    Leveling compound 'skin'

    I used some Mapei Ultimate leveler 1210 yesterday. Today I've noticed that in an area of it a skin 1mm thick has raised and separated and can easily be scraped off.

    Self leveling compound

    Hello, I've recently started renovating our kitchen/dinner. We've had a new concrete slab poured and it appears that the builders have put a tamped finish on it. They used a rack to spread it out and get it level 'by eye'... Due to this, I cant determine how level the floor is and how much...
