Description

FAST-TRACK FLOOR LEVELLER is a fast-setting, polymer fortified, floor levelling compound which gives outstanding high early strength using specially formulated rapid drying binders, free from Portland cement to maximise early hydration & rapid strength development. It is readily flowable across all surface types, including WBP plywood and floors fitted with sub-surface heating elements and can be finished off to an ultra-smooth underlayment surface, ideal for use circumstances where rapid access soon after laying is essential. It sets after 30 minutes and will be ready to receive tile fixing after 45 to 60 minutes. Impervious “soft” floor coverings such as vinyl & linoleum can be laid on this surface after 90 minutes.

  • Ultra-Fast Drying – ready to walk on after 30 minutes
  • Ready to receive ceramic tiles after 45 minutes
  • Apply decorative floor finishes after 90 minutes
  • Levels from 2mm up to 25mm in a single application
  • Based on specialist advanced binder technology
  • Suitable for use with heated sub-floors and plywood overlay

Surface Preparation: The receiving floor surface must be hard, sound and free from grease, dust, floor polish, laitance and loose deleterious materials such as worn surface coatings & plaster. Any adhesive & coatings residues must first be tested to determine if they are “moisture sensitive” and then removed if necessary. Prior to laying PALACE FAST-TRACK, the base concrete or sand/cement screed should be tested to confirm that it has had sufficient time to dry out to reach consistent moisture reading of <75% R.H. (< 3.0% residual moisture content) – tested as per BS 8203:2017 – Annex B. Where it is not known whether an effective structural DPM is in place, or where the moisture test results show values in excess of 75% R.H (or > 3.0% residual moisture content), then a liquid damp-proof membrane such as moisture suppressant PALACE 1-COAT DPM should be applied onto the prepared concrete sub-base, before it is over-laid with PALACE FAST-TRACK levelling compound. Although PALACE FAST-TRACK will bond readily to most solid sub-floors, the application of a primer on highly porous surfaces will assist with maximising flow time & adhesion strength. PALACE MULTI-PRIME diluted 1 part to 3 parts water which can be used for this purpose. Highly porous substrates may need a pre-coat of primer at 3 parts water mixed with 1-part primer (allowed to completely dry) and then a second coat diluted 1-part water to 1 part primer before applying the levelling underlayment. Note: on very absorbent substrates a third coat may be required diluted 1-part water to 1-part primer. Anhydrite Screed (Calcium Sulphate) based floors are being over-laid, the application of two coats of PALACE MULTI-PRIME will be necessary to form a barrier & avoid any adverse interaction between the cement-based PALACE FAST-TRACK and the gypsum-based anhydrite screed beneath it.

Specific Substrate Preparation: Although PALACE FAST-TRACK will bond readily to most solid sub-floors, the application of a primer on highly porous surfaces will reduce the risk of pinholes in the level finish whilst also maximising flow time & adhesion strength. PALACE MULTI PRIME diluted 1 to 3 can be used for this purpose, also where Anhydrite Screed (Calcium Sulphate) based floors are being over-laid, the application of two coats of MULTI-PRIME will be necessary to form a barrier & avoid any adverse interaction between the cement-based PALACE FAST-TRACK and the gypsum-based screed beneath it. (Consult MULTI-PRIME tech datasheet).

*Anhydrite [Calcium Sulphate] based Screeds: Mechanically remove any loose material/laitance to give a clean, dry, solid dust-free surface prior to the application of PALACE MULTI-PRIME (first cost diluted 1 to 1 then 2nd coat neat) to ensure a protective barrier is established. Drying times of this class of screed can be at a rate of 1mm screed depth per day (2mm per day is > 40mm deep). Anhydrite screeds that already incorporate pre-installed underfloor heating systems can use this heat source to reduce drying times, along with de-humidifiers operating in the room, which will also speed up the drying process. The relative humidity (%RH) test results in the subfloor should be less than 75% RH, (residual moisture content < 0.5%) however where this cannot be achieved within a manageable period of time the application of a Damp -Proof Membrane (1-COAT DPM) is recommended to be applied after the MULTI-PRIME barrier preparation step (above) has already been completed.

Flooring Grade Asphalt: New asphalt must be left for a minimum of 7 days and degreased to remove surface bloom. If cracks are visible repair will be necessary to give a strong subfloor. Check the floor is in good condition and that there are no signs of de-bonding and/or hollowness.

Sand/Cement Screeds: Recently installed sand/cement screeds must be allowed a minimum of 4 weeks to dry sufficiently. Ensure new sand/cement screed is confirmed dry via consistent moisture measurements across the whole surface. Sand/cement screeds must have a moisture reading of less than 75% relative humidity (RH) before any levelling compound can be applied over them. Remove any laitance from the surface mechanically and ensure that any other contaminants are cleared from the surface. ideally by a vacuum cleaner. On porous or worn screeds, prime the surface with PALACE MULTI-PRIME diluted as 1- part primer to 3 parts water and then allow to dry.

