Sika Sikafloor® 262 AS N may only be used by experienced professionals. Sika Sikafloor® 262 AS N is used as: Decorative and protective electrostatic conductive self-smoothing system for concrete or cement screeds with normal up to medium heavy wear.
Suitable as a wearing course in industries, such as automotive, electronics and pharmaceutical manufacturing, storage facilities and warehouses. Particularly suitable for areas with sensitive electronic equipment e.g. CNC machinery, computer rooms, aircraft maintenance sheds, battery-charging rooms and areas subjected to high explosion risk.
The concrete substrate must be sound and of sufficient compressive strength (minimum 25 N/mm2) with a minimum pull off strength of 1.5 N/mm2. The substrate must be clean, dry and free of all contaminants such as dirt, oil, grease, coatings and surface treatments, etc. If in doubt apply a test area first. Concrete substrates must be prepared mechanically using abrasive blast cleaning or scarifying equipment to remove cement laitance and achieve an open textured surface.
Weak concrete must be removed and surface defects such as blowholes and voids must be fully exposed. Repairs to the substrate, filling of blow holes/voids and surface levelling can be carried out using appropriate products from the Sikafloor®, Sikadur® and Sikagard® range of materials.
The concrete or screed substrate has to be primed or levelled in order to achieve an even surface. Unevenness influences the film thickness and thus the conductivity. High spots must be removed by e.g. grinding. All dust, loose and friable material must be completely removed from all surfaces before application of the product, preferably by brush and/or vacuum.
Prior to mixing, stir part A mechanically. When all of part B has been added to part A, mix continuously for 2 minutes until a uniform mix has been achieved. When parts A and B have been mixed, add Sikafloor®- Filler 1 or the quartz sand 0.1 - 0.3 mm and mix for a further 2 minutes until a uniform mix has been achieved. To ensure thorough mixing pour materials into another container and mix again to achieve a consistent mix. Over mixing must be avoided to minimize air entrainment. Sikafloor®-262 AS N must be thoroughly mixed using a low speed electric stirrer (300 - 400 rpm) or other suitable equipment.
Sikafloor®-262 AS N is poured, spread evenly by means of a serrated trowel e.g. Large-Surface Scraper No. 656, Toothed blades No. 25 (www.polyplan.com). After spreading the material evenly, turn the serrated trowel and smooth the surface in order to achieve an aesthetically higher grade of finish. Roll immediately (within max. 10 minutes of application) in two directions with a steel spiked roller to ensure even thickness and to remove entrapped air. To obtain the highest level of aesthetic finish, spike roll in two directions at a 90 degree angle, passing only once in each direction.
Sika Sikafloor 262 AS N is used within the following Sika systems:

The manufacturers data sheets are available for download from this website. It is your responsibility to read and understand all aspects of the data sheets before you place an order and prior to application. Please pay special attention to the preparation, mixing and application temperatures of the product, cleaning of substrate and environmental factors such as temperature, rain etc. Quoted coverage rates are based on the manufacturers theoretical rates and may vary depending upon substrates absorption, texture and application. We always recommend a test is carried out to ensure suitability.
