Fonctionne pas bien
Nous avions un plancher pas au niveau, nous avons choisi d’y aller avec ce produit par rapport aux autres. Nous avons suivi toutes les points et recommandations de la fiche technique en passant par l’après level-03 l’attente de 1h a 6h , 4 litre d’eau pour le mélange une température de 23 degrés celcius, .... bref tout à la lettre. puis nous avons collé 13 sacs dans notre sous-sol. Ca a bien séché Mais le sol est toujours aussi croche. le produit ne s’étale pas bien, pourtant encore une fois nous avions une longue spatule pour aller dans les coin et aider le produit à ce répandre. Bref 600 pièces et deux dos cassé pour rien.

A bit thick but good
Further to Charv's review, I dfound that this Sika is thicker at the recommended water blend than the competitors (HD) product. The package warns not to over-thin, so I didn't (maybe I should have). At the recommended thickness, it does require some spreading as it's not completely Self-leveling. I ended up buying another bag of the competitors to even out some hills and valleys. I was working on a bathroom floor where I had to use a long pole/squeegy to level it, hard to get it right and would have preferred it to level more on its own. All of these require brands some spreading, but this one needs a bit more expertise with a concrete float than your typical DIY'er has.

I had already (painfully) installed an LVP vinyl floor in my basement which I had repaired the concrete floor from cracks, but there were many higher and lower spots which made that install a huge PITA. The floor was flexing way too much and I hated the feel of air gaps beneath it so decided to use this to mostly smooth out the floor. There was an apx 32sf section that was up to 2 1/2" from level (drainage slope to another section) so I poured a bag to get it up 1" then the next day added another bag that I smeared out thinly to a larger radius. I was expecting it to be a nightmare to work with (all the admonitions from DIY videos on YT) but it was easy as cake with this stuff. So easy that I decided to buy a few more bags and do a couple sections the other half of the floor that I didnt pull up the vinyl.
I would note that it took a bit more water, more like apx 5L than what they suggested but I'd say only do that if you need a thinner coat. This stuff seems to feather out to about 1/16" that way which is great.
If you're doing a whole room in one pass you'll likely need 2 or 3 guys with someone constantly mixing and having it ready or you could get behind with how quickly this stuff starts to become viscous. It's not too fast but on a bigger job you'd really want to coordinate. Smaller jobs like mine you can do in passes if you like using primer in between coats.
