The technology of pouring the floor is quite simple, so even a beginner will cope with it without problems. Before you start working with the surface, you need to know exactly how much material you need. In order to calculate the filler floor, it is necessary to familiarize yourself with the components and their criteria. This will allow you to pick the right material in the required volume.
The filler floor perfectly aligns the surface and makes it glossy.
To correctly make a floor, you need to know:
- When pouring the coating part of the resulting solution will be used as a primer. Due to this, a strong coupling between the slabs and the coating itself is formed. The average consumption of the ground layer for a covering of 1 m² is 250 g.
- The consumption depends on the required layer and the constituents of the solution. Approximately 500 g of material are needed per 1 m² when leveling to zero.
Variants of self-leveling floors.
But there are tricks that allow you to save a little. So, for example, you can use a sublayer, which includes:
- polymer solution;
- quartz sand of fine fraction.
Layer-litter is obtained up to 2 mm in thickness. In addition to saving the mixture, it also helps to smooth the screed, smoothing out all minor defects on the floor.
The next method of saving was to reduce costs through the use of polymer substances in the economical group.
For example, you can save on impregnation of polyurethane.
In order to properly make the floor, you need to calculate the volume of the solution needed to level the surface. It is worth the calculations without taking into account the use of quartz litter.
in modern conditions, it became possible to create bulk 3d floors.
On the packaging material you can find the value of the density, which is useful in the calculation. Usually this index varies in the range of 1.3 - 1.5 kg / l. So, in order to fill 1 m² of a 1 mm thick area, you will need 1 liter of the obtained composition. Let's take the average value of the density for calculation of the coating consumption: 1.4 kg / l x 1 l = 1.4 kg.
It turns out that for pouring a surface 1 mm thick and an area of 1 m², you need 1.4 kg of dry composition.
Next, you can calculate the costs of the mixture, multiplying the result by the area of the room.
Some manufacturers of mixtures cheaper them due to a change in composition. Basically, for these purposes, use different fillers, which increase the weight of the product, but at the same time worsen its characteristics and indicators. To calculate the filler floor, using the product of such a manufacturer for pouring, you need to add to the received consumption 15-20% (this is the error that appears due to the dilution of mixtures by foreign aggregates).
