Setcrete sets the pace in Birmingham

Setcrete sets the pace in Birmingham

Thanks to the unique capabilities of Setcrete’s 2K Pro levelling compound, contractors were able to complete the entire job in a single day.

Contractors at the home in Solihull removed the existing vinyl floor coverings in the kitchen, which left a significant amount of bitumen adhesive residue. Normally, before a levelling compound could be installed, this adhesive residue would have to be removed by mechanical means, such as shot blasting, which can be time consuming and difficult.

However, Setcrete’s 2K Pro has been specifically designed for use over adhesive residues. By using the purposefully designed product, contractors were able to avoid having to remove the residue before levelling the subfloor, saving a great deal of time and effort, and allowing them to complete the entire job in just one day.

Setcrete’s rapid setting 2K Pro can achieve a walk-on time of just 60 minutes and new floorcoverings can be installed in as little as 4 hours. The fast drying, two component compound can be applied to a range of properly prepared subfloors, including concrete, sand/cement screeds, terrazzo, granolithic paving, ceramic tiles, and it can be applied directly onto Setcrete Rapid Set DPM.

Setcrete 2K Pro floor levelling compound, available from merchant distributors nationwide, is sold as a 20kg bag and 5 litre bottle package.
