Ultra Level It One Self Levelling Compound is rated
Rated 5 out of
Does the job
Been a tiler for 34 years and used many different product as they come and go on and off the market.
This one, Ultra, is pretty good. Given it 5 stars with a good rating. Not the best but, does the job very well and has never let me down on any application.
This compound requires that you have some trowel skills so that you get the desired flat finish. Just spreading it over the floor and expecting it to 'self level' will not work.
Some have complained about smell, never had it in 100's of bags so maybe check your procedure. Others have said it is not smooth but, this can be for many reasons. Sub floor not prepared professionally, pin holes, gaps, joints.
It is worth spending ten minutes filling any holes so that when laid you can get that smooth flat finish and you don't get troughs where it sinks.
Would recommend and will continue to use.
Pete and staff and Sudbury always helpful.

Read the instructions- Every other type of levelling product requires some form of prep, possibly with a bonding agent such as SBR or PVA. This one does not- I'm glad we caught that before we began laying it. It requires no bonding agents.
It claims to have deep filling abilities- it does not. It simply slumps and leaves you with holes and shallow spots to revisit with a second or third mix, thus not leaving you with the smooth finish that any other levelling product gives you.
Allow nothing to sit on this floor for well over a week, or it will simply lift and crack and cause trip hazards. My customer places a small rug(a week after laying/pouring) And a huge area of this cr@p delaminated, lifted and cracked. The lifting caused a real trio hazard that had to be chiselled away and will require a repair with a decent product.
In another area, it would not adhere to concrete had been poured 5 weeks prior.
Whatever this cr@p is made of, it does not like to be used against anything that is not perfect conditions. Painful and useless. I now have to buy something else to make repairs and make safe.
All costing me time and money!
Avoid this rubbish!
