NORCROS Adhesives’ latest addition to its range of levelling products is said to be proving very popular in the contract flooring market. Norcros Pro AF Low Prep Self Smoothing Levelling Compound is an ammonia- and latex-free, 2-part levelling compound suitable for use on most substrates without the need for priming.
Norcros Pro AF Leveller has been formulated for use over old adhesive residues including bitumen, historically a problematic material to bond to. There’s no need to prime or remove firmly bonded residues. This greatly reduces the time usually required for preparation of the substrate to be levelled, says the company.
It adds: ‘The quick-drying formulation means ceramic and porcelain tiles can be laid in three hours. It also acts as a final floor finish for vinyl and other floorcoverings, which can be laid in four hours.
Norcros Pro AF Leveller can be used from 0-12mm in one application. With the addition of coarse aggregates, the thickness can be increased to 30mm. The product is suitable for use in installations incorporating underfloor heating systems.’
‘This latest addition to our range of levellers has already found a big following among flooring installers,’ says Mandy Searle, head of technical services at Norcros Adhesives. ‘The benefits of both an ammonia- and latex-free formulation, combined with the requirement for minimal preparation and technical competence will ensure that Norcros Pro AF Leveller earns its place alongside our well-regarded family of levellers.’
The Norcros Adhesives levelling range already comprises seven products, including Universal Levelling Compound and several specialist levellers, such as Norcros Pro 30 Fast Track Eco Levelling Compound, which contains recycled crushed glass rather than quarried materials, says the company.
It concludes: ‘The addition of the new product further strengthens the offer from Norcros Adhesives to the flooring market. Norcros Pro AF Leveller comes in grey and is supplied in a 20kg bag. It conforms to CT-C14-F6.’
