Mapei's Planiprep SC™ Skimcoat Helps Create Defect-free Surfaces for Floor Coverings

Published on 2012-12-17. Author : SpecialChem

BEACH, Florida -- In response to installer demand for a strong, smooth surface ready for almost any floor-covering application, MAPEI has developed Planiprep SC™, a high-performance, fiber-reinforced skimcoating compound, to do the job. Its creamy smooth texture trowels easily to create a defect-free surface.

"The characteristics of Planiprep SC deliver an easy-to-apply skimcoat that applies from featheredge up to 1" (2.5 cm), and its rapid-setting characteristic typically makes it ready for floorcovering installation in 30 to 60 minutes, depending on thickness and environmental conditions," said Jeff Johnson, Business Marketing Manager for MAPEI Floor Covering Installation Systems.

Planiprep SC is designed for skimcoating concrete and approved wood subfloors/underlayments. It can be used on interior floors in residential, commercial, heavy-commercial and even industrial applications. Planiprep SC is supplied in 10-lb. (4,54-kg) bags, ready for use whenever and wherever needed to provide the perfect substrate for beautiful flooring installations.
