Palace Chemicals Thick Bed floor leveller is a polymer-modified, fibre re-reinforced, cement based internal sub-floor smoothing underlayment, giving a consistently level
screed from 3mm up to 80mm in one single application, which is then ready to receive foot traffic after 3 hours and tiles after 4 hours and vinyl after 24 hours.
Thick bed incorporates specially blended cements, graded sands, built-in polymer, anti shrink agents, micro-fibres and organic super-plasticisers
and is mixed only with water to give ideal properties over a comprehensive range of typically encountered floor surfaces such as tampered or worn concrete and sand/cement floor screeds as well as Mastic Asphalt, Anhydrite Screeds*, flooring grade Plywood, Cement Backer boards, existing tiles and similarly dense impermeable surfaces. It is particularly suited when installing heated sub-floors where its’ thick-bed is usually sufficient to accommodate most types of heating system.
Palace Chemicals Thick Bed when applied over a smooth even non-absorbent floor at an average 3mm depth will cover at a rate of one 20kg bag per 5.0M². Palace Chemicals Thick Bed floor leveller is not recommended as a final wearing surface. Adequate ventilation is essential during the drying process and any draughts or exposure to excessive heat sources must be eliminated to ensure consistent drying.
Thick Bed when applied at 20°C & 65% RH under ideal site conditions will allow for a working time of up to 20 minutes and then reach initial set after 1 hour. Under the above conditions it will rapidly cure and harden to allow light foot traffic after 3 hours and will be ready to receive tiles after 4 hours and soft flooring after 24 hours.
Palace Chemicals Thick Bed is supplied in 20kg moisture resistant bags and should have a storage life of not less than 12 months if stored in dry, un-opened and frost-free conditions.
