Rapid Set TRU Self-Leveling is the only overlay system specifically designed for polishing (it is not a modified Portland cement-based product). For projects that need long flow life and working time while achieving high early strength, TRU Self-Leveling is ideal.
TRU Self-Leveling rapidly levels, maintains workability for 30 minutes and produces a smooth, strong surface with high bond strength. It can withstand 3,000 PSI in 4 hours; 6,500 PSI in 28 days
This advanced hydraulic cement-based, self-leveling topping, resurfacer, and underlayment can be used both indoors and outdoors. Due to its very high compressive strength and bond strength, it is acceptable to be used in industrial applications where forklift traffic or other rubber-wheeled heavy traffic is present.
Crack-resistant and durable, this one-component system that won’t deteriorate in damp conditions.
TRU Self-Leveling is ready for foot traffic in 2-3 hours. Coatings may be applied in about 12 hours.
TRU Self-Leveling cures to a light off-white color ideal for stained, dyed, or integrally colored floors, and decorative embedded aggregate flooring.
Substrate must be clean, sound, and free of oil, curing compound, dust, mastic, and other bond-breakers. Surface should be ICRI CSP 3 - 5. Mechanical methods of surface preparation, such as shot blasting, are preferred. Acid etching the substrate is not recommended. Surface must be dry, have a minimum temperature of 50°F and be properly primed.
Apply Rapid Set® Acrylic Primer to the prepared concrete substrate following the product specifications. When placing TRU™ as a decorative topping, epoxy with sand broadcast to refusal is the preferred method of priming.
Add one bag of TRU™ to 4.5 quarts (4.3 liters) of potable water.Mix 3-5 minutes until the mixture is smooth and lump free. Avoid mixers that entrap large amounts of air. Mixed TRU™ should be used within 30 minutes at 70°F. Maintain material temperature above 50°F.
Arrange work area to permit continuous placement without cold joints. Pour or pump the TRU™ onto the prepared and primed substrate with a minimum thickness of 1/8″ over the highest point. TRU™ will flow and level out within its 15-minute flow life. Use a gauge rake, spreader, or other tools to coax the material into place as required. Use a porcupine-type roller to remove any entrapped air.
For thicknesses greater than 1.5", extend each 50-lb bag of TRU™ with 25 lbs of clean, dry 3/8" pea gravel. Place the extended material to 1/2" below desired floor level and then place neat TRU™ for the final 1/2" within 24 hours.
No wet curing is required under normal conditions at 70°F. If used in exterior applications apply a fine water mist to the newly hardened surface of TRU™ as soon as it can be done without marring the surface and continue until one hour after final set. Avoid excessively dry, windy, hot, or sunny conditions.
Adhesives, thin set, or paint can be applied after 6 hours. If used as a topping that will receive traffic, a high-quality sealer or epoxy can be applied per the manufacturer's recommendations after 12 hours.
