How is self-levelling cement constructed?
Six steps to self-levelling cement flooring practices.
The self-levelling cement range of products differs in construction process due to different models, different base floors and different uses. This article only describes the general process of self-levelling cement construction, please refer to the construction process and specific requirements of each manufacturer for specific products.
Requirements for the base floor: concrete floors with a strength of C20 or above.
Requirements for the construction environment: construction temperature should preferably be above 10°C, avoid construction below 5°C.
Excessively humid environments are not suitable for construction.
1. Base ground treatment: first use a grinder to roughly grind the base ground to remove loose material.
2. application of special interface agent (not all emulsions can be used as interface agents).
3. prepare the slurry: add water precisely according to the manufacturer’s regulations, the amount of water blended is different for different types of self-levelling cement and it is recommended to use an electronic scale for weighing.
4. Mixing: mix well with a special mixer for self-levelling cement, with a continuous mixing time of 2-3 minutes (different products, mixing time varies).
5. Flow promotion and thickness setting: pour the mixed slurry onto the construction surface according to the construction requirements and use the construction scraper to promote flow and thickness setting.
6. Defoaming: use the defoaming roller to eliminate air bubbles and height differences.
