Setcrete launches revolutionary water-mix levelling compound

Setcrete Level-Smart represents the next generation of floor levelling compounds. It is a high-performance, fast-setting, fast-drying, water-mix levelling compound for smoothing flooring screeds where old adhesive residues are present. It is recommended for use in flooring refurbishments and projects that face tight time constraints or when a fast-track, time-saving option is simply preferred, without compromising on quality.

Setcrete Level-Smart can be applied over old adhesive residues, including bitumen, carpet tile tackifiers and ceramic tile adhesives, eliminating the need for mechanical removal, which would normally be required. In such applications, there is no need to prime beforehand, saving further time and expense. Setcrete Level-Smart’s fast setting characteristics enable a walk-on time of just 90 minutes and new floorcoverings can be installed from four hours.

Setcrete Level-Smart is suitable for use over a wide range of subfloor types, including sand/cement screed, concrete, granolithic, terrazzo, asphalt, steel, old vinyl asbestos tiles, epoxy and polyurethane resins, ceramic and quarry tiles.

Commenting on the new levelling compound, Setcrete Brand Manager Peter Wilson said: “Advancements in cement technology have enabled us to create a water-mix alternative to levelling compounds that can be applied directly over old adhesive residues, which have previously only been available to builders in bag and bottle formulations. This allows flooring installations to proceed as quickly as possible while providing a high-quality finish. It provides a genuine ‘problem solver’ for floor levelling.”

Setcrete Level-Smart is available in 20kg sacks, it can be applied at thicknesses from 2-10mm unfilled, and up to 30mm filled.
