Flowcrete UK has launched a new range of flooring solutions designed to overcome challenging installation conditions.
Flowfresh HF LT, Flowflex Joint Sealant, Isocrete Screedfast Flex and Aqualock One Coat were introduced during a special launch event at Flowcrete UK’s headquarters at the Flooring Technology Centre in Sandbach, Cheshire.
Boasting increased fluidity at lower temperatures, Flowfresh HF LT is easier to spread and finish on construction sites that fall below 15°C. It is manufactured without pine oil to minimise odour during the floor’s installation and is highly resistant to water.
Flowflex Joint Sealant is a one-part, non-sagging sealant, ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications such as pedestrian walkways, warehouses and parking areas.
The hybrid-polymer based elastic sealant has excellent resistance to weathering, ageing and UV exposure and maintains a high mechanical strength and permanent elasticity throughout its lifetime.
Specially formulated to deliver a high strength screed within a very fast curing time, Isocrete Screedfast Flex is a polymer modified cement that, at 20°C, is able to dry to 75% relative humidity (RH) in only 24 hours.
Solvent and water-free, Aqualock One Coat is a epoxy resin, damp-proof membrane. Aqualock allows for the immediate installation of moisture sensitive floor finishes onto damp concrete and cementitious screeds, with a moisture content of up to 97%.
The system has been tested in accordance with the BS 8293 standard to protect against damage from moisture vapour and can be combined with underfloor heating to create an energy efficient floor build-up.
Flowcrete UK’s Managing Director, Kevin Potter, commented: “Our new systems have been formulated to overcome commonplace but difficult problems that contractors frequently have to deal with, such as low ambient temperatures, water marking, slow curing speeds and damp substrates – all of which can make a flooring project difficult or can lead to an early floor failure.
Flowfresh HF LT for example is ideal for creating a robust, seamless and highly effective floor when the temperature falls below the optimum range for resin coatings to cure. This is especially useful in cold rooms or large industrial sites, where the cost and effort of bringing the whole area up to a higher ambient temperature is often prohibitive.”
