Description
Nitoflor EU5 consists of special resins and graded aggregates formulated to withstand chemical attack and impact shock. The product is supplied as a 3 component system comprising resin base, resin hardener and fillers. When correctly laid Nitoflor EU5 will provide a surface ready to receive applications of other Fosroc flooring systems.

Technical Support
Fosroc offers a comprehensive range of high performance, high quality flooring, jointing and repair products for both new and existing floor surfaces. In addition, the company offers a technical support package to specifiers, end-users and contractors, as well as on-site technical assistance in locations all over the world.

Design Criteria
Nitoflor EU5 is designed for application in the range of 1.5-5 mm. Greater thicknesses can be achieved by the use of other products in the Nitoflor EU range – consult the local Fosroc office for more details.
Substrates should be surface dry and not suffer, or be likely to suffer, from rising dampness. If necessary, suitable damp-proof membranes should be installed to prevent this. Substrates should not have a moisture content greater than 5% at any time during the installation.

Specification Clause
The epoxy underlay shall achieve a minimum compressive strength of 60 N/mm2, Flexural strength of 20 N/mm2 and Tensile strength of 10N/mm2 @ 7 days. The underlay shall have nil water absorption when tested as per BS1881 Part 122-1983. The adhesion strength of the epoxy underlay shall be greater than the tensile strength of concrete.
