Application Information
Instructions for use


NEOCEM SCREED 30 can be laid as a bonded screed by applying SBR Bonding Slurry to prepared concrete substrate as a bonding and priming layer.

To prepare the SBR bonding slurry, mix 1 part of SBR LATEX RIPRESA, a SBR with 2 parts of clean water and add 3 parts by weight of fresh cement and mix until a smooth consistency is prepared.

Scrub the mixed slurry into the concrete surface, while the slurry is not yet dry; apply NEOCEM SCREED 30 in order to ensure good adhesion with the substrate.


Pour into a container 6-7 liters of water for 50 Kg bag of NEOCEM SCREED 30. Add the powder screed to the water and mix with a low speed electric drill fitted with a suitable paddle, until a uniform, lump free consistency mix is achieved. No further water should be added to the mix particularly once its start to set.


Pour the mixed product onto the surface and spread to the level about 10 mm above the bottom i.e.: giving it a surcharge. Then tamp down the screed heavily to the level to give a full compaction. Strike off excess screed material until the top level (above the batten) by running a straight edge ruler alongside it.

Fill any slightly low areas, re-compact and rule out. Finish the section of the screed laid by wood float and steel trowel.

Protect the floor after leveling the mix from direct sunlight, high winds or rain.

It is possible to apply flooring material on top of NEOCEM SCREED 30 (such as ceramic, carpet, etc.) after nearly 7 days (depending on the thickness, humidity and weather conditions).


Curing of the completed floor shall be carried out using a combination of damp hessian and polythene sheeting for a period of no less than 3 days.


Tools and equipment should be cleaned with water immediately after use. Hardened material should be removed mechanically.


  • During summer season or temperature higher than 35oC, working area should be covered to prevent the direct sun effects. Keep equipment cool and use cool water
  • Protect the freshly applied NEOCEM SCREED 30 from direct sunlight and/or strong drying wind
  • NEOCEM SCREED 30 should be cured for minimum 3 days with clean water
  • Most floor covering can be laid after 7 days
  • When applying the screed over tongue and groove timber floors or other surfaces, it is recommended to reinforce the screed with expanded metal or galvanized wire mesh
  • Do not use where negative hydrostatic pressure is evident (i.e. rising damp)
Surface Preparation

The base concrete should be sound, clean free from loose material, lime, gypsum, plaster, grease laitance, dirt curing compound. The surface must be well prepared for bonding by scabbing to expose the coarse aggregate. Fix any screed battens to level. The surface should be swept to remove any loose material and wetted with clean water if the screed is placed in direct contact with the base.

Additional Information
Health & Safety

During application, wear appropriate protective clothing, goggles, gloves and respiratory equipment if necessary.


In case of contact with skin, rinse with water and again wash thoroughly with soap and water. In case of contact with eyes, rinse with plenty of water and seek medical advice accordingly.


If ingested, obtain medical attention immediately. Do not induce vomiting.
