A well-finished, long-lasting floor looks beautiful and feels smooth and even not only because of the floor coat on top, but also the sub-floor preparation and layers underneath. A successfully designed and installed floor takes into account the existing substrate material and conditions, whether it is rough and unfinished, has some dips and waves or slopes unevenly.
Trust Sika floor experts to help you choose a sub-floor preparation system – from priming agents to leveling compounds and screeds – all perfectly compatible with Sika’s floor systems and other flooring materials on top.
Primers are used for pre-treating floors and are often applied prior to leveling materials or floor adhesives, to create a base and assure good bonding of upper floor layers. It is typically applied by trowel and roller, and the adequate method can be chosen depending on the subfloor quality. Sika provides Sikafloor® Primer products, which are suitable for a wide range of needs.
A perfectly even and smooth floor substrate surface plays an important role in the final result and lifespan of the floor, no matter what kind of floor covering will be installed over it.
