POURITE FLOOR LEVELLING & SELF-SMOOTHING COMPOUND
Pourite is a floor leveling single component polymer-rich cementitious material that is mixed with clean potable water on-site and used to create low shrinkage, strong-flowing, and self-smoothing plaster.
Pourite can be easily applied over a variety of properly prepared concrete and masonry surfaces or under-floor heating wires to produce a smooth level surface prior to the application of tiles, vinyl, carpet or other floor coverings.
Pourite can be applied in multiple layers with each layer being no more than 10mm thick or it can be economically extended with a graded aggregate to fill greater depths. It is compatible with most commonly used adhesives and can normally receive floor coverings within 24 hours of installation
The concrete substrate must be finished in strict accordance with the specifiers/ manufacturer’s specifications and recommended installation procedures. The concrete supplier’s required curing time must be allowed after placement of the original floor to ensure it has completely cured, shrunk, and stabilized. Failing to allow the floor to completely cure can lead to excess shrinkage and cracking of the Pourite SLC after it has been applied to the substrate.
All solid concrete substrates must be fully cured and dry, in accordance with AS1884-1985 (maximum moisture content 5.5% or 70% humidity). New concrete floors must be at least 21 days old prior to any application of Pourite SLC.
All loose or damaged surface material must be removed by, water blasting, captive shot blasting or mechanical wire brushing and then vacuumed and repaired prior to being primed with Pourite Primer. All surface imperfections such as blowholes, large cracks, and spalling must all be patched and leveled to required tolerances and smoothness with recommended Specialized plaster materials before the Pourite SLC is applied. All nibs, protrusions, and excess mortar on the surface of the floor or other large irregularities in the slab that could affect the finished surface of the Pourite SLC must be ground off prior to topping. It is always better to level high irregularities than apply excess Pourite SLC to cover them.
