FLOWCRETE SLU (Self-Leveling Underlayment) is an economical easy to use self-leveling underlayment designed for interior applications. It can be applied over various substrates including concrete and ceramic tile to create a smooth flat surface. FLOWCRETE SLU utilizes Low Alkali Cements allowing various finished floor goods to be applied quickly in some cases as soon as 3 hours.
FLOWCRETE SLU contains Post-Industrial recycled materials.
Use FLOWCRETE SLU to level and smooth concrete and other floors prior to the installation of carpet, ceramic tile, vinyl tile, wood parquet, etc. It can be used in new construction, renovation and corrective work.
FLOWCRETE SLU may be used at or above grade to level concrete floors, wood floors, over exterior glue
plywood, over ceramic tile and over cut-back and adhesive residue. Apply FLOWCRETE SLU from featheredge to 3 inches in one application without addition of aggregate.
FLOWCRETE SLU hardens through hydration and dryingwith no shrinkage, cracking or spalling.
Working Time: 15-20 minutes, Color: Gray, Time to Traffic 3-4 Hours, Install Floor Goods 3-72 Hours (depending on product)
EASY TO USE
Can Be Applied Up To 3 Inches, Can Be Applied Over Concrete & Ceramic Tile, Allows Rapid Installation of Most Floor Coverings
Concrete Slabs: All surfaces must be clean and structurally sound; free of dust, grease, oil, paint, sealers, etc. Pores of the concrete surface must be open to permit proper bonding. If a minimum bond strength of 72 psi is not achieved surface preparation will be necessary by sand-blasting, scarifying or acid etching. If acid etch is used, the surface must be neutralized and brushed thoroughly. Expansion joints in the substrate should be carried through the FLOWCRETE SLU. Prime surface according to “Priming” instructions and install FLOWCRETE SLU. Cutback Adhesive on Concrete: Removed as much cutback as possible by mechanical abrasion leaving only a thin residue firmly bonded to concrete. Remember your bond will only be as good as the bond of the cutback to the concrete. Water soluble adhesives must be completely removed. Coat the surface with a thin uniform amount of ACRYLIC-BOND. Let this coat dry completely, then Prime surface according to “Priming” instructions and install.
