Northern Flooring Ltd. primed then levelled a retail store floor with Ultra Floor products.
Outfit, an Arcadia Group out-of-town retail store, recently opened to the public at the Ventura Retail Park in Tamworth.
The store’s retail unit was previously occupied and therefore required sub-floor preparation prior to new floor coverings being laid and the shop fit out.
Flooring contractors, Northern Flooring Ltd. secured the project and as a long-standing Ultra Floor customer chose to use Ultra Floor Prime IT AR and Level IT two.
Ultra Floor Prime IT AR is an acrylic polymer emulsion primer suited for use over porous substrates.
The primer prepares the surface, enhancing adhesion and sealing it. The bond strength of subsequent cement based levelling compounds to the surface will then be dramatically improved, enhancing durability.
Prime IT AR is easy to use and safe to apply, and boasts excellent surface penetration and a fast drying time.
Level IT two, Ultra Floor’s best selling levelling compound, combines excellent flow characteristics with strong adhesion properties through the inclusion of a synthetic latex liquid component. This liquid component provides increased flexural capacity, ensuring Level IT two has exceptional compatibility to timber substrates.
The product’s formulation is free from ammonia, creating a very low odour material suitable for confined areas as well as open. In addition, the product is designed to compensate for shrinkage, is polymer modified and free of protein.
The leveller is ready to receive foot traffic after only 2.5 hours. It achieves thicknesses of up to 10mm deep and can be used under a DPM.
On this particular project Level IT two was laid at a depth of 4mm covering 300 square metres in total, aided with the use of a spiked roller for a perfectly smooth finish.
