Setcrete High Performance floor levelling compound is the perfect option for smoothing screeds in high solar gain areas, such as conservatories, prior to the installation of a floor covering.
Such locations are subjected to sudden and wide fluctuations in temperature and require a levelling compound that can withstand the stresses and strains caused by the material’s desire to expand and contract in response to temperature changes.
Setcrete High Performance utilises a fibre-reinforced cement formulation, which performs a similar function to steel reinforcement in reinforced concrete.
As such, the levelling compound will retain its integrity throughout the sudden and rapid warming and cooling cycles encountered in a conservatory or other heavily glazed areas, including school and hospital corridors and contemporary kitchens featuring bifold doors.
Setcrete High Performance is suitable for use over both absorbent and non-absorbent subfloors, including sand/cement and concrete screeds, as well as granolithic, terrazzo, epoxy and polyurethane resins, ceramic and quarry tiles. In addition, the fibre reinforcement provides a level of flexibility that makes it suitable for use over plywood subfloors.
As such, Setcrete High Performance can be used throughout the entire floor of a property, providing a uniform, unbroken subfloor finish that offers the perfect base for the installation of floor coverings; optimising their aesthetic appearance and the long-term performance of the floor. This is particularly beneficial in modern, open plan homes, where the same flooring can run throughout the entire floor plan of a property.
The levelling compound can also be used to encapsulate mesh-mounted wire underfloor heating systems installed over both screeds and well-fixed timber (plywood) subfloors.
Commenting on the product, Setcrete Brand Manager Peter Wilson said: “Setcrete High Performance has demonstrated its superior performance in applications, such as conservatories, and it is a firm favourite amongst builders because of this, allied to its ability to be used over different subfloor types, including flexible substrates such as plywood.”
