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.

In theory yes - but I would urge you to mix up a small amount (250g perhaps) with a proportional amount of water (50ml) and see if you think it will self-level.

Then either proceed if you are happy with it - or try adding quite a lot more water (record how much) and see at what point it will actually "do what is says on the tin".

Adding 5 litres of water to a 25Kg sack = a thick sticky mass which will no more smooth your floor than a sackful of cobbles.

Question
Can this self leveling be used straight on top of a plastic damp proof membrane?
If so, would i need to glue the membrane to the floor first and perhaps add a layer of glue on top before i lay the self levelling compound?

It this wouldn't work, how would i come across laying the both of them, what else would i need?

Not completely certain of what you are doing but if you are leveling a concrete floor seal floor with pva/water allow to dry then use self levelling compound.When compound sets place moisture barrier on top.Then underlay then carpet/laminate.The self leveller needs to stick to the base properly otherwise it will crack and break up.

Question
How long will I have to let latex dry on a concrete floor before I put my laminate floor down.
I have got an uneven concrete floor in the dinning room, my builder told me that I'll need to put latex down to level it before putting DPM layer and then laminate floor. He mentioned that laminate floor can be put down in 24 hrs after latexing the floor.
Is that true ?

I would probably give it a bit longer than 48 hours.... really depends on at what depth.

I would personally put the DPM down first (under the latex)
