Levelling of concrete slabs and timber floors has come a long way in recent years. The product range of self-levelling compounds, bulk fill products, rapid set patching compounds and feather finish skim coats has increased with technology to have a product for all different areas.
Below is a guide of floor levelling products:
- Self-Levelling Screeds
These are commonly used to make a concrete slab that is not as level (or as smooth) as it should be to the standard that is required. Self-levelling
screeds are usually applied from a 3mm minimum ave to any thickness but usually up to 10mm thick of course they can be installed thicker but the costs tend to be excessive.
- Bulk Fill
These are commonly used were a floor has a set down or for ramping from 1 slab height to another. It’s a great product to build an internal ramp or to make a fall to waste.
- Rapid Set
In the flooring industry this product is used extensively when the need for a product to dry very quickly is required its normally for patching of holes or small ramping requirements.
- Feather Finish
This product is used extensively where there is a need for minor skim coating to approximately 1mm were a floor isn’t as smooth as it should be or general minor rectification prior to floorcoverings being installed.