New Concrete: Floor slabs must be allowed at least 6 weeks drying time equivalent to 1 day per mm up to an overall depth of 50mm and 2 days per mm for anything above 50mm. Ensure new concrete is tested via consistent moisture readings across the whole surface whereby a reading of less than 75% relative humidity (RH) is advised before work can commence. Remove any laitance from the surface mechanically and ensure that oil, grease curing agents and any other friable materials are removed ideally by vacuum. If the surface is relatively porous prime the surface with PALACE MULTI-PRIME diluted as 1 part to 3 parts water and allow to dry.

Dense or Power Floated Concrete: Ensure the surface has been allowed 7 days to cure. Ensure new concrete is confirmed dry via consistent moisture readings across the whole surface. Concrete screeds must have a reading of less than 75% relative humidity (RH) is advised before proceeding to over-lay. Remove any laitance or friable top finish from the surface mechanically whilst scoring & etching the surface before takins up all remaining dust residues by vacuum.

Plywood Overlay (Internal only): Check that plywood overlay is flooring grade compliant to EN 314:2 Class 3 Exterior before applying PALACE FAST-TRACK and ensure that new or existing boards are pre-conditioned to the environment in which they will be used. Plywood sheets must be a thickness of 15mm minimum & screwed to substrate at 150mm centres. Ensure there is sufficient ventilation beneath substrate and that the plywood has been fitted competently and will take the weight of the leveller, adhesive and the final anticipated in-use loading without any risk or sign of deflection. It should be dry and free of any contaminants, loose dust or dirt. Existing plywood showing signs of wear or abrasion will require priming with PALACE MULTI-PRIME diluted 3-parts water, to 1-part MULTI PRIME. New, uncontaminated plywood does not require priming prior to over-laying with PALACE FAST-TRACK.

Floors coated with a Surface Damp Proof Membrane: Damp-Proof Membrane coatings such as PALACE 1-COAT DPM should be treated as non-absorbent substrates and applications of PALACE FAST-TRACK should be completed within 12 hours of the DPM being first applied (Consult PALACE 1-COAT DPM technical datasheet). Sand blinding the freshly applied DPM will assist with improving the bond to over-laid screeds.

Underfloor Heating Systems: Heating wires must be securely fixed to a sound consistent substrate such as cement backer board. PALACE FAST-TRACK should then be applied at a thickness that allows for clearance above the elements of no less than 5mm depth of levelling compound to ensure a smooth even finish will be attained prior to laying the finished decorative or resilient surface. Always allow at least three weeks before the heating elements are switched on at the lowest setting and then only raise the temperature progressively by 2’C per day over the following week.

Mixing: PALACE FAST-TRACK floor leveller should be added to clean water in a clean container and mixed thoroughly with a power whisk fitted to an electric drill to give a smooth, lump-free, flowable & pourable levelling compound which should be applied to the intended area without delay. The recommended mixing proportions are 4.0 litres of water per 20kg sack and exceeding this recommendation will result in excess bleed and a weaker mix. The material should be mixed for a minimum of 2 minutes after the last of the powder is added ensuring the mixing head is below the surface to minimise air entrapment, after which time the free-flowing screed will be ready for application directly onto the prepared substrate.

Application: Pour the freshly mixed levelling compound onto the prepared surface and use a straight-edged steel float to ensure the compound is evenly spread into all areas and corners. PALACE FAST-TRACK will readily flow across a flat surface and smooth out trowel marks for about 20 to 30 minutes before it begins to firm up. Do not allow the mixed material to stand for a prolonged period in the bucket as this will shorten its’ flow & open time. The use of a spiked roller will assist in removing air bubbles and achieving a consistently smooth surface finish, particularly between adjacent mixes of product. Only spike roll whilst the product is still in its fluid state, usually for about 10 minutes after initial application. The maximum total application thickness for this product is up to a depth of 25mm. In ideal conditions (20’C), it will remain flowable for 10 minutes and then. after about 30 mins, will have reached the final set sufficient to take light foot traffic. All tools & mixing equipment should be washed immediately after use with clean running water before the material reaches its’ initial setting time.

Curing & Drying: PALACE FAST-TRACK applied at 20’C & 65% RH under ideal site conditions will allow for a short working time of up to 15-20 minutes and then reach the initial set soon after. Under the above conditions, it will rapidly cure to allow light foot traffic after 30 minutes, will be ready to receive tiles after 45 minutes and soft flooring after 90 mins.

Coverage: PALACE FAST-TRACK when applied over a smooth even non-absorbent floor at an average 3mm depth will cover at a rate of one 20kg bag per 5.0M2. The use of a spiked roller will assist in removing the air bubble and achieving a smooth finish in the limited time available. PALACE FAST-TRACK will flow and smooth out trowel marks for about 10 to 15 minutes before loses its’ flow properties and begins to firm up.

Precautions: Plan & set out the area to be levelled to ensure that all the mixed material can be poured, levelled and finished off within the specified working time. Where multiple pours are required schedule each mix to be laid before the previous has set so that an even wet edge contact is maintained between each batch. Please note that elevated temperatures of both air and surface will result in a shorter working time. Do not apply PALACE FAST-TRACK when air or ground temperatures are at or below 5’C or above 30’C or if they are likely to remain below 5’C for the first 24 hours.
