We can confirm when mixing our levelling compound you will need to slowly add 1 Pack to 5 litres of clean, warm water.
Stir vigorously until a smooth, creamy paste is attained.
Do not mix more levelling compound than you can apply within 20 minutes.

Whilst you would be able to use this product to level a concrete floor we would always recommend the use of a damp proof membrane when fitting a wooden floor. We would consider this to be standard practice to protect the flooring from moisture.

Question
Latex or none latex self leveling compound ?
I have a two week old screed floor (not sealed and dusty if rubbed firmly) which has two areas that need to be raised 20-25mm. I’ve been told I should only put a latex levelling compound onto a screed floor because it will bond better than non latex. Q: is this so?
Q: Should I use a latex compound on the screed but then build up the depth with Deep Base compound (Product 154050) or is there a better product that will Bond and do the Depth in one go?

Hi,
I think you can use this, just put a little bit more water to it. About 6 litre per bag!

Answer 1
I'd tend to go with a latex based, as it's much more resilient to flexing, but aim for 4-5mm depth over the heat mat. Try something fibre-reinforced like Mira X Plan - a shade over £20 for a 25kg bag.
