AllPrep Flooring Specialises in Levelling


Do you want to optimise your flooring game? AllPrep Flooring Specialists is the industry leader when it comes to floor preparation, floor levelling, and all aspects of concrete repair, coatings and polished concrete.  

AllPrep Flooring Specialists is the first to go to the Australian market using the LATICRETE® SUPERCAP® “Pump Truck” System. A superior performing, time-saving and cost-efficient method of finishing new concrete or capping existing slabs. This cutting edge system combines the power of the pump with the next generation of self-levelling materials, resulting in the “The Next Generation Slab™”. 

The SUPERCAP System has proven itself internationally in a variety of settings. The main benefits include:
  • Time Savings - The underlayment goes down at least 50% quicker, the cure is fast and following trades can be back working on a perfectly flat floor in 24 hours. That adds up to real time savings.
  • Cost-Effective - The volume and efficiencies that SUPERCAP offers lead to fewer man hours and lower costs. Because of the mobile blending unit, we can complete a floor more economically. And that doesn’t even factor in the lower costs for following trades doing their jobs faster.
  • Jobsite Safety - No more loading the building, staging thousands of small bags and creating dust. A small crew manning a hose is the only thing you’ll see in the building.
  • Pumps 13.5 ton per hour, equivalent to 675 small bags an hour - That’s some serious volume never before achieved. Just think how much labour and equipment you would need to match that. Along with tying up the loading dock and building lift.
  • SUPERCAP Warranty - SUPERCAP will perform for years to come. Our products have a 10 year limited warranty and come with the option of a System Warranty – covering product, labour & materials. Contact LATICRETE SUPERCAP to discuss the System Warranty options.
