Seamless Flooring Systems: Subfloor Preparation and Installation of LVT on Concrete
Description

The Gilt Edge Seamless Flooring System for Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) is a fully integrated system for the installation of LVT floor coverings over a prepared concrete substrate. Incorporated is a substrate moisture control system, substrate levelling correction systems, and high performance adhesives, combined to provide fully warrantied contract commercial installations.

Key Features
  • Substrate moisture control — Using Protect Crete Moisture-Fix/Densi-Proof deeply penetrates new or existing concrete to cure, densify and water proofs; controls excess moisture in new/green concrete with high relative humidity (>95% RH) and allows floor-coverings to be installed soon after application 
  • High Performance substrate priming system that is water-based, VOC compliant and solvent free
  • High Performance VOC Compliant substrate correction — self levelling compounds that provide rapid, high quality surface finishes, with high MPA ratings
  • Dependable industry leading flooring adhesive technology that is fully compliant with the latest emissions and sustainability requirements
Homestar / Green Star (Envirospec) Compliant
