Novoplan Easy Plus


Easy-Preparation, Self-Leveling Underlayment

Novoplan Easy Plus is a high-strength, self-leveling, calcium-aluminate-based underlayment and repair mix for interior concrete and engineer-approved floors. Its unique formulation allows for direct application on substrates that are clean, securely bonded and properly primed.

Green certifications
• Living Building Challenge (LBC) Red List Free: This product has been
verified per the most current Red List on the LBC’s Website.
• For leveling, smoothing and repairing of interior residential or commercial
floors before the installation of floor coverings
• For use over radiant-heated floors or to encapsulate hydronic or electric
radiant-heated floors


• Do not mix with other self-leveling underlayments.
• Do not install over unprimed surfaces.
• Do not install over flooring products, adhesive residues or substrates
containing asbestos.
• Do not use for exterior applications. For interior use only.
• Do not apply Novoplan Easy Plus unless the substrate temperature is
maintained at between 50°F and 90°F (10°C and 32°C) for 48 hours
before, during and after application. Do not allow freshly installed
Novoplan Easy Plus to freeze.
• Do not use as a final wear surface. Cured Novoplan Easy Plus must be
covered with a finished floor system or floor covering.
• Do not install over standing water.
• Do not install over dimensionally unstable materials.
• Do not install if the maximum allowable deflection of the supporting surface
exceeds L/360 (or L/720 for installations involving natural stone or their
agglomerates) when exposed to live or dead loads.
• Do not use in areas subjected to prolonged exposure to moisture. Contact
MAPEI’s Technical Services Department for waterproofing recommendations.
• Do not use as a moisture mitigation product. Cement-based self-leveling
underlayments do not reduce moisture vapor transmissions emanating
from high-humidity concrete slabs. If the flooring or installation system
requires protection from elevated humidity levels, moisture mitigation must
be done before Novoplan Easy Plus is installed. Contact MAPEI’s Technical
Services Department for recommendations regarding moisture mitigation


• Concrete that is installed in compliance with ASTM F710,
that is at least 28 days old, and that is free from hydrostatic
pressure, osmotic blistering and alkali silica reaction
• Well-bonded and dimensionally stable ceramic tile,
porcelain tile, quarry tile, natural stone, vinyl composition
tile (VCT), cement, epoxy-based moisture barriers and
epoxy terrazzo
• Properly installed cement backer units
• Durable and fully cured cement-based mortar beds
• Engineer-approved plywood and oriented strand board
(OSB) subfloors with a maximum of 19.2″ (48.77 cm)
on center joist placement and that meets requirements
of L/360
• Nailed-down wood flooring (including plank wood
subfloors, strip wood subfloors and nailed-down solid
wood flooring) that has been covered over with at least
one layer of 5/8″ (16 mm) plywood, glued and screwed
• Gypsum-based underlayments
• Mapeheat ™ Membrane, Mapeguard ® UM and similar
crack-isolation and uncoupling membranes (these do
not require priming)


• All substrates must be properly prepared, structurally
sound, stable, solid, dry, and primed with an appropriate
MAPEI primer unless otherwise noted.
• On concrete substrates, fill in deep areas, holes and
cracks with an appropriate MAPEI patching compound
or screed. Fluid self-leveler may leak through to a floor
below or other unwanted cavities.
• On plywood substrates, fill joints with an acrylic-based
caulking compound to prevent the underlayment from
leaking into a floor below.
Refer to MAPEI’s reference guide “Surface-Preparation
Requirements for Self-Leveling Underlayments” for details
on proper surface preparation.


Before product use, take appropriate safety precautions. Refer to the Safety Data Sheet for details.

  1. Based on the number of bags to be mixed, measure and pour the required amount of water (see “Mixing ratio” in the chart below) into a clean mixing vessel such as MAPEI Self-Leveling Mixing Barrel or a plastic pail that can hold at least 5 U.S. gals. (18.9 L). For best results, the water temperature should be at about room temperature (70°F or 21°C). The mixing ratio must remain consistent; do not overwater the mixture.
  2. Slowly add the powder into the pre-measured water, taking care to not generate excessive dust. Use a high-speed drill and an oval paddle mixer to mix Novoplan Easy Plus to a homogenous, lump-free consistency.
  3. Continue to mix for 2 to 3 minutes. Do not overmix: Overmixing or moving the mixer up and down during the mixing process could trap air or cause pinholing during the application and curing process.


Read all installation instructions thoroughly before installation.

  1. Substrates and ambient room temperatures should be maintained at between 50°F and 85°F (10°C and 29°C) during application as well as for 3 days before and after application.
  2. Before product installation, close doors and windows, and turn off HVAC systems to prevent drafts during application and until the underlayment is cured. Protect installation areas from direct sunlight.
  3. Quickly pour or pump mixed self-leveling compound onto the surface in a ribbon pattern. Set the width of the pour at a distance that is ideal for maintaining a wet edge throughout placement. For best results, work as a team to provide a continuous flow of wet material, to avoid trapping air or creating a cold joint. Apply enough material to adequately cover all high spots.
  4. Shortly after placing Novoplan Easy Plus, use a gauge rake to spread the material and assist in gauging it to the desired depth. After achieving the desired depth, use a smoother to obtain an even surface.


• Novoplan Easy Plus is self-curing. Do not use a dampcuring method, or curing and sealing compounds.
• Cool-weather conditions may extend curing or setting
times. Warmer weather conditions may accelerate
working, curing and setting times.


• Wash hands and tools with water promptly before the material hardens. Cured material must be mechanically removed.


• Protect Novoplan Easy Plus from direct sunlight, excessive heat and drafty conditions during curing. Turn off all forced ventilation and radiant heating systems, and protect the installation for up to 24 hours after completion.
• Avoid walking on the installed surface for at least 2 to
3 hours after installation, depending upon temperature and humidity conditions.
• Protect the installation from traffic, dirt and dust from other trades until Novoplan Easy Plus is completely cured and final flooring has been installed.
• Do not expose Novoplan Easy Plus to rolling dynamic loads, such as fork lifts or scissor lifts, for at least 3 days after installation.
