Weber gets level
THE ‘high performance, UK manufactured, fibre-modified’ weberfloor 4310 fibre flow floor levelling compound by Saint-Gobain Weber is reportedly proving to be the perfect answer for the fast, efficient renovation of existing floors, and floating floor construction, in domestic and commercial applications.
weberfloor 4310 fibre flow is a pump-applied screed formulated from special cements, aggregates, binders and chemical admixtures that can be applied at depths between 5-50mm.
It’s supplied as a casein-free pre-blended dry powder and is suitable for levelling concrete, lightweight concrete, wooden boards, existing tiles and underfloor heating systems.
In addition to efficient pump application weberfloor 4310 fibre flow can receive foot traffic after just two to four hours.
With ‘excellent spreading and smoothing characteristics’ weberfloor 4310 fibre flow can be covered after one to three weeks following installation, depending on layer thickness and drying conditions, with ceramic and terrazzo tiles, carpet, flexible floorcoverings and parquet, and is suitable for heated and wooden floors.
The fibre-modified formulation is said to improve durability and robustness.
After thorough cleaning, the substrate should be prepared with weberfloor 4716 primer to improve adhesion and prevent the formation of air bubbles. For floating floors weberfloor 4945 fibre mesh is recommended.
weberfloor 4310 fibre flow was donated by Saint-Gobain Weber to DIY SOS The Big Build Veteran’s Special in the transformation of derelict Victorian properties to comfortable homes for ex-service personnel.
It was used in conjunction with Leca Insufill, the lightweight aggregate, to fill empty voids beneath the decayed timber floors of the properties.
