Floor Levelling Compound

What is it used for

used for icon 2.jpg

Residential Flooring

Used to level subfloors in preparation for tiles, vinyl, laminate, and other floor coverings. It ensures a smooth, even surface, preventing imperfections from showing through the final flooring.


Commercial Flooring

Ideal for large-scale commercial projects where a flat, stable base is essential for high-traffic areas. It ensures durability and longevity of the final floor covering.


Industrial Flooring

Used in industrial settings to create a level surface for heavy-duty floor coverings. The compound provides a robust base capable of withstanding heavy machinery and equipment.

Rapid-Set Floor Levelling Compound

Description: Cures faster than standard compounds, allowing for quicker project completion.

Applications: Ideal for projects with tight timelines, enabling same-day floor covering installation.


Fiber-Reinforced Floor Levelling Compound

Description: Contains fibers for added strength and crack resistance.

Applications: Suitable for areas subject to heavy foot traffic or mechanical stress.


Self-Smoothing Floor Levelling Compound

Description: High flow properties ensure an ultra-smooth finish without trowelling.

Applications: Perfect for achieving a seamless surface under thin floor coverings like vinyl or linoleum.

Installation

Tools Required

Trowel | Spirit level | Mixing bucket | Mixing drill with paddle attachment | Spiked roller


Materials Required

Floor levelling compound | Water | Primer (if required)


Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Preparation: Clean the floor, remove debris, and apply primer if needed.

  2. Mixing: Combine the levelling compound with water in a mixing bucket, following manufacturer’s instructions.

  3. Pouring: Pour the mixture onto the floor and spread with a trowel.

  4. Levelling: Use a spiked roller to remove air bubbles and ensure an even spread.

  5. Curing: Allow the compound to set and cure as per manufacturer’s guidelines before installing the final floor covering.

Single Bags

Ideal for small projects or repairs. Typically available in 20kg bags.


Pallets

Suitable for medium to large projects. A pallet usually contains 50 bags (20kg each).


Bulk Orders

For large-scale industrial or commercial projects, bulk orders can be arranged directly with suppliers.

Environmental Impact

Sustainability Considerations

Floor levelling compounds can have a significant environmental impact due to the cement used in their composition. Cement production is energy-intensive and emits a considerable amount of CO2.


Eco-friendly Alternatives

Opt for compounds with low VOC (volatile organic compounds) emissions. Some manufacturers offer eco-friendly options that incorporate recycled materials or alternative binders to reduce environmental footprint.


Waste Reduction

Properly measure and mix only the amount needed to minimize waste. Any leftover compound should be disposed of according to local regulations to avoid environmental contamination.


Energy Efficiency

Using floor levelling compounds that allow for thinner applications can reduce the overall material used and the energy required for installation and curing.
