Tilemaster LevelFlex+ DEPTH video:
Tilemaster LevelFlex+ DEPTH is a flexible, fibre reinforced, rapid setting, protein free smoothing and levelling compound, designed for preparing subfloors prior to the installation of floor coverings. LevelFlex+ DEPTH has been developed to allow the product to be applied from depths of 2mm – 85mm in one application without the need for additional aggregate, whilst still allowing, due to its rapid setting and drying properties, ceramic, porcelain and natural stone tiles to be fitted from as little as 2.5 hours.
LevelFlex+ DEPTH can be used on a large variety of substrates, including sand & cement screeds, concrete, timber, flooring grade asphalt/bitumen and existing ceramic, porcelain and natural stone tiles. LevelFlex+ DEPTH can be used on underfloor heated screeds, retro fit overlay underfloor heating systems and is ideal for encapsulating electric underfloor heating elements.
Preparation of all substrates is crucial to the success and longevity of all installations. All substrates, as stated in BS 5385, must be rigid, flat, clean, dry and sound and be free of any contaminants. Anything that could compromise adhesion to the substrate, such as dust, dirt, oil, grease, laitance, sealers, waxes and curing agents will need to be mechanically removed. Ensure that all substrates and backgrounds are strong enough to carry the weight of the compound as well as all finished floor coverings and fixing materials.
Substrates require priming prior to the application of Tilemaster LevelFlex+ DEPTH. Priming the substrate will minimise the risk of pinholes forming, allow for the best flow properties and will also prolong the working time of the product.
Suitably prepared and sufficiently dry substrates, prime with Tilemaster Primeplus diluted 1 part Primeplus to 3 parts water. If the substrate is overly porous then further coats of diluted primer may be required.
Substrates such as Tilemaster FAST One Coat DPM, flooring grade asphalt & bitumen, steel and existing vinyl, ceramic, porcelain and natural stone tiles should be primed with one coat of Tilemaster Prime+ Grip. Primers should be used in accordance with instructions printed on the bottle and must be allowed to dry before applying Tilemaster LevelFlex+ DEPTH.
MIXING AND APPLICATION:
A 20kg bag of Tilemaster LevelFlex+ DEPTH requires 4.5 – 5.0 litres of water.
Add the pre-measured water to a clean bucket and slowly add the powder whilst mixing with an electric paddle. Mix until a smooth and lump free consistency is obtained. Do not add further water once mixed. Exceeding 5.0 litres of water per 20kg will result in water bleed, extended drying times, a weakened mix and poor surface finish.
N.B: Once mixed, Tilemaster LevelFlex+ DEPTH will remain workable in the bucket for 25 – 35 minutes at 23°C. Due to the rapid setting properties of Tilemaster LevelFlex+ DEPTH, it is important to apply the mixed product without delay.
Pour the compound onto the prepared surface and trowel to the required depth of between 2mm and 85mm. If the depth of compound applied allows, the use of an aeration roller can be used, but is not required, to remove entrapped air and smooth out flow lines. The setting time will then depend on atmospheric conditions/temperatures – it will be slowed by lower temperatures and accelerated by higher temperatures.
Tilemaster LevelFlex+ DEPTH is ideal for pump applications. Mix in accordance with the pump manufacturer’s instructions and ensure that regular flow checks are carried out. Ensure the water content is correct and that there is no surface separation. Test samples of the product must be conducted to ensure the pump lines are able to send product through before the product starts to set.
SETTING AND COVERING:
In ideal conditions, LevelFlex+ DEPTH will be set to walk on after 2.5 hours. LevelFlex+ DEPTH must be left to dry before applying the final surface flooring. This is typically after 2.5 hours for ceramic, porcelain and natural stone tiles. Thicker applications may require a longer time to dry prior to applying floor coverings. If there is no airflow within site conditions, the drying time may be restricted.
