TOPCEM

Special fast setting hydraulic binder for the preparation of normal setting and fast drying (4 days) screeds with controlled shrinkage.

Applications:
Formation of floating and bonded screeds on existing and new slabs for the installation of wood, ceramic tiles, natural stone or any other flooring where fast drying is required for short installation times. Suitable for interior and exterior use.
