Finish U1 is also used as tlkc first stagr for Finishes U2 and U3. Finishing operations shall consist of sufficient levelling and screeding to produce even uniform surfaces. Surface irregularities, measured as dcscribcd under 4.16.1 shall not exceed 1 cm ( or ) in ). surlaces b) Finish U2 (jEo&d $nish) - shall’ apply to unformed not permanently concealed by backfill or concrete or unformed surfaces for which Finshcs Ul and U3 are not specified, and shall crete 28 IS : 457 - 1957 include floors. of sumps, tops of walls, parking areas, parapet walls, sdrfaces of gutters, sitlcwalks :md outside entrance slabs. Finish U2 is also used as the second stngc for Finish U3. Floating may be performed by use of hand- or power-driven equipment.

Steel trowelling shall be performed with firm pressure, so as to flatten the sandy texture df the floated surface and produce a dense uniform surface, free from blemishes and trowel marks; light steel trowelling will be permissible on surfaces of slabs to be covered with built-up roofing or membrane waterproofing, in which light trowel marks are not considered objectionable.
