What Is A Self-Levelling Compound?

Laying concrete over a large area is no easy feat. Wet concrete is heavy and extremely difficult to move and manipulate… especially if you aren’t a trained professional! However, it’s important to get it right as this forms the basis of your floor, so you need it to be strong and straight. This is where self-levelling compounds come in.

A self-levelling compound is a polymer-modified cement that has been engineered to offer high-flow characteristics. This means it has great flowability, making it ideal for us in the preparation of laying floor coverings. 

Self-levelling compound can be used on a range of substrates, including, concrete, screed, tiles, timber and more.
