SELF-LEVELING, SELF-SMOOTHING POLYMER MODIFIED CEMENTITIOUS TOPPING
LEVEL-X52 is a 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.
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 and in exterior exposures and wet environments.
- 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
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 is 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, stains, 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 quickly, matching high quality concrete.
Compressive Strength: ASTM C109/C109M
Time (days) Strength (psi)
Flow Time: ASTM C939, 20 minutes
Water Ratio: 1 gallon water to 45 lbs of LEVEL-X 52
Safety: Contains no toxic resins, solvents or diluents. Odorless, non-flammable, non-corrosive.
1. Surface Preparation:
Remove all grease, oil, dirt, laitance, 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.
Non-porous floors may require the use Restoration Latex RL-1 as an adhesion promoting primer.
Highly porous floors may require the use of two applications of Restoration Latex RL-1 as a sealer/primer. Steel decking should be free of rust and scale, and should be primed with SYSTEM 49 CPBA.
areas should always be installed prior to large scale application to assure compatibility and performance under actual use conditions.
A. 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 into 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.
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 re-temper 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.
Although LEVEL-X52 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 2-8 hours after pouring may be required to avoid too-rapid
drying. After this initial period, the product should be allowed to dry cure.
LEVEL-X52 must be kept form freezing for 12 hours after installation. Do not apply at temperatures below 400F or when temperatures
will drop below 400F within 8 hours of application.
5. 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.
Properly stored, closed bags have a shelf life of 12 months from date of production.
Keep tools clean and wet during use, and clean up immediately after use. Keep packages closed when not in use.
