Marine Mortar 1600 SC

Product description

Marlon Marine Mortar 1600 SC is cement based, plastic reinforced light weight screed compound for levelling of all types of subfloor incl. making slopes for shower, galleys, etc. to be use in all types of dry and wet accommodation areas. For wet accommodation areas, prior to the application of e.g. tiles, the substrate must be treated with a water resistant membrane (e.g. Marine Elastic 1000 Membrane). Before applying vinyl or carpet, it is recommended that a thin, self-levelling layer of mortar, such as Marine 900 SL, Marine 1600 SL or Marine 1800 SL to be applied to level the floor. By normal condition (20°C/68°F and 80 % RH) Marlon Marine Mortar 1600 SC quickly attains a high surface strength and is walkable after 3-4 hours, depending of temperature. Final covering can be applied after 1-3 days. Note that the curing time depends on the substrate temperature and the ambient air temperature of the working area as well as the relative humidity. Marlon Marine Mortar 1600 SC meets all requirements according to IMO FTP Code 2010 part 5.
