For levelling stony subfloors (interior use) in layers up to 20 mm. At layers up to 2 mm, a surrounding temperature 18° - 20° C and a relative humidity of < 70%, the applied levelling compound layer is ready for the installation of linoleum, needlefelt, carpet, PVC- and rubber floor covering after 1.5 - 3 hours. For the installation of linoleum, needlefelt and carpet the residual moisture percentage in the subfloor may not be measured above 3.5 CM-%. For installation of PVC- and rubber floor covering is this respectively 2.5 and 2.0 CM-%. Install parquet and cork after at least 12 hours. In this case the residual moisture percentage may not be measured above 2.5 CM-%. 

If applying by pump:

Consult pump supplier, ensure the pump is suitable for all types of levelling compounds. Pumping with a too high mixing rate can cause an insufficient flow of the levelling compound.

Working Process

Layer thickness : Maximum 20 mm.
Storage : Store cool and dry.
Tools : Trowel or notched squeegee in combination with a spiked roller.
Mixing ratio : Add 23 kg of 991 Europlan Direct Rapid to 5 - 5.5 litres of water.
Processing time : Use within 15 minutes after mixing.*
Latency : Approx 3 minutes.
Drying : At 18 - 20 °C and a relative humidity < 70% the applied levelling compound layer is ready for the installation of linoleum, needlefelt, carpet, PVC and rubber after 1.5 - 3 hours.*
Shelf Life : 6 months, in unopened packaging.
Cleaner : Water.
Frost-proof : Yes.
Remarks : 

Technical information and safety data sheets of other laying materials and floorings/parquet must be observed!
Apply flooring/parquet to the filled area within the next few days!
Not suitable on floating dry screed elements or floating wood-based panels.
The readiness for laying is dependent on the thickness of the layer and depends in particular on the climatic conditions on site.

Wear protective glasses and gloves.
If the adhesive or installation material comes into contact with your eyes, wash out immediately with plenty of water and consult an ophthalmologist.
Protect your hands with waterproof, robust gloves.
Wear long trousers.
Avoid prolonged skin contact with the adhesive or installation material. Thoroughly clean affected skin parts with water immediately.
The longer fresh adhesive or installation material remains on your skin, the greater the risk of serious skin damage.
Keep children away from fresh adhesive or installation material.

EMICODE, for more information visit

For layer thicknesses over 10 mm, on moisture-sensitive (e.g. calcium sulphate screeds) or unstable substrates, sanded Eurocol reaction resin primers must be used.

* The mentioned values have been established in our laboratory and must be considered as guidelines in view of possible variations in climatic circumstances, subfloor compositions and layer thickness.

Approx. 1.5 kg/m² per mm layer thickness.

  • 991 Europlan Direct Rapid can be applied on any type of stony subfloor that is rigid and has a good tensile and compression strength. The subfloor should also be clean, permanently dry and free from grease and dirt, according to the requirements of BS 8203 or DIN 18 365/DIN 18356.
  • In most cases it is not necessary to use a primer.
  • Degrease smooth and impervious subfloors (tile floors, granito, terrazzo etc.) with 014 Euroclean/891 Euroclean Basic and and dry well. 
  • Absorbent subfloors (sand/cement screeds) can be levelled with 990 Europlan Direct without a primer. 
  • Prime very strong porous subfloors with 044 Europrimer Multi/044-1 Europrimer Multi Plus, 099 Dispersion Primer or 049 Europrimer ABS with a foam roller.
  • Prime moisture sensitive subfloors (e.g. anhydrite, magnesite, water-soluble adhesive residues etc.) with 021 Euroblock Reno/021 Euroblock LE, 042 Eurobloick Turbo or 026 Euroblock Multi.
  • In case of asphalt floors and bituminous substrates contact our technical department.
  • Fill cracks and deep damages with 905 Europlan Fill or 945 Europlan Solid/940 Europlan Quick.
  • After hardening prime 905 Europlan Fill or 945 Europlan Solid with 044 Europrimer Multi/044-1 Europrimer Multi Plus or 049 Europrimer ABS.
  • Wooden floorboards must be of a good waterproof quality. During mixing of the 23 kg levelling mortar, add 250 g 811 Reno fibers. Minimum layer thickness must be 3 mm. Don`t devide the levelling mortar with a notched squeegee. Seams must be sealed up with 900 Europlan Reno or a suitable acrylic sealant. 
  • Appropriately dimensioned Eurocol edge strips are to be used for rising building components.
  • Fix cracks/seams in the subfloor with 021 Euroblock Reno in combination with 063 Eurotape and 846 Quartzsand or 808 Eurojoint Connector in combination with 021 Euroblock Reno. Alternatively with Europlan 913 Silicate sealing compound.
  • Level anhydrite floors with 925 Europlan Alphy Direct or 920 Europlan Alphy.
  • In advance always seek our technical data sheets. In doubt about the application ask for technical advice. 

User manual:
  • Add 23 kg of 991 Europlan Direct Rapid to 5 - 5.5 litres of cool and clean tap water. 
  • Stir thoroughly, using an electric stirrer (Eurocol no. 855), to a smooth and homogeneous mixture. 
  • Wait for approx. 3 minutes and stir the mortar once again, with a low rpm. 
  • Apply the mortar within 15 minutes on the floor with a trowel or notched squeegee. 
  • When pumping adjust the mixing-unit in such way that per 23 kg of 991 Europlan direct Rapid 5 – 5.5 litres of cool and clean tap water will be added 
  • Protect fresh levelling compound layers against draft and direct sunlight. 
  • Under normal circumstances the layer is passable after approx. 1 - 1.5 hours. At a layer thickness of 2 mm and a temperature of 18 - 20 °C, the levelling compound layer is ready for the installation of a floor covering after 1.5 - 3 hours, provided that the moisture content does not cross 3.5 CM-%. 
  • Higher temperatures will accelerate and lower temperatures will slow down the application and drying time of 991 Europlan Direct Rapid.
