  • Calculate the amount of leveling compound needed. This may differ, instructions for this are in most cases printed on the box.
  • Clean the underground and swipe it with ammonia to degrease the floor.
  • Check whether the underground is level. You can do this by using the long lath, or preferably with a level.
  • Fill possible holes with filler.
  • Apply Permacon (or a primer) to the underground. Let it soak for about 12 hours.

  • With a puller or a long lath you shift the cement towards the corners, it smoothens by itself.
  • The next square meters must be applied in the same way. Make sure that there is not too much time between the application of the cement in the adjacent areas.
