LEVELiTe F30 – High quality self-levelling screed compound, 21.5kg bag

LEVELiTe F30


Self Levelling Screed Compound

LEVELiTe F30 is a high quality self-levelling compound with excellent self-levelling and smoothing properties 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 with high traffic carrying requirements.

 

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® F30 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 surface bed is to be sealed with an epoxy moisture barrier, or similar. VAPORiTe®
+PLUS
epoxy moisture barrier system has been specifically developed for this purpose. Please refer to
the VAPORiTe®+PLUS data sheet. The surface must be hard, sound, dry and free of dust, dirt and other
materials such as grease, oil and paint.

Due to its flow characteristics, sealing strips should be placed at doorways or where the levelling
compound is not desired.

Priming


BONDiTe® primer and bonding agent is an essential component in priming the substrate 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® 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® or to lightly grind the surface
to promote adhesion. When the slurry is dry, the surface should be ready for application of the LEVELiTe®
F30
levelling compound.

Mixing


Use 5.0 liters of water per 21,5 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® F30
and then discharge onto the affected floor.

Mixed LEVELiTe® F30 should be applied within 5 minutes at 20˚C. This time is extended at lower
temperatures and reduced at higher temperatures.

Thickness


LEVELiTe® F30 can be applied at a minimum thickness of 0.3mm to a maximum of 15mm in a single
application.

When applying LEVELiTe® F30 at a thickness of over 15mm, incorporate up to an equal volume of 3 or
6mm clean, dry, fines free, graded gravel. Alternatively, multiple layers can be applied to the dry previous
layer. 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 1.5 kg of LEVELiTe® F30 per 1 mm thickness per m². E.g. one 21.5kg bag of LEVELiTe®F30
will give enough material to cover approximately 4.8m² 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.

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® F30 is guaranteed to be free of any manufacturing defect. iTe PRODUCTS further warrants
that if LEVELiTe® F30 is applied in accordance with the relevant method statement issued for the specific
project, by an approved applicator, the system is guaranteed for the life of the floorcovering.

Application


Pour the mixed LEVELiTe® F30 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®
F30
has excellent self-healing properties which extend for some 30 minutes or longer after the pour, which
minimises cold joints and surface irregularities.

VOC Requirements


LEVELiTe®F30 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.

Description


LEVELiTe® F30 self-levelling floor screed compound is a free flowing self-levelling compound developed
for heavy commercial and light industrial applications that sets to 25MPa. LEVELiTe® F30 has been
specifically formulated for levelling and smoothing rough or uneven sub-floors prior to the installation of
floor coverings and is suitable for use on cementitious screeds, concrete power floated surfaces, hardened
old adhesive residues and soundly adhered ceramic and similar surfaces. Its high strength formulation has
been designed to repair a variety of sub-floor types, including cement/sand screeds, and concrete floors.
The applied compound can be walked on after 2 to 3 hours. Floor coverings – such as carpet, tiles, vinyl
and engineered wood – can typically be installed 24 hours after application. LEVELiTe® F30 can be applied
in a feathered finish down to approximately 0,3mm, up to 15mm thick in one application. LEVELiTe® F30 is
resistant to moisture once cured, and will not swell or delaminate. Final strength is 25MPa. LEVELiTe® F30
is pumpable.
