Ultraplan is used in interiors for levelling and smoothing differences in thicknesses from 1 to 10 mm on new or existing substrates, preparing them to receive all kinds of flooring where a high resistance to loads and traffic is required. Ultraplan is especially suitable for areas subject to wheeled chairs. Ultraplan is for interior use only. Some application examples
Ultraplan is a pinkish-grey powder consisting of special cements with rapid setting and hydration, with selected graded silica sand, resins and special additives prepared according to a formula developed in the MAPEI Research laboratories. Mixed with water, Ultraplan becomes a fluid and easily workable mortar, perfectly self-levelling, with high bonding strength to the substrate and ultra-fast drying. Ultraplan can be applied with an automatic pressure pump for distances over 100 m. Ultraplan can be spread in thicknesses up to 10 mm per coat without shrinkage, cracking or crazing, and develops very high compressive and flexural strength as well as resistance to indentation and abrasion. For thicknesses greater than 10 mm (max. 20 mm), it is recommended to add about 30% of graded sand 0/4 mm or gravel 0/8 mm. Installation of flooring can begin approx. 12 hours after the application of Ultraplan, regardless of thickness.
Preparing the substrate The substrates must be solid, dry, free of dust, loose parts, paint, wax, oils, rust and traces of gypsum. Cement based surfaces that are not sufficiently solid must be removed or where possible consolidated with Prosfas, Primer EP or Primer MF. Cracks must be repaired with Eporip. Dusty or very porous concrete surfaces must be treated with a coat of Primer G (1 part Primer G with 3 parts of water) or Livigunn (1 part Livigunn with 5 parts water). Anhydrite screeds can only be levelled with Ultraplan after a coat of Primer G, Primer S or Primer EP has been applied. On ceramic or natural stones apply a coat of Mapeprim SP after the surfaces have been cleaned with detergents and mechanically abraded. Level with Ultraplan before Mapeprim SP has dried completely (indents must still be possible to make).
Pour a 20 kg bag of Ultraplan into a bucket containing 4.4-4.6 litres of clean water and mix with a low speed electric mixer to obtain an homogeneous, self-levelling lump free mix. More quantities of Ultraplan can be prepared in mortar mixers. After 2-3 minutes of slackening, the mix should be restirred and is then ready for use. When Ultraplan is to be used in thicknesses greater than 10 mm (max. 20 mm), it is recommended to add about 40% graded sand 0/4 mm or 0/8 mm depending on the thicknesses (refer to Mapei Technical Assistance). The quantity of Ultraplan mixed must be used within 20-30 minutes (at a temperature of +23°C).
Apply Ultraplan in a single coat from 1 to 10 mm thick with a large metal trowel or a squeegee, keeping the trowel slightly inclined to obtain the desired thickness. Ultraplan can also be applied with an automatic pressure pump. Due to its remarkable self-levelling characteristic, Ultraplan immediately eliminates small imperfections (trowel marks, etc.). If a second coat of Ultraplan is required, it is recommended to apply it as soon as the first one is set to light foot traffic (approx. 3 hours at +23°C). The levelling coat of Ultraplan will be ready to receive resilients, carpet, ceramic and wood floor coverings fixed with adhesives after 12 hours at +23°C (time can vary depending on the thickness of the levelling, the room temperature and humidity). For installing parquet on concrete substrates, the levelling coat of Ultraplan must absolutely be at least 3 mm thick. Carefully check the humidity content with a carbide hygrometer or an electric moisture meter, keeping in mind that the latter only gives indicative values. Cleaning When fresh, Ultraplan can be removed from tools and hands with water.

Ultraplan is available in 20 kg bags.
Ultraplan is stable for at least 12 months stored in a dry place. A longer storage could, determine a slower setting time of Ultraplan. However, the performances of the levelling layer at long ages are not significantly modified.
