Need for Speed Subfloor Solutions

Projects are behind schedule like never before. A few short months ago, no one imagined most project sites would be silent for 8 to
12 weeks or more. Now, it’s time to catch up. Skilled contractor human resources will be stretched. Renovation and new construction
projects will have narrow turnaround times for the flooring teams. And there are high costs when schedules are missed.

All of this creates great opportunities! Nationwide, the project backlog is tremendous with hundreds of millions of commercial square
feet awaiting renovation. Schönox has assembled a series of subfloor solutions built for speed. Faster drying times are a big part of the
equation, but so are faster ways of doing the subfloor work. Together, we can unlock the full potential of Schönox solutions for speed
and subfloor excellence. Let’s maximize the opportunity before us.

Getting from Here to There Quickly and Safely:

Schönox provides a number of benefits where speed and productivity matter most (like now) including:

  • Dramatically condensed installation times – renovate in hours not days
  • Addressing severe or unknown subfloor conditions without investigation or subfloor testing
  • Product solutions to handle subfloor issues ranging from the everyday to the extreme

While speed is important in subfloor renovation projects, Schönox also performs in other keys areas. Our self-leveling compounds have
outstanding compressive strength numbers and handle incredibly varied subfloor conditions. Schönox moisture mitigation systems
address subfloor issues up to and including 100% RH. Our patching and smoothing compounds are the most technologically advanced
with Schönox SL even incorporating moisture resistance qualities. In short, you’ll work confidently with Schönox knowing that speed
has been combined with outstanding performance.

Subfloor situations over which Schönox can be installed without removal of the existing subfloor materials:

Schönox has a product system that can be installed over almost all subfloor situations. Call us and we’ll guide you through any subfloor
issue or project. The following are common subfloor situations where Schönox systems can address these issues, leaving the existing
subfloor in place:

  • Asbestos tiles and adhesives
  • Carpet
  • Tiles including broken and damaged tiles
  • Cutback adhesive
  • Gypcrete
  • Wood
  • Ceramic
  • Concrete slabs with moisture issues up to 100% RH
  • Concrete slabs in poor physical condition
  • Concrete slabs with contaminants

Pathway Forward for Most Floors:

Your Schönox sales and technical advisors can help develop renovation plans tailored for your specific needs, but the following is a
common pathway that addresses challenging subfloor issues with great speed:

  1. Schönox EPA Rapid – Rapid drying moisture mitigation system. One coat to penetrate and fully seal substrates. Dries in 2 to 3 hours.
  2. Schönox SHP – Ready-mixed acrylic primer. One coat over Schönox EPA. Dries in 1 to 2 hours.
  3. Schönox AP Rapid or Schönox ZM Rapid – Rapid setting self-leveling compounds. Schönox AP Rapid is ready for floor covering in 5
    to 6 hours and Schönox ZM Rapid is ready for covering in 1 to 2 hours.
  4. Apply the floor covering of your choice. We can supply the right adhesive for your project, floor covering, and project requirements.

The Fine Points Still Matter:

Schönox is an environmentally responsible choice. All Schönox products contribute to USGBC LEED credits, have low to no VOC
characteristics, and are manufactured in our Germany-based facilities under ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 quality and environmental
management standards. Schönox AP self-leveling compound has special dust reduced properties making it ideal for use in occupied
spaces. Schönox AP contains 50% pre-consumer recycled material. In short, Schönox is an excellent choice for all the right reasons.
