Need to use self leveling underlayment onto kilz.


I had to kilz my concrete slab to keep the prior owners cat urine out. Iím going to lay vinyl plank down but I need to level out a small area. What can I used on top of the kilz to make sure the self leveling underlayment adheres and doesnít cause problems.

No self leveler is going to adhere to the Kilz.

Can you not use bonding primer?

Re: Need to use self leveling underlayment onto kilz.


Honestly, just based on my recent experience with the stuff, your best bet is to call the manufacturer of whatever self-leveler you plan on using and see what they say. The tech support for these companies tends to actually be quite helpful.
I'm pretty sure the point of Kilz is that nothing sticks to it, but who knows maybe there's some primer that will work. Chances are whatever product you're using calls for the floor to be mechanically profiled first before the primer though, which would probably solve your Kilz problem at the same time. Have you considered renting a concrete grinder?

Would be like trying to bond it to oil , read the instructions on the overlay before you try anything.

Just because Kilz is oil based doesn't mean other things will not adhere to it. It is a universal undercoat for many applications that are overlaid with latex paint. I don't see an issue with a self leveling primer and then floating the area. Although I have personally never done this myself. But kilz will not be the deciding factor as it is designed for other things to cover it that are not oil based.
