pva on concrete

  1. Hello every one
    long storey I have converted a garage built a wood floor . The question I have is 1/4 of the garage I had to lay leveling compound. I have noticed that dust getting onto the wood floor which has a carpet installed. Any way how should i seal the cement based compound to stop dust going every where. should i use a pva solution or some kind of concrete based sealer?

    thanks for your help

    Everbuild 403 Concrete Hardener & Dustproofer or similar would most likely work, but most leveling compounds are not a final surface finish, but are covered with tiles, carpet,etc.

    You will need a floorcovering over it really.

    Even the high performance ones that are supposedly usuable as "wear layers" arent that resilient.

    Maybe a garage floor paint. If no DPM a coat of waterproof pva first allowing it plenty of time to dry. I've used a few Everbuild products and so far like them. They always give usage details on their web site as well.

    Levelling compound will gouge scrape and chip.

    Painting it will not suffice.

    Its not the same as a concrete floor.

    Ok but thought the idea was keep the dust down and that there will be a covering on top, wood mentioned so sealing it should prevent the dust coming up. Floor paint leave a thicker coating than most similar things but isn't keen on too much moister. Everbuild are now mentioning water proof PVA for that sort of problem.
