Levelling compounds approved for marine use

F BALL AND CO’s Stopgap 300 HD heavy-duty floor levelling compound and Stopgap 600 Base deep section compound are now reportedly MED certified for use in marine flooring applications. Tested in accordance with International Maritime Organisation (IMO) standards, both products will carry the Wheelmark logo on product packaging and accompanying literature; the logo is an internationally-recognised mark for MED-certified products that are suitable for use in marine and offshore applications.

Stopgap 300 is a fast drying self-levelling compound said to be suitable for use in light to heavy-duty areas for preparing a wide range of sound absorbent and non-absorbent subfloors, prior to the installation of new floorcoverings.

It’s said to be low odour and protein-free, which also makes it suitable for use in biologically sensitive areas.

Stopgap 600 is a water mix base compound designed for use where floor levels need to be raised quickly and economically. It is designed for application up to a maximum of 50mm and a minimum of 5mm, to provide a sound base, prior to the installation of a recommended levelling compound.

Suitable for pump application, Stopgap 600 is reportedly self-smoothing, dimensionally stable and fast drying and sets in as little as 3 hours.

Stopgap 600 is suitable for light to heavy-duty applications and can be applied over sound absorbent and non-absorbent subfloors, F Ball says.

Like Stopgap 300, it’s said to be low odour and protein-free and can be used over a wide range of subfloor types.

Stopgap 300 and Stopgap 600 join a range of F. Ball levelling compounds and adhesives that have been approved for marine use, the company concludes.
