Application

  • UltraFloor Feather IT has been developed to enable subfloors to be further ‘improved’ prior to laying decorative floor coverings including resilient floor coverings (sheet and tile), textiles, timber as well as stone products such as ceramic, porcelain and mosaic tiles.
  • The very fine particle formulation enables it to be applied from 3 mm down to a true ‘feather edge’.
  • It is ideal for taking out defects and ridges in smoothing compound applications caused by trowel marks, for filling in gouges or depressions, for repairing damages caused by premature trafficking such as footprints and for general filling and patching of isolated areas, as well as where fine feather finishing is required such as at door thresholds.
  • UltraFloor Feather IT can be used between boards and to smooth over screwheads on mechanically fixed flooring grade plywood installations.
  • It is ideal for use over existing cementitious subfloors including sand/ cement screeds, rough concrete and existing smoothing underlayments.
  • It is not recommended for use directly to calcium sulphate screeds. UltraFloor Feather IT is suitable for use in domestic and commercial projects and must always be covered with a decorative floor covering.
  • Its protein free formulation means it is ideal for use in biologically sensitive areas.
  • It can be used on a variety of subfloors, and is suitable for use where warm water underfloor heating is incorporated. 

Description

UltraFloor Feather IT is a rapid drying, very fine particle, high polymer cementitious compound. It offers excellent adhesion characteristics and is suitable for application to a wide variety of substrates. It is conveniently supplied in an outer plastic container to minimise potential damage in transit and also to maintain the reactivity rates of the cements once the bag has been opened.


Features and benefits:

  • Rapid setting.
  • Adhesion without a primer.
  • Compatible with underfloor heating.
  • 3 mm feather edge.
  • 10–15 minutes working time.
  • 30 minutes foot traffic.
  • Internal floors.
