Tilemaster Fine Flow 3000 is suitable for:
Use over a wide range of substrates including sand/cement screeds, concrete, flooring grade asphalt/bitumen, ceramic, porcelain and terrazzo tiles and epoxy damp proof membranes.
Tilemaster Fine Flow 3000 is also ideal for encapsulating electric underfloor heating elements on solid substrates and for use over underfloor heated screeds.
Tilemaster Fine Flow 3000 is fast setting, meaning ceramic tiles can be installed after as little as 3 hours, and decorative floor coverings can be installed after 24 hours.

PREPARATION OF TILEMASTER FINE FLOW 3000:
Before starting, all substrates must be clean, dry and strong enough to support the weight of the leveller and the final floor covering being applied. Remove all dust, dirt, oil, grease and other contaminants that may affect adhesion. Where traces of ceramic tile adhesive remain, these must be strong, sound and well adhered to the substrate in order to receive a levelling compound.
The substrate must be confirmed dry by consistent moisture readings; <75% relative humidity (RH) or <0.5% residual moisture content prior to starting. Where a structural damp proof membrane is not present or where rising damp and/or residual moisture results in moisture readings up to 98% RH, a liquid damp proof membrane such as Tilemaster Fast One Coat DPM must be applied before the application of Tilemaster FineFlow 3000. Surface laitance should be removed from screed surfaces prior to application.
Substrates require priming prior to the application of Tilemaster Fine Flow 3000. Priming the substrate will minimize the risk of pinholes forming, allow for the best flow properties and also prolong the working time of the product. Priming the substrate prior to application is considered “best practice”. For recommended priming dilution rates please refer to Page 3 of this data sheet.
MIXING AND APPLICATION:
Always mix by adding powder to water. Tilemaster FineFlow 3000 is mixed with a water content of 4.4 – 4.8 litres of water per 20kg of Tilemaster Fine Flow 3000. In a clean mixing vessel, add the pre-measured water before adding the powder component slowly whilst mixing with an electric paddle until a smooth and lump free consistency is obtained. Once mixed, allow the product to stand for 2 minutes and stir again prior to application. Do not add further water once mixed. Exceeding 4.8 litres of water per 20kg will result in water bleed and therefore extended drying times and a weakened mix.
N.B. Once mixed, Tilemaster Fine Flow 3000 will remain workable in the bucket for 20 – 30 minutes at 20°C.
Pour a small quantity onto the prepared surface and trowel down lightly from feather edge to 20mm. The use of a spiked roller is recommended immediately in thin applications in order to remove entrapped air and smooth out flow lines. Setting time will depend on atmospheric conditions/temperatures, it will be slowed by lower temperatures and accelerated by higher temperatures. If a depth greater than 20mm is required, allow the first application to dry and prime the surface with Tilemaster Primeplus at a 3:1 ratio before applying a subsequent coat.
Clean tools immediately after use with clean water.
Tilemaster Fine Flow 3000 is ideal for pump application. Mix in accordance with the pump manufacturer’s instructions and ensure that regular flow checks are carried out. Ensure the water content is correct and that there is no surface separation.
SETTING AND COVERING:
In ideal conditions, Tilemaster Fine Flow 3000 will accept light foot traffic after 3 hours. Tilemaster Fine Flow 3000 must be left to dry before applying the final decorative surface flooring. This is typically after 24 hours for decorative flooring such as vinyl and 3 hours for ceramic tiles, however, this can vary depending on the choice of surface flooring. Thicker applications may require a longer time to dry prior to applying floor coverings. If there is no air flow within site conditions, the drying time may be restricted. The critical moisture content for the flooring in question must be observed.
N.B. Under certain conditions, Tilemaster Fine Flow 3000 can be left and used as a wearing surface.
