A self-leveling compound is a cementitious dry mix that is used to smoothen concrete subfloor. It is very crucial to have an even subfloor when installing resilience flooring (example Vinyl or rubber flooring) and SPC flooring with tongue and groove design. Resilience flooring will reflect the waviness and magnify the unevenness of the subfloor easily due to its flexibility. As for SPC flooring, the tongue will crack easily if the floor is not even or flat.
Builden’s self levelling and smoothing compound is designed to produce a smooth, flat surface when applied to hard, rigid sub-floors such as sand/cement screeds, concrete for the installation of Vinyl/Rubber/Linoleum, SPC, LVT and laminated wooden floorings, as well as carpet tile.
