Technical Information
Product Description

Vetotop XT537 is a cementitious floor dressing material composed of hydraulic binders, selected hard-wearing aggregates, and special additives. It is supplied as a dry powder in pre-weighed bags ready to use on-site. Vetotop XT537 is applied by the dry shake method to provide a hard-wearing top surface that bonds monolithically to the concrete flooring. It is ideal for all industrial areas subjected to heavy traffic, such as power stations, heavy industry, agricultural buildings, distillation plants, laboratories, abattoirs, warehouse floors, loading bays, and workshops.

Advantages
  • Premixed, ready to use, offering factory-controlled quality assurance.
  • Ease of application.
  • High abrasion and impact resistance.
  • Bonds monolithically to fresh concrete.
  • No-dusting surface.
  • Nonoxidizing.
  • A slip-resistant finish.
  • Provides a hard, dense surface resistant to oils and petroleum-based products.
  • Suitable for internal and external use.
  • Economic installation.
COMPLIANCE STANDARD
  • Tested to ASTM C944/C944 M-12 for abrasion resistance.

Application Information
Instructions for use

Design Criteria

Use a properly designed nonbleeding concrete mix of required strength, with a minimum cement content of 300 Kg and a slump of 75 mm and not more than 3% entrained air. The surface is then floated with a wooden or aluminum float. After casting, remove any bleeding water from the concrete.

Application

Sprinkle Vetotop XT537 along edges of bays (Approx. 100 mm strips) where expansion and contraction joints will be located first. Float into the surface using a wooden float.

As soon as the concrete is firm enough to support the workman's weight, apply the first shake of Vetotop XT537. Use up to 2/3 of the total shake mix in the first application. Treat areas adjacent to walls and columns first. Spread the material evenly by sprinkling at right angles in two passes close to floor level.

Allow the applied material to absorb moisture from the concrete surface. Uniform darker color will be apparent.

Using a wooden float, float Vetotop XT537 into the concrete, ensuring the material becomes an integral part of the surface. Follow by the second floating immediately after the first floating. Spread the balance 1/3 of the material, follow promptly with a second floating using wood or aluminum float or power float in case of large areas. A third power floating may follow for added compaction if required.

Curing

Vetotop XT537 is a cementitious product. Follow all norms and practices of casting and curing cementitious products, either by covering the surface with water and polyethylene sheets or applying a curing compound. Immediately after removing the polyethylene sheet, sweep the floor to remove any dust or loose particles.

Cleaning

Clean tools with water promptly before material hardens. Hardened material can be mechanically removed.

Limitation
  • After application, avoid rapid evaporation of water that may cause the small superficial fissures appearance due to plastic shrinkage.
  • It is recommended to cover with impermeable sheets for the initial 24 hours.
  • Do not apply the product at a temperature less than +5ºC or excessive heat or high wind conditions.
  • Ensure that enough labors, machinery, and material are available to treat the whole area before the concrete dries.
  • Do not use Vetotop XT537 in areas that are exposed to acids. In the case of the colored floor, test a small area of the floor to ensure color integrity.
  • For further information contact Saveto technical department.
