Fortedur 1020 dry shake from Fortemix company

Fortedur 1020 is the unique mix of dry ingredients, used for surface hardening of concrete industrial floors. The surface hardened floor is smooth with non-slip properties, more resistant to wear and impact, easy to clean and practically non-dusty compared to ordinary concrete. Its soaking resistance is also increased (oils, solvents and others). Fortedur 1020 dry shake is most often bought due to the most favorable price-performance ratio and universal availability in several warehouses in Poland.

Industrial floors are exposed to very high loads and attrition during intensive use, which is why it is recommended to make surface hardening on their surface.

The dry mixture FORTEDUR 1020 consists of sintered oxides, quartz sand, cement and other chemical additives. Dry shake FORTEDUR 1020 is spread on the surface of fresh concrete, which can be accessed without collapsing and surface is mechanically smoothed with the power trowels creating a thin, 2-3mm hard layer on its surface.

A very high sintered oxide content of 55.42% guarantees very good abrasion resistance of the finished floor surface. Sintered oxides are black aggregate, which is visible on the surface of the blurred concrete in the form of black dots, which gives the floor a unique look.

Surface hardening is most often used in production and warehouse halls, all types of wholesale, logistics centers or internal parking lots..


FORTEDUR 1020 is packed in 25 kg bags. The bags are stacked on pallets of 42 pieces . The entire pallet weighs 1050kg net / 1075kg gross.

Floors with dry mixes are primarily done in a natural gray color (the color of concrete). The mixed layer can be dyed to a selected color shade based on the requirements of the customer. The final color of the floor is always a combination of the color of the dry mix with shades of gray. Close-up on the surface you will see black spots coming from curing aggregate, i.e. sintered oxides.

The concrete must be ready to receive the dry mix. Before applying the first layer, excess water is removed from the concrete surface, the surface is leveled and ready to walk on (pressed by hand to a depth of 3-5 mm). The concrete surface is smoothed using a rotary disc buffer, then Fortedur dry mix is evenly spread on the surface of the concrete slab in one or two steps in a total amount of 3-6 kg/m2 (i.e. a 25 kg bag of the product can produce a 4-8 m2 wear layer).
After each application of the material, the surface is mechanically smoothed with the rotary machine using combination and final trowels, which ensures a high degree of the final physical modification. The process of smoothing with an increasing tilt of the trowel is repeated many times depending on the course of the solidification of the concrete mixture and dry mix. Prior to applying Fortedur dry mix, there can be no depressions or puddles on the concrete surface, nor can the surface be soaked..

Immediately after machine smoothingon the hardened surface need to be spray with care product intended for this purpose. Suitable impregnants for example.Fortecoat 1425 solvent based or Fortecoat 1426 water based - prevent premature drying of the surface layer of the plate with hardening. The maturing process then takes place equally over the entire thickness of the concrete slab. The preparations close the pores in the floor, sealing it and reducing the effect dusting, reduce its absorbency, increase mechanical and chemical resistance and facilitate cleaning the substrate.
