Self-leveling underlayments require the use of a primer prior to installation (like the TEC Multipurpose Primer). Failure to use product recommended primer may result in installation failure. Primer retains the moisture within the self-leveling underlayment to allow proper curing.

How deep can self-leveling concrete be?

It can be easily applied over wood and concrete subfloors at a thickness of up to 3 in. (76 mm). Its high compressive strength at low thicknesses provides superior underlayment performance for higher traffic areas.

Will concrete overlay last?

Concrete overlays typically last 10-15 years but can last up to 25+ years if well-applied and maintained. The overlay material quality, the amount of prep work done to the concrete, and the amount of regular maintenance can impact the lifespan of a concrete overlay.

    How to make self leveling cement?

    – Use “self compacting concrete” (SCC) with superplasticizers. – Reinforcement mesh placed and lifted close to the finished surface of the concrete. – Poured very quickly with multiple trucks at the same time so the mix is consistently soft throughou

    How to use self leveling concrete?

    Self leveling concrete is highly viscous with the consistency of syrup, so it doesn’t need to be spread with a trowel.However we do use a squeegee on most jobs to help spread it faster. Pour some syrup onto a dish and let it sit, the syrup will eventually level itself with nothing but it’s own weight and gravity.
