Any newly-laid or screeded floor surface is likely to need levelling with the use of a self-levelling compound to ensure there is the lowest possible height variance in the floor. This is because floors, whether concrete or other material, are typically laid to fairly inaccurate tolerances. The leveller acts as an intermediate layer, which can then be tiled over, or any other type of floor covering can be applied.
Norcros Adhesives offers an expanding range of levellers for different applications. Norcros Pro 30 Fast Track Levelling Compound is an environmentally friendly product, which contains recycled crushed glass to replace quarried sand.
It is a flexible, single-part leveller that’s suitable for use on a variety of substrates in depths from 2mm to 30mm in a single application, without the need for additional aggregate. It is ready to tile after just 45 minutes, and can receive impervious floor coverings after 90 minutes, allowing early foot traffic and fast-track tile fixing.
Norcros Pro 30 Fast Track Eco is also suitable for encapsulating under-tile heating mats and cables, protecting the heating elements during the tile-fixing process as well as providing a level surface for tiling. It is suitable for use on timber floors which have been overlaid with 15-18mm WBP or marine-grade plywood. The product comes in a 20kg pack.
Norcros Pro 50 Levelling Compound is a single part, fibre-reinforced self-smoothing floor underlayment, suitable for use from 3mm to 50mm in one application without the need for additional granite chippings. It is ideal for levelling a variety of substrates including concrete, screed, flooring grade asphalt, terrazzo and quarry and vinyl tiles. It can be used with undertile heating mats and on overlaid timber floors.
Norcros Pro 10 Levelling Compound is a single part polymer modified self-smoothing floor levelling compound. It is suitable for levelling a variety of substrates including concrete, cement: sand screed, flooring grade asphalt, terrazzo and existing quarry and vinyl tiles. It is ideal for use with under tile heating mats where it may be used to cover the wired elements, providing a level substrate to tile to and also protecting the heating elements during the fixing process.
Alternatively Norcros 2-Part Levelling Compound may be used from feather edge to 10mm in one application without the need for additional granite chippings.
Completing the range is Norcros Pro 10+ Levelling Compound. This is a pumpable polymer-modified cementitious single part floor leveller, suitable for use up to 10mm in one application, ready for laying ceramic or porcelain tiles after approximately three hours. Natural stone tiles and soft floor coverings such as carpet, vinyl and timber can be laid after about 24 hours.
