Wood & laminate flooring - Mapei

ULTRACOAT Sport System has been introduced by Mapei, to provide ‘a high-performance system for the decoration and protection of wooden sports-floors’.

Comprising of a base coat, coloured acrylic paint and varnish finish, the system is suitable for application in facilities used for all types of sports and the products have most recently been approved by Fiba for competition levels 1, 2 and 3.

Mapei Ultracoat Premium Base is a two-component, water-based base coat, with what is described as high isolating capacity. ‘Benefits include excellent defect-hiding properties, easy buffing and ease of application,’ says Mapei.

It adds: ‘Ultracoat HT Sport is a two-component, water-based polyurethane varnish, formulated to meet the highest requirements for wooden floors, and it conforms with the European standards for indoor playing surfaces and multi-purpose playing surfaces (EN 14904:2006). The varnish is applied over Ultracoat Premium Base prior to the application of Ultracoat Sport Color, then applied again after the paint as a final finish.

‘Ultracoat Sport Color is a one-component, water-based, coloured acrylic paint, used for marking out playing areas. It’s available in eight Fiba approved colours: yellow, red, blue, light blue, green, white, orange and black.

‘The system is also complemented by several tools, available from Mapei, specifically for the application of the products, including Ultracoat Roller Base Sport and Ultracoat Roller Finish Sport.’
