Providing a protective covering for fireplace materials that can be damaged by exposure to a fires heat, Vitcas 20KG Heatproof Screed is a fine cement-like material which will withstand temperatures of up to 1400°C (2552°F). Fully blended with a maximum grain size of 5mm, this product needs only water and to be mixed to a trowelling consistency. Vitcas have been manufacturing their high quality heat resistant products in Bristol since 1882. Using tried and tested traditional formulations and tweaking them with the latest technology, Vitcas are specialists in high temperature applications. A 20kg tub of Vitcas Heatproof Screed will cover approximately 0.40m² (4.3ft²) at a thickness of 25mm (1") with a bulk density of 1840kg/m³ (115Ib/ft³).
Application: If applying to new brickwork and surface, ensure the backing material is fully first. On older surfaces, mortar joints should be raked out to provide maximum keying, to the depth of 12mm, and the brick or stonework roughened where necessary and dampened. Clear away any rubble and use clean tools to mix the Vitcas Heatproof Screed with cold water to a stiff trowelling consistency.
Disclaimer: Always read the instructions thoroughly before applying and keep out of reach of children and pets.
