Product Description

Vetotop XT538 is a cementitious floor dressing material composed of hydraulic binders, selected hard wearing aggregates and special additives. It is supplied as a dry powder in pre-weighed bags ready to use on site. Vetotop XT538 is applied by dry shake method to provide hard wearing top surface that bonds monolithically to the concrete flooring. It is ideally suited for all industrial areas subjected to heavy traffic, such as power stations, heavy industry, agricultural buildings, distillation plants, laboratories, abattoirs, warehouse fl oors, loading bays and work shops.

Application Information
Instructions for use

Design Criteria

Use a properly designed non bleeding concrete mix of required strength, with a minimum cement content of 300 Kg and a slump of 75 mm and not more than 3% entrained air. The surface is then floated with a wooden or aluminum float. After casting, any bleeding water from the concrete should be removed.


Sprinkle Vetotop XT538 along edges of bays (Approx. 100 mm strips) where expansion and contraction joints will be located first. Float into surface using a wooden float.

As soon as the concrete is firm enough to support the weight of the workman, apply the first shake of Vetotop XT538. Use up to 2/3 of the total shake mix in the first application. Treat areas adjacent to walls and columns first. Spread the material evenly by sprinkling at right angles in two pass close to floor level. Allow applied material to absorb moisture from the concrete surface. Uniform darker color will be apparent.

Using a wooden float, float Vetotop XT538 into the concrete ensuring material becomes an integral part of the surface. Follow second floating immediately after first floating. Spread the balance 1/3 of the material, follow promptly with second floating using wood or aluminum float or power float in case of large areas. A third power floating may follow for added compaction, if required.


After application, avoid rapid evaporation of water that may cause the small superficial fissures appearance due to plastic shrinkage.

It is recommended to cover with impermeable sheets for the initial 24 hours.

Do not apply the product at temperature less than +5ºC or excessive heat or high wind conditions.

Ensure that enough labors, machinery and material is available to complete treating the whole area before concrete dries.

Do not use Vetotop XT538 in areas that are exposed to acids. In case of colored floor, test a small area of floor to ensure the color integrity.

Tools should be cleaned with water before the mortar hardens. After the hardening its residuals can be removed mechanically only.
