Suggested applications

Do not install on a loose and/or crumbling floor, as the self levelling compound is unable to integrate into a poor substrate. Only mix one bag at a time, to ensure that the product has had time to develop the necessary performance characteristics.

Insiders Tip

Self-levelling compound is to be poured on to the required surface. A spiked roller can be used to fill spaces, increase surface area or reduce thickness/ high spots. Allow the compound to cure without further adjustment as this will weaken the installation and lead to premature failure.

KWIKgrout

Is a cement-based powdered tile grout for interior and exterior use available in white, ivory, light grey, dove grey, light brown, brown & charcoal. Coverage will vary depending on the application with a minimum setting time of 24 Hours.

Suggested applications

The KWIKscreed self-levelling compound is to be poured on to the required surface. A steel notched trowel can be used to fill spaces, increase surface area or reduce thickness/high spots. Once installed, allow the self-levelling compound to cure without further adjustment as this will weaken the installation and lead to premature failure.

Insiders Tip

Never use butt joints when you are grouting. We recommend using a minimum of a 2mm joint for walls & 3mm joint for floors to allow for the natural movement of the concrete beneath. When used in combination with KWIKbond, the grouting will be further resistant to mildew and discolouration.
