Rapid Set® TRU® Self-leveling

Rapid Set® TRU® Self-leveling

self-leveling overlay is a blend of special cements, fine aggregate, polymer and superplasticizer designed to go down in a thin, durable, smooth layer hard enough to be used as a wear surface that doesn’t require covering by another flooring material.

Polished Concrete:  One of the prerequisites for a great outcome to a polished concrete flooring project is that it begin with a concrete slab that is as flat as possible.  Otherwise, as the concrete slab is ground during the repeated steps of the concrete polishing process, alternating areas of fine and coarse aggregate, immediately adjacent to one another, become exposed due to the undulating peaks and valleys across a concrete floor.  Ordinary concrete, unless it is placed “super-flat”, with the assistance of a “laser screed”, is not flat enough.  However, self-leveling cement overlays, at a depth of only ⅜” or ½”, easily make existing concrete sufficiently flat for polishing.  If aggregate exposure is desired in the final polished concrete finish, small to medium size aggregates can be added to the overlay material during mixing.

Two main reasons self-leveling overlays have become such an ideal option for decorative concrete are:  they produce a glass smooth finish with no trowel marks; and unlike concrete, they can be manufactured, cost-effectively, with “white cement” so as to produce more vibrant colors when using acid stains, dyes or integral pigments.
