WHERE flooring installations in educational settings are part of a refurbishment and face pressure to be completed as quickly as possible, such as when taking place during school holidays, F Ball’s Stopgap 1200 Pro ‘high-performance levelling compound offers a time-saving solution’, says the company.
It continues: ‘The fast-setting, fast-drying levelling compound can be applied directly over minimal well-bonded old adhesive residues, including bitumen and carpet tile tackifiers, eliminating the need for mechanical removal. The product is walk-on hard in as little as 60 minutes after application and ready to receive floorcoverings from just four hours. When applied over old adhesive residues, there’s no need to prime beforehand, saving further time.
‘Stopgap 1200 Pro can be applied over a wide range of subfloor types, including sand/cement screed, concrete, granolithic, terrazzo, asphalt, steel, old vinyl asbestos tiles, epoxy and polyurethane resins, ceramic, and quarry tiles, as well as Stopgap waterproof surface membranes.
Furthermore, its low-odour, protein-free formulation allows installations to proceed while adjacent areas remain open to staff and students.’
