PBU — a Portland cement-based, non-structural floor underlayment — is mixed on site using PBU, Portland cement, sand, and water. Pumped into place, it forms a high strength yet lightweight cement topping, perfect for use in commercial, multi-family, residential, institutional, and light industrial projects. PBU combines the excellent durability of concrete with lightweight, crack-resistant, sound-insulating, and fire-resistant qualities. Cost-effectiveness, proven performance, toughness, and speed of installation make PBU ideal over cast-in-place concrete, pre-cast concrete, and plywood sub-floors. In fact, up to 25,000 sq. ft. can be installed in one day!
Do not apply PBU when the temperature is below 40° Fahrenheit (or 4° Celsius). The structural floor must support design loads with maximum L/360 deflection. If application thickness exceeds 4" over wood, consult Northwest for technical advice.
