UltraFloor Level IT Hydra Bond: Semi-Rapid Smoothing UnderLayment
UltraFloor Level IT Hydra Bond is a semi-rapid, fibre reinforced, high performance, free flowing, single part smoothing underlayment – that can be used over bitumen and old adhesive residues! Incorporating Envirobead technology which is made from 20% recycled material, for improved application and reduced environmental impact. UltraFloor Level IT Hydra Bond’s unique formulation consists of a combination of specialist powdered cements, polymers, graded fillers and additives.
UltraFloor Level IT Hydra Bond is suitable to be used over a wide range of subfloors at depths between 2-12mm and up to 30mm; over good solid substrates such as concrete, porcelain, bitumen and plywood (see list of substrates below).
UltraFloor Level IT Hydra Bond is specifically designed for use over a wide variety of subfloors including:
- Sand & cement
- Calcium sulphate/anhydrite/hemihydrate screeds
- Existing cementitious underlayments
- Damp proof membranes
- Surface electrical radiant heating systems
- Flooring grade plywood
- Rigid steel
- Flooring grade asphalt & hard sound bitumen residues
- Cement or thermal backer boards
- Porcelain, ceramic, quarry or terrazzo floors
- Moisture tolerant adhesive residues.
Decorative floor coverings can be applied to the internal subfloors in as little as just four hours, after the application of UltraFloor Level IT Hydra Bond. Its protein free formulation means it is perfect for use in biologically sensitive areas. This moisture tolerant formulation makes it suitable for the pre-smoothing of floors prior to the application of surface damp proof membranes (DPM) and moisture vapour suppressants (MVS).
Due to its excellent adhesion characteristics, it can be used on most common substrates without the need to prime.

How do you mix UltraFloor Level IT Hydra Bond?
Pour 4 litres of cold clean water into an oversized bucket (20 litres or more capacity). Gradually add the powder whilst continually mixing using an electric drill fitted with a power whisk, suitable for use with cement materials. After completely adding the powder, continue mixing for a further 2 minutes, keeping the whisk below the surface of the product to minimise air entrainment, until a lump free creamy material is attained. Do not add further water.
How do you apply UltraFloor Level IT Hydra Bond?
Ultrafloor Level IT Hydra Bond can be pump or trowel applied. Pour onto the floor and spread with a smooth edge steel trowel. UltraFloor Level IT Hydra Bond has exceptional flow characteristics, a spiked roller may be used to further improve the finish particularly between adjacent units of product. Only spike roll whilst the product is still in its fluid state, typically up to 20 minutes after application.
How long does UltraFloor Level IT Hydra Bond take to cure and dry?
All curing and drying times are based on good site conditions i.e. an air temperature of 20°C, air humidity of 65% RH and good ventilation. Sites that are cold, humid or damp or in areas where the airflow is poor, will prolong drying and curing times, so allowances should be made accordingly. Applications to non-absorbent substrates and at thicker application depths will take longer to dry.
Please note: Avoid strong drafts and direct sunlight during curing. Level IT Hydra Bond is ready to receive light foot trafficking normally after 2-2.5 hours, based on 3mm thick application. Floor coverings can be bonded in as little as 4 hours.
