LEVELINE FLAT AND SMOOTH | HIGH-PERFORMANCE, LOW-ALKALI, SELF-LEVELING UNDERLAYMENT

LEVELINE FLAT AND SMOOTH self leveling underlayment is suitable for use on all residential, commercial, and institutional applications. Ideal for pumping and barrel-mixing applications. Maintains healing properties for over 25 minutes. Moisture resistant: Non-gypsum based. Contains no protein additives. Will not harbor or support mold or mildew. High early strength, walkable in just 3-4 hours. Available from Turning Point Innovations in Charlotte North Carolina. No dangerous emissions or irritating fumes. Protection from alkali attack: Unlike standard primarily Portland cement-based products, which can reflect a highly caustic alkali substrate that can break down adhesives and certain PVC floor coverings, LEVELINE FLAT AND SMOOTH’s calcium aluminate base creates a low alkali barrier that can provide protection of these adhesives and floor materials against attack and, ultimately, delamination from aggressive substrates. Improved indoor air quality: When adhesives break down due to alkali attack, toxic elements of the adhesive begin releasing gas. LEVELINE FLAT AND SMOOTH’s calcium aluminate base can prevent this breakdown and improve indoor air quality.
