DEFINITION

QUARZPLATE is a ready-to-use concrete surface hardener composed of hydraulic binder, quartz aggregate and other additives, resistant to abrasion and dust, used monolithically on freshly floated concrete.

USAGE AREAS

  • In buildings such as factories, warehouses, repair shops, parking lots, garages, fairgrounds, supermarkets, aircraft hangars.
  • Sidewalks, roads, parking lots.
  • It is used on concrete surfaces exposed to light and medium traffic loads such as corridors, terraces, ramps, schools, hospitals, shopping malls, residences and workplaces.

FEATURES The

Strength of the concrete surface in which QUARZPLATE is used increases 2-4 times compared to normal concrete.

  • Strength against impacts increases.
  • The absorbent feature of the concrete surface decreases.
  • It reduces dusting on the concrete surface and is easy to clean.
  • High strength occurs on the concrete surface thanks to the low water / cement ratio.
  • Resistance to substances such as industrial chemicals, engine oil, mineral oils, mild acids and detergents increases.
  • The hardener applied becomes a part of the concrete structure.
  • It can be used indoors and outdoors.
  • Resists flaking occurring as a result of freezing-thawing in concrete.

CONSUMPTION 

3-6 kg / m2
depending on the load and traffic density
3-4 kg / m2 in light and medium
loads 5-6 kg / m2 in heavy loads The
material makes a coating of 2-3 mm thickness on the concrete surface.

APPLICATION

Concrete pouring

The concrete to be poured on the existing old concrete must be at least 7 cm thick and capable of bearing the load on it. Concrete is poured into the prepared slabs and placed well with a vibrating gauge, if necessary, the surface is leveled with a wooden trowel. The concrete surface to be applied should not be too wet or too dry, and should be so wet that the surface hardener can absorb the moisture it needs. If the water ratio in the concrete is too low and the concrete is dry, the surface hardener will not be structurally combined with the concrete. If there is too much water, there will be segregation in the surface hardener material and there will be a decrease in the strength of the concrete surface. Therefore, if there is ‘bleeding’ water on the concrete, it should be removed.

Surface hardener application When the concrete is hardened enough to leave a 2-3 mm deep footprint when walked on,Surface hardener application is started. First, 2/3 of the material to be used is spread on the concrete surface homogeneously on the concrete surface by hand or mechanical spreader. The spread material should be expected to be dampened (change color) by absorbing the water of the concrete, and it should be ensured that it integrates with the concrete by disc glazing and feeding it into the concrete. Then the remaining 1/3 material is spread over the concrete in the same way and glazed.

The fine-finishing finishing after the rough finishing process should be done until the desired smoothness and brightness is achieved by adjusting the glaze and the thin blade angle.The spread material should be expected to be dampened (change color) by absorbing the water of the concrete, and it should be ensured that it integrates with the concrete by disc glazing and feeding it into the concrete.

Note: The material in light colors such as yellow, blue and white should be applied at least 6 kg / m2 and 1/3 ratio 3 times.

Curing

Immediately after the application, before the formation of the joints, the concrete surface should be protected with PROCURE curing agent to prevent rapid evaporation of the concrete water and capillary shrinkage cracks and to add strength to the concrete.

Joint cutting

Joints are cut within 1-3 days.

Joint filling

Application of joint filling should be done after the concrete has completely set, that is, at the earliest 28 days after the concrete application.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

Gloves, goggles and masks should be used during application. Avoid contact with eyes, mouth, skin and food. In case of contact with the skin, wash with plenty of water. In case of contact with eyes and swallowing, consult a doctor.
