Recognized as the leader in floor technologies, Maxxon offers a full spectrum of underlayments, the ultimate sound deadening systems, and high performing moisture vapor barriers. Ideal for renovation, commercial, multifamily, or self-leveling applications, Maxxon can solve virtually any floor challenge.
Level-Right underlayments are ideal for thin-topping applications over concrete. They provide a smooth, level new surface that dries fast and allows for placement of floor goods soon after application.
Product advantages with Maxxon Underlayments include the following: Use for new construction or renovation; Flatten or level entire floors or transition areas, featheredge to deep fill; Resurface old or damaged floors; Provide a temporary wear surface in as little as two to four hours after application; Experienced, authorized applicators are available worldwide; Exceeds standards set by leading floor goods manufacturers; Use in any continuous pumping machine.
The subfloor must be structurally sound and able to withstand live and dead loads with maximum deflection of L/360. In concrete construction, moisture vapor transmission must be tested for and eliminated prior to installation of products specified herein. Products specified herein are for interior use only.
Maxxon Underlayments are not a vapor barrier. The general contractor, architect, specifier, or building owner shall test below grade, on grade, or elevated slabs for MVER (ASTM F1869-09) or RH (ASTM F2170). If the MVER or RH of the concrete substrate exceeds the floor covering manufacturer's respective requirements for the finished flooring system, the concrete should be treated with a damp proof membrane (such as Maxxon DPM) before installing a Maxxon Underlayment.
