About this Product
weberfloor rapid is a rapid-setting, high-performance, fibre-modified, cement-based, self-smoothing, self-levelling floor screed.
It is used for correcting surface irregularities on difficult surfaces,including wood, in interior situations.
Features and Benefits
- Excellent levelling properties
- Can be built up to 15 mm
- Rapid setting (light foot traffic after 45 - 60 minutes)
- Improved bond to difficult substrates
- Flexibility to absorb limited movement, e.g. under-floor heating and wood
- Fibre-modified for increased resilience
Not suitable for:
- exterior use
- floors with rising damp
- industrial areas
- as a wearing surface
Weber's Customer Services Department has a team of experienced advisors available to provide on-site advice both at the specification stage and during application. Detailed specifications can be provided for specific projects or more general works. Site visits and on-site demonstrations can be arranged on request.

Preparation & Application
Switch off any under-floor heating systems at least 24 hours before application.
Substrates should be completely dry, hard,rigid and clean. Remove any traces of paint,plaster or laitance or other unsound materials. Thoroughly remove all traces of dust by vacuuming. Fill any large deep holes and allow to dry. Localised holes, up to a total thickness of 15 mm can be filled with weberfloor rapid.
Timber should be rigid and strong enough to support the expected load with minimum deflection, normally at least 18 mm thick of a flooring grade and ventilated beneath.Screw wood panels to joists at least every200 - 300 mm to prevent movement and ensure that every board edge is adequately supported by its adjacent board or joists and noggins. Ensure that all joints and cavities in the substrate are protected to prevent leakage.
Priming with weber PR360 is recommended to improve adhesion, reduce air bubbles,improve the flow of the screed and prevent de-watering.
weberfloor 4945 fibre mesh should be used to reinforce weberfloor rapid in critical areas. The mesh should be fixed to the substrate to prevent it floating to the surface during the application of the screed.
Do not mix if the temperature is outside of the range +5°C to +30°C.
Thoroughly mix with 5 litres of water per 25 kg bag using a slow speed electric mixer (500 rpm) for at least two minutes until a fluid, homogenous paste is obtained.
Allow to stand for 2 minutes and use within approximately 10 – 15 minutes. At higher temperatures this time will be reduced.
Pour the mix onto the floor and spread evenly with a steel trowel, spatula or spiked roller. Do not apply at thicknesses above 15 mm. The product will self-smooth and most trowel marks will disappear.
The minimum application thickness for stabilising wooden substrates is 10 mm.
At 15 – 20°C weberfloor rapid will have set sufficiently hard in 45 – 60 minutes to withstand light foot traffic. At lower temperatures and at greater thicknesses, these times are extended.
weberfloor rapid is not intended as a wearing surface so the final finishing layer should be applied as soon as possible after drying has completed. If it is to be left for prolonged periods of time the surface should be suitably protected.
Allow for suitable expansion or control joints in screeds or slabs, by following them through the new topping.
