Application

Mineral hydraulic binder for the creation screeds ≥20 mm thick that adhere to the substrate, and floating screeds ≥40 mm thick in domestic, commercial and industrial applications and areas subject to thermal shock and freezing. Compatible with all cement-based, reactive-epoxy and polyurethane two-component adhesives, dispersed in water and in solvent solutions.

Description

A certified, eco-friendly, hydraulic, normal-setting and rapid-drying mineral binder for high-performance screeds and heat-radiant slabs, suitable for use with EMICODE® Green Building. It has very low volatile organic compound emissions and is recyclable as an inert material.

Keracem® Eco, mixed with inert materials of assorted grain size from 0–8 mm, creates screeds of high dimensional stability and constant moisture stability, guaranteeing the rapid, safe laying of ceramic tiles after 24 hours, and hardwood floors after five days.

Features and benefits:

  • Suitable for internal and external use.
  • Low water/ cement ratio.
  • Mechanical performances superior to those of Portland cements.
  • High dimensional stability and long-lasting performance.
  • Prolonged workability both in manual and mechanical laying.
  • Suitable for laying ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles, natural stone, hardwood floors and resilient materials using adhesives.
  • EMICODE® Green Building rating: Eco 2.
  • Contributes to LEED points.

Applications:

Mineral hydraulic binder for the creation screeds ≥20 mm thick that adhere to the substrate, and floating screeds ≥40 mm thick in domestic, commercial and industrial applications and areas subject to thermal shock and freezing. Compatible with all cement-based, reactive-epoxy and polyurethane two-component adhesives, dispersed in water and in solvent solutions.

– Suitable overlays:

  • Homogeneous tiles, ceramic tiles, clinker, cotto, glass and ceramic mosaic, of all types and formats.
  • Natural stone.
  • Agglomerate materials.
  • Hardwood floors.
  • Textiles, rubber, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and linoleum.
