APPLICATIONS

EPSCement® can be used for all types of floor constructions, where surfaces need to be filled up to finished floors. After coating with leveling/tie kit, EPSCement® floor surfaces give enough strength to be coated with carpet, clinker, parquet, etc. Other uses are eg. plate on ground, parking deck, heat-insulating outer roof with fall structure and wall cushions indoor / outdoor, patio, garden path, attic, swimming pool, floating dock, garage ramp, repair of water damage etc.

 

SOUND INSULATING BATHROOMS FOR HIGHER STANDARDS

EPSCement® is advantageously used for casting of bathroom floors. EPSCement® adds light weight and creates a solid moisture-proof floor construction especially suited for ceramic floor tile systems. The drying time is short and the building is not supplied with moisture due to the self-drying properties. EPSCement® does not contain any organic material and therefore cannot mold. With concrete and insulation in the same material, there will be much less energy loss. EPSCement® can both be cast on the floor and sprayed on the wall.

INSULATING FLOORS ON GROUND WITH EPSCEMENT®
(for example Basement Floor)

When casting a new concrete floor or replacing the old one, it is advantageous to mold with EPSCement®. Since EPSCement® is diffusion-open and breathable, the design can take care of any additional moisture. The drying time is short and the building is not supplied with moisture due to the self-drying properties. EPSCement® does not contain any organic material and therefore cannot mold. With concrete and insulation in the same material, there will be much less energy loss. If you then coat the EPSCement® with underfloor heating, you only heat the putty layer and not the entire plate as with ordinary concrete.

INSULATING & SOUND-DEADENING FLOORS ON CONCRETE PLATE

The drying time is short and the building is not supplied with moisture due to the self-drying properties. EPSCement® does not contain any organic material and therefore cannot mold. With concrete and insulation in the same material, there will be much less energy loss. If you then coat the EPSCement® with underfloor heating, you only heat the putty layer and not the entire plate as with ordinary concrete.

INSULATING & SOUND-DEADENING FLOORS

WITH WOODEN JOISTS

 

Using EPSCement® with wooden joists, you create secure floors with stability like a concrete floor but with low weight and without delaying drying times and with a minimal risk of water damage. You also save building height as EPSCement® is added to the upper edge following filler, not causing "plus heights".

EMBEDDED INSTALLATIONS ON CONCRETE SLABS

For existing flooring to be cast in different installations - Cast on with the required thickness but min. 30mm EPSCement® and min. 15mm filler. With EPSCement® you get a step-sound-dampening layer for the underlying surfaces.

EPSCEMENT® WITH TIE BEAMS

Here, the structure becomes the same in design as wood flooring but can also be cast on structural sheet metal. This construction can be used when you want to build a garage/extension to a outdoor space or expand the home. Since the material has fire classification A2, which is non-combustible, it also offers fire protection.

INSULATIVE GROUND / PLATE

Fast and insulating bases completely without energy-absorbing heat bridges. This solution avoids long waiting times for the casting to be coated. Already after 12 hours you can add reinforcement/root mesh and screed. Coat the floor according to the manufacturer's recommendation.

INSULATING YARD JOISTS

Less emphasis on existing construction and better insulation. Can be casted over after 12 hours. With the insulation that is built into the material, you can advantageously add a heating coil to fight the winter risk of slipping and consequently thawing the ice as the spring sun comes peering in.
