Self-leveling floor refers to a special type of screed, creating a levelling layer by the independent spreading of the mixture on the substrate. The technology of filling the floor is not complicated and is carried out without screeds, thanks to the special flowability of the mixture is able to self-level and hardens very quickly.
Self-Leveling Floor is important part of any renovation. Self-leveling compound helps to get rid of dips and bumps on a concrete floor or any other type of floors. Usually it applies to the floors when you need to level floor from 1 to 20 mm or more and when there are no possibilities to make a proper screed.
self-levelers are essentially the same mixes used in wet cement screed, but their composition manufacturers have added a sufficient number of additives and modifiers to obtain a more plastic solution that can fill all the microcracks in the foundation. The mixture is added with water to the state of liquid cream. After hardening, the surface will be flat and without the roughness inherent in conventional cement screed. This type of material is often used in combination with a standard cement screed, when the height difference is large, but a simple screed is not enough, because you need a perfectly flat surface.
Also if you are installing under floor heating system in a self-levelling floor required to cover wires.
