From the 11th to the 14th of January in Hannover, Mapei will be on show at the Domotex 2019 international trade fair (Hall 13, Stand C48/C58) with a host of new products for operators from the sector and a range of products for completing the installation of resilient and wooden flooring that have been developed thanks to the Company’s many years of experience in the sector of adhesives and systems for installing resilient, textile, LVT and wooden floor and wall coverings.
The products presented at Domotex 2019 have been created and developed to be safe for both those who apply them and for those who use the areas where they have been applied and to provide superior living comfort. All these products have very low emission of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and are certified EMICODE EC1 RPLUS and Blauer Engel. They also have their own industry-wide EPD (Environmental Product Declaration), a special document that declares the impact they have on the environment throughout their entire life-cycle, measured according to standardised LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) methods.
Mapei products also play an important part in earning green credit ratings all around the world (LEED, BREAM, WELL).
LVT, resilients and textiles:
Mapei introduces ULTRABOND ECO V4 EVOLUTION, the new, universal all-in-one adhesive for installing every type of resilient wall and floor coverings. Particularly suitable for modular LTV, with its rapid, strong initial tack and extended open time it is recommended for use in residential, commercial and industrial settings.
ULTRABOND ECO MS 4 LVT WALL is a revolutionary Mapei adhesive, the only one of its kind in the sector, for installing LVT on floors and walls in damp surroundings. This year at Domotex, Mapei is presenting a new, improved formula which is easier to apply, which also makes it suitable for installing SPC and rigid LVT.
For the LVT market, Mapei is also proposing the non-slip tackifier ULTRABOND ECO TACK 4 LVT, now even better with a new formula: even more rapid, easy to apply and with better tack, recommended for installing loose-lay LVT, SPC and rigid LVT.
Also showcased will be SHOWER SYSTEM 4 LVT for waterproofing and installing LVT, SPC and rigid LVT in bathrooms and damp settings in general: there are three complete systems (SHOWER SYSTEM 4 LVT1, 2, 3) and include three different types of waterproofing product (sheets, liquid membranes and cementitious mortars), which are already part of the Mapei range, innovative ULTRABOND ECO MS 4 LVT WALL adhesive, KERAPOXY 4 LVT grout and MAPECOAT 4 LVT non-slip finish.
For the wooden flooring market, Mapei is presenting the new silylated adhesives ULTRABOND ECO S958 1K, ULTRABOND ECO S LITE and ULTRABOND ECO S PLUS, all completely free of water, solvent, amines and epoxy resin, and with very low emission of volatile organic compounds (EMICODE EC1 RPLUS).
This range of adhesives complies with Euronorm 14293 in the Soft and Hard categories and with ISO standards in the Hard and Hard-elastic categories and are recommended for bonding all types and formats of wooden flooring on any kind of substrate.
ULTRABOND ECO S958 1K is a one-component, silylated polymer-based adhesive classified as hard-elastic according to ISO 17178 standards for installing any type of solid and pre-finished wooden flooring on any type of substrate, including heated screeds.
ULTRABOND ECO S LITE is an innovative silylated polymer-based lightweight adhesive with an extremely low density, which means much lower consumption of product per square metre. This means, when installing flooring, floor layers will only have to handle bags weighing 40% less than normal bags.
The real innovation is represented by ULTRABOND ECO S PLUS, the only one-component, silylated polymer-based adhesive with no ethanol emissions, a further safeguard for the health of floor layers and the environment. All Mapei silylated adhesives comply with the strict requirements of German standards and are all within the emission limits for ethanol set by the standards. With its new ULTRABOND ECO S PLUS adhesive, Mapei is anticipating the terms for certification by making it completely free of methanol emissions.
Amongst the other proposals is ULTRACOAT OIL COLOR low-odour urethane oil finish for colouring wooden floors. ULTRACOAT OIL COLOR may be recoated with two-component finishing products from the ULTRACOAT line, 100% water-based, non-yellowing varnishes used in civil and commercial surroundings subjected to medium and intense volumes of traffic, to protect the surface of wooden floors and provide long-lasting durability.
Complete range of products:
Apart from these new products, Domotex is also the occasion to present Mapei systems to complete the installation of resilient and wooden flooring: binders and pre-blended mortars for screeds, primers, smoothing compounds and complementary products.
