New Self-Leveling Compound and Adhesive Are Latest Schönox Introductions
Las Vegas, NV – January 19, 2016
Schönox is introducing a new self-leveling compound that can be used as a top level wear layer as well as a new acrylic adhesive for use with resilient flooring that is moisture resistant. “These new subfloor products from Schönox are part of the company’s comprehensive commitment to research and development examining the needs of the industry and then creating products to solve important and emerging subfloor challenges,” explained Thomas Trissl, HPS Schönox Principal.
Schönox DSP is a new wear rated, cement based, self-leveling compound for use as a concrete topping with a wide range of uses including those in retail, restaurants, public buildings, entryways, offices, warehouses, and even manufacturing areas with moderate industrial loads. With a compressive strength of 7250 psi, Schönox DSP provides an extremely dense and durable surface that can be stained, sealed, or polished in interior and exterior areas.
HPS 92 is a new acrylic adhesive for use with resilient flooring including vinyl composition, vinyl enhanced, solid vinyl, and LVT tiles and planks and is moisture resistant with subfloors not exceeding 92% RH. The adhesive has a host of benefits including high strength, low odor, VOC compliance, high coverage, and the ability to be used over porous and non-porous substrates.
“DSP and HPS 92 demonstrate how Schönox is listening carefully to the needs of flooring project owners and installers who have communicated the needs for these new products, commented Doug Young, HPS Schönox Executive Vice President. “There is a significant need for a high quality, durable wear layer like DSP as well as the moisture resistance that HPS 92 provides.” Schönox technical and sales staff will be conducting demonstrations and presentations at both the TISE – Surfaces show and the NAHB IBS show in Las Vegas.
Members of the flooring profession and the press are invited to the Schönox booths at TISE – Surfaces (booth 4317) and at NAHB IBS (booth S1829) for product demonstrations throughout both shows.
