A Tremco system solution for LVT floors

THE subfloor serves as the foundation for the entire flooring system, and using TREMCO’s full system solution, you can ensure a subfloor stands the test of time for all your LVT floor coverings, says the company.

Tremco’s ES100 One Coat Epoxy DPM
The installation of a surface DPM is a vital stage in the construction process, for all types of projects. Tremco’s ES100 bonds to the surface of the subfloor, minimising moisture vapour transmission. It, therefore, prevents moisture build-up beneath your LVT floor covering and adds an extra layer of protection, ensuring the longevity of the LVT flooring, says Tremco.

Tremco’s CS190 Gritty Primer
Following on from your DPM, Tremco’s CS190 Gritty Primer can be applied. It’s said to be a ready mixed, ready to use rapid drying primer that can be used on absorbent and non-absorbent substrates. CS190 reportedly provides a textured surface which gives a suitable bonding surface for self-levelling/smoothing compounds and screeds.

Tremco’s SX302 Moisture Tolerant Latex Underlayment
Choosing the right smoothing compound is critical, and Tremco’s SX302 moisture tolerant latex underlayment is said to have been developed to ensure you have a well-prepared base for your LVT floor covering. The company says: ‘SX302 is a moisture tolerant, cement based, latex underlayment developed for use in domestic, light commercial and light industrial environments.’

SF108 Pressure Sensitive Acrylic Adhesive
Finally, Tremco’s SF108 is said to be designed to adhere to your LVT floor covering. It’s solvent free, and non-flammable and you’re guaranteed no serration marks when rolled using a long-handled paint roller, pre-wetted with adhesive. The company says: ‘The texture allows for faster application and ultimately a quicker installation.’

Subfloor preparation is essential for the success of any flooring project and must be one of the first considerations as it helps to extend the life of the finished LVT floor. Says Tremco: ‘Using Tremco’s full system solution, you can ensure a stable foundation for your floors and the team at Tremco are always on hand to provide expert advice to help you achieve an optimum installation where required.’
