LEVELiTe F10


Self Levelling Screed Compound

LEVELiTe F10 is a screed smoothing and levelling compound with excellent general purpose attributes for preparing screeds prior to the installation of vinyl and wood laminate flooring as well as carpets and other floor covering requiring a smooth, level finish.

 

Surface Preperation


NOTE: For internal use only due to the inability to control environmental factors such as wind or heat. It
is recommended that direct to ground sub-floors be protected from rising damp to prevent dimensional
changes in the floor covering (confirm the maximum permissible moisture content that the floor covering
or adhesive can tolerate). LEVELiTe® F10 is resistant to rising moisture and should not swell or delaminate
if exposed to reasonable moisture. Standard European practice has evolved that when vinyl flooring is to
be installed, the substrate is to be sealed with a water based epoxy moisture barrier such as VAPORiTe®
+PLUS
, or similar. The surface must be hard, sound, dry and free of dust, dirt and other materials such as
grease, oil and paint.

Priming


BONDiTe® primer and bonding agent is an essential component in the priming prior to application of
LEVELiTe®. It acts as a pore sealer which will maintain the flow life and prevent air bubbles rising through
the applied LEVELiTe® F10 screed smoothing compound. Accordingly it is necessary to prime all surfaces
with BONDiTe®. With very smooth non-absorbent sub-floors e.g. power floated floors, epoxy coated water
barriers, and ceramic tiles it is essential to apply iTe SLURRY® to promote better Inter-coat adhesion and/or
to lightly grind the surface to promote adhesion.

Mixing


Use 5.0 litres of water per 24.0 kg bag. Do NOT over-water. Add the powder to the required amount of
clean cool water in a clean mixing container whilst using a +/-600 rpm electric paddle mixed until a lump
free screed is produced. This will take approximately 3 to 4 minutes. Stop the mixer and scrape the inside
of the mixing vessel to allow any unmixed product to fall onto the paste. Briefly remix the LEVELiTe® F10
and then discharge onto the affected floor.

Mixed LEVELiTe® F10 should be applied within 5 minutes at 20˚C. This time is extended at lower
temperatures and reduced at higher temperatures.

Thickness


LEVELiTe®F10 can be applied at a minimum thickness of 0.3mm to a maximum of 10mm in a single
application.

Multiple layers can be applied to the dry previous layer with a BONDiTe® application on top of the previous
application, in order to build up to the required thickness. Contact our technical advisors for detailed
information. Bulking-up of the product can be a viable option for significant sub-floor deviations where
speed of drying is a factor.

Coverage


Approximately 1.7 kg of LEVELiTe® F10 per 1 mm thickness per m². E.g. one 24kg bag of LEVELiTe® F10
will give enough material to cover approximately 4.5m² at an average thickness of 3mm.

NOTE: The coverage figure is based on a flat level surface. Additional material should be allowed for where
the surface is rough or uneven.

General


All data given was tested at a room temperature of 20˚C and 50% humidity. Please be aware that the
technical data may alter if the climatic conditions are in contrast to that in which the product has been
tested, either hardening more quickly or setting slower.

Warning


Do not ingest. Keep away from children and pets. Do not empty into a drain. Wear rubber gloves, and in
the event of contamination, rinse thoroughly with cold water. Seek medical advice if irritation or discomfort
persists. For further information, consult the relevant health and safety data sheet.

GREEN BUILDING COUNCIL VOC REQUIREMENTS

LEVELiTe® F10 contains no Volatile Organic Compounds and therefore is totally compliant with all relevant
requirements to be classed as “green”. The standard short report, theoretical VOC content declaration
and VOC confirmation notice is available on request or can be downloaded from our website— www.iteproducts.co.za.

Important Notice


The information supplied in our literature or given by our employees is given in good faith. We reserve the
right to update this information at any time without prior notice.

Warranty


LEVELiTe®F10 is guaranteed to be free of any manufacturing defect.

Application


Pour the mixed LEVELiTe® F10 onto the prepared sub-floor. The mixed mortar will flow out and self-level.
Use a suitable notched epoxy rake or spreader to obtain the required thickness; while a long-handled pin
leveller/rake with height adjustment will simplify this operation and yield more consistent results. A long
handled spiked roller must be used to prevent air blisters from marring the finished surface. LEVELiTe®
F10
has excellent self-healing properties which extend for some 30 minutes or longer after the pour, which
minimises cold joints and surface irregularities.

Description


LEVELiTe® F10 self-levelling screed smoothing compound developed for residential type applications that
sets to 18MPa. It is a free flowing screeding compound that has been specifically formulated for smoothing
rough or uneven sub-floors with a product prior to the installation of floor coverings. LEVELiTe® F10 is
suitable for use on cementitious screeds, power-floated concrete surfaces, hardened, well adhered old
adhesive residues that have been ground to remove excess residue, and soundly adhered ceramic and
similar surfaces. The applied compound can be walked on after 3 to 4 hours. Floor coverings – such as
carpeting, vinyl tiles and sheeting, laminated and engineered wood – can typically be installed 24 hours
after application.
LEVELiTe® F10 can be applied in thicknesses from 0,3mm to 10mm in a single application.
Usage rate is 1,7Kg per m²per 1mm thickness.
Once cured LEVELiTe® F10 is resistant to moisture and will not swell or soften when exposed to moisture.
