Nitoflor TF5000 constructive solutions

Heavy duty 5 mm chemical and abrasion

resistant epoxy resin floor screed


Nitoflor TF5000 provides an extremely high strength floor

topping with exceptional resistance to attack from
mechanical wear and chemical spillage which is impervious
and at the same time produces a safe non-slip finish for
personnel and vehicular traffic.

Ideally suited for heavy engineering plants, chemical

handling and process areas, steelworks, dairies, breweries,
oil refineries, paint workshops, battery rooms and plating

Also widely used for areas of lighter duty where above

average durability and low maintenance costs are required.
The finished, cured floor has a slightly granular texture of
