Solutions for Multifamily – 1 hour | Provided Upon Request
Learn about proven, reliable & compatible solutions.
Multifamily project types all have similar and challenging subfloor conditions. Years of tenant wear and product life cycle decline have resulted in the need for flooring replacement. When existing flooring is removed, those years of tenant wear reveal ordinary gypsum-based subfloors that are crumbling and unstable with large amounts of flex that can be felt when traversed.
Synthetics and Hybrids – 30 mins | Provided Upon Request
Synthetics brought versatility and strength. Hybrids added speed. Self-leveling technologies have never been better.
Schönox AP, APF and AST are synthetic gypsum products manufactured from the purified emissions taken from the smokestacks of fossil-fueled power plants. Once fortified using a special conversion method, the final synthetic gypsum is far superior to ordinary gypsum. These products can go over many critical substrates, dry to an outstanding 5800 to 6200 PSI, and DO NOT SHRINK. And as with all Schönox products, AP, APF, and AST contain no fly ash.
The next generation of synthetics are hybrid leveling compounds. Schönox AP Rapid and AP Rapid Plus 100% active-drying, rapid-curing self-levelers offer the benefits of both worlds by combining the versatility, strength, and durability of synthetic gypsum with the speed of fast-curing cement.
Why Prep? – 20 mins | Provided Upon Request
Every floor covering installation requires awareness, knowledge, and skill. Regardless of the final floor covering, floor surface preparation is the first and most important step for the installation of any flooring. If not properly prepped many problems can arise including uneven surfaces, poor adherence, cracks, holes, and more. Before proceeding with your next installation review some basic preparation whys that should be followed and a few questions to factor.
