Key Facts

Ceresit DX 

Universal leveling Compound

For 0.5 - 10 mm layer thickness in one single application

 

Properties

  • Self-leveling and pumpable
  • Fast drying
  • High ultimate resistance

Description

Ceresit DX is a mortar with self-leveling properties and shrinkage free. Comprised of hydraulic cement, selected silica sand and special additives that, when mixed with water, forms a self-leveling and smooth mass perfect for correcting imperfections on several floors such as concrete, plasters or cement mortars, cermic tile, natural stone, epoxy coatings and old substrates with firmly stuck adhesive residues. 

For indoor use only. Do not use it for traffic surfaces exposed to wear.

Step by Step

Substrate preparation

The substrates must be clean, crack-free, sound, dry, and free of substances that may impair adhesion and must comply with the current relevant local standards. 

 

 

Before applying the leveling compound, pretreat the surface with the recommended primers Ceresit R 777 and R 766.

Mixing

For the preparation of a 25 kg (55.12 lb.) bag, measure and pour 6.5 liters (1.72 gal) of water in a container. By stirring up, slowly add a Ceresit DX bag. Use a mixer or a drill with 650 rpm-speed fitted with appropriate blades or disks. Mix for 2 minutes, stop the mixing, scrape the walls and the bottom of the mixing vessel and mix for 2 more minutes until you get a smooth mixture free of lumps.

Application

Pour the self-leveling mixture by sections and uniform parts immediately in a given area depending on the expected performance and in accordance with the calculated thickness.

Apply the leveling compound with a toothed squeegee or smoothing trowel to achieve a uniform thickness. Pass a roller repeatedly in both directions; this also helps to have a better product distribution. Let it dry for about 4 to 6 hours for foot traffic, and 24 hours to apply the desired finish.

Note. While passing the spikes roller, it is necessary that the task will be done in maximum 20 minutes after the application of Ceresit DX.
