Mapecem from Mapei
MAPEI’s fast-track products are suitable for speedy installations, the company says. Mapecem is Mapei’s fast-setting and drying screed for all flooring scenarios including in residential areas.
The fast-track product is suitable for preparing screeds which set to light foot traffic after two to three hours and is ‘perfectly dry’ after 24 hours making it suitable for a project requiring a fast turnaround.
Mapei’s Topcem is another fast-track screed solution.
The rapid-drying special hydraulic binder is a cement replacement, mixed with graded aggregates and water.
Mapei Topcem can be foot trafficked within 12 hours and is suitable for the installation of ceramic tiles after only 24 hours, stone after two days and resilient floorcoverings and wood after just four days’ irrespective of the screed’s thickness.
Screed containing Mapei Topcem, available in 20kg bags, can be installed as a bonded, un-bonded or floating screed and is suitable for use with under-floor heating. It can also be installed thinner than conventional screeds.
