Performances

Bending Strength : According to NEN-EN 13892-2:2002: after 28 days ≥ 9 N/mm².
Bureau Wheelchair resistance : From 2 mm layer thickness.
Compressive strength : According to NEN-EN 13892-2:2002: after 28 days ≥ 35 N/mm².
Consumption : 

Approx. 1.5 kg/m² per mm layer thickness.

Flammability : Non-flammable.
Passableness : 2-3 hours at 18°-20° C.*

Application

Application:

For levelling stony subfloors in layer thickness between 2 and 30 mm, especially anhydrite floors, which are to be covered with a floor covering.

At a layer thickness > 10 mm add approx. 7 kg of 846 Quartzsand to 23 kg of 920 Europlan Alphy.

If applying by pump:

Consult pump supplier, ensure the pump is suitable for all types of levelling compounds. Pumping with a too high mixing rate can cause an insufficient flow of the levelling compound.


Working Process

Storage : Store cool and dry.
Tools : Trowel or notched squeegee in combination with a spiked roller, mixing-device.
Mixing ratio : Add 23 kg of 920 Europlan Alphy to 5,5 - 6 litres of water.
Processing time : Use within 30 minutes after mixing.*
Latency : 3 to 5 minutes.
Drying : 24 hours.*
Shelf Life : 6 months, in unopened packaging.
Frost-proof : No.

* The mentioned values have been established in our laboratory and must be considered as guidelines in view of possible variations in climatic circumstances, subfloor compositions and layer thickness.

Consumption:

Approx. 1.5 kg/m² per mm layer thickness.



Substrate:
  • 920 Europlan Alphy can be applied on any type of stony subfloor that is rigid and has a good tensile and compression strength. The subfloor should also be clean, permanently dry and free from grease and dirt according to the requirements of BS 8203 or DIN 18 365.
  • Sandpaper, if necessary, anhydrite subfloor and make free from dust (by using an industrial vacuum cleaner).
  • Decrease smooth and impervious subfloors (tile floors, granito, terrazzo etc.) with 014 Euroclean and dry well afterwards. After that prime thin and covered with 044 Europrimer Multi with a foam roller. Old (water-resistant) adhesive also needs to be primed in this way.
  • Prime porous subfloors e.g. anhydrite with 044 Europrimer Multi, 099 Disperion Primer or 049 Europrimer ABS with a foam roller.
  • In case of asphalt floors and bituminous substrates remove dirt and loose parts. After that prime with 044 Europrimer Multi.
  • Fill cracks and deep damages with 944 Europlan Alphy Quick. After hardening wait for at least 24 hours. Prime the repaired places with 044 Europrimer Multi and dry well before levelling the floor.
  • Fix cracks/seams in subfloors with 021 Euroblock Reno in combination with 063 Eurotape and 846 Quartzsand or with 808 Eurojoint Connector in combination with 021 Euroblock Reno.
  • In advance always seek our technical data sheets. In doubt about the application ask for technical advice. 


User manual:

Working conditions:

Required surrounding temperature  : 18° - 23° C.
Temperature subfloor                       : min. 15° - max. 20º C.
Relative humidity                              : 40-70%

Directions for use:

  • When mixing 920 Europlan Alphy ensure that tools are always clean and free from cement residues.
  • In case of preparation by hand add 23 kg of 920 Europlan Alphy to 5.5 - 6 litres of cool and clean tap water. Follow the exact water ratio. 
  • Stir the mortar, using an electric stirrer (Eurocol no. 855), to a smooth and homogeneous mixture.
  • Wait for approx. 5 minutes and stir the mortar once again, with a low rpm. ·
  • Apply the mortar within 30 minutes on the floor with a trowel or notched squeegee in a minimum layer thickness of 2 mm. ·
  • When pumping adjust the mixing-device in such way that per 23 kg of 920 Europlan Alphy 5.5 - 6 litres of cool and clean tap water will be added.
  • Protect fresh levelling compound layers against draft and direct sunlight.
  • It is not recommended to sandpaper or prime the dried levelling compound layer.
  • When it is recommended to sandpaper the applied levelling compound layer use a sanding grid with grain size 100 or softer. Thereafter make the floor dust-free with an industrial vacuum cleaner. When necessary prime the subfloor with 049 Europrimer ABS or 099 Disperionprimer with a foam roller (Eurocol no. 856/857). Drying time approx. 1 hour.
  • Under normal circumstances the applied layer is passable after 2-3 hours. In a layer thickness of 5 mm the levelling compound is ready for further use after 24 hours.
  • In case of thicker layers measure the residual moisture percentage by using a hydrometer (residual moisture with hydrometer measurement < 1.0% or residual moisture percentage 0.3-0.5%, depending on type of floor covering).
  • For extended information about the safety precautions we refer to the safety data sheet on our website www.eurocol.nl.

Underfloor heating systems:

920 Europlan Alphy can be applied on underfloor heating systems. The startprotocol of the floorheating needs to be completly executed in accordance with the directives of the supplier. Turn off the heater 24 hours before application. Do not heat again until at least 24 hours after application, in steps of maximum 5° C water temperature per day.
