ULTRAFLOOR Level IT Hydra Bond is described as a ground-breaking, water-based floor leveller that can be easily applied to bitumen and adhesive residues. Until now, bag-and-bottle levellers were most commonly used for these types of substrates, however this ‘revolutionary smoothing compound offers the properties of traditional bag-and-bottle mixes without the need for a liquid additive’.
Says the company: ‘What’s more, Level IT Hydra Bond utilises UltraFloor’s unique Ecosphere Technology – a process which enhances application and boasts unrivalled flow properties.
Exceptional flow is something that users of Level IT Two will also benefit from. Fondly known as the contractor’s favourite floor leveller, UltraFloor Level IT Two is a fantastic general purpose, mid-strength smoothing underlayment ideal for a wide variety of subfloors in most commercial and domestic flooring projects.
‘For the preparation of difficult substrates such as old adhesive residues, UltraFloor recommends the use of Level IT Bond – a semi-rapid curing, high performance smoothing underlayment with exceptional adhesion characteristics.’
It continues: ‘Level and lay in a day with UltraFloor’s iconic Level IT Super30. Designed for fast turnaround projects, Level IT Super30 can be walked over in as little as 30 minutes, is ready to receive unbonded floorcoverings after 45 minutes, and bonded coverings in just 90 minutes.
If you’re looking for a floor leveller with ultimate flexibility, then Level IT Super Flex 30 is the product for you! A high polymer content resulting in excellent flexible properties, makes Level IT Super Flex 30 the product of choice for steel mezzanine decks and flooring grade plywood.’
Adds the company: ‘Known by the industry as the ‘game-changer’, Level IT Pro30 is a high performance, high tolerance smoothing underlayment which can be used over most common subfloors, such as adhesive residue or bitumen, without the need for priming. This superb and versatile product has extra tolerance for on-site imperfections, which reduces the need for intensive subfloor preparation and is ideal for prepping awkward subfloors for luxury finishes in record time.’
Developed for the renovation of existing floors, Level IT Renovate is reportedly fibre-reinforced for added strength and to minimise the risk of hairline cracks – reducing a common cause of costly failures. What’s more, Level IT Renovate can now be used externally and as a final wear course. Also available in UltraFloor’s range of smoothing underlayments is Level IT Smooth – a super smooth leveller ideal for LVT installations – and Level IT Top and Level IT Base.
‘UltraFloor’s portfolio of subfloor preparation materials also includes repair and finishing compounds, moisture protection materials and ancillary products – everything you need for a smooth-running project every single time.’
