mixing

weberfloor 4360 base flow rapid is mixed with clean water using an automatic screed mixer approved by Weber.

The material is mixed with 18% water, which corresponds to 4.5 litres per 25 kg bag. It is important to add only the specified amount of water as excess water will reduce strength, increase shrinkage and encourage segregation. Whilst mixing, the water content should be checked continuously by the flow ring test to ensure that the material is correctly mixed and free from separation and lumps of powder. The flow rate should be between 180-210mm. Conversely, reduced water content increases viscosity. The temperature of the mix should ideally be between +15°C and +20°C.

For manual mixing thoroughly mix with using a slow speed electric mixer (500 rpm) for at least two minutes. Allow to stand for 2 minutes.

Application

Light ventilation in the working area is necessary but windows and door openings must be closed sufficiently to avoid draughts during and for 3 days after application.

During application, and for at least 1 week afterwards, the substrate and ambient temperature should not fall below +10°C or rise above +25°C. The relative humidity of the substrate must be <95%.

To achieve the best finish, the floor area should be divided into bays of 6 to 8 metres depending on pump capacity and application thickness. weberfloor 4965 barrier foam should be used to form bays and stop ends. Pumping is carried out in sections so that a new section is pumped as quickly as possible and to maintain a wet edge. A wide flat spatula or wobble bar should be used to assist the self-levelling process.

Substrate

weberfloor 4360 base flow rapid can be used on floating and unbonded substrates, however weberfloor 4310 fibre flow or weberfloor 4320 fibre flow rapid are recommended for these applications as they have superior performance and can be applied thinner. Please see relevant datasheets for information.

Overlay

weberfloor 4360 base flow rapid is compatible with most common tile adhesives and all Weber thin topping screeds and industrial screeds.

weberfloor 4360 base flow rapid is ready to receive these Weber thin screeds after 4-6 hours (in normal conditions). However the drying time 1-3 days must be observed before the final floor covering can be applied. It should not be painted or used without a floor finish.

Drying time

The screed can receive foot traffic after a drying time of 2 - 3 hours at an ambient temperature of +20°C. If necessary, the surface can be ground after 2 days following application. Floor covering can be installed after 1 - 3 weeks depending on layer thickness and drying conditions. High humidity of the substrate and poor drying conditions prolong the setting time.

Packaging, Health & Safety

Packaging

weberfloor 4360 base flow rapid is packed in 25kg polythene-lined paper sacks.

Storage and Shelf Life

When stored unopened in a cool, dry place at temperatures above 5°C, shelf life is 12 months from date of manufacture.

Poor storage conditions may have an adverse impact on the levelling properties.

Health and Safety
