Topic : Flat Pans / Super Flat Pans
What is the difference between a Flat and a Super Flat Finishing Pan?
The Finishing Pans has the advantage of behing wide to cover a large amount of concrete surface. Besides being wide, a good pan also needs to be flat enough to ensure a straight floor finish.
There are two types of pans available: The Flat Pan and the Super Flat Pan. Basically, the first one is flat and the second one is flatter.
The Flat Pan is often used on projects which the concrete surface does not need to be super flat insofar as the concrete is covered with carpet or ceramic for example. The pan flatness is calculated by the gap between the middle and the side of it. The Flat Pan has a 1/4’’ to 3/8’’ rise from center.
Then, the Super Flat Pan is the flattest you can have. They are mainly used to reach a high FF number and a super flat floor. It has a 0’’ – 1/8’’ rise from center.
Depending of your needs in term of concrete finishing, the type of pan flatness has a big influence on the concrete outcome.
