A Tremco System Solution for LVT floors

Rejoice Chikosi / 23 February 2024

The subfloor serves as the foundation for the entire flooring system, and using Tremco’s full system solution, you can ensure a subfloor that stands the test of time for all your LVT floor coverings.

Tremco’s ES100 One Coat Epoxy DPM

The installation of a surface DPM is a vital stage in the construction process, for all types of projects. Tremco’s ES100 bonds to the surface of the sub floor, minimising moisture vapour transmission. It, therefore, prevents moisture build-up beneath your LVT floor covering and adds an extra layer of protection, ensuring the longevity of the LVT flooring.

Tremco’s CS190 Gritty Primer

Following on from your DPM, Tremco’s CS190 Gritty Primer can be applied. It is a ready mixed, ready to use rapid drying primer that can be used on both absorbent and non-absorbent substrates. CS190 provides a textured surface which gives an excellent bonding surface for self-levelling/smoothing compounds and screeds.

Tremco’s SX302 Moisture Tolerant Latex Underlayment

Choosing the right smoothing compound is critical, and Tremco’s SX302 moisture tolerant latex underlayment has been developed to ensure you have a well-prepared base for your LVT floor covering. SX302 is a moisture tolerant, cement based, latex underlayment developed for use in domestic, light commercial and light industrial environments.

SF108 Pressure Sensitive Acrylic Adhesive

Finally, Tremco’s SF108 is designed to adhere to your LVT floor covering. It is solvent free, and non-flammable and you are guaranteed no serration marks when rolled using a long handled paint roller, pre wetted with adhesive. The texture allows for faster application and ultimately a quicker installation.

Subfloor preparation is essential for the success of any flooring project and must be one of the first considerations as it helps to extend the life of the finished LVT floor. Using Tremco’s full system solution, you can ensure a stable foundation for your floors and the team at Tremco are always on hand to provide expert advice to help you achieve an optimum installation where required.
