TYPES OF SELF-LEVELLING

Water-based self-levelling compound

Water-Based Self-Levelling

Most self-levelling compounds are cement-based products which are mixed with water before pouring / pumping it on the surface.

Latex based self-levelling

Latex Based Self-Levelling

Latex based self-levelling is where the compound is mixed with a latex additive instead of water. Additional water is unnecessary with this type of screed.

Fibre-reinforced self-levelling compound finish

Fibre-Reinforced Self-Levelling

Fibre-reinforced self-levelling is a cement-based product which is mainly used to apply over underfloor heating and wooden surfaces.

Industrial self-levelling

Industrial Self-Levelling

Industrial self-levelling is a popular solution for commercial floor screeding as it requires very little smoothing and spreads across the floor like a liquid.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How is Self-Levelling Applied?

The self-levelling mixture is combined with water and can be either pumped or poured onto the surface. After application, you will need to spread it across the area, and the compound then starts to level itself out.

What are Some of the Benefits of using Self-Levelling Compounds?

Self-levelling compounds can be applied quickly, which allows you to cover more areas in a shorter time span and reduce the labour required. Another benefit is the rapid-drying time, some self-levelling compounds allow for foot traffic just hours after being installed, this is due to the thickness being very thin. This also means you can have a much lower floor build-up prior to using other types of screeds. Overall, self-levelling compounds create a smooth and level finish.

Can I Install Self-Levelling Compounds by Myself?

Applying self-levelling compounds yourself can be challenging if you have no prior experience or the correct tools which is why it is suggested to hire professionals, however, if you’re confident in doing it yourself then it is definitely achievable. Have a read of our blog post which gives you an in-depth guide on how to easily apply self-levelling compounds yourself.

How do I Prepare the Floors for Self-Levelling Compounds?

Before applying self-levelling compounds, proper floor preparation is essential. Begin by grinding the concrete to expose the aggregates. Ensure the surface is free from dust or other debris by thoroughly sweeping and vacuuming. Address any cracks or holes by filling them in. Concluding the prep, it’s vital to apply a recommended primer to ensure it adheres well to the subfloor; each product will have specific priming instructions that are essential to follow. For details on various self-levelling compounds, please refer to our technical datasheets.
