Prepare

  • Sweep the surface with a stiff broom. Remove any flaky paint. Use Oil & Grease Remover if necessary. Concrete Floor Leveller can be used on damp, but not wet, surfaces
  • Firstly, dampen the concrete with cold water and leave for 30 minutes. Apply Primer 1 with a soft brush, leave for a minimum of 20 minutes (you can even leave it overnight). Then apply Primer 2 (it doesn’t matter if Primer 1 is still tacky). We supply a generous amount of Primer 2 in case the surfaces are porous and absorb more of the primer. If that isn’t the case, then it is normal to have some left over. Don’t use too much primer if you plan on painting the surface as the finish may be patchy
  • Once Primer 2 is down, start to mix the product. Pour the contents of the resin bottle into the bucket, gradually adding the powder. Mix until even with a slow speed drill fitted with a mixing blade. When the product is an even colour and creamy consistency, it is ready. This shouldn’t take more than five minutes of mixing

Apply

  • Pour the leveller onto the primed surface and spread with a trowel. Remove any air with a spiked roller (which we can supply). Give the area 3 or 4 good goes with the spiked roller from different directions. The product will start to set in about 20 minutes, so don’t roll after that time
  • Don’t use Concrete Floor Leveller if the temperature is lower than 5°C or higher than 25°C as this can cause fine cracks to appear in the product when set. Don’t use in full sun
  • Have a bucket of clean water handy. You can put your tools in it immediately after use to stop the product from setting on them

Trade Tip

The primer and mixture will be hard to remove if you tread into surrounding areas. Best to remove footwear immediately after you’ve finished
