Hi all

Ive take up really old vinyl floor tiles that were here when we moved in (in the kitchen) - god knows how long theyve been there.

The tile came up ok but left a glue type substance on the the original tile underneath from when the house was built im guessing

I need to level the floor with a self leveler but not sure what would stick to this hard type glue - its impossible to get off really

We are then planning to tile directly on the levelled floor

I have had a look around of whats out there and it looks like the mapei latex 2 part stuff may do it but wanted to check if theres anything better out there really - we only have a very small utility type room to do and at most we need a depth of about 8mm at one end

Thanks for any advise - first post!
