Ultra-rapid setting self-levelling flooring compound

TILEMASTER Adhesives says it has the answer for those rapid repairs that need to be carried out in term time when classrooms and halls need to be back in use as quickly as possible. The company’s fast track system reportedly allows installers to pre-smooth the floor, install a damp-proof membrane and a smoothing compound, then fit the floor all in one day. Traditionally this has been at least a two-day project. The timetable is set out below by Tilemaster Adhesives:
Start the day by pre-smoothing the floor with Tilemaster Super Flow 30. This is an ultra-rapid setting self-levelling flooring compound that can be used without priming on most substrates. It can therefore be used directly on top of most existing substrates to pre-smooth the surface, where required, prior to applying a DPM.

As little as 90 minutes later, Tilemaster FAST One Coat DPM can be applied – as its name implies, this dampproof membrane only needs one coat and cures in between four-to-five hours, providing protection from damp cementitious screeds with up to 98% relative humidity.

Once the DPM has cured, a final layer of Tilemaster Super Flow 30 should be applied to ensure the surface is perfectly flat and smooth and ready to receive the floorcovering, and allow to dry for 90 minutes.

Once the floor is smoothed, Tilemaster Eco-3000HT should be used to install the floorcovering. This high temperature universal adhesive is suitable for installing LVT, PVC, vinyl flooring as well as carpet and textiles onto a wide variety of substrates.

It’s suitable for use in conservatories, as well as other buildings with large expanses of glass where direct sunlight may heat the floor. Tilemaster Eco-3000HT has been formulated with a fast tacking-off time. Flooring can be installed after as little as 10 minutes, when the adhesive is semi-tacked off and has reached its ‘anti-slide’ state.
