Flowcrete Americas has today announced the launch of a new range of leveling floor compounds, patching screeds and repair mortars, bringing the parent company’s time-proven Isocrete screed technology to the US, Canadian and Latin American markets.
Isocrete is a range of fast-cure, cement based floor leveling compounds, which can be used for sloping, patching and leveling the concrete substrate prior to the installation of floor finishes.
Isocrete systems are easily installed, can be applied to green concrete and offer fast-cure properties to reduce downtime or alternatively in new-build scenarios to minimize any halt to construction – allowing follow on trades swift and efficient access to the site.
Once cured, Isocrete underlayments offer excellent compressive strength, moisture resistance and non-shrinkage properties and can be covered with ceramic tiles, carpet, laminate, vinyl or polymer floor finishes.
Systems available in the range include Isocrete 1500, a rapid drying, pre-mixed, self-leveling cement based compound installed at >3/16” and best suited to general-purpose use and traffic conditions. Isocrete 1500 offer protection against external moisture ingress, condensation and spillages.
Designed to tackle more arduous, heavy load bearing environments, is Flowscreed Industrial Top, a rapid drying, pre-mixed, self-leveling cement based compound, installed at >3/16”, containing durable quartz aggregates for added strength under high traffic conditions.
Completing the range is Isocrete 4000, a trowel-applied protein-free cement-based mortar, installed between 1/4” and 4”, which has been designed to repair, slope or level structurally sound, interior and exterior concrete surfaces that are pitted, worn, scaled or spalled.
Known for its ability to deliver the level best in the industry, Flowcrete’s Isocrete range has been a staple of the international construction market for more than five decades and has been used on a number of landmark projects across the globe including Dubai International Airport, London’s world-famous Wembley Stadium and The Wynn Resort & Casino in Macau as well as a number of major shopping centers and institutional facilities.
Isocrete systems are compatible with the entire range of Flowcrete Americas polymer flooring products including it’s epoxy, polyurethane and resin chemistries and can be used as a turnkey solution to build-up the floor from substrate to finish.
A wide range of complementary products – including wall finishes and coving mortars – are also available.
