Dependable’s Skimflow® ES Self-Leveler


Do you need to get your floor quickly leveled and prepared for its floor covering? Self-leveling underlayments are the way to achieve this. Self-levelers are found to be a convenient, time saving and cost effective solution for getting a clean, leveled floor. Self-levelers may be used over a variety of substrates including plywood and concrete to name a few.

When a job calls for a cementitious self-leveler Dependable has a solution with our Skimflow® ES. Dependable’s Skimflow® ES is a modern formula Portland and Aluminate cement that is fortified with latex polymer. Skimflow® ES can be applied at a minimum thickness of 1/8” and a max thickness of 1-1/2” per layer. It can be pumped or poured and provides a compressive strength of  4100 psi.  Skimflow® ES may be applied over plywood once it is primed and a lath is installed and it may be used over structurally sound concrete when primed with Primer SL. Through testing Dependable’s Skimflow® ES is found to work well as a light duty wear surface.  Skimflow® ES can withstand normal foot traffic for one to two years with out significant wear. It however cannot withstand heavy use. Skimflow® ES is gray in color and comes in 55 lb. double wall bag.

Never underestimate the need of a properly prepared floor.

“Since 1992 I have used self-leveling underlayments from many manufacturers. I feel Dependable’s Skimflow® ES provides a great healing and flow characteristics while still providing a hard surface after curing with no dusting. The competitive price point will assist me in being awarded more projects in the future.”
