Tilemaster Adhesives Flexilevel – Self levelling compound
Tilemaster Adhesives Flexilevel – self levelling compound is a rapid setting, flexible, fibre reinforced and protein free cement based formulation designed for smoothing and levelling subfloors prior to the installation of floor coverings.
FlexiLevel can be applied from depths of 2mm – 50mm in one application and it is suitable for use on all common substrates including underfloor heating systems and timber substrates – the minimum application depth on timber substrates is 4mm. FlexiLevel is fast setting and therefore ceramic, porcelain and natural stone tiles can be applied after 3 hours and impervious floor finishes such as decorative vinyl after 24 hours.
Mixing and application
Always mix by adding powder to water. Tilemaster FlexiLevel is mixed with a water content of 5.5 – 6.0 litres of water per 25kg of Tilemaster FlexiLevel. In a clean mixing vessel, add the pre-measured water before adding the powder component slowly whilst mixing with an electric paddle until a lump free consistency is obtained. Once mixed, allow the product to stand for 2 minutes and stir again prior to application. Do not add further water once mixed.
Exceeding 6.0 litres of water per 25kg will result in water bleed and therefore extended drying times and a weakened mix.
N.B. Once mixed, Tilemaster FlexiLevel will remain workable in the bucket for 20 – 30
minutes at 20°C.
Pour a small quantity onto the prepared surface and trowel down lightly to a depth between 2mm and 50mm. The use of a spiked roller is recommended immediately in thin applications in order to remove entrapped air and smooth out flow lines. Setting time will depend on atmospheric conditions/ temperatures, it will be slowed by lower temperatures and accelerated by higher temperatures. If a depth greater than 50mm is required, allow the first application to dry and prime with surface with Tilemaster Primeplus at a 3:1 ratio before applying a subsequent coat. Clean tools immediately after use with clean water.
Tilemaster FlexiLevel is ideal for pump application. Mix in accordance with the pump manufacturer’s instructions and ensure that regular flow checks are carried out. Ensure the water content is correct and that there is no surface separation.
