16 best pouring floors

To get a perfectly flat surface in a short time allows pouring floors. With this material it is possible to eliminate small defects, after drying the coating does not show shrinkage, and the surface is obtained durable and wear-resistant. In Russian construction stores a wide range of leveling compounds is available. Expert advice will help make the right choice.

How to choose a screed floor

  1. Basics. All poured floors can be grouped according to the material of the binder. Cement-based compositions have a high hardness, but they take a long time to dry. Mixes based on gypsum harden quickly, the surface is wear-resistant, but it is afraid of moisture. A smooth glossy coating can be obtained with epoxy compositions. It is used for the device of 3D floors, the surface is resistant to abrasion and moisture, but the impact load should not be high. Polyurethane floors can boast elasticity, some compositions are allowed to use on wooden substrates. Due to the beautiful appearance, they are used as a finishing coat, but the base must not have serious defects.
  2. Scope of application.When choosing the most suitable liquid flooring, experts advise to consider the location of the working plane. In apartments it looks great epoxy compositions with acrylic dyes or transparent coatings with a picture on the substrate. For simple leveling, users most often choose cement or gypsum compositions. In baths, saunas, bathrooms, toilets and kitchens it is optimal to use polyurethane mixtures. On the street it is easiest to level the base with cement compounds.
  3. coating thickness. When choosing a liquid floor, one should pay attention to such parameter as the recommended thickness of the levelling layer. If the substrate has large differences in height, it is better to use a highly filled material with a layer thickness of more than 5 mm. Self-leveling mixes are considered products that form a coating thickness of 4-5 mm. For finishing is optimal thin-layer compositions (up to 1 mm).
  4. Drying speed. Many consumers do not carefully study the recommendations of manufacturers concerning the drying time. The specified interval indicates how many hours or days after the coating can be walked on. This does not mean the possibility of further finishing work. The self-leveling floor hardens very quickly (2-4 hours). Polyurethane compositions hold up to 20 hours, and it is recommended to leave epoxy and cement mixtures for 1-2 days. To lay a tile, a laminate or linoleum is allowed after 7-28 days.
  5. Consumption. Many buyers prefer inexpensive self-leveling floors, without taking into account the consumption of the composition. The producers specify it in kilograms per 1 square meter of surface with a layer thickness of 1 mm. The highest consumption is observed for cement mixtures.

We have selected the 16 best self-leveling floors. All of them are present in the trading network of our country, their use is approved by experts and consumers.
