LEVEL-X 52, 52-XT

SELF-LEVELING, SELF-SMOOTHING POLYMER MODIFIED CEMENTITIOUS TOPPINGS

DESCRIPTION:

LEVEL-X 52, 52-XT are one part, cement-based, polymer modified floor topping and leveling compounds designed to provide smooth and level floors with a minimum of time and labor.

LEVEL-X 52 can be used to prepare a wide variety of sub-floors for installation of tile, carpet, resilient flooring, wood flooring and many types of surface coatings. It may also be left exposed as a final finish in light industrial or commercial environments.52

LEVEL-X 52-XT provides rapid, economical casting, repair and leveling in exterior exposures and in wet environments. It readily accepts a variety of finishes, or may be left exposed to traffic and weather.

USES:

  • Leveling uneven concrete
  • Resurfacing frozen, rained-on or scaled concrete
  • Correcting camber problems
  • Filling depressions, sags or "birdbaths"
  • Topping and leveling pre-cast planks or tees
  • Smoothing rough concrete

FEATURES:

Bonding: Polymer modified formula develops high adhesive strength on properly prepared sub-flooring.

Ease of Application: Requires no special skills, tools or additives. LEVEL-X 52 & 52-XT are simply mixed with water using a drill or other mechanical mixer, poured, spread and left to harden. May be installed in any thickness in one lift. Readily pumpable using any standard grout pump for large installations, without separation, settling in lines or "bleeding".

Compatibility: May be used over concrete, wood, steel or polystyrene foam. Readily accepts many types of coatings, adhesives and mastics typically used in setting tile and installing carpeting or other types of flooring.

Non-Dusting and Water Resistant: Does not tend to "dust" through carpeting or crumble upon contact with moisture, the way gypsum based self-leveling compositions tend to do. Keeps from soiling carpets, lifting tiles and blistering coatings and coverings.

High Strength: Cement-based composition builds strength up to 5800 psi, matching high quality concrete.

Safety: Contains no toxic resins, solvents or diluents. Odorless, non-flammable, non-corrosive.

PROPERTIES:

Composition:

Polymer-modified cement blend with flow and set-controlling additives, extenders and fillers

Flow Time:

10 - 20 minutes at 70F

Initial Set:

45 - 90 minutes

Foot Traffic:

2 - 4 hours

Finishing/Covering:

12 - 24 hours

Mixing Ratio:

4 parts LEVEL-X 52 to 1 part water, by weight

Coverage:

1 lb. per sq. ft. at 1/8" thickness                                                    2 lb. per sq. ft. at " thickness

Minimum Application Temp:

40F (4C)

Compressive Strength:

1,200 psi at 3 hours                                           3,300 psi at 1 day                                                   4,500 psi at 7 days                                                  5,800 psi at 28 days

NOTE: Actual flow time, set time, and strength development are temperature dependent.

APPLICATION:

1. Surface Preparation: Remove all grease, oil, dirt, laitiance, wax, curing compounds, unsound concrete or other materials which may interfere with adhesion. Frozen or other substandard concrete surfaces must be cut back to the depth required to reach sound substrate for bonding.

2. Priming: Non-porous floors may require the use adhesion promoting primer P-10. Highly porous floors may require the use of sealer/primer P-20. Steel Decking should be free of rust and scale, and should be primed with P-10 primer.

NOTE: Test areas should always be installed prior to large scale application to assure compatibility and performance under actual use conditions.

3. Installation:

MIXING: To fully develop self-leveling properties without the use of excessive amounts of water, product should be mechanically mixed using mortar mixer, grout mixer or slow speed drill with mixing paddle (250 rpm). Avoid whipping excessive air inot mixes. Add LEVEL-X 52 powder to water and mix for 2-4 minutes to achieve a homogeneous, flowable, fine batter consistency. if excess liquid readily "bleeds" onto surface upon standing, reduce water ratio. Adjust consistency as required by adding more powder or water. Be consistent from batch to batch once optimum ratio for job conditions has been determined. Mix only as much material as can be applied in 5-10 minutes.

PLACEMENT: Pour or pump LEVEL-X 52 in place and spread with screed, float, squeegee or broom No troweling is required, unless "feather-edging" is desired at the perimeter of the pour. Sub-floor high spots should receive a minimum 1/8" cover. Do not retemper material which has begun to set. Discard any material not used within 20 minutes of mixing. For deep sections (1" or more), the addition of up to 50% 1/4" to 1/2"

gravel is acceptable, although this will affect workability and necessitate installation of a finishing coat of neat LEVEL-X 52.

3. Curing:

Although LEVEL-X 52 is a cement-based product, it does not require extended moist cure, and most installations will require no special curing procedures. When working in hot, dry and/or windy conditions, some misting of the surface during the first 1-3 hours after pouring may be required to avoid too-rapid drying. After this initial period, the product should be allowed to dry cure.

LEVEL-X 52 must be kept form freezing for 12 hours after installation. Do not apply at temperatures below 40F or when temperatures will drop below 40F within 8 hours of application.

4. Storage and Handling:

Store powder in dry area, off the floor. Contains cement and free silica. Avoid skin and eye contact and avoid breathing dust. Use NIOSH-approved toxic dust filter for silica. Observe all safety and handling guidelines as detailed in the Material Safety Data Sheet supplied with this product. Keep tools clean and wet during use, and clean up immediately after use. Keep packages closed when not in use.
