Everbuild Self Level Floor Compound At Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire

Self Level Floor Compound is a cement based product used to level out uneven floors and screeds prior to laying ceramic tiles, thermop­lastic tiles, lino, wood block flooring or carpet. The compound provides a free flowing mix that sets in 90 minutes and can be overlaid after only 8 hours at normal tempe­ratures.

Mix with either water or EVERBUILD FLOOR FLEX PLUS to give a free flowing self levelling topping. NOTE: This product is not suitable for use as a final wearing surface.

Application

Floors to be treated must be free from grease, dust and loose particles. Always prepare floors by dampening with water then priming with Everbuild PVA Bond diluted 1 part PVA to 3 parts water to give a sound, slightly damp surface.

20kg of self levelling powder will require 4 litres of water. Always add the powder to water. This should be carried out by stepwise addition whilst stirring until a free flowing creamy compound is produced.  Pour the mixture out into the prepared floor and allow it to find its own level. Trowel down lightly to achieve an overall thickness not exceeding 6mm. Where further finishing is required, allow the surface to stiffen, usually ¾ to one hour after application, and lightly sprinkle with water and carefully trowel to produce a smooth appearance. Do not sprinkle excessive water or over trowel at this stage.

Additional layers, each not exceeding 6mm, may be applied to achieve the required depth. Prime with Everbuild PVA Bond diluted 1:3 with water between layers.

For areas where deep depressions occur, (greater than 6mm in depth up to 15mm) , Add 1 part of clean, dry sharp sand to 1 part Self Levelling Compound. The sand should be added after mixing powder with water. It is advisable to reduce the amount of mixing water before adding sand, and then top up with water to achieve the correct consistency. Note: the flow charac­te­ristics will be affected by addition of the sand. If the product starts to stiffen or set, DO NOT try to remix or add extra water. Alter­natively, use EVERBUILD DEEP FILL levelling compound which fills upto 50mm in one coat.

For areas where heavy loading and/or trafficking are anticipated on the final surface, mix Everbuild Self Levelling Floor Compound with neat Everbuild FLOOR FLEX PLUS rather than water. This will improve flexibility, adhesion and durability of the screed. The mixing ratio is again 20kg of powder to 5ltrs of FLOOR FLEX PLUS. Again, prime the floor with Everbuild PVA diluted 1:3 with water.
