Smooth self-leveling underlayment

TEC Specialty has introduced Level Set 500 HF self-leveling underlayment (SLU) that is said to achieve a smooth surface without time-consuming sanding or skim coating, cutting labour costs by up to two-thirds.

In addition, the company says, testing shows flooring adhesive coverage can increase by up to 20 percent.

The product pours like water and is pumpable for interior applications, as well as providing installers with both extended working time and longer healing time, it adds.

The underlayment is walkable within 2 to 3 hours for ceramic tile installations.

Moisture-sensitive floor coverings can be installed in 15 hours, a significant improvement over the 24 hours cure time typically needed for traditional SLU products, the company says.

The product is compatible with wood, vinyl planks and sheet goods, linoleum, rubber, ceramic and porcelain tile, and VCT.

The product is also suitable for substrates such as concrete, pavers, cement backerboard, hardwood, plywood, gypsum substrates, tile, terrazzo, metal, VCT and OSB.
