MAPEI has a range of fast-track screeds, primers and leveling compounds which allow floorcoverings to be installed within a matter of days, ranging from special plasticising and water-reducing admixtures to hydraulic binders designed to allow floorcoverings to be applied in a short period of time.
Mapei’s fast-track system ensures the speedy installation of carpet in the retail area; Mapeproof 1K turbo is a low-VOC one-component rapid drying surface membrane suitable for cementitious substrates with a relative humidity of above 75% and up to 97% (BS 8203), to be followed by Eco Prim Grip multi-purpose primer.
Eco Prim Grip is an aggregated primer which reportedly improves bonding of self-leveling underlayments and is easy to apply with a roller or brush. Latexplan Trade Fast is the third fast-track component in the system.
Latexplan Trade Fast has a high compressive strength which, along with a very low odour ensures it is suitable for use in confined and occupied areas such as schools, airports and retail areas where floors are in constant use and furthermore, the rapid setting smoothing compound can be walked on within one hour, ready to receive floorcoverings in less than three hours.
Finally, Ultrabond Eco Tack is a solvent free acrylic-based adhesive which is designed to provide a tacky film when dry to allow installation and when required, the removal, of carpet tiles.
Whether a refurbishment or a newbuild, Mapei says it offers a comprehensive range of products to suit retail specifications, with products to ensure timescales and deadlines can be achieved in even the tightest scenarios.
